2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

The current-generation Grand Cherokee has been on sale for nearly 10 years. Normally, that would be cause for concern — going that long often results in a vehicle having a stale design and outdated features. But Jeep has done an admirable job of keeping this well-known SUV fresh.

Part of the credit goes to the Grand Cherokee's mix of features. You'll find the latest advanced driver safety aids, for instance, as well as a crisp-looking infotainment system that includes standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The interior has an easy-to-use center console layout, too.

Under the hood, Jeep no longer offers the optional diesel-powered V6. Thankfully, there are plenty of choices left. There's the standard V6 plus three available V8s. From the 5.7-liter V8 with 360 horsepower all the way up to the Dodge Challenger Hellcat-sourced supercharged 6.2-liter V8 putting out 707 hp, there's plenty of entertainment to be had in this family SUV.

The 2020 Grand Cherokee also has excellent off-road and towing capabilities. For a midsize SUV, its 7,200-pound towing capacity is top-notch. Then there's the range of four-wheel-drive systems you can choose from (including the one on the dirt-specialized Trailhawk) that can take you far off the beaten path.

It does have some downsides. Acceleration from the base V6 engine is underwhelming, so we recommend ponying up for one of the V8s. That, alas, is also a potential problem: Once you start adding a lot of specialty options, the Grand Cherokee's value becomes less appealing. But if you're searching for a sturdy and off-road-capable five-passenger SUV, the seasoned Grand Cherokee is one of our top recommendations.

Edmunds’ Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team

Our verdict

7.4 / 10
While the Grand Cherokee was once a class leader, its age is starting to show. It's still sturdy and very off-road-capable, but we recommend upgrading from the standard V6 engine to one of the available V8 powertrains for a bit more gusto. The most appealing value can be found in the the middle of the JGC's lineup with the Limited and the Trailhawk.

How does it drive?

7.0
The standard V6 in the Grand Cherokee isn't very exciting. In our testing, 0-60 mph took 8.0 seconds, which is slow for a five-passenger midsize SUV. We'd suggest getting the optional V8. The brakes, however, are strong. In Edmunds testing, a stop from 60 mph took 124 feet -- a reasonably short distance for a SUV this size.

Part of the problem here is the Grand Cherokee's significant weight, which affects acceleration, handling and overall drivability. Another negative is the steering, which doesn't give you a good feel of the road. This combo makes the Grand Cherokee overly heavy and lethargic to pilot around turns. For off-roading, though, the GC does well thanks to several available off-road-ready options.

How comfortable is it?

7.0
The Grand Cherokee provides an isolated feel in the cabin. The V6 is nicely muted most of the time. At full throttle, there's a bit of a rumble from under the hood that's neither annoying nor particularly satisfying. Otherwise, it's quiet to the point that it's almost serene. The seats are very supportive and the air conditioning works quickly. The heated and ventilated seats, however, aren't very effective.

Our test vehicle came equipped with the optional air suspension. We weren't impressed. It provides a somewhat floaty ride quality on the highway and struggles to soak up smaller pavement ripples. Big bumps are absorbed to a point, but hit one midcorner and the JGC loses its handling composure. The standard suspension might be a better choice.

How’s the interior?

8.0
The Grand Cherokee provides plenty of interior space and has generous headroom and legroom in all four major seating positions. It also has a commanding driving position, good visibility and relatively simple controls. Everything is within the driver's reach thanks to an impressive range of seat and steering-wheel adjustability.

The Uconnect infotainment interface is a bit dated, but it's easy to use thanks to large, grippy knobs for the stereo and fan speed. The only real shortcomings are the thick windshield pillars that obscure some of your view through turns.

How’s the tech?

7.5
The Grand Cherokee Uconnect interface features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. We also like that the voice controls are pretty apt at understanding commands, whether you're entering a navigation destination or changing the climate settings. Audio quality from the optional 19-speaker Harman Kardon system is good, if a bit bass-heavy. There are plenty of charging options for front and rear passengers.

The operation of some of the advanced driving aids, however, is lackluster. Adaptive cruise control and blind-spot warning are both a little too sensitive for our tastes, for example.

How’s the storage?

7.5
While the Grand Cherokee is certainly versatile, its 36.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats isn't class-leading. It trails behind smaller vehicles such as the Honda CR-V. This smaller space is mostly due to the full-size spare under the rear floor. On the flip side, hey, there's a full-size spare! That's something you'll want if you go off-road or tow ― two things the Grand Cherokee does very well.

Small-item storage is limited to a small center console, can-size cupholders in both the front and rear seats, and slim door pockets. The rear child-safety seat anchors are well-marked and easy to find, and there's a good amount of space for most child seats. The standard V6 can tow up to 6,200 pounds, and the optional V8s have an increased maximum tow rating of 7,200 pounds.

How economical is it?

7.5
With the base V6 and the eight-speed automatic, the Grand Cherokee is good for 21 mpg in combined city/highway driving for both the rear- and four-wheel-drive models. Not outstanding perhaps, but it trounces the 4Runner, its main V6 SUV competitor with similar off-road abilities.

Is it a good value?

7.5
Build quality is top-notch in the Grand Cherokee. You'll find tight panel gaps and impressive leather. But decked-out versions such as the Summit get quite expensive, and at that point some luxury rivals start to look more attractive. You'll find the most value with the Trailhawk and the Limited. The Grand Cherokee's warranty is typical. Roadside assistance is good for the class with five years/60,000 miles of coverage.

Wildcard

7.0
The Grand Cherokee's optional air suspension isn't something we'd recommend to lead-footed drivers. We're also not enamored with the base V6. But other choices are available, including the impressive Hemi V8 and the absolutely bonkers 707-horsepower Trackhawk. And of course, the available Quadra-Trac II 4x4 system means you can get pretty far in off-road or snowy conditions. This Jeep is a midsize SUV with a wide range of appeal.

Which Grand Cherokee does Edmunds recommend?

Most owners will be happy with a midlevel Grand Cherokee. There are plenty of features for the class and lots of available options if you want to upgrade or customize your Jeep. For a bit more off-road capability and flare, though, we'd go with the Trailhawk trim level. It has a sophisticated four-wheel-drive system and impressive feature content, plus you can ditch the standard V6 engine for the available 5.7-liter V8.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee models

The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a five-passenger midsize SUV that comes in seven trim levels: Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, Summit, SRT and Trackhawk. Most Grand Cherokees are available with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive (4WD), the Trailhawk is 4WD only, and the SRT and the Trackhawk get specialized all-wheel-drive systems.

Standard feature highlights for the base Laredo include a 3.6-liter V6 engine (295 horsepower, 260 lb-ft of torque), an eight-speed automatic transmission, rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 7-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, and a six-speaker sound system.

For the Limited and above, you can go with the standard V6 or the optional 5.7-liter V8 (360 hp, 390 lb-ft). The Limited adds remote start, a power liftgate, a heated steering wheel, heated front and rear seats, leather upholstery, an 8.4-inch touchscreen and power-adjustable front seats.

The off-road-focused Trailhawk adds unique exterior styling, off-road tires, 4WD with low-range gearing (Quadra-Trac II), and an electronic rear differential that works with a terrain-selectable traction control system (Quadra-Drive II). The Trailhawk also has an adjustable air suspension (Quadra-Lift), underbody skid plates and an upgraded instrument cluster display.

Next in the Grand Cherokee lineup is the Overland. It forgoes some of the Trailhawk's specific off-road upgrades but is otherwise similarly equipped.

The luxury-leaning Summit trim adds to the Overland with a self-parking system, active noise-canceling technology, a suite of advanced safety features, upgraded leather upholstery, and a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.

The high-horsepower SRT trim level is broadly equipped like the Summit trim level. But it also gets a 6.4-liter V8 (475 hp, 470 lb-ft), a specialized all-wheel-drive system (tuned more for high-performance driving than off-road use), summer performance tires, an adaptive sport-tuned suspension, sport-tuned steering and brakes, a sport body kit, a limited-slip rear differential and selectable performance modes.

Then there's the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The Trackhawk gets most of the SRT's standard equipment plus the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 (707 hp, 645 lb-ft), an upgraded eight-speed transmission, an upgraded adaptive suspension, Brembo brakes, and lightweight 20-inch wheels with high-performance tires.

5 out of 5 stars, Sting (G)Ray
David in NJ,
Altitude 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 8A)

Purchased my 6th GC since 04, each shows improvement in design, performance and appearance....Sting Gray, great color with black trim...6 cylinder Altitude, Pentastar, towpackage.So far very satisfied with my purchase.Tows a 4500 pound. Travel Trailer (22FT Airstream), no issues. Love the larger touch screen and added technology added since my 2014.

4 out of 5 stars, Great car terrible Jeep corporate support
JimP,
Trailhawk 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 8A)

I bought this for simplicity of flat towing behind RV. Something changed in 2020 model as owners manual says to disconnect the negative battery terminal which is extremely difficult to access. Jeep customer service cannot tell me correct way to flat tow and they tell me there are no engineers available to research. The 2019 owners manual leaves that step out and it works as designed. Super frustrated but the car is very nice.

5 out of 5 stars, Amazing vehicle does exactly what it says
Jesse Dirom,
Limited X 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 8A)

I work in the Oil and Gas sector in Alberta and drive this vehicle up and down mountain roads, lease roads and over rig mat’s summer, winter, fall (Spring is typically slow for me). It handles well on highway, looks great downtown Calgary, handles great in the bush and with the right tires is glued to the road in the worst conditions. I am also an avid skier and mountain biker with a son and a dog. I have had many other SUVs (Xterra, Explorer, Cadillac, Escape) this is hands down the best one for my lifestyle. My Jeep rides a little higher then most due to larger tires ect... but I can go anywhere a pick up can off road which is all I need given this is what most people drive on site (so roads are built with this in mind) I am sitting at 120k (kilometres - I drive a lot) and no major repairs even my brakes (just checked) are still at 50%. This is my first Jeep ever and I almost bought something else instead. It will not be my last. I plan on buying another one once this ones hits 200k. If your in the market for something you can be confident taking a client to lunch in or hitting the backcountry this is the vehicle for you.

5 out of 5 stars, Best SUV in the class!
J.D.,
Overland 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 8A)

No matter what you use your SUV for this is as versatile as you can get! Almost as much off road capability as the wrangler and almost as many mods available while also being quiet and great ride and handling too. We have the overland model with all the off road gear of trailhawk. The hemi engine is also awesome very simple and easy to work on as it still as port FI, not direct FI and no turbos. Result is still great performance and decent mileage while not costing enormously for maintenance. This is a highly recommended SUV and is top of its class!

Drag Race! Tesla Model Y vs. Jeep Trackhawk — Racing 2 of the Fastest SUVs

Drag Race! Tesla Model Y vs. Jeep Trackhawk — Racing 2 of the Fastest SUVs

[MUSIC PLAYING] ELANA SCHERR: You might be looking at those two vehicles going, like, why would you race them? They could not be more different. [ENGINES REVVING] JONATHAN ELFALAN: Whoo-hoo! ELANA SCHERR: But that's not true. They're both red. Besides both being red, they're both American luxury SUVs that are way faster than anyone would ever think was possible. SPEAKER 2: 3, 2, 1. Go! [MUSIC PLAYING] ELANA SCHERR: If fun was square and red, it would look like this-- the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The Trackhawk is powered by a little engine you might have heard of-- a 6.2 liter supercharged V8 best known for its work in Dodge's Hellcat cars. With 707 horsepower and 645 pound feet of torque and, most importantly, a beefy all-wheel drive setup, the Trackhawk can move all its 5,300 pounds from 0 to 60 in less time than it takes you to say its full name twice. No, seriously, we timed it. 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. If you prefer your fun a little rounder and quieter but just as fast, we've got the 2020 Tesla Model Y here to satisfy. The Model Y weighs almost 1,000 pounds less than the Jeep, so the big guy is going to have to work hard to beat it. This is the Edmunds long term Model Y Performance Performance-- so much performance it's got to be repeated. This is one of those races where the outcome is pretty weighted, in this case partially because of weight. There's a common drag racing adage that for every 100 pounds you're carrying, you're adding a tenth of a second to your elapsed time. So you can imagine that the Grand Cherokee is at a disadvantage. We all have our strengths. Let's see who comes out the stronger here. [MUSIC PLAYING] This is the Trackhawk. And you might know it better as the Hellcat Jeep, because this has the Hellcat engine in it. It has 707 horsepower, and it is way more fun than anything this big has any right to be. JONATHAN ELFALAN: All right. So I'm driving the 2020 Tesla Model Y Performance with the performance package, which gets me a couple other things like wheels, and brakes, and all that stuff. I don't really need to do much to make this thing go fast. It's fast out of the box. I just have to make sure it's in sport mode and hit the accelerator, and it should do its thing. ELANA SCHERR: So Dodge is actually really good about having a lot of race-specific options that are very easy to find. Like, I'm going to throw it in track. I'm going to use the launch control. I'm going to floor it. I'm going to let go of the brake. JONATHAN ELFALAN: You know, I think it's a pretty good match-up, but I'm going to have to go with the Model Y, obviously because I'm driving it. And it's really simple to launch. And I mean, that Cherokee Trackhawk, it makes a lot of noise. It makes a lot of horsepower, like 7,000 horsepower, something like that. ELANA SCHERR: I mean, I think this thing weighs twice what the Tesla weighs. So I'm not expecting to win, but I certainly wouldn't mind if I did. JONATHAN ELFALAN: I'm ready to see the look on Elana's face after this electric car totally destroys her Trackhawk. SPEAKER 2: All right, give me a thumbs up when you guys are ready. Drivers ready. 3-- [ENGINE STALLING] ELANA SCHERR: Didn't hold it. Sorry. JONATHAN ELFALAN: You almost had me there. That was good. [MUSIC PLAYING] SPEAKER 2: Drivers ready. 3, 2, 1. [ENGINE ROARING] [MUSIC PLAYING] JONATHAN ELFALAN: I was in park. [LAUGHS] ELANA SCHERR: Well, it didn't quite hold it anyway. So-- JONATHAN ELFALAN: I guess you can mess this stuff up. ELANA SCHERR: I like that you were in park, because I did that once on a "Roadkill" drag race, and I was totally in park. JONATHAN ELFALAN: All right, I got it this time. SPEAKER 2: Drivers ready. 3, 2, 1. Go! [ENGINE ROARING] JONATHAN ELFALAN: Whoo-hoo! ELANA SCHERR: I'm so mad. [ENGINE ROARING] Oh that's-- that was almost not enough space. JONATHAN ELFALAN: Yeah, that was-- that turn came up pretty quick. ELANA SCHERR: That was funny, because I'm like, oh yeah, we're slowing down. We're slowing down. And then I was like, ooh, well, this is a big car. I don't think I want to make this turn at that speed. And ooh, oh, you're right there. JONATHAN ELFALAN: So how are you feeling after that run? ELANA SCHERR: I feel like no one can say that I didn't do my best to beat you. And I think if this was a half mile, I might have-- I might have had you again. JONATHAN ELFALAN: Were you-- were you creeping up on me? I couldn't tell. ELANA SCHERR: You really went by, and then you didn't keep pulling away. But maybe you were already getting ready to get off. JONATHAN ELFALAN: Yeah, I think so. ELANA SCHERR: I definitely think that if the Tesla gave you more at the launch, it would be a very impressive leaver. I think losing in it doesn't feel as bad as I thought it would because I kind of think I'm having more fun than you. But you could argue. You could argue that you're having more fun. JONATHAN ELFALAN: I will say that your car does make fantastic noises. And as long as I have you, you know, maybe half a car length behind, I can still enjoy your exhaust sound. ELANA SCHERR: Well, rematch? JONATHAN ELFALAN: Let's do this. ELANA SCHERR: I'm going to hope that you screw up your launch even more this time, maybe leave it in park or something. And I think it only would take one big mistake on your part, and I might have you. JONATHAN ELFALAN: I don't think you have a chance. I'm really sorry to say that. SPEAKER 2: Drivers ready. 3, 2, 1. Go! [ENGINE ROARING] ELANA SCHERR: That sadly wasn't even close. JONATHAN ELFALAN: Yeah, I agree with you. But I also feel like I went on the G and not the exclamation point. ELANA SCHERR: That's kind of you to say. That is kind of you. I feel like I waited for the O on this one. But no, I-- I just was behind all the way through. JONATHAN ELFALAN: So philosophically, being a Mopar nut at heart, what is your take on EVs in general? ELANA SCHERR: Well, I mean, I'm a little bit of a traitor. I'm sort of like a gun for hire in that whatever car I am in and is winning is my favorite car of the day. So when I was driving the Tesla in some other races that we did earlier, I was a huge Tesla fan. But right now, I think it's the dumbest, lamest car ever, and I hate it. JONATHAN ELFALAN: I don't blame you. I don't blame you. ELANA SCHERR: Jonathan, I was saying I thought I might catch you if we had a longer race track. And let's try a roll race and see if that's true. JONATHAN ELFALAN: I'll take that bet. SPEAKER 2: Drivers ready. 3, 2, 1. Start rolling. [ENGINE SOFTLY REVVING] [ENGINE ROARING] ELANA SCHERR: So you definitely beat me. And I did let off a little bit early, because I was already at, like, 107. And I felt like even when we were just doing the regular quarter mile race, I barely had enough room to slow down before this turn. JONATHAN ELFALAN: Yeah, that was a good call. I mean, again, you have 1,000 pounds on me. And it seems like the brakes are a little more temperature sensitive. So yeah, I don't think the outcome would have changed. ELANA SCHERR: Oh, you don't think I would have made up those six car lengths in the last 60 feet? Also thanks a lot for telling everybody in the audience that I have 1,000 pounds on you. I think I only have, like, 300 or 400 on you. Oh wait, you meant the car? [MUSIC PLAYING] At our test track, these two SUVs were more evenly matched, posting very similar braking and skid pad results. They were even tied in acceleration to 60 miles per hour and at the quarter mile. So what happened during the drag race? Simple-- weather. We filmed the race at a higher altitude and in hotter temperatures, meaning the Jeep's V8 wasn't able to breathe the air its supercharger demands. Because EVs don't need air to make power, the Model Y was able to repeat its performance more easily. Where was this wind when we were racing? I could have used the tailwind in the Trackhawk. I think that Tesla might have still got me, though. Still, considering how much heavier the Jeep is, I think it did pretty well. And the fact that we have an option-- not just one but two different cars that are so fast, are big, can carry stuff, and are made in America. We're all winners. Well, no, actually that's not true. The Tesla's the winner. So far our Model Y is undefeated. What should we race it against next? Tell us in the comments. And if you like these videos, hit like, hit subscribe. Do both of those things. And follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. [MUSIC PLAYING]

Say what you will about electric versus gas propulsion, but we think it's pretty cool that both of these extremely diverse SUVs are American-made. Who wins?

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. the competition

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Honda Passport

While they're both midsize SUVs, the Grand Cherokee and the Passport offer very different sets of virtues. The Jeep is a robust SUV that can tow more than 7,000 pounds. It's comfortable, sure, but the Passport is in another league. It can't tow as much, nor does it have some of the Jeep's off-road capability. But the Passport is a class leader when it comes to comfort, fuel economy and interior space.

Compare Jeep Grand Cherokee & Honda Passport features

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Toyota 4Runner

Another bold SUV, the Toyota 4Runner can tow and haul big loads or go well off the beaten path. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a little nicer inside, especially on the upper trim levels. But what the 4Runner lacks in sophistication, it makes up for in sheer rock-crawling capability. A choice between these two will come down to what you prioritize.

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Subaru Outback

Redesigned for 2020 and more capable than ever, the Subaru Outback is one of our favorites in the midsize SUV category. A spacious interior, fuel-efficient powertrains and excellent on-road manners help set it apart from the competition. When it comes to towing and outright power, however, the Subaru is no match for the Grand Cherokee.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
