How Does the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Compare to Competing Midsize SUVs

If you're currently searching for a new full-size SUV, it's difficult to perform research without coming across the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Ford Explorer. The question is, which full-size SUV is right for you and your family? 

Here at Kernersville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we introduce anyone looking for the perfect combination of luxury, off-road capability and a premium cabin to the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. While we could boast about the Grand Cherokee all day, we would like you to be the judge. Read on to determine if the Grand Cherokee or the Explorer is better for you.

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. the 2017 Ford Explorer

Comfort and Convenience: As we mentioned above, the Jeep Grand Cherokee does an excellent job at adding a premium cabin to its roster of driving benefits. Specifically, the base-edition boasts leather-wrapped features, but spring for a higher-trip to enjoy full leather-wrapped upholstery, as well as a number of other premium features such as heated seats and a dual panoramic sunroof. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is also versatile-so it will adjust accordingly to fit your kids and/or gear.

As for the Ford Explorer, it falls short in the luxury department-no first-class experience here-as well as in regard to comfort as the seats lack proper support.
 

Performance and Reliability: The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee comes standard with a 295-horsepower V6 engine. It also offers the choice of a 5.7-liter V8 engine, which delivers 360 horsepower. As the poster-child for off-roading, you can count on the Jeep Grand Cherokee to deliver exceptional performance in on- and off-road environments. Further, the Jeep Grand Cherokee scored a 3 out of 5 in J.D. Power and Associates reliability test.

As for the Ford Explorer, it offers the choice of three engines, but they're no match for the ones found in the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The standard engine, for instance, is a 3.5-liter V6 engine, which offers 280 horsepower. Not to mention, the Ford Explorer often gets flack for its maneuverability-or lack thereof. As for its reliability score, J.D. Power gave it a 2.5 out of 5.
