The research process is important, and we understand that many of our customers like to shop different makes and models. While we may be partial to the Jeep Grand Cherokee, it far outshines the competition, such as the 2019 Ford Explorer.

Performance

The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee effortlessly takes the cake when it comes to driving dynamics. It boasts five drive modes to customize your ride: Auto, Snow, Sport, Track, and Tow. These drive modes form the innovative Selec-Terrain® traction management system, which gives the driver full control of how the Jeep Grand Cherokee maneuvers in various road conditions. Of course, the only way to appreciate the drive modes is to take this model for a test drive. This new Jeep SUV offers the choice of four 4x4 systems, which allow the drive to maximize traction on all four wheels. These include Quadra-Drive II®, Quadra-Trac II®, Quadra-Trac I®, and Quadra-Trac® Active On Demand. To boot, there are four engines to choose from:

  • 6-liter Pentastar® V6: 260 horsepower, 260 lb-ft of torque
  • 7-liter HEMI® V8: 360 horsepower, 390 lb-ft of torque
  • 4-liter V8: 475 horsepower, 470 lb-ft of torque
  • 2-liter Supercharged V8® V8: 707 horsepower, 645 lb-ft of torque

While the 2019 Ford Explorer is impressive in its own right, it fails to offer as much versatility and power. There are three engines available in the Ford SUV, with a power range of 290 to 365 horsepower. Similarly, the new Ford Explorer only offers options for rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, which drastically reduces capability when encountering off-road conditions.
