The next time you’re watching TV or scrolling through the internet, you’re bound to run into advertisements denoting whichever model as the best in its class. Of course, each model manufacturer will claim that its vehicles take the cake, but that’s rarely the case; there has to be a clear-cut winner in every segment, and in the Canadian mid-size SUV market, it all comes down to the Ford Edge and Jeep Grand Cherokee. Both of these are class leaders in their own right for the 2019 model year, but what you’re probably wondering is: Which one is better?
We’ve done some in-depth research on the 2019 Edge and Grand Cherokee models to help you answer that question – join us below as we take you on a detailed tour of what makes them so coveted. We think you’ll end up with a brand new SUV that you want to take home!

Of course, the Edge’s 12-speaker premium sound system and ample safety features – including a Class II Trailer Tow Package with Trailer Sway Control, Pre-Collision Assist, and many more – don't hurt either, making the Edge a model that is the total package no matter how you look at it.
