Which should you buy, a 2019 or 2020? It depends on the trim level, but if you’re shopping for a Laredo, find a 2020 version to get access to active safety features that were unavailable on the 2019.

Jeep’s largest SUV was last redesigned for model-year 2014 and for 2020, not much has changed for the Grand Cherokee. The biggest change is that Jeep’s Active Safety Group suite of advanced safety features is now available on the base Laredo trim. It includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and automatic high beams.

Again for 2020, the following trims are available: Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland and Summit, as well as the high-performance SRT and Trackhawk models. 

Other additions for 2020 include equipment shuffling and cosmetic enhancements. Newly standard on Grand Cherokee Limited and Trailhawk trims is a single-pane moonroof. Laredo, Limited and Trailhawk trims also get a newly available headlight package that includes bi-xenon high-intensity-discharge headlamps, signature daytime running lights, LED foglamps and auto high-beam headlamps. 

Overland trims now offer a Dark Sienna and black interior palette while Summit trims offer a Light Frost and brown interior option. Also for 2020, Trackhawk models get available 20-inch titanium-aluminum wheels and an optional Signature Leather-Wrapped Interior Package in black and Ski Gray. 

Model-year 2020 prices compared with 2019’s model are similar. The base Laredo model starts at $45 less for 2020, but other models see more of a jump, like the Limited at $510. See how each trim’s price compares

The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee came in last place in’s Mid-Size SUV Challenge due to disappointments in comfort, fuel economy and value. The minor changes to the model for 2020 don’t make big strides to address these issues.
