The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Back in 2010, Jeep unveiled a new Grand Cherokee model to the world. Now, it’s nine years later and the country (and the world) is continuing its love affair with this iconic machine. It remains the more rugged option among crossover vehicles, which can just as easily feel at home in off-road environments as it can on-road. In this article, we’re exploring all the best features of the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
First, let’s get the lowdown on what’s new.
Truthfully, there aren’t any major changes for 2020. The Trackhawk now comes with optional 20-inch titanium-finish wheels and a black/grey leather interior. There are also a standard sunroof, bi-xenon headlamps and LED foglamps for the Limited models, the latest addition to the lineup which just joined in 2019. The Overland has optional dark sienna and black interiors.

Next, let’s go inside
When you’re buying a bigger car, it’s often because you need the space. The 2020 Grand Cherokee certainly competes with others in its category like the Chevy Blazer or Nissan Murano, offering 36.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats, and around 68 cubic feet if you fold the second-row seats. It’s a good choice for any family looking for a week-long road trip somewhere. The Uconnect infotainment system is held within an upgraded 8.4-inch touchscreen display, and performs well with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

All Grand Cherokees get the blond-spot and rear cross-traffic warning systems. The Active Safety Group package includes adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane-keep assist and parallel and perpendicular parking assist. It possesses a strong safety recommendation of 4 stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Finally, how does it go?
The standard engine comes with a 3.6L V6 engine and 8-speed automatic transmission, delivering a powertrain of 295hp with 260lb-ft of torque. Head up to the Limited trim, however, and you’ll get a 5.7L Hemi V8 engine as an optional upgrade, bringing it up to 360hp and 390lb-ft torque. You’ll get 14mpg city and 22mpg highway with the V8 option. The V6 offers better mileage at 18mpg city and 26mpg highway. Note that a 4WD option will reduce those ratings by about 1mpg.

Perhaps the best reason to consider the Grand Cherokee, besides its good looks, power, features and trim options, is simply to look at its strength and versatility. Whether you need it for towing, a family car, an off-road companion --- the Grand Cherokee fits the bill. Visit your dealership today to learn more.
