2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2020 Grand Cherokee Photos
In automotive terms, nine years is a lifetime. Yet that’s how old the current Jeep Grand Cherokee is, having gone on sale in the summer of 2010 as a 2011 model. Yet somehow, despite its age, Jeep’s flagship midsize SUV manages to stay desirable in the face of its much more car-like competition. Unlike most of its crossover competitors, which attract customers in droves who will never go off road but may be looking for something a little sporty and a lot stylish, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee is designed to appeal to buyers who are looking for a more rugged option. Something that could potentially take them well off the beaten path and far away from civilization, even if they never test it further than a few rutted dirt roads or, even more likely, pothole-strewn highways. Fortunately, for all the Grand Cherokee’s Trail Rated capabilities off road, it still manages to offer luxurious accommodations inside, particularly in its higher-end trim levels, and a firm but generally comfortable ride. But buyers should indeed be aware that those increased off-road abilities come with some interior space deficiencies and fuel economy penalties on the road, which is where they’ll be driving the Grand Cherokee almost all the time. What's new for 2020? Nothing major changes for 2020. The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk gets a new yellow badge and optional 20-inch wheels with a titanium finish and a black and grey leather interior package. The Trackhawk and Limited models gain a standard sunroof, bi-xenon headlamps and LED fog lamps. Overland models get an available dark sienna and black interior while Summit models offer a Light Frost and brown interior finish. The Limited X, pictured above, returns for 2020 after its introduction last year. What are the interior and in-car technology like? The Grand Cherokee’s interior is a bit of a mixed bag. In top-level trims like the Summit, it’s swathed in luxurious leather and wood trim, and in SRT and Trackhawk guise, its heavily bolstered seats and track-focused technology package feel like they were borrowed from high-performance Challenger models (because they were). But Grand Cherokee Laredo models at the lower end of the spectrum can feel plasticky and bare – a natural result when the model line is stretched across 12 separate trim levels. Most Grand Cherokees bought by consumers will fall into the middle of the range. A 7-inch screen featuring Jeep/Chrysler’s excellent Uconnect infotainment system is upgraded to 8.4 inches around the point the vehicle crosses the $40,000 price threshold. This system also includes, and performs well with, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. How big is it? Size-wise, Jeep’s range-topping SUV is a bit of an odd duck. In terms of interior roominess, it lines up against style-first crossovers like the Chevy Blazer and Nissan Murano. In terms of functionality and likely cross-shoppers, the Toyota 4Runner is a better comparison, and the Grand Cherokee compares favorably with that SUV in headroom, shoulder room and legroom, but its cargo space falls considerably behind …
