Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford Explorer

Sports Utility Vehicles, or SUVs, are so beloved by their fans for their rare combination of performance, style and utility. Each year, the competition to be the best SUV on the market is fierce, and 2016 is no different with the latest versions of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Ford Explorer.

While both vehicles have their winning points, the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee sets itself apart as the SUV of choice for discerning automotive consumers.

Read on to learn more about the intense competition between the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2016 Ford Explorer, and make sure to test drive the Cherokee at Allen Mello CDJR.

Look for Superior Design

Because of their extreme utility, SUVs generally are not considered to be the most stylish vehicle choice, but this could not be further from the truth when it comes to the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

This year's Cherokee builds off of its classic design with a more attractive, modernized grille, as well as sleeker lines. The Grand Cherokee also offers almost an inch more of ground clearance than the Ford Explorer, making the Cherokee the choice for SUV lovers who want an increased off-road capacity to go along with modern style.

For a clean, timeless look that is recognizable throughout the world, the Grand Cherokee is the clear choice.

Experience Unmatched Performance

At the end of the day, SUVs are meant to be performance vehicles, and this is the area where both the Grand Cherokee and the Explorer really shine. The engines featured on these vehicles are fairly similar-3.5 liters for the Explorer and 3.6 for the Cherokee-with both capable of producing 290 horsepower.

However, the Grand Cherokee can produce more torque, meaning more power is transmitted to your wheels, which is exactly what you want in a utility vehicle.

Because these cars are so similar in this department, it really comes down to a matter of choice, but the added torque of the Cherokee should give it a definite edge.

Ride in Complete Safety

If you are driving in Nashua, Merrimack or Manchester, then it's likely that safety is at the top of your list when looking for a new vehicle. Safety is truly the category where the Cherokee pulls away from the pack, offering features to keep you safe whether you are inside or outside of your vehicle.

Stability control, an anti-theft system and airbags mounted throughout the interior make the Grand Cherokee an SUV that is truly committed to all-encompassing safety for its passengers. While the Explorer is a safe vehicle in its own right, it simply cannot match the security offered by the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Test Drive the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

In a number of important categories, the 2016 Ford Explorer and the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee proved themselves to be the highest quality SUVs available on the market today. In a head-to-head contest, however, the Grand Cherokee easily showed itself to be the SUV at the top of its class. With a combination of style, power and safety, the Grand Cherokee should be the number one choice for SUV enthusiasts everywhere.

For automotive customers in Merrimack, Manchester and Nashua, the best way to test drive the excellent 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is to visit Allen Mello CDJR.
