Ford Explorer Vs Jeep



If you’re driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee and are ready for what’s next, we can give you a SUV full of reasons to flip for the new Ford Explorer. One reason being that Tower Ford will give you an extra $1,000 cash bonus when you trade in your Jeep. While the Explorer and Grand Cherokee have competed at the top of the SUV heap for years, and engine/trim choices can make them comparable in many ways, there are clear differences in areas that are important in a 4WD family SUV. The most evident in capacity, ride quality, safety and off-roading. Another being that the Ford Explorer has been the #1 selling SUV for the past 27 years!
