Jeep GC 3.6 or Ford Explorer 3.5?
 
At the moment I drive a GC 2011 3.6 Laredo X 70 ann. and I am dissapointed from the weak and sleepy engine performance, the weird humm I have on 60 mph, the poor audio quality and I can dig few more. The 2012 Ford explorer 3.5 is a nice looking car ( not falling behind the GC looks ) and the limited version must have a superb Sony audio system in it.
I do not know what is the driving quality though, the engine power it has and one more important issue MPG comparison between the two!!! .
I will appreciate your opinions to share based on experience.

I couldnt buy an Exploder on looks alone. I have a 3.6 and it is more than adequate

Explorer has a very stylish interior which I believe way much better than Jeep Grand Cherokee!

GC interior seems to be way back with the technology like way back in 2005 or 2008.

If you are buying the Explorer why don't you buy the sport package which looks way better than the normal explorer 3.6

The new Explorer is built on the Taurus platform so it's car based. Instant turn off for me.

I have looked at the Explorer just to compare. The exterior doesn't look bad but not as good as the JGC. The interior of the Explorer looked cheap to me its covered in cheap looking sheets of plastic. If you do go with the Explorer I would only consider the Limited model with the V-6. Its hard to believe that Ford offers a 4 cycliner on this then wants to charge an extra thousand dollars for it. I will say that in my opinion the Explorer does look way better than the ugly GM triplets that are also in that class.
