GREEN BAY, Wis., June 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- It doesn't quite seem fair to have a competition between the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and any other vehicle in its class. As the most awarded SUV of all time, the Grand Cherokee has paved the way for all of the rugged SUVs with a taste for luxury that have come after it. As far as capabilities are concerned, the 2013 Ford Edge makes a strong case for itself, but between the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2013 Ford Edge, there can only be one true winner. The new Jeep in Green Bay WI is ever-impressive, and certainly isn't going down without a fight.

The 2013 Ford Edge holds its own with the 2.0L Ti-VCT EcoBoost engine. Earning up to the same EPA-estimated 30 hwy mpg as the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Edge can keep up with the iconic SUV when it comes to delivering an efficient performance. Its strong performance allows it to tow up to 3,500 pounds at one time, and inside the vehicle it offers 40.7 inches of best-in-class legroom as well as 68.9 cu-ft of storage space when all seats are folded and stored.

In order to keep up with the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, a vehicle will have to surpass it by more than just .4 inches or .6 cu-ft. The all-new Grand Cherokee is available with the 3.0L EcoDiesel engine, which delivers an estimated 30 hwy mpg and a driving range of up to 730 miles. Using clean diesel technology, the engine provides a greener performance that reduces CO2 emissions without losing the Jeep muscle. Capable of towing up to 7,400 pounds, when properly equipped, it's safe to say the Grand Cherokee makes up for offering only 40.3 inches of legroom and 68.3 cu-ft of cargo room.

Staying loyal to its rugged Jeep roots, the Grand Cherokee continues to sport its Trail Rated badge and unmatched off-road capability. The SUV's ability to conquer the most difficult terrain in the world is a testament to its overall performance. From simple daily driving to off-road challenges, the Grand Cherokee has some of the best traction, ground clearance, articulation, maneuverability and water fording capabilities in the auto industry.

When it comes down to it, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee really can't be surpassed. For more information on the award-winning Jeep, contact S&L Motors in Green Bay WI today.
