    The Ford Explorer vs. The GMC Acadia

    • Large SUVs need powerful engines so that they don't feel sluggish and can help you with your towing needs. Well, the new Ford Explorer has a 300-horsepower engine standard and a 400-horsepower engine available, while the GMC Acadia has a 193-horsepower standard and tops out at 310 horsepower. These engines help the Ford Explorer tow up to 5,600 pounds while the GMC Acadia tops out at 4,000 pounds.
    • The Ford Explorer and GMC Acadia both seat up to seven passengers, but the Ford Explorer provides more space for its occupants. It has 153 cubic feet of passenger volume, compared to 144 cubic feet in the GMC SUV, and the Ford Explorer has large advantages in legroom for the first and third rows as well as shoulder room in each row. Plus, the Ford Explorer has more cargo space and a greater max cargo capacity than the new GMC Acadia.
  • Mid-size SUVs are popular among families, which is why safety is especially important. Well, every new Ford Explorer near Shawnee, OK comes standard with advanced driver-assist technologies, from its Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert to Automatic Emergency Braking, which you won't get standard in the GMC Acadia.
  • When looking at features, the Ford Explorer has several, like Amazon Alexa compatibility and a parallel parking assistant, not offered in the GMC Acadia. Plus, every trim level of the Ford Explorer is available with all-wheel drive, which isn't an option on the base GMC Acadia.
  • The Ford Explorer vs. The Jeep Grand Cherokee

    • Both of these SUVs have a wide range of available engines, but if you want a hybrid SUV, only the Ford Explorer offers a hybrid engine. And, when you look at the engines that come standard in these, the Ford Explorer has more horsepower, torque, and a greater towing capacity than the standard engine of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee.

  • These cars are both available in two or four-wheel drive, but the Ford Explorer doesn't limit your engine choices. You'll have your choice between the 2.3-liter I4 and the 3.5-liter V6 with two or four-wheel drive. The two-wheel drive models of the Jeep Grand Cherokee are only available with their standard engine. The two-wheel drive Ford Explorers will have more torque than the Jeep Grand Cherokee two-wheel drive offerings.
  • Prague car-shoppers surely know of the Jeep Grand Cherokee's reputation as an off-road capable vehicle, but the Ford Explorer didn't earn its name by sticking to paved roads. Features like the Terrain Management System™ and Hill Descent Control™ of the Ford Explorer let you prep your car for tricky terrains. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has comparable features in only some of its trims.
