When you’re shopping for a full-size off-road-ready SUV in the Portsmouth, VA option, we know that you have more than one option. At the end of the day, most drivers are looking for a combination of versatility, off-road capabilities, and in-cabin tech and safety features. Here at Hall Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM Chesapeake, we carry the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but we realize that savvy shoppers will also want to check out SUVs like the 2019 Ford Explorer. Here is a comparison between those two vehicles.


Drivers interested in this category of vehicle are likely curious about what lies underneath the hood. The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee has four available engines, starting with the base 3.6-liter V6, which cranks out 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. In comparison, the base V6 on the Ford Explorer is only good for 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque. At the top of the line, the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee near Suffolk, VA is loaded with a massive 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that cranks out 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque. The 2019 Ford Explorer does not have an available V8 engine.

Off-Road Capability

The new Jeep SUV comes standard with rear-wheel-drive and has multiple all-wheel-drive systems available, making it great for taking it off-roading. In contrast, the 2019 Ford Explorer has one all-wheel-drive system, but it comes standard with rear-wheel-drive.


The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee comes standard with the Uconnect® infotainment system, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. The Ford Explorer has a SYNC® 3 infotainment system, but it doesn’t come standard with those smartphone connectivity systems.

To see why else the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee reigns supreme in the midsize SUV segment, take it for a test drive at Hall Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Chesapeake.
