Overview

What's New

The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee sees a few minor changes for the new model year. Notably, the Limited and Trailhawk models get a standard sunroof, while a Premium Lighting Group is now available on Laredo, Limited, and Trailhawk trims. This package brings bi-xenon HID headlights, LED fog lights, and automatic high beams.

Additionally, the formerly available turbodiesel V6 engine is no longer offered. Still, whether it’s off-roading, beating sports cars in a drag race, or lavishly traversing the town, the Jeep Grand Cherokee can do what few can.

Choosing Your Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jeep offers the Grand Cherokee in seven trims: Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, Summit, SRT, and Trackhawk. The Laredo is available in Laredo E, Upland, and Altitude subtrims, while the Limited is available in a Limited X and the Overland is available with a High Altitude subtrim.

Pricing starts at $33,540 including destination for the Laredo and climbs all the way up to $88,395 for the Trackhawk.

Engine Choices

The four engines available on the Jeep Grand Cherokee range from the standard V6 to the fire-breathing supercharged V8 that’s borrowed from the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and the Challenger SRT Hellcat.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
3.6L V6295 hp260 lb-ft21 mpg
5.7L V8360 hp390 lb-ft17 mpg
6.4L V8475 hp470 lb-ft15 mpg
6.2L Supercharged V8707 hp645 lb-ft13 mpg

The Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, and Summit get the 3.6-liter V6 as standard. The 5.7-liter V8 is available on four-wheel-drive Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, and Summit models for $3,295 ($3,795 on the Summit). The SRT is exclusively available with the 6.4-liter V8, while the same goes for the Trackhawk and the 6.2-liter V8.

Trailhawk, SRT, and Trackhawk trims are four-wheel drive only, while it's available on all other trims for somewhere between $2,000 and $3,000, depending on the trim. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard on every Grand Cherokee. Towing capacity for the V6 is rated at up to 6,200 pounds and up to 7,200 pounds for all of the V8 engines.

Being able to get into a mid-size SUV with the same straight-line performance as a sports car is a novelty that never wears off. But 707 horsepower is overkill for everyday use. Instead, the 5.7-liter V8 has more than enough grunt for consumers, while the base 3.6-liter V6 hardly feels underpowered in regular situations.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Grand Cherokees can seat up to five. Thanks to the same platform as the Dodge Durango, it never feels tight on the inside. Space in the back is especially generous, as the rear seats can recline up to 12 degrees for extra comfort. With roughly 38 inches of rear leg room, passengers are treated to one of the more spacious mid-size SUVs.

Behind the second row, the Grand Cherokee has 36.3 cubic feet of cargo space. With the second row out of the picture, it offers 68.3 cubic feet of total cargo space.

Safety Features

Every Jeep Grand Cherokee comes with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear parking sensors. That’s not as good as some of what the Grand Cherokee’s competitors are offering as standard, but it’s certainly not terrible.

The Summit, SRT, and Trackhawk add adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams to the list of standard equipment.

These features plus a park assist system and rain-sensing windshield wipers are available on the Limited, Trailhawk, and Overland trims through the ProTech II Package ($1,495).

The Grand Cherokee has a four-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA, or a perfect five-star rating when equipped with 4WD.

Connectivity

A 7-inch touchscreen running Jeep’s Uconnect 4 infotainment system is standard on the base trim. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and two USB ports are included with the system. All other trims get an 8.4-inch touchscreen with navigation, HD radio, wi-fi hot spot capability, and satellite radio.

Jeep Grand Cherokee

Laredo - From $33,540

The Grand Cherokee Laredo comes with 17-inch wheels, automatic headlights, fog lights, and heated exterior mirrors. On the inside, the trim has cloth upholstery, a six-speaker audio system, dual-zone climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a tilt-and-telescoping steering column.

The Laredo E subtrim ($35,390) adds roof rails, an eight-way power driver's seat with lumbar adjustment, and a 60/40-split rear seat. However, the main draw of the Laredo E is that it has a number of available packages.

Notably, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, remote start, and a power liftgate are available through the Security and Convenience Group ($2,000). The aforementioned Premium Lighting Group costs $695. The 8.4-inch touchscreen with navigation is a $1,395 standalone option, as is a sunroof for $1,295.

The Upland subtrim ($37,490) builds on the Laredo E but adds 20-inch black wheels, a black grille, black roof rails, and other black exterior accents, trim, and badging. The contents of the Security and Convenience Group are also standard.

The Altitude subtrim ($39,485) takes things a step further with black suede seats, a unique grille, and the 8.4-inch touchscreen with navigation. A nine-speaker Alpine audio system is a $795 option.

Limited - From $41,350

The Limited trim comes standard with leather upholstery, a sunroof, the 8.4-inch touchscreen, an eight-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a heated steering wheel, a universal garage door opener, 18-inch wheels, and a power liftgate.

Buyers can equip their Limited with a dual-pane sunroof, ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, and the nine-speaker Alpine audio system through the $2,895 Luxury Group II.

The Limited X subtrim ($46,250) adds 20-inch granite crystal aluminum wheels, a granite crystal and black grille, black roof rails, a sport hood, granite crystal exterior accents, and the contents of the Premium Lighting Group.

Trailhawk - From $46,450

The Trailhawk trim includes ventilated front seats, rear heated seats, leather and suede upholstery with red stitching, slush mats, shift paddles on the steering wheel, and the Alpine audio system.

Standard off-road features on the Trailhawk include 18-inch off-road wheels, all-terrain tires, heavy-duty skid plates, red tow hooks, an air suspension, and an improved breakover angle of 25.7 degrees.

Add perforated leather upholstery, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a dual-pane sunroof, and a power tilt-and-telescoping steering column through the Trailhawk Luxury Group ($2,395).

Overland - From $47,790

The Overland comes with Nappa leather-trimmed seats with edge welting, the dual-pane sunroof, the air suspension, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and 20-inch wheels. The contents of the Premium Lighting Group are also standard. A 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system is a $1,195 option.

The High Altitude subtrim ($50,385) adds the same granite crystal wheels, grille, and accents as the Limited X does to the Limited.

Summit - From $53,490

On the Grand Cherokee Summit, illuminated sill plates and 20-inch polished aluminum wheels are standard. The interior is equipped with the additional active safety features and the 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.

Add some bling to the Summit with the Platinum Series Group ($995), which brings 20-inch platinum wheels, front and rear fascia, grille, roof rails, and exterior badging.

SRT - From $69,890

The SRT is the first high-performance trim, and it's powered by the 6.4-liter V8. Standard feature include high performance brakes, the sport hood, an active damping suspension, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, carbon fiber interior accents, and 20-inch satin carbon wheels.

Add Laguna leather seats, matte carbon spears on the instrument panel and doors, and leather-wrapped lower panels through the Signature Leather-Wrapped Interior Package ($5,295). The dual-pane sunroof is a $2,095 option.

Trackhawk - From $88,395

Not only is the Trackhawk the most expensive Grand Cherokee, it’s also the most powerful, featuring the 707-hp 6.2-liter supercharged V8. Other unique parts on the Trackhawk include yellow Brembo front brakes, 20-inch black satin wheels, and a quad exhaust system.

CarsDirect Tip

We think the Limited is the sweet spot in the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup. Besides having a robust list of standard features, it can be fitted with either luxurious or off-roading features, letting you choose what kind of adventure you want to go on.

An enduring model. Ten years is a long time to stay with one model, but that’s exactly what Jeep has done with its fourth-generation Grand Cherokee. This mid-size SUV has managed to stay popular thanks to several refreshes along the way, including new variants such as the Trailhawk and Trackhawk.

That said, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee shows its age inside as the cabin design hasn’t changed much through the years. What the interior has going for it is leather, wood, and metal on upper trim models, which enables the Grand Cherokee to punch well above its mainstream status.

Multiple powertrain choices. Competing models typically offer one or two powertrain choices, but the Jeep Grand Cherokee has four. The standard V6 engine with 295 horsepower is adequate for most needs and also boasts a 6,200-pound towing capacity, easily besting the Nissan Murano and Chevrolet Blazer.

Where the fun begins is with this model’s trio of V8 engines. The 5.7-liter produces 360 hp and 390 pound-feet of torque, which immediately puts it ahead of the competition.

But Jeep doesn’t stop there, as it imbues its SRT model with a road-gripping 6.4-liter V8 engine generating 475 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. Jeep finishes things off with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, which throws down 707 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque.

This engine puts the Jeep in heady performance company, battling the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 63, BMW X5 M, and Range Rover SVR – but at a lower cost.


Jeep Grand Cherokee

Subpar fuel economy. Jeep no longer offers a diesel option and that’s a shame. It supplied decent fuel economy, enabling the Jeep to return a respectable 24 miles per gallon combined, according to the EPA. This is three mpg higher than the standard gas engine.

The V8 engines are thirsty and earn 17, 15, and 13 mpg, respectively. A loophole in the EPA’s gas guzzler tax ruling allows the Grand Cherokee to escape this penalty, something the slightly more efficient Dodge Hellcats do not.

Robust off-road capabilities. No other mainstream mid-size SUV matches the Grand Cherokee in off-road prowess. Even the standard four-wheel-drive model has trail-ready tech and ample approach, breakover, and departure chops.

The Trailhawk simply raises the Grand Cherokee’s off-road credibility further. Here, Jeep adds grippier tires, an off-road suspension system, and an all-wheel-drive system designed to send nearly 100% of its power to the rear wheels and an electronic limited-slip differential.

Jeep offers four 4WD systems, with all but the base arrangement offering low-range gearing. Transfer cases, hill descent control, and terrain management aid the Grand Cherokee in its off-road pursuits.

Final thoughts. Ten years is a long time for any model, but the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee manages to stay relevant even as competitors roll out new or updated models. Not one has a V8 engine, nor can they match the Grand Cherokee in pulling power.

We think it's ridiculous that a fully loaded Trackhawk tops $100,000. But if you’re shopping this model, you’re not likely all that concerned. On the other hand, a well-equipped Overland will set you back about half as much.
