2020 Jeep Cherokee vs. Grand Cherokee: Engines and Performance

Looking for an SUV that controls smoothly on Grand Island roads? Looking for great towing capacity for taking your camper or boat outside of Hastings? Between these two SUVs, drivers have seven engine options for you to choose based upon your needs.

  • Cherokee vs. Grand Cherokee Base Engine: On the Cherokee, 2.4L I-4 Tigershark engine with engine start-stop (ESS) gives you 180 hp. The Grand Cherokee starts out a little more powerful, with a 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine with variable-valve timing (VVT) and 295 hp.
  • Cherokee Engine Upgrades: You can optimize your Cherokee performance with a 270-hp 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine with ESS and a 271-hp 3.2L Pentastar V6 engine with ESS. With these, you can achieve a 9-speed automatic transmission for fun and smooth drives, which is slightly better than the 8-speed on the Grand Cherokee.
  • Grand Cherokee Upgrades: The Grand Cherokee is upgradable with three V8 engine options. A 5.7L V8 engine (360 hp) and a V8 SRT® engine (475 hp) come with fuel saver technology, while a 6.2L Supercharged V8 generates an impressive 707 hp.

While the 9-speed transmission makes the 2020 Jeep Cherokee a performance paragon, the towing capacity of the 2020 Grand Cherokee eclipses its peer by quite a bit. The 7,200 pounds of max towing on the Grand Cherokee is an improvement on the 4,500 pounds of towing on the Cherokee.

2020 Jeep Cherokee vs. Grand Cherokee: Tech Features and Cargo Dimensions

Holdrege drivers doubtless expect the stellar performance of a Jeep SUV to be matched by tons of technology perks inside the cabin. Either the Cherokee or Grand Cherokee give you tons of useful standard features:

  • Sound System: Enjoy your tunes on the highways with a 6-speaker sound system on both of these vehicles.
  • Cargo: One distinguishing feature of the Grand Cherokee is the size advantage, with its 68.3 max cargo capacity best the still-impressive 54.7 cubic feet cargo capacity on the Cherokee.

2020 Jeep Cherokee vs. Grand Cherokee: Price and Trim Levels
