2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. 2016 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.

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 Jeep Grand Cherokee is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Flex. 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 Jeep Grand Cherokee is much higher than that for the Ford Flex.

Dimensions
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is about the same width as the Ford Flex. If you go with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Flex.

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

Handling
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Ford Flex, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Ford Flex for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Ford Flex.

Utility
