2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review
When it comes to full-size SUVs, there are a specific few that are iconic representatives of the sector. Among these, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a name that’s always mentioned. Whether you’re looking for a family hauler or you want to blaze trails in the forests and fields around Mansfield, Attleboro, and Norton, this is an SUV that can tackle the job.
The latest model year is upon us, and many fans of the manufacturer are eager to see what this refined and adventurous crossover has to offer. Let’s check out a review of the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee, including its power and performance, off-roading capabilities, and features, and learn where you can go to get behind the wheel today.
Overview of the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee doesn’t see a lot of new upgrades this year. It does lose last year’s diesel engine option, but even with that loss it still offers great performance, a solid engine lineup, best-in-class off-roading, and towing capacity that can go up against many other vehicles in the class. It also features a wide range of technology, convenience, and comfort features.
The new Grand Cherokee is available in your choice of a whopping seven trim levels. The base level is the Laredo, which is followed by the Limited as a midrange. The Trailhawk is your off-road-oriented trim, while the Overland and Summit are more luxury-oriented trims. The SRT adds some performance options, and the Trackhawk delivers power like no other SUV on the market.
Grand Cherokee Performance
The base Laredo trim comes with a 3.6-liter V6 engine. It gives you 295 horsepower and generates 260 lb-ft of torque. You can opt at higher trim levels to upgrade to a 5.7-liter V8 that increases your horsepower to 360 and delivers 390 lb-ft of torque. The SRT 6.4-liter V8 has 475 horsepower backed up by 470 lb-ft of torque. The Trackhawk offers an astounding 6.2-liter V8 engine with 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque. It doesn’t get better than that for a full-size crossover.
Most models are rear-wheel drive, and 4-wheel drive is available as an option. If you opt for the Trailhawk, you get 4-wheel drive as standard, and at the SRT and Trackhawk level, you get a special all-wheel drive setup. The Cherokee can also tow and haul, with even the V6 engine rated at 6,200 pounds. The V8 engines, when properly equipped, are able to handle up to 7,200 pounds of maximum towing.
Speaking of performance, the new Grand Cherokee, like most Jeeps, offers a Trailhawk trim level that’s custom-built for trailblazing adventures. At this trim level, you’ll get the Jeep special Quadra-Drive II traction control, Quadra-Trac II low-range gearing, and Quadra-Lift Suspension, plus skid plates, off-road tires, and special exterior styling—not to mention an upgraded cabin instrument display.
