2017 Ford Explorer vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee: Design

Right off the bat, the sleek, modern 2017 Ford Explorer stands apart from the Jeep Grand Cherokee thanks to a bold sculpt and attractive lines. Jeep has stuck with the tired, boxy look for the Grand Cherokee's exterior. The 2017 Explorer also comes better equipped with painted alloy wheels and all-season tires as standard equipment. On the inside, the Explorer wins once again thanks to convenience features such as standard power seats, available premium leather upholstery and turn-by-turn navigation that you won't get in the Grand Cherokee. The 2017 Explorer also features greater front head room, front hip room, front leg room, front shoulder room, rear hip room, rear head room, rear leg room and rear shoulder room than the Grand Cherokee.
