2014 Ford Expedition vs. 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Expedition offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Jeep Grand Cherokee. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Ford Expedition and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Expedition as you will with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Ford Expedition is somewhat more expensive than the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Expedition is much higher than that for the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Expedition is much wider than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Expedition, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Ford Expedition does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Handling
The Ford Expedition has a significantly larger turning radius than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Ford Expedition for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Expedition has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Ford Expedition more than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Ford Expedition, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Warranty
The Ford Expedition comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
