Let's see how the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee competes with the Ford Explorer.
As these two dependable SUV's battle it out, what will you find under the hood? Three available engines in the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee -- a 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel with 240 hp, a 3.6L V6 with 290 hp, and a commanding 5.7L V8 with 360 hp. All are mated to an 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, and four AWD systems are available. Not so much in the Ford Explorer, which only offers one 4x4 system to go with two of its 3 available engines -- a 3.5L V6 with 290 hp, a 2.0L EcoBoost I4 with 240 hp (FWD only), and a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 with 365 hp. All are coupled with a 6-speed automatic, with paddle shifters only available with the V6 engines. While the engines are closely matched, the options are not, with the 2015 Jeep Cherokee's more versatile transmission and 4x4 systems leaps and bounds over the Explorer.
Awarded the "2015 Green SUV of the Year" by Green Car Journal, the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee equipped with the EcoDiesel V6 engine garners an amazing 30 mpg on the highway, while only the I4 EcoBoost in the Explorer comes close with its 28 highway mpg.
