Serving Austin, TX

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee, a small SUV, does not get significant changes. There are some changes to the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee, however, including the elimination of the diesel engine. Although it’s understood some updates and refreshments over the years, the Cherokee still has many of the same amenities that fans enjoyed initially. This includes exceptional off-road capability, especially with the Trailhawk, and a suspension system that is tough enough for the trails but gets you through the city (and your most extended car trips) with ease. A variety of customization options await with the 2020 Cherokee, and you’ll find a rugged exterior with classic Jeep elements on any trim level you choose. The 2020 Grand Cherokee belongs to the class of midsize SUVs. As with the 2020 Cherokee, the Grand Cherokee offers excellent off-road capabilities.
