Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford Explorer

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford ExplorerAs a Brockton area dealership, we know that there’s so much to see and do around town. We also know that a capable, feature-rich SUV can be the key to getting out and doing it all. If this sounds like you, then you may have considered models like the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee or Ford Explorer.

Both are great choices! However, we wanted to find out which was the best fit for drivers around Randolph and Stoughton. So, we compared the Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Ford Explorer. Check out what we learned below!

Jeep Grand Cherokee Ford Explorer
Maximum Towing Capacity 7,200 pounds 5,600 pounds
Maximum Horsepower 707 horsepower 400 horsepower
4WD/AWD Available Available

Grand Cherokee vs Ford Explorer: Capability

The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2020 Ford Explorer offer impressive performance overall. They each have powerful engine options along with balanced handling for any driving situation.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford Explorer

For instance, they both have an available 4-wheel drive (4WD) or all-wheel drive (AWD) system that automatically adjusts torque distribution to help improve traction control during all-weather or all-terrain driving.

They also have a drive mode select system that lets you choose from a variety of terrain types to fully optimize your handling. Modes include settings for Auto, Snow, Sand, and more.

While the Ford Explorer only has the one AWD system, the Jeep Grand Cherokee gives you a choice of four different systems, so that you can choose the handling ability you need to be at your best. These are:

  • Quadra-Drive® II
  • Quadra-Trac II®
  • Quadra-Trac I®
  • Quadra-Trac® Active On-Demand 4WD

With just the single AWD system, handling in the Ford Explorer might not be as optimized as what you may experience in the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Engine Specs and Towing Capacity

If you’re looking for a lot of engine power, you’ll probably like that both SUVs also offer a V6 engine that delivers plenty of strength.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford Explorer

For the Grand Cherokee, the V6 engine can tow a maximum of 6,200 pounds when properly equipped. The V6 engine in the Explorer maxes out at a towing capacity of 5,600 pounds.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee makes its V6 engine standard, while the Ford Explorer requires you to upgrade to its top-tier engine before this kind of power is available.

With the Grand Cherokee, you’ll get three V8 engine options on top of the standard V6 engine. These are:

  • 5.7L HEMI® V8
  • 6.4L SRT® V8
  • 6.2L Supercharged V8

The V8 engines have a horsepower output as high as 707 for the supercharged engine and 475 horsepower for the 6.4L engine. They can also all tow 7,200 pounds. The highest horsepower you get with the Ford Explorer is 365 or 400, depending on the trim level.

With higher top horsepower outputs and more towing capacity, drivers in the Jeep Grand Cherokee may get more of the power and strength they’re looking for than those in the Ford Explorer.
