  • Performance

    A white 2020 Jeep Cherokee is driving on a dirt hill with green mountains in the distance.

    When it comes to compact SUVs, some people use them for hauling the kids off to school and heading to extracurricular activities later in the day. Others use the crossover for both city driving and heading out on adventures. Luckily, Jeep understands this concept, and they have created three engines for the 2020 Jeep Cherokee.

    Three Engine Choices on the Jeep Cherokee

    The first is a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that generates 270 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with a nine-speed automatic transmission and FWD, it has a fuel economy set at 26 mpg combined (22 city/31 highway) and can haul up to 2,000 pounds. This powertrain can also be fitted with an AWD system, as well. The second option is a 2.4L Tigershark MultiAir 2 4-cylinder engine that puts out 180 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. Using dual variable valve timing and a flow-control valve intake manifold, this engine enables the Cherokee to travel for approximately 474 miles before needing to refuel. The third choice is a 3.2L Pentastar V6 engine that produces 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque. With the same 9-speed automatic transmission, this model has a best-in-class towing capacity set at 4,500 pounds.

    Advanced Off-Roading Capabilities

    The Trailhawk model is only available with the 4WD system since it was built for off-roading. When you are going over dangerous terrain, Jeep’s Active Drive system will monitor the slippage. Active Drive Lock adds a rear locker and a handy Rock Mode to the Selec-Terrain Traction Management System. This advanced off-roading feature provides you with selectable driving modes to handle different types of terrain.

    Higher air intake and special water sealant enable you to drive through streams with no trouble at all. You don’t have to worry about flooding the engine. A higher ground clearance level also allows you to make it over rough terrain without damaging the underside of the vehicle. Enhance maneuverability, articulation, and traction give you a smooth driving experience just about anywhere.

    Cherokee "Upland" Features

    Then we have the Upland model, which is available with the same interior colors as the base Latitude version. Most of its variations can be seen from the outside, which we will cover in a bit.

    The fifth trim is the Limited. This version offers the same interior colors as the Latitude Plus and the Altitude. The seats are heated and cooled with premium Nappa leather trim for comfort all year long. To keep your hands cozy on cooler days the steering wheel is also heated. Upgrading the infotainment interface to the Uconnect 4C NAV, this system operates on a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen.

    Exterior of the "Latitude"

    Rolling on 17-inch aluminum wheels, the Latitude trim features LED headlights and standard foglamps for optimized visibility. The Latitude Plus rides on 17-inch satin carbon aluminum wheels. The wheel design is the only difference in the exterior of these two trims.

    Exterior of the "Altitude"

    The Altitude features larger 18-inch gloss black 5-spoke aluminum wheels and gloss black badging for a sleek look. However, the Upland model rides on smaller 17-inch black aluminum wheels and features aggressively-styled front and rear fascias. Matte black tow hooks are also included, and the badging is done in black with Sky Blue edging for a high-contrast style.

    Exterior of the "Trailhawk"

    Riding on 18-inch polished aluminum wheels, the Limited features a power liftgate that makes it easy to load up the cargo area even when your hands are full. On the other hand, the Trailhawk model offers two wheel choices. You opt for the 17-inch diamond-cut aluminum wheels or the 17-inch black aluminum wheels. Dual red tow hooks are located on the front of the vehicle, and one more is situated at the rear.

    Exterior of the "High Altitude"

    Lastly, the High Altitude rides on the largest 19-inch granite crystal aluminum wheels and features body-colored fascias and granite crystal badging.

    Color Choices on the Jeep Cherokee

    As for exterior paint colors, Jeep is well-known for its rainbow hues. However, color choices vary depending on trim. Let’s break them down so that you have a better idea about what you will get. The base is available in seven shades, including Diamond Black Crystal Pearl, Blue Shade Pearl, Billet Silver Metallic, Light Brownstone Pearl, Olive Green Pearl, Velvet Red Pearl, and Bright White. The Latitude Plus is available in all of those shades plus two more gray options, which are called Granite Crystal Metallic and Sting-Gray. For the Altitude model, you get one more color choice called Hydro Blue Pearl. The Upland drops back down to the same original seven colors on the base trim, and the Limited is available in the same nine paint colors as the Latitude Plus.

    Shaking things up a bit, the Trailhawk comes in the original seven colors of the Latitude, but it is also available in Hydro Blue Pearl from the Altitude level. As for the top-tier High Altitude model, it is only available in three colors, which include Diamond Black Crystal Pearl, Granite Crystal Metallic, and Velvet Red Pearl.
