The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee just keeps getting better. The 5-passenger Grand Cherokee isn’t the newest tool in Jeep’s shed, yet it continues to dominate the field in the areas of luxury, performance and off-road capability. Competitively priced to take on the Ford Edge, Toyota 4Runner and Nissan Murano, many owners consider the Grand Cherokee a more luxurious vehicle on par with the Audi Q5 and Land Rover Discovery.
Despite its impressive off-road credentials, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a remarkably civilized prospect. In both city and highway driving, the Grand Cherokee exhibits the ride comfort of a luxury SUV with the power and handling of a large sedan.
OFF-ROAD PAGES: Access real-time performance data so you know just how far your suspension is traveling, and see how you’re faring on the trail with the tilt-and-pitch gauge. In-depth vehicle diagnostics, including wheel turn, articulation and transmission temperature, all help to provide an optimized experience.
BLIND SPOT MONITORING AND REAR CROSS-PATH DETECTION: These systems monitor the space between you and other drivers. When a side or rear blind spot is encroached, you’re notified via helpful icons illuminated on sideview mirrors and an audible chime.
Like the girl-power pumping quartet, the Grand Cherokee has marched to its own drummer. When it debuted as the larger sibling to the Cherokee nearly three decades ago, it utilized a unibody construction, unlike the SUV competition of the early Eighties that featured body-on-frame designs. Unibody design dominates the utility market today, as it is safer and, more fuel efficient. And with their lower centre of gravity, unibody SUVs handle better and provide a smoother ride.
There’s more than enough power, thanks to the 295-horsepower 3.6-litre V6 engine, and its 260 lbs.-ft torque provides a tow rating of 6,200 pounds (2812 kg), certainly more than up to the towing task. That power is transferred to the four wheels through a precise and smooth TorqueFlite eight-speed transmission, a very impressive gearbox that gives the SUV quick acceleration, but more importantly, a luxury car-like level of ride quality.
The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV has a familiar look that has worn well over the years. Luxurious yet rugged, the GC displays its off-road ability with 8.6 inches of ground clearance.
GRAND CHEROKEE LAREDO Altitude opens the door to the elegant world of Grand Cherokee, offering the capability and style you expect from one of the best-selling SUVs in the world, and at a great value. An impressive list of standard amenities gives you more than expected, with available features that take you even higher. This special edition Altitude offers a combination of luxurious interior features and finessed exterior style, all backed by authentic capability.
Finally, what’s somewhat remarkable about the 2020 Grand Cherokee, and serves as testament to the forward thinking of the design and engineering teams responsible for it, is that 2020 models are nine years into their fourth generation. True, there have been exterior and interior tweaks, but at its core is the same design DNA as that original one way back in 1983.
If success is measured through the test of time, the Grand Cherokee is a winner.
