Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee comes with four wheel drive, and front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 9-speed shiftable automatic.No significant changes for 2020.

Pros
Available V6 and turbocharged engines provide smooth and assertive power
Absorbent suspension smooths out rough surfaces
Capable and user-friendly 8.4-inch touchscreen on many models
Trailhawk offers unique off-road capability for a small crossover

Cons
Sluggish acceleration with the base 2.4-liter engine
Less cargo capacity than other small crossovers

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee cashes in on off-road prowess and luxury features but comes up short elsewhere.

Pros
High-quality cabin
Sliding second-row seat
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
Smaller interior than competitors

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.
