If you’re looking for a domestically engineered SUV in the Beaverton area, two of the brands you’re sure to be considering at some point are Jeep and Ford. As far as time honored tradition goes, both of these brands date back to nearly 100+ years apiece! Only one will make its way into your driveway though, so which will it be?



Here’s our take on the 2022 Grand Cherokee L vs. Ford Explorer, and which one we think should take that coveted driveway spot. If you have any questions or comments on what you read here, or would like to test drive these vehicles for yourself, (or one of them, anyway) simply call us or reach out to us online.

Grand Cherokee L or Ford Explorer | Power & Towing

Neither of these vehicles is lacking in power, especially considering available powertrain options, but only the 2022 Grand Cherokee L manages to reach a maximum towing capacity of 6,500 pounds. Pair that with its superior off road capability, and it has the ability to earn your trust as an adventure worthy ride.

Grand Cherokee L vs. Ford Explorer | Entertainment

If you consider yourself much of an audio connoisseur, then your ears will surely perk up to the fact that there are more than twice the amount of speakers in the 2022 Grand Cherokee L as there are in the Ford Explorer. The Grand Cherokee L’s McIntosh® MX950 Entertainment System with 19 speakers blows the Ford Explorer’s 6 Speaker sound system out of the water with angelic highs and bellowing lows in a surround sound so complete, it provides the perfect concert experience from any seat in your Grand Cherokee L.

The Cherokee L is also the only model of the two to feature a passenger-side dashboard touchscreen. Now you can safely keep your eyes on the road while your front passenger passes along directions to your heads up display.
