2020 jeep grand cherokee for sale near surrey bcThe 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2020 Ford Explorer can both handle adverse conditions. But what if you want to truly go off-road, or you ride in snowy conditions? Which of these vehicles has the traction, drivetrain, and other features to keep you in firm control in rough situations with dirt, ice, sand, or rocks? 

The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and 2020 Ford Explorer ST are mid-level trims that offer better performance than basic models. Here is how they compare when you take them off the pavement. 

 
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk
Engine: 3.6L V6 or 5.7L V8
Drivetrain: 4x4 with Quadra-Drive II and Quadra-Lift Air Suspension
Traction Control: Selec-Terrain with snow, sand, mud, and rock settings
Tires: 265/60R18 BSW all-terrain

2020 Ford Explorer ST  
Engine: 3.0L EcoBoost
Drivetrain: Intelligent AWD
Traction Control: Terrain management system
Tires: P255/55R20 BSW all-season

 
The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk is the clear off-road winner in this comparison. Both of its engine options are more powerful than the Explorer's, and the level of control over traction settings is clearly superior. With the proprietary Selec-Terrain system, you can easily choose the setup that best fits conditions, no matter what they may be.  

With the 2020 Trailhawk, drivers also get limited slip differential and plenty of underbody protection. This trim offers skid plates to shield the bottom of the vehicle and the fuel tank.
