2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2021 Ford Explorer

For Generations, Jeep has been known for manufacturing some of the most innovative SUVs on the market. Every one of the Jeep's vehicles features a rugged and durable frame and a powerful engine. For people who are looking for a spacious family vehicle that is also capable of going on an off-road adventure, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is the top choice.


The Grand Cherokee comes with a wide range of advanced features that help to make it safe, fun, and innovative. To better illustrate just how impressive this vehicle truly is, we have compared it to another popular mid-sized SUV. Here is a look at how the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee compares to the 2021 Ford Explorer.


What's New for 2021?


Jeep Grand Cherokee



The 2021 Grand Cherokee has received a few modest updates this year. However, there is a new trim level available this year. The new Laredo X model features several high-end amenities including heated front seats and heated steering wheel, an 8.4-inch touchscreen display, and a built-in navigation system.


There is also a special 80th Anniversary Edition that is available as well. This special model comes standard with real leather upholstery and 18-inch alloy wheels. The 80th Anniversary model also comes with every one of the driver-assist features that are offered on the Grand Cherokee.



Ford Explorer



This year, the Explorer also only received minor changes as well. The Explorer also introduces a new trim level to the lineup. The new King Ranch model comes with a few additional interior features including leather seating. N higher trim levels, you can now get more standard features. For example, the Limited, Platinum, and ST models come standard with 8-way power-adjustable passenger seats.



Interior Design



The Grand Cherokee has one of the most spacious and luxurious cabins in its class. The interior can comfortably seat up to five people while providing plenty of legroom and headspace for all occupants. There is also a large rear cargo area that can be expanded by lowering the back seat in a 60/40 split. With both rear seats folded down, the interior is able to provide up to 1,934 litres (68.3 cubic feet) of interior cargo space. There is also a wide range of high-end standard features including dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, heated steering wheel, and a 12-way power-adjustable driver's seat.


The Explorer offers a nice interior. However, it does not come with the same number of standard features. For instance, heated front seats are an optional feature that is only available in higher trim levels.
