2016 Ford Explorer vs 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Design
The 2016 Explorer offers a much higher passenger volume and the ability to fit up to seven passengers thanks to third row seating, while the Grand Cherokee can only fit five. The 2016 Explorer also has more maximum cargo volume and more cargo volume behind the second seat, so you’ll have extra room to bring everything along no matter how many passengers you have. A convenient hands-free power liftgate is available on the 2016 Explorer to make accessing the vehicle with full hands that much easier, but the Grand Cherokee doesn’t offer this feature.
2016 Ford Explorer vs 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Performance
Though both models have available all-wheel drive, the 2016 Explorer has front wheel drive standard, while the Jeep features less ideal rear wheel drive. Similar standard horsepower and torque is had from both standard V6 engines, but the 2016 Explorer offers an updated EcoBoost V6 engine that actually generates more horsepower than the most powerful V8 engine of the Grand Cherokee. The 2016 Explorer also features standard MyKey parental control technology to help promote good driving habits in teens, but the Grand Cherokee doesn’t have this innovation.
2016 Ford Explorer vs 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Safety
Safety is something you should never settle on when it comes to investing in a vehicle. You won't have to worry about that with the 2016 Explorer because it comes with all the safety features you want from a standard rear vision camera that you’ll have to upgrade to get on the Jeep to the available rear seat inflatable safety belts that keep everyone safer in the event of an accident. These important safety belts are not available on the Grand Cherokee. You’ll also have available enhanced park assist on the 2016 Explorer that helps find a suitable parking spot and then takes care of the steering for you as you simply shift and apply the gas and brakes to back safely into the spot. The rear park assist system of the Grand Cherokee can’t compete with this advanced technology, as it can only alert you to rear obstructions.
