2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide

Updated on: October 8, 2020


The year was 1992, it was the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. When Bob Lutz, then Chrysler President unveiled Grand Cherokee to the world. The vehicle was no simpleton and the unveiling was not unadorned either. He drove the SUV, up the stairs and through a glass window. Yeah, that's how it was introduced to the world.

Over the years, Jeep has changed many things from looks to power, but one thing has always remained the same, pause, "Soul". The can-do anything, go-anywhere attitude is what Grand Cherokee seems to be full of. Let's find out if the 2020 model still follows the trait.

Expert Review

7.3

Overall Rating


Grand Cherokee is a well-respected name in the automotive world. Since its debut in 1992, the SUV had fought off legends like the GMC Yukon and Ford Bronco to earn that status. With enthusiasm and admiration growing among the masses, the already potent machine gained more muscle and attitude to be one of the most diverse vehicles in the market. Today, Grand Cherokee offers a fine blend of utility and luxury.

The 2020 Grand Cherokee starts off at $32k and maxes at just under $56k. It is offered in both RWD and 4x4 configurations across its 8 trim levels. The base model’s naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 engine manages to deliver 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. In terms of character, Dodge Durango is the only other SUV worthy of being parked next to it. Grand Cherokee faces competition from the likes of Honda's sensible Pilot and Ford's tried and tested Explorer.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Features

7.4/10

Grand Cherokee’s 8 trims make it a tad bit confusing when choosing which one to buy. All the trims use the same 3.6L V6. So, what makes them different are the features onboard.

Laredo is an attractive option for those who want to get their money's worth. Upland and Altitude trims sport a more stylish set of black rims and tinted taillights. Limited adds the interior finished in leather, along with heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Overland trim adds a Quadra lift air suspension system, High-intensity Bi-Xenon headlights, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof along with an interior lavishly furnished in wood and leather.

High Altitude trim provides the drive assist features as standard. It also has an active noise canceling system. At the top sits Summit, where we see a 19 speaker hi-fi surround sound system tailor-made by Harman Kardon for the Jeep, heated and ventilated front-row seats and a set of 20-inch aluminum rims. The tables below list all the features available in each trim.

Which trim to buy?

According to us, Limited is a great choice. Priced at $39k, it offers plenty of kit for its sub $40K price tag. The optional packages such as Protech II provide autonomous driving functionalities which include the Forward collision warning, Lane Departure Warning, Advanced brake assist, Parallel and perpendicular park assist, adaptive cruise control.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Engine and Performance

8.0/10

Jeep seems to have felt no need to refresh the standard engine of Grand Cherokee, and rightly so. Its naturally aspirated V6 is a powerhouse, which is more than capable of thrusting the hefty built of the mid-size SUV. The powertrain makes a healthy 295 horses and 260 lb-ft of torque mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee's engine V6

The drivetrain is quite smooth however in an age of turbocharged motors, the low end does seem to lack a punch that people have come to expect from an SUV of this caliber. One has to rev the engine in order to extract the meat of the power band. Nonetheless, throttle response is not bad although it might require flooring the pedal a little.

Ford used a turbocharged engine in its Explorer which boosts the power but comes with its own trade-offs like turbo lag. On the other hand, Grand Cherokee with its natural aspirated engine has just about the same performance and provides a more linear power delivery.

Jeep Grand Cherokee "0-60"?

Jeep Grand Cherokee speeds away with an unexpected refinement. Despite its heavyweight and bulky stature, it takes less than 7 seconds to sprint from 0-60 mph. The throttle response is linear and gratifying too, which is a delight. Its acceleration feels underwhelming only when compared to its bigger siblings, the Grand Cherokee SRT and the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

When compared to the rivals Grand Cherokee stands high and wide, not only the literal way. It's heavy yet fast, which is no small feat when glancing at the opposition like Honda Pilot which notwithstanding its weight advantage lacks the thrust.

What about Braking?

With its weight and generous size, it's not easy to tame the Grand Cherokee hence the need for the sturdy brakes. Jeep continuing the ritual of not compromising did the exact. There is a little nose dive which is to be expected. The brakes present are the hydraulic due to which the pedal may feel snatchy at first but it sets in well in the first couple of miles of driving.

Weight plays a major role in the braking of any vehicle and this is true in this scenario as well. Honda being the lightest comes to a standstill in the shortest distance, whereas Dodge takes the longest. Jeep surprises us here with its brake bite, as it performs almost on par with Pilot despite its clear weight disadvantage over the Honda.

What about Driving Dynamics?

Ride quality is one of the best aspects of the Grand Cherokee. It offers a calm and plush ride navigating through city streets, fancy the highways, and is at home in the dust. The suspension is tuned optimally for comfort hence you are in the lap of luxury even in the mud and wilderness. But at no point does it feel too cushy or wallowey as a result it manages to stay plated even at high speeds. 

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee side view

The steering is firm which affects the handling so it might not be as nimble as your typical hatchback navigating through narrow city streets or cutting through rush hour traffic, but this does come in handy at motorway speeds. But take it off the tarmac and into the land where no car-based vehicle dares it comes to life and performs beautifully. Grand Cherokee is a whole experience in itself and one has to drive it to believe it. 

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Fuel Economy

7.0/10

The SUVs are known as gas guzzlers and the same can be seen in all these. But the automakers have at least tried to leave that behind and have been using technologies to produce vehicles that are great on gas. 

Grand Cherokee with its Pentastar V6 is a perfect example of that. As it comes equipped with an engine start-stop feature that turns the engine off when it comes to a complete halt. This helps in increasing its fuel efficiency.

Honda staying true to its image is the most efficient SUV out of the group. Closely followed by both Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango leaving Ford for the last.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Interior

7.7/10

The interior changes depending on the trim you go with. As you move up the trim ladder, the SUV becomes plusher, and 'Grand'. The use of leather can be found in the lower variants too but only where it matters and other than that use of hard plastic persists. So, it can be luxurious and rugged, depends on the money spent.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee front seats

The cabin is spacious. Plenty of room both in the front and the back. The tilting and telescoping steering wheels make it easy for a driver of any size to comfortably sit. The driver view is plentiful, but the tick A-pillars sometimes obstruct view while turning. The cabin is generally quiet with the exception of engine noise, although, it sounds good. Tire noise is minimal.

Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango are cut from the same cloth, as they both offer an almost identical amount of space. Where Jeep leads by hair width in the front shoulder, Dodge has an upper hand in the back shoulder space. But they are not competing for the winner's chair, that belongs to both Honda Pilot and Ford Explorer.

How does the Grand Cherokee's Infotainment system fair?

Jeep has one of the best infotainment systems, called Uconnect. It is easy to use and the touch-screen is snappy. The base variant gets a 5.0-inch screen which is not enough, Jeep offers an 8.4-inch screen that gets the job done. The SUV has six-speaker as standard but chooses the 19 speakers, tuned by Harman/Kardon, it feels like a home theatre.

Cargo space in the Jeep Grand Cherokee?

The Grand Cherokee’s cargo space may not be class-leading but it is plentiful. A 36.3 cubic feet space with a power liftgate makes it a sensible choice for any long trip. Plus there are rear foldable seats present as well which almost doubles the cargo space.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Exterior

7.0/10

Grand Cherokee is big and bold. It has a character like no other which makes it one in a crowd. Unlike other SUVs, it looks aggressive and merciless. This Sporty look appeals to a specific kind of crowd that wants their vehicle to introduce them before they themselves have to.

The angular cuts, the low aggressive bumper, and the iconic 7 slot front grille mark the identity of any Jeep.

Pretty smooth and refined sticking to the asphalt like a small car. Handling is also quite responsive along with impressive gas average. With the size and built it carries, it's remarkable how easy it is to maneuver it around in city.

Not so grand, Grand Cherokee.

Gas guzzler! I know good performance comes at the cost of gas, but It isn’t that powerful where I could willingly compromise on mileage.
