Consider Off-Roading Capabilities When Purchasing a New SUV

If you're looking for adventure, you need a durable SUV that can keep up with your wild side. While both the 2020 Jeep Cherokee and the 2020 Ford Explorer are reliable when it comes to pounding the pavement, their off-road capabilities differ. 
The 2020 Jeep Cherokee is Trail Rated®, which means it's passed the highest standards when it comes to traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation, and water fording. It offers high-traction FWD, but also has three available all-weather 4X4 systems. The 2020 Ford Explorer comes standard with RWD and offers just one available 4X4 system. So if navigating tough terrains is on your agenda, the versatility of the 2020 Jeep Cherokee's 4X4 options can provide functionality when you need it most.

Innovative, User-Friendly Technology in a New 2020 Jeep Cherokee SUV

Whether you're navigating a rocky path, a snow-covered hill, or crowded city streets, your new SUV should keep you comfortable and entertained while it's getting you where you need to go! 
The 2020 Jeep Cherokee and the 2020 Ford Explorer are both available with infotainment systems, but the Jeep's is more intuitive and versatile. The 2020 Jeep Cherokee is equipped with award-winning Uconnect®, a user-friendly system that allows you to start your vehicle remotely, get detailed maintenance summaries, search locations, call for roadside assistance, and more! 
Additional technology upgrades for the 2020 Jeep Cherokee include: 

  • Customizable 8.4" touchscreen 
  • Apple and Android integration 
  • 4G LTE W-Fi 
  • Jeep Skill for Amazon Alexa 
  • SiriusXM Guardian™ 
  • SiriusXM Traffic Plus 
  • Sirius XM Travel Link 
  • Integrated voice command 
  • HD radio 
  • Bluetooth 
  • Audio streaming 
The 2020 Ford Explorer's available technology platform is called FordPass™ Connect, and like Uconnect, it allows you to operate several vehicle features remotely. What FordPass lacks, however, is the diversity of entertainment features that Uconnect offers. 
All-encompassing technology has helped the Uconnect system win many accolades over the years, including Digital Trend's 'Infotainment of the Year'. Couple that with its many affordable trims and you've got an impressive inventory of SUVs to choose from at Jacky Jones CDJR!

Look for Affordable and Versatile Trims When Purchasing a New SUV

When you invest in a new SUV, you want a bevy of affordable options at your fingertips. The 2020 Jeep Cherokee offers nine distinct trims, while the 2020 Ford Explorer is only available in five trim levels. 
Besides more variety, the 2020 Jeep Cherokee is also a more budget-friendly SUV. Its base trim has a starting MSRP of $25,935 for a FWD version and a starting MSRP of $27,435 for a 4X4 version. The 2020 Ford Explorer's base trim carries a starting MSRP of $32,765. That's quite a difference in dollars, so if getting more value matters, take a closer look at the 2020 Jeep Cherokee.
