2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Power & Handling
The Grand Cherokee starts off its wonderful engine lineup with a 3.6-liter V6 that rips out 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine is available on the base Laredo. For the Limited and above, you can either go with the V6 or opt for the 5.7-liter V8 that pumps out 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. The SRT is high powered and comes with its own terrific engine in the form of a 6.4-liter V8 with 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the Trackhawk rounds out the engine lineup with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that produces a whopping 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque. Most trims come with either rear-wheel drive or four-wheel-drive. The Trialhawk comes with four-wheel drive as standard, while the SRT and Trackhawk get specialized four-wheel-drive system. When fully equipped, the Grand Cherokee can haul up to 7,200 pounds.
2020 Ford Edge Power & Handling
Unlike the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the 2020 Ford Edge comes with only two engine options. Most trims get a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 250 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque that pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive comes standard, but you can opt for all-wheel drive if you choose. The engine gets the job done, but the power is not spectacular. If you want more horses, the ST offers a turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 producing 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque, which comes standard with the eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive. Both these engines are fine, but they lack the power of the Grand Cherokee’s powertrains. Also, the Edge isn’t quite as fuel-efficient as the Grand Cherokee as the fuel capacity, and the fuel range isn’t quite as high.

2020 Ford Edge Features & Design
