Everyone knows that it can be a stressful process, figuring out what vehicle they intend on buying next. We're here to tell you that at Flagler CDJR, we want to make everything as easy as possible. That's why we are focused on two of the top SUVs on the market today. They include the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L and the 2021 Ford Explorer. The Grand Cherokee L starts everything off with an excellent safety suite, a super luxurious interior, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a great lineup of available engines, and true four-wheel drive.The Explorer has a fairly tight third-row, new trim levels, a few paint changes, and some standard features lost on the Limited trim. Keep reading to see which SUV to buy!

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L Power & Handling

The first part of the Grand Cherokee L that we want to go over with you is the power and capability that is available. There are two engines you can choose from. The base engine is a 3.6-liter V6, outputting around 290 horsepower and 257 pound-feet of torque. The available engine is a 5.7-liter V8, which can create around 357 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard, though you will also find four-wheel drive if you are looking to really up your off-roading game. In fact, there are three types of 4WD systems that you can choose from with the Grand Cherokee L.

2021 Ford Explorer Power & Handling

The Explorer has a decent engine lineup. The base engine is a turbocharged 2.3-liter inline-4, which outputs 300 hp and 310 pound-feet of torque. Another option is a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6, which offers you 365 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. We still don't recommend taking this vehicle off-roading, unlike the Grand Cherokee L which works overtime to give you that kind of capability.
