2014 Ford Flex vs. 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Ford Flex will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Convenience
With the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Flex, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Clearly, the Ford Flex is a better financial choice over the Jeep Grand Cherokee, when considering 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 Ford Flex carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Dimensions
The Ford Flex is about the same width as the Jeep Grand Cherokee. If you go with the Ford Flex, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Ford Flex and the Jeep Grand Cherokee are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Ford Flex 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 Flex for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Flex has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Utility
The Ford Flex offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Ford Flex has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

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