That's why the team here at JPS Ford has taken the time to show you how it stacks up to the class-similar Chevrolet Traverse & Grand Cherokee. When you take a closer look at how the latest Ford Explorer release stacks up against class similar vehicles like Jeep Grand Cherokee you won't be able to wait to get behind the wheel. Our research is just one of the ways we help drivers from the Arcadia Area.

Ford Explorer vs. Chevrolet Traverse

  • Explorers 24-MPG highway fuel efficiency rating tops that of Chevy Traverse - meaning you'll be saving on gas every time you head off to work or are taking a weekend vacation. That means you can spend more on fun during every adventure.
  • Every new Ford Explorer comes with the optional Ford SYNC onboard technology system. SYNC lets you use your voice to make a call, listen to music, voice-control, select apps with SYNC AppLink and much more. Voice-activated SYNC technology also helps you keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel.
  • Ford Explorer isn't just more comfortable on the inside, it's more comfortable on your wallet as well. That's because the vehicle's starting MSRP of $31K makes it nearly $6K less expensive than the class-similar Chevrolet Traverse.
Ford Explorer vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • Traveling with family, friends or your soccer team? You can fit everyone in the seven-passenger Ford Explorer. In Jeep Grand Cherokee - you'll be leaving two people at home, as it only has seatbelt seating locations for five.
  • If you're moving furniture, headed to the dorms or just gearing up for that big conference, you'll have plenty of room for all your cargo thanks to Ford Explorer's gigantic 82-cubic feet of cargo capacity with the rear seats folded. You can try to get it all into Jeep Grand Cherokee, but it won't be easy: it's seats-folded cargo space is 20-cubic feet less.
  • You don't have more room for friends and all your things, you'll have more spending money too. That's because Ford Explorer's entry-level MSRP of $32K costs $6K less than Jeep Grand Cherokee.
