2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. 2014 Ford Edge

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has long been one of the most popular SUVs, and there’s a reason for that. The Jeep offers luxury styling, the latest technical features, and focuses heavily on driving dynamics. Of course if you’re looking for midsized utility vehicles, you’ll have plenty of options like the 2014 Ford Edge. So does Ford have an “Edge” on the Grand Cherokee? Here’s a look at how the two models compare.

Four-Wheel Drive

The Jeep models at our Moose Jaw-area car dealership are known for their 4WD systems. In fact, there are three different 4WD options on the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. If you look at the Ford Edge, you’ll only find one available AWD system that won’t really help you outside of bad weather driving. Jeep offers features like an electronic limited-slip differential, an adaptive air suspension, and a traction control system operated by the driver.

Vehicle Features

While pricing isn’t all that much different between the two models, the Jeep Grand Cherokee offers much more technology. Standard features include a five-inch touchscreen, USB connectivity, dual-zone air conditioning, keyless entry and ignition, and a five-inch touchscreen.

The Ford Edge has a smaller 4.2-inch display screen (not a touchscreen) and lacks the rest of those features at the base level. If you keep going past the base trim, you’ll find features not even available on the Ford Edge like a Blu-Ray entertainment system with HDMI inputs.

Safety Ratings

The Jeep Grand Cherokee has performed very well in safety tests. The NHTSA ranked it at an overall five stars for crash protection with five stars in the front and side crash tests. Ford’s Edge received only a four-star overall vehicle score. While the 2014 Edge also landed five stars for side protection, it only received a three-star score for front protection.
