The latest Ascent receives a handful of new standard features for 2021. These include LED headlights that turn with the steering wheel as well as automatic high-beams. The Touring model also adds another leather upholstery option: Slate Black with silver stitching. And as if the Ascent's incessant beeping notifications weren't annoying enough, all models now have a seat-belt chime that's meant to remind second- and third-row passengers to buckle up.

Pros
Flexible seating configurations,
cushy ride quality,
every model comes with driver assists.

Cons
Apathetic passing power,
noisy engine during hard acceleration,
third row smaller than some rivals.

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

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.
