Each SUV is calibrated to different strengths and ride styles. So, when it comes to a comparison between the 2016 Ford Edge vs 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee, each driver must choose which vehicle pulls ahead and offers the best bang for the buck. Both of these vehicles are available on the Akins lot, and both offer distinct advantages.
