2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Power & Handling

The Grand Cherokee's powertrain lineup is simply mind-blowing. All four engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and while RWD is standard, 4WD is available and comes standard with 3 out of the 4 engines. The base engine is a 3.6-liter V6 that pumps out 295 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Drivers of the Trailhawk, Overland and Summit models can choose the available 5.7-liter V8 engine that creates 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. Under the hood of the SRT lies a 6.4-lliter V8 delivering 470 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. The final engine, powering only the Trackhawk trim, is a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that cranks out 707 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque.

2021 Ford Edge Power & Handling

There are just two engines powering the Ford Edge lineup. The base engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that delivers 250 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and while front-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive is available. The second engine, only powering the ST trim level, is a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that delivers 335 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. This engine is matched to a 7-speed automatic transmission and comes with standard all-wheel drive.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Features & Design

The Grand Cherokee is offered in seven trim levels, each one catering to a different type of driver in the market for a new SUV. Many of the trims, like the Laredo, Limited, Overland and Summit are packed to the brim with comfort, convenience, and luxury features like smartphone integration, premium sound systems, keyless entry and ignition, a Wi-Fi hotspot, a power liftgate, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and a suite of driver aids. The Trailhawk trim is ready for off-roading with an off-roading tuned air suspension, skid plates, all-terrain drive modes, and an electronically controlled limited-slip differential. The final two trims in the Grand Cherokee Lineup, the SRT and Trackhawk, are outfitted for performance driving with sport-tuned adaptive suspensions, high-performance braking systems, and so much more.

2021 Ford Edge Features & Design

The 2021 Ford Edge is offered in five trim levels. The base SE trim is outfitted with LED headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, smartphone integration, a 6-speaker sound system, keyless entry and ignition, and Ford Co-Pilot360. The SEL doesn't add many features, instead offers a few packages that up the price of the SUV. The Titanium trim adds more luxury features like rain-sensing wipers, a hands-free liftgate, leather upholstery and front parking sensors. The ST-Line and ST trim are the Edge's sportier models with black exterior trim, red accent interior stitching. The ST trim adds more performance-geared driving features like a sport-tuned suspension, front sport seats, and a 12-speaker premium sound system.


The Ford Edge does have a lot to offer but the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee simply blows it out of the water with its impressive powertrain lineup and list of trim levels that meets the needs of every driver.
