Ford vs. Jeep: Off-Road Features

As you might have already guessed, the Ford is no match for the off-road prowess of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which has earned a Trail Rated® badge for its ability to tackle off-roading in the Westbury area and beyond. The Grand Cherokee can ford up to 20 inches of water in case you need to cross streams or creeks, and comes with available features like the self-leveling Quadra-Lift air suspension.

With the 2020 Ford Explorer, drivers have Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System™ on their side. But with available Jeep features like the Quadra-Trac II low-range gearing, electronic rear differential, adjustable air suspension, and underbody skid plates—not to mention a maximum towing capacity of 7,200 pounds—the Grand Cherokee is the off-road king of SUVs.
