There are many great vehicles on the market today, giving potential buyer's seemingly endless options to choose from. With all these different choices, it is easy for buyers to feel overwhelmed in their hunt for the perfect vehicle. The easiest way is to compare vehicles side-by-side and see exactly what each one has. For an affordable SUV, two great options are the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2014 Ford Edge. So which one is right for you?
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has many available options to fit an array of different lifestyles. There are endless features and possibilities with this vehicle, allowing the owner to essentially build the vehicle that he/she needs. Whether you are looking for an off-road vehicle that can take you on adventures or a reliable way to travel with your family, this vehicle would be a good choice. The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers a variety of engine sizes including:
3.0L EcoDiesel V6
3.6L Pentastar V6
If it is fuel economy with adequate power that you need, the V6 engines are more than acceptable. They have a highway range of 25-30 MPG and up to 290 horsepower, saving you money with great fuel economy and giving you the power you need for a reliable vehicle. If it is a heavy-duty engine filled with the power to take you off the beaten path, the V8 engine gives you just that and the fuel economy to match the performance. With 360 horsepower, this engine will take you to the top of any rugged hillside and save you money with an estimated 22 MPG on highways. So, whether you are looking for a vehicle to tackle family outings or to open doors to adventure, the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has everything you are looking for.
In addition to power and fuel efficiency, the Jeep Grand Cherokee also has many available features that make is a very safe and enjoyable vehicle to own. Some safety features include:
Front-Passenger and Side Curtain Airbags
Blind Spot Monitoring
Back Up Camera
With these features, you can make sure that you and your family are not only in a reliable vehicle, but one that is equipped with everything you need to stay safe while traveling. Blind Spot Monitoring and Accident Avoidance alert the driver to dangers that could cause an accident, and the airbags and Emergency Assist help the driver to avoid serious injury and call for help in the event that an accident occurs. There are also several features to entertain the driver and passengers, such as Blu-Ray players and iPod integration.
2014 Ford Edge
The new Ford Edge is also a good vehicle, with a lot of the same features that the Jeep boasts, though there are some differences. The Ford Edge does have a lot of the same features, such as Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear View Camera. However, the Ford Edge does not offer the same engine options or entertainment features of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Ford Edge has an estimated highway range of 26-30 MPG, but there is only a V6 option for engines, meaning you do not get the power the Jeep offers. This can be a problem if you want to off-road heavily, though the Edge is still adequate in getting from one destination to the next for the average family. The Ford Edge offers a six-speed transmission, whereas the Jeep Grand Cherokee offers an eight-speed transmission, though it does have the accident avoidance features.
While both of these vehicles are dependable and safe, the Jeep offers more options as far as power, safety, and entertainment.
