The Ford Explorer comes with a number of conveniences you won’t find on the Jeep® Grand Cherokee.

The Explorer also comes with exclusive Ford+Alexa capabilities. With Ford+Alexa, you can control your compatible smart-home devices, utilize Alexa’s 30,000 skills, access voice-controlled navigation, get live traffic updates, and shop with Amazon Prime right from your vehicle. The Jeep® Grand Cherokee doesn’t offer a similar service.
The Grand Cherokee, you’re stuck with a vehicle that guzzles 21 mpg highway. On the other hand, when you drive the Ford Explorer, you can cruise along with 27 mpg on the highway.
