2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2021 Ford Explorer: Exterior Styling

Starting with the Grand Cherokee's exterior styling, it promotes an image that matches its outstanding performance. You can quickly identify the Grand Cherokee's higher trims as they will have more aggressive styling and bolder accents. Also, it will have Brembo brake callipers, larger exhaust tips, and a more prominent hood on the higher trims. You will notice a modern, family-friendly design compared to the higher trim's sport-specific designs on the lower trims. Depending on the trim, you will have unique wheels that are either 18 or 20 inches in size.

You will have sleek styling and family-friendly touches for the Explorer exterior design, but sportiness is only noticeable on the ST trim. Although the ST has red callipers, they are not Brembo brakes, which can be a shortcoming for this trim. Overall, the Explorer has modern designs, but it isn't easy to compare to the Grand Cherokee's endless offerings.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2021 Ford Explorer: Interior Features

Standard interior highlights for the Grand Cherokee include heated front seats, heated steering wheel, a power liftgate, push-button start, automatic dual-zone climate control, 7-inch customizable in-cluster display, Apple CarPlay, Andriod Auto and remote start.

The standard interior features for the Explorer consist of a 6.5-inch LCD in-cluster display, electronic tri-zone climate control, push-button start and rotary gear shift dial. You can get a remote engine start and a heated steering wheel for the base model as optional. Both vehicles have similar interior features, but with the Explorer, you would have to pay more for the same features that are standard on the Jeep.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2021 Ford Explorer: Engine Options

The Grand Cherokee has four engine options: The standard 3.6-litre V6 Pentastar, a 5.7-litre V8 HEMI, a 6.4-litre SRT HEMI V8 and a supercharged 6.2-litre SRT HEMI V8. Those engines have high output, and they utilize an eight-speed automatic transmission to drive all four wheels.

On the other hand, the Explorer has a 2.3-litre EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder to power its base model. Upgrading to higher trims gets you the optional 3.3-litre hybrid engine, while 3.0-litre Ecoboost powers the ST and Platinum trims. The ST trim has a higher power output from the same engine as the Platinum by adding twin turbos. Even with the ST's highest output engine, it can't compare to the Grand Cherokee's supercharged 707 horsepower 6.2-litre HEMI V8.
