Rows of Seating
If you’re thinking about leasing or buying a new Ford Explorer near Hutchinson, you’d be remiss not to also check out the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Why? Not only does the Grand Cherokee provide hallmark Jeep off-road capability, but it also beats the Explorer at its own game in so many other ways, like drivetrain options, pricing, and even ground clearance. Interested in learning how the Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford Explorer stack up? Let’s put these two people-haulers head-to-head!
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo starting MSRP is a cool $32,395, slotting it in just below what a new base Ford Explorer costs, $32,765. Because of entry-level features, though, many Buhler drivers prefer the Explorer XLT, which costs a significantly-more $36,675. By contrast, shoppers wanting to step up from an entry-level Grand Cherokee Laredo to the next-level Laredo E will expect to pay around $34,000.
Both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Ford Explorer offer spacious interiors. In fact, the Ford Explorer does provide three rows of seating to the Grand Cherokee’s two. Still, if you don’t frequently carry around six or seven people, the Grand Cherokee makes a fantastic choice, due to an interior with seating for up to five passengers, and a whole host of up-to-date infotainment technologies. Either SUV you choose, you can enjoy smartphone integration via available Apple CarPlay™ and Android™ Auto smartphone integration.
Many new SUVs are upgrading to four-cylinder engines, which can be great for efficiency purposes. But if you’re searching for a truly capable SUV that can tow and provides better off-roading ability for Buhler adventures, then the Jeep Grand Cherokee is likely more suited to you. That’s because when you compare the Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Ford Explorer, the former SUV provides a beefy V6 with a 7,200 lb max towing capacity, while the latter offers up a 4-cylinder base engine and a 5,600 lb max towing capacity.
Most Jeep models are known for being capable off-roaders, and the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee is no exception. That’s in large part because the new Grand Cherokee is Trail-Rated®. It’s also partially because the new Grand Cherokee, vs. the Ford Explorer, offers true four-wheel-drive capability instead of all-wheel-drive via a variety of 4×4 systems like Quadra-Drive ® II. That gives the Grand Cherokee arguably better off-road prowess than the Explorer.
