2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Made to Outwork Ford Explorer Ed Koehn Chrysler Comparison Favors Jeep SUV

GREENVILLE, Mich., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Sport utility vehicles have enjoyed a recent rise in popularity. In an increasingly competitive category, Ed Koehn Chrysler found it useful to compare new models of two popular SUVs on the market, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2014 Ford Explorer.

On the surface, the 2014 Grand Cherokee and 2014 Explorer appear to offer a similar utility and value. Both vehicles register 290 horsepower and 24 highway miles per gallon. Going beyond the numbers, however, the real difference between the two SUVs is seen in actual performance and driver experience.

Though Grand Cherokee and Explorer offer identical levels of horsepower, the extra torque delivered by Jeep's 3.6L Pentastar engine allows drivers to perform more work with the Grand Cherokee. Whereas a fully equipped 2014 Ford Explorer is capable of towing a maximum load of 5,000 pounds, a similarly equipped Grand Cherokee can handle up to 6,200 pounds.

In addition to towing capacity, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee exceeds Ford in interior luxury and powertrain warranty. Jeep's reputation for matching performance with a luxurious interior experience is long established. The application of Jeep's reputation to the 2014 Grand Cherokee creates an inviting driving experience that the Ford Explorer cannot match.

Overall ownership experience is also supported by Grand Cherokee to an extent not seen by Ford and the Explorer. The powertrain warranty included with the Grand Cherokee goes 40,000 miles beyond the Ford Explorer's warranty. For drivers looking to consistently put their SUV to work, the peace of mind inherent to the Grand Cherokee adds to the already superior experience offered by the vehicle.

The hard working and luxurious 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is available now at Ed Kohen Chrysler in Greenville, MI. Ed Koehn Chrysler is a certified Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram dealership serving the Michigan communities of Greenville, Grand Rapids, and Lansing.
