Comparing the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford Explorer in Truro, NS

We want you all to imagine a world where if you were to go out for a drive, you wouldn't see an SUV on the road. As if they never existed and automotive consumers from Bible Hill, Nova Scotia and Brookside, Nova Scotia were still driving around in compacts, sedans and trucks. Even in this far-fetched reality, the Jeep Grand Cherokee would still exist. When it was first introduced, consumers didn't think anything of it, just an oversized hunk of metal. However, one thing that many missed at that time was the Jeep Grand Cherokee was ahead of its time; even though it resembled a large SUV, it was one of the only ones that didn't make your bottom hurt after a long drive. It had established itself in the realm of luxury SUVs even before they really existed. Let's fast-forward over two decades, and you will find an SUV that has not only surpassed its predecessor but overcome the fierce competition in its hotly contested segment. Its appeal lies in its ability to be tailored to the needs and wants of automotive consumers.

The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee faces a tough group of competition from Honda, Toyota, GM, and Chevrolet; however, a vehicle that has been knocking at the door for quite some time is the 2020 Ford Explorer. Though it poses a strong challenge to the Grand Cherokee, it falls short to meet the features and benefits that are offered by the Jeep.

Design Comparison

The Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ford Explorer are both popular vehicles in their respective SUV segment. They have many points in common; however, they differ in some of the main features that automotive consumers appreciate. One thing to note is that even though the Grand Cherokee is in the same segment, by overall dimensions, it is a smaller vehicle. The Explorer does include a third-row; however, it is quite tight and only good for children. 

The exterior design of both vehicles is attractive in their own right. However, step inside and find a cabin full of luxury features but not at a luxury price point. The Grand Cherokee offers premium materials throughout the cabin with an ergonomically laid out interior. The Explorer offers luxury as well though the MSRP is higher. The comfort level of the Grand Cherokee seats is far superior to the Explorer in both the front and second rows, while the drive is unmatched.

Performance Comparison

Under the hood, you will find four different engine options on the Jeep and four on the Ford. The Grand Cherokee wins the power game with a base 3.6-litre V-6 and a top of the line 6.2-litre supercharged V-8 that produces 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque. The Explorer comes standard with a 2.3-litre turbocharged four-cylinder and a top of the line 3.0-litre V-6 twin-turbo with 400 horsepower and 415-lb-ft of torque. Each vehicle offers fantastic engine options; however, the Grand Cherokee, with its V-6 and V-8 power plants, outperforms the Explorer. 

The Explorer cannot match the Grand Cherokees' ruggedness and off-road capabilities as it offers a true 4x4 experience. In terms of safety, both vehicles featured decent safety ratings; however, they do both offer driver assistance features to help keep you and your occupants safe.
