In this car comparison, our team at Dallas Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram will give you a closer look at these two vehicles. See how they measure up across crucial categories and decide which one will serve you best.
How much space do you have to work with inside the 2021 Grand Cherokee and the Edge? Both offer seating for up to five passengers across two rows. Second-row headroom and legroom are generous enough to allow adults to relax and stretch out for the ride ahead.
Up front in both SUVs, there is roughly 40 inches of headroom—even the tallest drivers and their passengers can slide in quite easily. More than 40 inches of legroom in the front, too, only sweetens the deal when it comes to space. You’ll find it easy to relax, especially with available heated and cooled front seats.
Look to the exterior dimensions and you will see the Grand Cherokee has a longer wheelbase at 114.8 inches than that of the Edge, at 112.2 inches. This contributes to a smooth ride over the pavement.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Ford Edge promise attractive interiors, especially as you move toward the higher trim levels. From real leather upholstery to wood accents, you can deck out your SUV in the most glamorous way. Laguna leather—available on the Grand Cherokee—even offers diamond-pattern stitching.
Choose the soundtrack to your adventure, with either the Jeep Uconnect® multimedia system or its Ford counterpart. Your music will sound better than ever on a premium sound system! The B&O™ Audio System in the Edge offers 12 speakers, while the Grand Cherokee’s Harman Kardon® Premium Sound System has even more—19 speakers and a 10-inch subwoofer.
Available moonroofs let the sunlight shine in on your ride and brighten your day! If you’re driving during the night, you can pull over on the side of the road, recline your seat, and stare skyward at the stars.
If you spend lots of time at your perch in the driver’s seat, fuel economy is important. Luckily, the 2021 Grand Cherokee and the Edge value efficiency on a level basis.
If you choose the Pentastar® V6 engine in the Jeep or the EcoBoost® V6 engine in the Ford, you’ll see up to an EPA-estimated 19 city/26 highway MPG.
If the prospect of performance raises hairs on the back of your neck, the Jeep Grand Cherokee might be for you. It offers two engines tuned for the track: a 6.4L V8 with 475 horsepower in the SRT trim and a 6.2L supercharged V8 with 707 horsepower in the Trackhawk trim.
While the Ford Edge sports powerful engine options, there’s no V8 engine option. The EcoBoost® V6, with 335 horsepower, is the top performer in the Edge.
The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2021 Ford Edge are two powerhouse performers. While Arlington, Dallas, and Garland, TX, drivers will appreciate both, the Grand Cherokee rises above the Ford Edge by a few central metrics.
