2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a reputation for combining comfort with true all-terrain prowess. The Jeep image alone is a draw, but the Grand Cherokee manages to back up the off-road bravado — especially in Trailhawk form.

If you want something for everyday commuting, the standard 293-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine is perfectly up to the task. If you want more power, the Grand Cherokee offers an optional 360-hp, 5.7-liter V-8.

For anyone who wants muscle-car performance in an SUV, there are 475-hp SRT and 707-hp Trackhawk models available. They deliver not just loads of driving thrills, but also a hefty price premium over the rest of the lineup. Grand Cherokee competitors include the Toyota 4Runner, Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe.

What’s New on the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

Jeep’s Active Safety Group package is now available on the Laredo trim. It includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

What Features in the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Are Most Important?

Jeep has wisely expanded the availability of advanced safety features, some of which had only been available on higher trim levels.  The optional Trailer Tow Group IV package elevates the Grand Cherokee’s trailering capabilities, while the available Selec-Terrain traction-management system gives an extra degree of control when traveling in messy conditions. Standard tech features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. 2020 Ford Edge: How Do They Compare?

The 2020 Ford Edge doesn’t have the performance and off-road credentials of the Grand Cherokee. The new Edge is, however, a comfortable and capable two-row SUV, and it comes with an available multimedia system that’s vastly better than some of Ford’s previous efforts. Jeep’s Uconnect multimedia system, however, remains the usability benchmark. The Grand Cherokee has a wider range of trims than the Edge and can be configured for specific needs, whether you’re heading off-road or to the track.

Should I Buy the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

Jeep’s rugged Grand Cherokee has been a favorite for years, appreciated for its off- and on-road capability, attractive styling and practicality. All in all, the Grand Cherokee can be different things to different shoppers thanks to a breadth of powertrains and trims.

Make the Two Hands on Wheel feature stand a lone.

I HATE is the warning 'Place Two Hands On Wheel' as it goes off even when I have both hands on the wheel - No matter where I place my hands on the wheel it goes off. Since it is connected to the Lane Departure feature in order to not have to hear a constant warning alarm for Two Hands on Wheel I have to turn off the Lane Departure feature (which I love).


My Jeep saved me!

Bought my first Jeep Grand Cherokee in January of 2022. I was in a wreck where another vehicle hit me and threw me off the road into a ditch. I went airborne and came down hard. It was a miracle I did not flip. All of my driver-side airbags deployed (front and back) and I walked away with minor injuries. This vehicle kept me safe and I will have another one to replace the totaled Jeep from my wreck.


Buyer Beware

This vehicle has an issue known with "lunging" when the car is shifted into drive. Brake on to shift, take your foot off and it lunges forward. Had a "Totaled" accident with this vehicle as a rental. Lunged forward, took us by surprise, over a stone wall and stopped by a tree. Windshield shattered, Front end destroyed, The airbag did not inflate. Another known issue. Buyer beware, Do your research.
