Despite numerous reports about the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee redesign, it looks like we won’t see any significant change for the next year. The famous SUV will carry on for at least another year until we see a complete overhaul. Therefore, the next year shouldn’t bring any notable novelty. The current generation rides for about eight years. However, this model is still pretty competitive in many aspects.
First of all, there is an amazing engine lineup, which includes monstrous V8 versions as well. Also, the interior quality is amazing, still one of the finest in the class. All in all, the upcoming model will continue to compete successfully in the crowded segment of mid-size SUVs. Expect to see it sometime late in the year.
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Specs
When it comes to the base design characteristics, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee is largely the same as the model that came in 2011. Of course, there were some updates meanwhile, but the overall design is pretty familiar. While some reports were suggesting a redesign, we are pretty sure it won’t happen so soon, as the company prepares a complete overhaul for this occasion, which will include some brand-new design solution that will completely change the character of the iconic nameplate.
In any case, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee will carry on in the same characteristics, which is mostly good, though there are some drawbacks. The biggest complaint goes to the firm ride quality, even if you opt for the air suspension. In terms of the styling, things will definitely remain untouched, though we won’t exclude the possibility to some minor tweaks, like new color options, etc.
Despite the age, this SUV features one of the finest cabins in the class. Soft-touch materials and attractive lines are the main characteristics of this cabin. Also, front seats are pretty massive and supportive, definitely some of the finest in class. The rear bench is great as well, as you can count on a quite good amount of legroom.
Despite the size, this is a two-row SUV, which doesn’t offer the third row, even as an option. Still, the cargo area is still a bit disappointing. Almost every model in the class features more cargo volume. The Grand Cherokee is good for about 36 cubic feet behind rear seats, while the overall capacity goes up to 68 cubic feet.
2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engines
This is the area where this SUV really shines. There are a plethora of engines in the offer, which allows you to choose eight powerful or economical version. Base models feature a well-known 3.6-liter V6 engine. In this case, it delivers around 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. If you want something peppier, there are several V8 versions available. The offer starts with a 5.7-liter unit, which is good for about 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT will continue as the second most-capable version in the offer. This one comes with a large 6.4-liter V8, which is good for about 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
Finally, there is the amazing 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which comes with a monstrous Hellcat engine which features 6.2 liters in displacement, a supercharger and a max output of 707 horsepower. With such amount of power, this SUV gets to 60 mpg in just 3.5 seconds.
On the other side, those who are most for something efficient and economical, the company also offers a diesel version. It comes with a 3.0-liter inline-six turbodiesel from VM Motori, which is good for about 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque.
Another good thing about this model is that the company is pretty generous in terms of standard equipment. This particularly refers to tech features, an event the most basic models come with goodies like 7-inch touch screen, a six-speaker stereo, two USB ports, Bluetooth, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Things are getting even better in higher trims.
The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited will add a lot of additional features in terms of comfort and convenience. Some of the highlights are heated steering wheel, heated front, and rear seats, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, and driver-seat memory settings. Most expensive versions also offer things like a larger 8.4-inch touch screen, and a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system, navigation, premium 19-speaker audio system and many more.
When it comes to safety systems and driver aids, rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and rear parking sensors are standard in all models. Adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and many more things are available in higher trim levels.
Release Date and Price
Considering that we won’t see any significant change for the next year, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee release date should be scheduled for the last quarter of the year. Base models should go around 32.000 dollars.
