Keep reading as we dive deep into what these models offer from engine power to trim levels and more to find out which one is your ideal vehicle match!

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Power & Handling

The Grand Cherokee lineup is powered by four different engines. The base engine, powering most of the lineup, is a 3.6-liter V6 that produces 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. After that, offered for the Trailhawk, Overland, and Summit trim levels, is a 5.7-liter V8 that generates 360 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. The SRT trim level is powered by a 6.4-liter V8 that pumps out 470 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. The fourth engine, found powering just the Trackhawk trim, is a 6.2-liter supercharged 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque. Jeep pairs all engines with an 8-speed automatic transmission and while RWD comes standard with the V6 engine, 4WD is available and standard with all V8 engines.

2021 Ford Edge Power & Handling

There are just two engines powering the Ford Edge. The base engine, which powers almost the whole lineup, is a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that pumps out up to 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive but all-wheel drive is offered. The ST trim level, and the ST trim only, is powered by a 2.7-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that delivers 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. Ford matches this engine with a 7-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Features & Design

Standard features for the 2021 model year include blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, a 7-inch touchscreen, a 6-speaker sound system, keyless entry and ignition, Apple and Android smartphone integration, automatic dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, and 18-inch wheels. The upper trims come with additional features like heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, a power liftgate, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, xenon headlights, chrome exterior trim, a 19-speaker sound system, and additional driver aids. The Trailhawk trim comes outfitted with off-roading features like an off-road tuned air suspension, heavy-duty engine cooling, all-terrain drive modes, and all-terrain tires. The SRT and Trackhawk trims are ready to floor it with sport-tuned adaptive suspensions, Brembo brakes, high-performance braking systems, and more.

2021 Ford Edge Features & Design

Ford offers the Edge in five trim levels. The base model is outfitted with automatic dual-zone climate control, LED headlights, 18-inch wheels, a 12-inch touchscreen, a 6-speaker sound system, Apple and Android smartphone integration, and keyless entry and ignition.
