Luxury, Comfort and Safety

The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee, available in Edson, Alberta, is appointed with a host of comfort and convenience features such as; heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and power-adjustable front seats. The interior has a classy and very upscale overall design with near-luxury levels of refinement and style. Unfortunately, the Ford Explorer does not stand a chance when it goes up against one of the best and most intuitive infotainment systems in the business. The Uconnect system in the Jeep Grand Cherokee is easy to operate and is controlled via a 7-inch or 8.4-inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard equipment.

The 2020 Ford Explorer also offers some of the luxury features that the Jeep does, such as; heated front and rear seats and a heated steering wheel. Ford has made some improvements to their interior comfort compared to the outgoing model but still comes up a bit short. The SYNC 3 system in the Ford is a pleasure to use, but it does not fare quite as well when going head-to-head with the Uconnect system. The Ford Explorer comes with an assortment of standard safety equipment along with Ford's Co-Pilot360 system, which has some notable features, but it is still in its early stages.
