Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Ford Edge

While many Mississauga drivers are comparison shopping for the perfect crossover SUV that seems like a car and has two rows of seats, the question often comes up about which is better – the Jeep Grand Cherokee or the Ford Edge? They are both extremely similar with a stylishness and power that rival each other. Here’s a brief rundown of how they compare in the finer details.

In powertrain the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ford Edge are almost identical. While the Jeep Grand Cherokee has a 3.6-litre V6 engine, the Ford Edge has a 3.5-litre V6 engine. The Grand Cherokee delivers 290 horsepower and the Edge delivers 285 horsepower. When it comes to torque, the Jeep can give 260 lb-ft of torque while the Ford gives 253 lb-ft of torque. And the similarities just go on and on: while the  Jeep Grand Cherokee can get 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway, the Ford Edge comes in at 18 mpg city and 25 mpg on the highway.

The Ford Edge provides some substantial improvements, including MyFord Touch options that include supremely high-quality sound in an available 12-speaker Sony system. In the mid-level the Ford Edge comes with a power-adjustable driver’s seat, rear-sensing park assist, exterior trim and beautiful 18-inch wheels.

But when it comes to solidity and power, the substantial quality of the Jeep Grand Cherokee cannot be surpassed. The Jeep’s strong skeleton provides extra security for highway driving, and its weightiness provides a solid feel that is uncommon among Jeeps. Its combined luxury interior and strong solidity make the Grand Cherokee a definite winner for Mississauga drivers. Offered as an option in the  Jeep Grand Cherokee are a turbo-diesel engine as well as two different V8 variations.

The Grand Cherokee’s unibody construction has a weightiness and independent aluminum suspension reminiscent of the Mercedes-Benz M-class, which it’s similar to. The fourth generation classic sport-utility SUV is a reliable companion for either city, highway or off-road driving.

All Chryslers have had numerous improvements to their interior quality, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee is no exception, with its soft surfaces, comfort and first-class luxury. With generous cargo space and ample room for passengers, the Jeep Grand Cherokee gives you everything you need. Its butch performance is matched by its sporty good looks, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee can plough through deep sand with ease, keep you safe and secure on the highway, or drive you around town in great style.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee takes its off-road capability very seriously, and comes in three different variations of its four-wheel drive systems. As well, you won’t be disappointed in the number of choices in trim levels, with the Laredo, Laredo E, 75th Anniversary Edition, Limited, Limited 75th Anniversary Edition, Overland, High Altitude and Summit trim levels offering everything you need.
