Our immediate response, without hesitation, Brooklyn Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM. We provide a variety of options to drivers who are interested in a new Jeep or a RAM truck. Stop by our Brooklyn, NY car dealership to explore impressive new models, such as the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee. To see how it stacks up against the competition, we put it head-to-head against the 2019 Ford Explorer.


The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a stunner when it comes to on- and off-road performance. It boasts five drive modes to customize your ride: Auto, Snow, Sport, Track, and Tow. These drive modes form the innovative Selec-Terrain® traction management system, which gives the driver full control of how the Jeep Grand Cherokee maneuvers in various road conditions. Of course, the only way to appreciate the drive modes is to take this model for a test drive. This new Jeep SUV offers the choice of four 4x4 systems, which allow the drive to maximize traction on all four wheels. These include Quadra-Drive II®, Quadra-Trac II®, Quadra-Trac I®, and Quadra-Trac® Active On Demand. To boot, there are four engines to choose from:

  • 6-liter Pentastar® V6: 260 horsepower, 260 lb-ft of torque
  • 7-liter HEMI® V8: 360 horsepower, 390 lb-ft of torque
  • 4-liter V8: 475 horsepower, 470 lb-ft of torque
  • 2-liter Supercharged V8® V8: 707 horsepower, 645 lb-ft of torque

While the 2019 Ford Explorer is impressive in its own right, it fails to offer as much versatility and power. There are three engines available in the Ford SUV, with a power range of 290 to 365 horsepower. Similarly, the new Ford Explorer only offers options for rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, which drastically reduces capability when encountering off-road conditions.


Whether on or off the road, the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee ensures your peace of mind with over 70 standard and available safety systems. New for 2019 is standard blind spot monitoring and rear cross path detection, in addition to the ParkView® rear backup camera. The Ford Explorer offers the Ford Safe & Smart™ Package, but it's only available in top trims. The only standard amenities in the Ford is a backup camera. No matter where you go, the Grand Cherokee keeps you connected. Standard technology includes smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, two systems that let you access your favorite applications on your center touchscreen. These are only available in top models of the Ford Explorer. The Grand Cherokee also comes standard with a seven-inch touchscreen, and the Explorer with just a five-inch display.
