2019 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2019 Ford Explorer

Looking for a reliable SUV to take you on an adventure and away from Huntingdon for a while? Take a look at the 2019 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2019 Ford Explorer to see how they compare. When you’re ready for a test drive, stop by the Price Motor Sales showroom to see for yourself why so many drivers choose Jeep SUVs!


The Ford Explorer delivers an impressive 290 hp, but Jeep’s answer to this is the affordable Jeep Cherokee price and the improved MPG for both city and highway – an important factor for any Mount Union driver. What the Cherokee may lack in get-up-and-go on street driving, it more than makes up for when overcoming rough terrain, during which its engine build is essential.The Cherokee comes standard with an inline-four engine, but if you plan to tackle more intense terrains, you might consider upgrading to the Trailhawk, which would award you these features:

  • 3.2-Liter V6 24-Valve VVT Engine
  • Engine Immobilizer
  • Heavy Duty Engine Cooling
  • Standard Duty Engine Cooling ® df

Off-Road Capabilities

The Trail Rated® Jeep Cherokee is perfect for the adventurous spirit with its off-road capabilities that allow you to conquer all terrains with confidence. When it comes to exploring unknown territory, you can count on the Uconnect® navigation system. Drivers can take the Ford Explorer off-road thanks to its optional Terrain Management System™, but the Cherokee offers a higher ground clearance, which is essential when driving on uneven terrain. If you plan to conquer more extreme off-road terrain, it may be worth your while to upgrade to the Cherokee Trailhawk, which would add the following features:

  • Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System
  • Selec-Speed® Crawl Control
  • Skid Plates
  • 2 Front Tow Hooks / 1 Rear Tow Hook
  • Jeep Active Drive II and Jeep Active Drive Lock 4×4 Systems

Similarly, if you upgrade your Explorer to the Ford Explorer Sport, you will enjoy a few upgrades, but you won’t get quite as much for your money as you will with Jeep. With the Explorer Sport, these are the off-road-ready upgrades:

  • AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability
  • Intelligent 4WD
  • Terrain Management System™ standard

Cargo Space

Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a seasoned road tripper, cargo space is essential. The Jeep Cherokee has you covered with 24.6 cubic feet of cargo space, and you may be surprised to hear this is more space than the Ford Explorer offers. That being said, if you have a large family, the Ford Explorer does offer a third row of seating, which accounts for some of that lost space.If extra seating is not a priority for you, the Cherokee offers more space from a smaller SUV, which allows for easier handling. When it comes to standard interior details, the Cherokee and the Explorer measure up pretty equally with both offering basic features like air filtration, 12-volt powerpoints, cargo loops, and a manually controlled day/night rearview mirror. The Cherokee does come standard with a few more ideal features that the Explorer doesn’t, such as:

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring Display
  • Vinyl Door Trim Panel
  • 7-inch Touchscreen Display
  • Electronic Vehicle Information Center
