2020 Jeep® Cherokee - Stylish Adventure SUV

2020 Jeep Cherokee ReviewThe 2020 Jeep Cherokee is classified as a compact SUV, and it wears that description with pride. Choosing a compact SUV can be difficult because the market is saturated with options from basically every manufacturer. However, the 2020 Jeep Cherokee is a great choice because it offers something for everyone and something that other vehicles in its class cannot offer--excellent off-road capability.

Jeep Cherokee Off-Roading

There is only one compact SUV that offers off-road capability that can take drivers to locations not yet explored, and that is the 2020 Jeep Cherokee. Starting with the legendary Jeep ability to handle almost anything thrown its way, the Cherokee includes a rear axle disconnect feature that only engages when necessary, a Jeep Active I 4x4 system, the Jeep Active Drive II 4x4 system, and the Jeep Active Drive Lock 4x4 system.

Jeep Cherokee Models

There are nine models of the 2020 Jeep Cherokee available from which buyers can choose: Sport (starting at $29,016), North ($32,976), Altitude ($33,773), Trailhawk ($35,979), Upland ($36,397), Limited ($37,344), Trailhawk Elite ($38,645), High Altitude ($39,298), and Overland ($42,440). Almost all versions of the Jeep Cherokee are available in front-wheel-drive (FWD) or all-wheel-drive (AWD) configurations; though AWD would be more appropriate for off-roading. The Trailhawk version offers a 3.2-litre V6 engine that tows an impressive 2,041 kg, while the four-cylinder tows up to 1814 kg.

Cherokee Performance

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee is nothing if not powerful. It comes with three powertrain choices, each remarkably paired with an enhanced 9-speed automatic transmission. The two four-cylinder options are the 2.0L turbocharged I-4 engine, which produces 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, and the 2.4L Tigershark MultiAir I-4 engine, which produces 180 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. As mentioned earlier, the available 3.2L Pentastar VVT V6 engine can tow up to 2,041 kg. It also produces 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. All three options come with Engine Stop/Start technology for fuel efficiency and engine longevity.

Interior Comfort

One of the most surprising and alluring things about the 2020 Jeep Cherokee is its interior. Just because the vehicle can handle the trials and tribulations that off-roading brings does not mean that its interior is stiff and dull. Instead, it is quite the opposite. The 2020 Jeep Cherokee radiates refined luxury with many available high-quality interior features, such as a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, Uconnect system, panoramic sunroof, comfortable and supportive seats, and more. The 2020 Jeep Cherokee's Uconnect system is one of the best infotainment systems currently available across all manufacturers. It features well-organized menus, abundant features, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. For interior space, the Cherokee has comfortable seating for passengers, but its cargo area is significantly less than other compact SUVs. On the topic of safety, the Cherokee offers over 80 different safety and security features to protect vehicle occupants. These include a blind-spot monitoring system, sensor-driven parking, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and more. However, many are only available on the more expensive trim levels or at an additional cost.

Overall 2020 Jeep Cherokee Review

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee is a good choice for a compact SUV for those wanting off-road and towing capabilities, superb handling, a smooth ride, a high-tech infotainment system, and many different model options. It does have its limitations with smaller cargo space and lesser fuel economy compared to some rival models. However, the 2020 Cherokee is a Jeep, which still means something and commands respect out on the road. It should definitely be a consideration for anyone looking for a compact SUV that stands out from the crowd.
