Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee impresses with style and performance, but lags behind in safety and fuel economy.

Pros
Loads of style after all these years
Plenty of powertrain options
Capable off-road Trailhawk
Five adults fit comfortably
Hilarious 707-hp Trackhawk

Cons
A $100,000 Jeep?
Lackluster efficiency
Subpar safety scores
Aging interior

If it was good enough for 2019, it's good enough now: the 2020 Grand Cherokee SRT is unchanged.In a world where nothing succeeds like excess (and with apologies to Mr. Wilde), the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is just enough. Under its hood is a 475-hp V-8 that partners with an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. With launch control, the SRT can rip from zero to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds. Aggressive bodywork, a sport-tuned suspension, and robust brakes help the SRT handle and brake well enough to make some sports cars jealous.

Pros
Incredible acceleration, bold exterior design, more utility than SRT versions of the Dodge Charger or Challenger.

Cons
Penchant for fuel, expensive, big-bro Trackhawk exists.

Impressive tow ratings for the class

Cons
Firm ride quality may disappoint, even with air suspension
Underwhelming acceleration with base V6
Modest quality of cabin materials can be hard to justify

Sitting atop the Mercedes-Benz SUV hierarchy is the spacious and indisputably luxurious GLS-Class. It's all new for 2020 and it has big shoes to fill—we've named the outgoing GLS-Class to our 10Best Trucks and SUVs list for three straight years—but our first impressions of this new big Benz are very good.

Pros
Tech-rich cabin, spacious in all three rows, refined powertrains.

Cons
Anonymous styling, fussy infotainment system, heavily optioned models carry high price tags

By: 
caranddriver.com

New styling in line with other Mercedes SUVs.Powerful mild hybrid powertrains.Standard adjustable air suspension.All-new third GLS generation launched for 2020.

Pros
MBUX infotainment is outstanding
Tops in comfort and easily seats adults in all three rows
Flexible cargo capacity
Responsive powertrains feel like driving a smaller SUV

Cons
Not as off-road-worthy as some rugged competitors
Somewhat vague steering with large wheels and thin tires
MBUX has a steep learning curve
