2017 Ford Expedition vs. 2017 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
The Jeep Grand Cherokee requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Expedition, making it more convenient to drive.

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which has a much lower MSRP. 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
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Expedition is clearly the choice over the Jeep Grand Cherokee for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Expedition has a little more 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.
