Big SUVs Fight: Jeep vs Ford

December 11, 2012 at 09:31

The fight for today will involve two big models. When we think of an upper-scale car in terms of size and in terms of its position on the car market, we for sure will think about new Jeep. Therefore today we are going to see new 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee fighting with another big and powerful model in the sport utility vehicles market – 2013 Ford Explorer. Let’s see which one will win!

The prices of both models are quite high. They are not critical, as we are still talking about the affordable luxury, but not everyone will be able to pay about $29,700 for new Jeep of the year 2013, as well as $29,200 for new Ford Explorer. Now let’s turn to the inner side of the vehicles. New Jeep Grand Cherokee got the 3.6-Liter V6 that is capable of producing 290-horsepower. New Ford in turn is equipped with a core of 3.5-Liters though with the same V6 and with the same power output of 290-horses. Therefore as we can expect, new Ford is a little more economic in terms of fuel, it offers 17 miles per gallon in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, while new Jeep is on average one mile behind.

So in the end, we think that new Ford Explorer has a little more than new Jeep. Therefore Ford wins!
