We're accustomed to the Jeep Grand Cherokee being everything to everybody, and for 2020 Jeep stays on course. The only substantial change was to drop the 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine choice. The mainstream gas-powered engines are the base 295-hp 3.6-liter V6 and a 5.7-liter 360-hp V8. The V6 is a fine engine, but against the V8 its performance feels a touch lackluster; the V8 makes a pleasing sound and amps up the Grand Cherokee's towing capability. Both use a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic. Rear-wheel drive is standard, with a choice of four-wheel-drive systems on offer. The only regular Jeep model that gets standard four-wheel drive is the off-road-focused Trailhawk.
The trim lineup consists of the Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, Summit, SRT, and Trackhawk. Despite the Laredo's comprehensive equipment list, we'd go for the Limited because it ups convenience and comfort and lets you add the optional V8 engine. The SRT models get four-wheel drive as standard and turn the Jeep into a road-biased performance monster—the regular model packs 475 hp, and the range-topping SRT Trackhawk comes with a scarcely believable 707 hp. Given their performance, these two models are quite a good value compared with their rivals. The 2020 Grand Cherokee is a hugely capable all-rounder. Its interior materials and design feel a bit dated, but Jeep's midsize SUV still has a great deal to offer.

Max towing capacity
The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a strong selection of powerplants, including one V6 and three different V8 variants, all ready to meet whatever requirements you might have. The base 3.6L V6 is good for 295 hp and the 5.7L V8 is capable of 360 hp. Both handle a mix of off and on-road driving just fine. Meanwhile, the top two engines—the 6.4L V8 engine punching out 475 hp and the 6.2L supercharged V8 packing an epic 707 hp—are focused on maximum performance, and both deliver it in spades.
The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a real ace up its sleeve with its excellent towing capacity. While the top V8 engines available boast high horsepower outputs and performance figures, all engines across the range are good for potent pulling power. The base 3.6L V6 engine is capable of an estimated towing capacity of 3,500 lbs. when properly equipped and the 5.7L V8 engine models are capable of an estimated max towing capacity of 7,200 lbs. when properly equipped.
For the most part, though, you won't need any extra space in a trailer to store your cargo and luggage for those long trips. The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee is full of room for both passengers and luggage. It offers a total of 105 cubic feet of passenger volume across the front two seats and rear bench seat, and in standard configuration, it offers 36.3 cubic feet of luggage volume. Plenty of room for groceries, but what if you need a little extra? No problem, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee features a 60/40-split-folding rear bench seat for maximum convenience, and when fully folded down, luggage volume goes up to 54.7 cubic feet.
As adept as the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee is on the road, it's over rough terrain that it really comes to life. The Trailhawk trim configuration is geared specifically for off-road driving and features standard four-wheel drive with low-range gearing, off-road tires, electronic limited-slip differential, and Quadra-Lift adjustable air suspension. All of these features—and more—help make the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee an absolute blast to drive when the going gets tough.
The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee's extensive feature list really gives you the maximum value for money, especially when it comes to the interior. On the base Laredo trim, you get dual-zone automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, a seven-inch touchscreen, and a six-speaker sound system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. Just one step up with the Limited trim and you get a powered liftgate, leather seats, heated front seats and steering wheel, and an uprated 8.4-inch touchscreen display. The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a lot to offer for both driver convenience and comfort, even on the base trim levels.
