To help us pick a winner we decided to take a look at what independent review sites have to say about how the two vehicles compare.

In their article, Best Midsize SUVs U.S. News and World Report says "The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee gives you the best of both worlds: a rough-and-ready off-road SUV with a handsome, refined interior and comfortable performance on pavement."  The Jeep Grand Cherokee ranked #5 with an overall score of 8.5, just .3 points behind the #1 ranking.  The Ford Explorer ranked #15 with an overall score of 7.7.

In 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. 2017 Ford Explorer: Compare Cars, The Car Connection does a head to head comparison.  They say "The Jeep Grand Cherokee has managed to hold on to its rugged exterior cues remarkably well while also managing a more modern twist to the profile and finer details. Meanwhile the Explorer has evolved rather dramatically, into a softer-styled vehicle that amounts to less of a truck in design and more of a tall, boxy wagon-still with reasonably good ground clearance, of course.'  There is lots more in the article but their conclusion is short and sweet, "We score the Jeep Grand Cherokee an easy winner over the Ford Explorer ..."
