2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. 2020 Ford Explorer

Amid midsize SUVs, you find a lot of commonalities when it comes to performance, efficiency, and features amid the base trim levels, which is especially true for the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ford Explorer. But for the Grand Cherokee, things quickly change as you explore the options of the higher, yet still affordable, trim levels. In this All Star Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Ford Explorer comparison, you’ll find that only the Jeep has the right combination of configurations and options to perfectly suit your off-road lifestyle or St. Louis commute.

Grand Cherokee or Explorer: Engine Specs

When considering the Ford Explorer or Grand Cherokee at a glance, you’ll notice reliable midsize SUVs with competent horsepower and available 4×4/4WD systems. But what if you want to go off-roading? What if you want to tow a trailer or a boat? When you start exploring the “what ifs,” the Grand Cherokee stands out.

Just look at these engine options:

  • 2020 Ford Explorer Engine Specs
    • 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4 with 300 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque
    • 3.0L EcoBoost® V6 with up to 400 hp and up to 415 lb-ft of torque
  • 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engine Specs
      • 3.6-liter V6 with 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque
      • 5.7-liter Hemi V8 with 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque
      • 6.4-liter V8 with 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque
  • And the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, with a supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat V8, outputs 707 horsepower and lb of torque

Grand Cherokee or Explorer: Off-Road Features

Only the Jeep Grand Cherokee, with its Trail Rated® Tough badge, can truly handle all the off-road challenges the Florissant area has to offer. As if the raw power of the Grand Cherokee isn’t enough, the SUV is also built to be able to ford up to 20 inches of water in case you need to cross streams or creeks. And only the Grand Cherokee comes with ideal off-roading suspension features, like the self-leveling Quadra-Lift air suspension.

The 2020 Ford Explorer is not without its own perks on its four-wheel drive system. The Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System™, for example, that includes features like Hill Descent Control™ and AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™. But whether you’re at the base trims or top-of-the-line configurations, the Explorer can’t keep up with the Jeep’s rugged, off-roading capabilities.

Interior Features

In this comparison, you see two infotainment systems going head-to-head: Uconnect® and FordPass™. Out of the gate, standard Uconnect® features inside the Grand Cherokee make the driver feel completely connected to their car and smart devices, with access to both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. For audio buffs, Jeep also offers an available Harman Kardon® premium sound system.

FordPass™ gives Explorer drivers the ability to connect to the world wide web with a Wi-Fi Hotspot, and SYNC® 3 helps smartphones stay connected. But ultimately, Ford requires Florissant drivers to upgrade to higher priced packages for more high-tech features.
