If there’s one brand name that stands out for off-road capability among SUVs, Jeep is undoubtedly it. Jeep’s vehicles are renowned for their legendary off-road handling, and the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee is no exception. The Grand Cherokee is part of the fourth generation of Grand Cherokee vehicles that dates back to 2011. It doesn’t get many updates for the 2020 model year, except for a revised mechanical lineup that includes eliminating the diesel engine. This year’s Grand Cherokee features a lavish interior fully loaded with technology and abundant luxury. There are also many options for customizing your Grand Cherokee for a custom finish. The Grand Cherokee competes with several SUVs, including the 2020 Toyota Highlander. But the Grand Cherokee surpasses the Highlander in interior comfort, off-road performance, and overall value.
