The 2021 Ford Explorer and 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee are two midsize SUVs that provide power, performance, and comfort to its drivers and occupants. Both are SUVs with longevity--the Explorer was introduced in 1991 and the Grand Cherokee in 1992. Over time, they have morphed into well-rounded vehicles that offer advantages and disadvantages to drivers depending on what they want out of their vehicle.

Making a Decision - 2021 Ford Explorer vs 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee
There are a few major differences that set the 2021 Ford Explorer apart from the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee. First, the Explorer provides seating for more passengers, as well as larger overall cargo and passenger areas. The Ford Explorer is a much better value once the standard features, including Ford Co-Pilot360, are taken into account. While Jeep offers more model variations, better off-road capability, and more engine options, the starting price for the Grand Cherokee is higher and just keeps going up to match the Ford's features. For better value, dependability, and safety, the 2021 Ford Explorer is midsize SUV to choose.
