2020 Ford Explorer | Cocoa, FL

Between the 2020 Ford Explorer and the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee, it's easy to see why the new Explorer is the better purchase. Here are a few reasons to choose a Ford SUV over a Jeep.


When it comes to powertrains, the Grand Cherokee had the racetrack in mind. While the two available Jeep engines provide plenty of power, the three Ford engines provide both ample muscle and impressive fuel efficiency. The hybrid edition of the Explorer gets even more miles, up to 500 on a full gas tank. The Grand Cherokee doesn't offer a hybrid model.


The Ford Explorer has more room inside, with seating up to eight passengers in three rows. The two-row Grand Cherokee only seats five passengers. The third row in the Explorer even has power-fold capabilities so you can access the 87.8 cubic feet of cargo space with just the push of a button. The Grand Cherokee only has 68.3 cubic feet of space.

And the Tri-Zone Climate Control in the Ford allows both front passengers and rear passengers to set their own temperature for maximum comfort.


The available 10.1-inch capacitive portrait touchscreen blows the Grand Cherokee's 8.4-inch display out of the water. It offers split-screen capability and voice commands so you don't have to take your hands off the wheel.

The Explorer also has wireless charging for the front seat and Waze technology. Waze's up-to-the-minute traffic updates allow you to plot out the best route possible.


With the standard Protech I safety package on the Grand Cherokee, you only get two active safety systems included. The standard Ford Co-Pilot360™ system, on the other hand, includes features like Emergency Braking, the Lane-Keeping System, and Automatic High-Beams. The Jeep has parking assist capabilities, but this only means it has sensors to warn you of an impending collision. The available Active Park Assist 2.0 parallel parks for you at the push of a button. And industry-first Micehlin® Self-Sealing Tires help keep you moving when obstacles would puncture a normal tire.

It's no wonder that the Ford Explorer is America's all-time best-selling SUV. To learn more about the Explorer, contact us at Paradise Ford in Cocoa, FL.
