Giddings drivers searching for a strong and safe SUV for their adventures know to turn to the new Jeep lineup. At the height of capacity and power is the full-size 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which finds a useful sparring partner in the 2020 Ford Explorer. Both offer plenty of interior space and technology-laden cabins to upgrade any road trip or commute around Smithville, but ultimately the new Grand Cherokee makes more of an impression. With an upscale interior and rugged specs, the Grand Cherokee surges ahead. Compare the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Ford Explorer with Oviedo Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT to see which one truly outperforms the competition.

Off-Roading: Explorer or Grand Cherokee

A marked difference in the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Ford Explorer is the off-roading capacity. For some Weimer drivers, this might not seem like a necessary distinction, but the incredible technology and performance systems that provide a Grand Cherokee its superior off-roading toolkit extends far beyond the trail:

  • Hill Descent Control ™
  • 180-degree camera with split-view and washer
  • AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control ™
  • LED Headlamps with Auto High Beams

While the Ford Explorer off-road package is capable on its own terms, it simply doesn’t compare to the legendary Jeep 4×4 technology that keeps your family safe on any terrain, whether purposeful or haphazard. The Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System™ on the Jeep Grand Cherokee has no rival.

Explorer or Grand Cherokee: Performance Overview

To understand whether the Explorer or Grand Cherokee is the right vehicle for your next upgrade, consider that the most notable divide comes from the vast performance differential between these two. While the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers four efficient and powerful engine options, the 2020 Ford Explorer only offers 3.
