2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford Edge
The time has come, a time that many people dread as the car-buying process can be both confusing and stressful. We here at Williamsburg CDJR want to make this entire experience fun and rewarding, which is why we are going to break down two of the top SUVs on the market today in hopes that you will be able to figure out which one is best for you before even stepping into a dealership. The first SUV we’re looking at is the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which offers off-roading capabilities, great performance-oriented features, and additional comforts for all of your needs. The second vehicle is the 2020 Ford Edge, which includes additional cosmetic options, a few great engine options, and a comfortable interior that is slightly outdated. Keep reading down below to figure out which of these SUVs you should drive home in!
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Power & Handling
With the Grand Cherokee, it should be no surprise that this beast of a performer comes with four unique engines for you to choose from. This enables you to make the best decision for your needs. No matter which engine you end up choosing, you’ll find an eight-speed automatic transmission, which further enhances your drive. The base engine is a 3.6-liter V6, which kicks out 295 horsepower. The more mid-range engine, producing 360 horsepower, is a 5.7-liter V8. For big-time performers, consider the SRT’s 6.4-liter V8 engine, or the Trackhawk’s supercharged 6.2-liter V8. There isn’t a wrong move here, and you will be pleasantly surprised with the drivetrain options.
2020 Ford Edge Power & Handling
Compared to the four powertrain options with the Grand Cherokee, the 2020 Edge only has two engines available for you to choose from. Both of these engines come with an eight-speed automatic transmission, although you’ll only be able to choose from front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The base engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4, which can produce 275 pound-feet of torque and 250 horsepower. The other available engine is a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6, which can create 380 pound-feet of torque and 335 horsepower. While these aren’t the worst engines, the lack of options and the lack of power is pretty upsetting when the Grand Cherokee has performance-oriented engines.
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Features & Design
Like the great number of engines available, the Grand Cherokee doesn’t skimp out on trim level options either! Each of the available trims makes sure that your personality can be properly reflected, and as a result, there is something for everyone here. The base trim, Laredo, throws in standard features like heated side mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, Android Auto, 17-inch alloy wheels, and Apple CarPlay. Another trim option, Limited, includes a power liftgate, a power sunroof, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and a leather interior. The most luxurious option, Summit, includes a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, ParkSense parallel-park assist, and adaptive cruise control.
2020 Ford Edge Features & Design
Ford really tries its best to keep up with the 2020 Edge’s trim lineup. The SE trim comes with a 4.2-inch infotainment display, Wi-Fi, rain-sensing wipers, 18-inch alloy wheels, and Ford F-Pilot 360 driver aids. Another trim, the SEL, comes with power-adjustable front seats, rear parking sensors, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and an 8-inch touchscreen. Additional features can be found with the Titnaium trim, like a Bang & Olufsen audio system, leather upholstery, wireless charging, a 110-volt outlet, and hands-free tailgate operation.
It’s easy to see, even with a cursory glance, that the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee has completely dominated the 2020 Ford Edge. This SUV offers off-roading prowess, performance, and a certain sense of luxury that is hard to come by. Everything you could ever need is available with the Grand Cherokee, and we hope you’ll stop by our dealership and take a look at our inventory!
