Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford Explorer in Albuquerque, NM


We Help Albuquerque Drivers Decide between the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2016 Ford Explorer

Are you in the market for a go-anywhere SUV that'll help you get the most of your daily drive? Then, the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the best SUV for your daily driving needs!

We know that the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is equally prepared for towing demands, off-roading, comfortable commuting and road trips with the family. We also know that the 2016 Ford Explorer simply can't boast the same level of capability as the Jeep Grand Cherokee!

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is available in five trim levels, ranging in caliber from off-road to luxurious to high-performance. The SUV is powered by a Pentastar V6 engine while a HEMI V8 provides authoritative power in the SRT trim level. An EcoDiesel V6 engine also limits fuel intake without sacrificing performance. The Explorer isn't offered with a diesel or V8 engine.

Of course, the Grand Cherokee outshines competitors when it comes to off-road performance. With available four-wheel drive, the Grand Cherokee proves up to the task when navigating wet, icy and snow-covered road conditions.

Now, you'll enjoy every moment spent in the Grand Cherokee's well-crafted, modern cabin that's the "Most Luxurious in Its Class." The Grand Cherokee provides ample passenger and cargo room while placing a world of innovative safety and entertainment features at your fingertips. As you'll find out below, the Grand Cherokee proves to be a far superior option than the Ford Explorer for drivers around Santa Fe, Rio Rancho, Los Lunas, Grants and Albuquerque, NM.
