2020 Jeep Cherokee
The 2020 Jeep Cherokee combines a practical daily drive with major potential for off-road adventure.
Why choose the 2020 Jeep Cherokee?
Get the Jeep Cherokee because you want all the benefits that come with owning a compact crossover – around-town maneuverability, cushy comfort, and generous passenger space – as well as best-in-class off-road capabilities.
The Cherokee isn’t your average compact crossover. With three all-wheel drive systems on offer, you can tailor your trim model to suit your thirst for adventure. This little crossover is equally impressive in the towing department, giving you the means to haul your favorite toys anywhere and everywhere.
Which 2020 Jeep Cherokee trim model is right for me?
The Cherokee caters to a wide range of drivers with its five trim models. Choose between the Latitude, Latitude Plus, Limited, Trailhawk, and Overland, which supply varying levels of luxury and capability.
The entry-level Latitude kicks off the lineup with an impressive array of tech features, including a rearview camera, two USB ports to charge devices, and a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration features are also standard.
For a little extra style, check out the Latitude Plus. This trim is home to a power-adjustable driver’s seat and simulated-leather upholstery inserts. Options like dual-zone climate control, a power liftgate, and remote start technology add convenience to your daily drive.
The upscale Limited comes standard with the above options and adds leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a bigger, 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment interface.
Outside, the Overland is uniquely handsome, with body-colored exterior trim. Inside, this classy Cherokee treats you to wood trim, upgraded leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, and heated rear seats.
Off-road adventurers will want the Trailhawk. This Cherokee comes standard with everything you need to roam the wilderness, from all-terrain tires to off-road-oriented suspension tuning. Inside, you’ll find unique seating upholstery.
Is the 2020 Jeep Cherokee AWD or 4WD?
Great question. The 2020 Jeep Cherokee offers three different all-wheel drive systems, each more capable than the last. The Active Drive I system knows when you need extra traction, such as when you’re driving on rain-slicked roads or muddy trails.
The Active Drive II system is more sophisticated, adding neutral and low-range modes. Use the neutral mode to flat-tow your Cherokee behind an RV. The Active Drive II’s low-range gearing mode offers increased traction as you slowly pick your way through off-road territory.
Finally, the Active Drive Lock system comes standard on the off-road-ready Trailhawk. It adds to the other systems’ capabilities with a locking rear differential, giving you even greater precision when the going gets rough. This system also includes Jeep’s Selec-Terrain Traction Management Rock mode, so you can tailor performance settings to suit your current needs.
All-wheel drive is different than four-wheel drive in that the system automatically detects slippage and powers the rear wheels accordingly. It basically works on an as-needed basis. The driver never needs to engage this technology; it helps you maximize precision without ever having to think about it.
How much can the 2020 Jeep Cherokee tow?
In the compact SUV segment, the Cherokee is quite literally a very strong choice. Properly equipped, it can tow max loads of 4,500 pounds. This crossover appeals to drivers who want the modern versatility of a compact crossover but also enough heft to get their boat to the shore every weekend.
