Explorer or Grand Cherokee: Off-Road Capabilities

Right out of the gate, the Trail Rated® Tough badge and the Jeep® Brand 4×4 system makes Grand Cherokee a perfect pick for better traction on Pocatello roads in inclement weather, and over the hills. Engine options offered reach performance specs as high as 707 hp in the Supercharged 6.2L V8 packaged with the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk® model. Grand Cherokee can also be protected and specially-sealed to handle up to 20 inches of water if you’re looking to ford small streams. And the available Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System can even adapt to rough paths and climates you’ll be handling. To obtain similar features in the Explorer, you’ll pay a lot more for an upgraded tow package.
