When shopping for an SUV like the new Ford Explorer, one major thing worth checking out is the kind of auto tech you can expect in the cabin. At Waconia Ford, we strive to make car buying easy and will help you compare tech across some of the leading SUVs.
Across the variety of SUVs on the market, three of the leading models are the Ford Explorer, the Jeep® Grand Cherokee, and the Chevy Traverse.
Tech in The New Ford Explorer, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Chevy Traverse
Let’s start with the Chevy Traverse, which starts strong with a 7.0-inch infotainment system that has Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility. There are also six different USB ports in the cabin, making phone charging a breeze. That said, this SUV falls a little short when it comes to safety tech, as you’ll have to upgrade to get features like automatic emergency braking.
Next up is the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Jeep SUV also does a considerable job at the start with its 7.0-inch infotainment system that is also compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You will find fewer USB ports, which can be a drawback for some drivers. But, if you’re looking for safety features, you can get blind-spot monitors as standard, although will still have to pay extra for automatic emergency braking.
Last up is the Ford Explorer. This Ford SUV gets a far more substantial 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen that gets the latest in infotainment technology. Although, what makes the Ford Explorer a true standout is the fact that all models get blind-spot monitors, cross-traffic alerts, hill start assist, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
