  • Overview

    When it was first introduced for 1984, the unibody Jeep Cherokee was the original modern crossover SUV. Today, the rest of the market has caught on to this successful formula, but the 2020 Jeep Cherokee continues to offer more capability than any of its competitors. While other compact crossovers are based on car platforms and offer limited performance, the 2020 Jeep Cherokee stands out for its rugged design, powerful engines, and top of the line four-wheel drive systems. If you are looking for a compact SUV that you can take off-road, then there is simply no better option than the 2020 Jeep Cherokee.

    However, this SUV is not only an off-road machine. It is also an excellent daily driver and family vehicle. Despite its performance, the 2020 Jeep Cherokee offers solid fuel economy figures, making it easy on the wallet. Further, it has a roomy interior with a spacious second row and plenty of comfort-enhancing features. But perhaps most importantly, the 2020 Jeep Cherokee is an extremely safe vehicle thanks to its solid construction, numerous airbags, and active safety features. In short, this is a vehicle that truly lives up to the SUV promise of adventure and versatility; it is the best on the market.

  • Performance

    The 2020 Jeep Cherokee is a responsive and confident vehicle. With three powerful engine options to choose from and three different advanced four-wheel drive systems available, the Cherokee provides a level of capability that is not commonly found in compact crossover SUVs. And on top of its excellent performance, it still turns in respectable fuel mileage, making the 2020 Jeep Cherokee an incredible all-around vehicle.

    The base engine in the 2020 Jeep Cherokee is a 2.4L Tigershark four-cylinder. Producing 180 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque, this engine is more than acceptable for daily driving. Paired with the same modern nine-speed automatic transmission that is found in all versions of the 2020 Jeep Cherokee, the 2.4L Tigershark is rated for a combined fuel economy of up to 25 MPG combined. And if the sizable rear cargo area in this SUV is not sufficient for your needs, this engine will handily tow trailers weighing up to 2,000 pounds.

    Alternatively, you can upgrade to a larger 3.2L Pentastar V6 engine with 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque. With this engine under the hood, the 2020 Jeep Cherokee becomes a remarkably quick vehicle that will have no trouble passing at highway speeds or accelerating up steep hills. Further, it will more than double the tow rating of the vehicle to 4,500 pounds. However, this power does come at the cost of increased fuel consumption, and the combined fuel economy figure for the 3.2L Pentastar is 23 MPG.

    Finally, there is the top engine. This is a 2.0L Turbo four-cylinder that generates 270 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Although this might be the smallest of the three engines, its turbocharger more than makes up the difference and gives it excellent acceleration. However, it is not quite as capable as the V6 under sustained loads, and its tow rating is slightly lower at 4,000 pounds. But the greatest advantage of the 2.0L Turbo is its amazing fuel economy. Despite being the most powerful of the three engine options, it has the best fuel economy of 26 MPG combined.

    Further Improving Performance

    The 2020 Jeep Cherokee comes standard as a front-wheel drive vehicle, which makes for a lower price tag and enhanced fuel economy. However, as with all Jeep models, it can be equipped with highly capable four-wheel drive systems. The base Active Drive I 4x4 system will engage automatically whenever your vehicle requires extra traction. The improved Active Drive II 4x4 system upgrades the base setup with the addition of low range mode for slow-speed crawling. Finally, the top Active Drive Lock 4x4 system on the 2020 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk includes a mechanically locking rear axle for incredible traction in all situations. Between these features and the excellent engines, the Cherokee offers many options, allowing the SUV to suit every driver's needs.

    Interior Luxuries

For instance, on top of the dual-zone automatic climate control system, you can add heated and vented front seats as well as a heated steering wheel to help you stay comfortable no matter the weather outside.

    But if you want the maximum capability out of your 2020 Jeep Cherokee, then look for the off-road-oriented Trailhawk trim level. In addition to its enhanced four-wheel drive system with a locking rear differential, this version of the SUV includes countless features designed to make it trail-ready. These upgrades include larger all-terrain tires, beefed-up suspension with increased ground clearance, functional skid plates, and the trademark red Trailhawk tow hooks.
