2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. 2017 Ford Flex Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Jeep Grand Cherokee, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Flex will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Flex.
