Cons

Trailhawk off-road capability
Sharp infotainment system
Wide range of powertrains

Cons
Lack of standard active safety tech
Bland styling
So-so fuel economy
Inconsistent 9-speed transmission

The Cherokee underwent a significant mechanical and cosmetic update for the 2019 model year, so changes to the 2020 version are minimal. Newly available, though, is an Advanced Safety Group package that includes lane-departure warning, forward-collision warning, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Jeep also is offering two new paint colors for the new year: Sangria and Spitfire Orange.

Pros
Legitimate off-road capability, good ride and handling for the class, Jeep badge adds cred.

Cons
Poor fuel economy, limited cargo space, not a great value.
