Introduced in 1992, the Grand Cherokee still reigns supreme as one of the original midsize SUVs. It remains one of the most family-friendly SUVs in its segment with its go-anywhere do-anything capability. For the 2020 model year, the Grand Cherokee doesn’t receive any major upgrades as its the last model before the all-new and revamped generation debuts in time for 2021. Let’s break down what modest upgrades are available on the 2020 Grand Cherokee.
The 2020 Grand Cherokee can be powered by one of four different engine options. Standard under the hood of the Grand Cherokee is the classic 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine capable of generating 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. A 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine is available as an upgrade for Grand Cherokee vehicles that are equipped with four-wheel-drive. It generates 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. Climbing up the tiers we have the 2020 Grand Cherokee SRT that’s powered by a massive 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine that’s rated at 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. The highest-tier trim is the Trackhawk trim that’s powered by a supercharged 6.5-liter Hellcat V8 engine. This performance-oriented Jeep Grand Cherokee makes a whopping 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque.
Unlike some of the other modern SUVs that offer seating for either six or seven passengers, the Grand Cherokee sticks to a traditional two-row, five-seat layout. Cloth and leather upholstery are available, along with different options when it comes to multimedia systems. The 2020 Grand Cherokee has luxury options such as high-quality leather interior accents, a premium audio system, a panoramic roof, and heated and ventilated seats available on the higher-tier trims. Cargo space is also ample with 36.3 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats, or an even bigger 68.3 cubic feet of cargo space when the seats are folded flat.
The 2020 Grand Cherokee features a standard Uconnect infotainment system, complete with Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto capabilities as well as Bluetooth voice command. The base-tier Grand Cherokee features a 7-inch Uconnect touchscreen display, but the rest of the lineup features an 8.4-inch touchscreen. The Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland and Summit trims also feature off-road pages, while the SRT and Trackhawk trims offer additional performance readouts. Every Grand Cherokee comes equipped with Trailer-Sway Control, Blind Spot Monitoring, Hill-Start Assist, and rear parking sensors. Adaptive cruise control is optional on the high-tier trims only, as is Forward Collision Warning and Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist.
