SUV Comparison: 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Ford Explorer

Whether you need a tough and spacious SUV for Anderson or the ultimate family vehicle for Chico, many savvy drivers find themselves choosing between the Explorer or Grand Cherokee when shopping for powerhouse SUVs around Red Bluff. While the Explorer has its advantages, we feel that the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the top SUVs on the market today for its exceptional performance and budget-friendly price. Take a look at our head-to-head comparison below:

Standard Performance

Comparing the Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Ford Explorer, the two share similarities like standard rear-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive. Additionally, both generate around 300 hp with their base engine options. The Ford Explorer offers an inline-4, while the Grand Cherokee’s V6 power is a little quieter and smoother overall. Despite the minor differences, the price difference is significant. You’ll pay over $4,500 more for a Ford than a Jeep. In fact, you could upgrade from the base Grand Cherokee Laredo trim to the Upland trim and still get a lower price than the base Explorer.

Upgraded Options

If you’re looking for that customized performance, does the Ford Explorer or Grand Cherokee offer better upgrades? The Ford Explorer has V6 engines and even hybrid powertrains to give drivers additional options, but they pale in comparison to the adrenaline-boosting engines on the Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup.

From the rugged Trailhawk with Quadra-Drive® II 4×4 System to the supercharged Trackhawk and SRT trims with 707 hp, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is simply in a league of its own – not to mention the 1,600-pound towing advantage. Check out some of the additional Jeep perks:

  • Trail Rated® testing
  • Jeep® Brand 4×4 systems
  • ProTech I and II Package
  • Off-road accessories
  • And more!
