2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Serving Austin, TX

Neither the 2020 nor the 2019 versions of the Jeep Grand Cherokee get significant changes. In 2020, you will find that the diesel engine is no longer available in the engine lineup. Both Grand Cherokees are spacious, five-seat SUVs. They are part of the fourth Grand Cherokee generation that started in 2011. Although they didn’t receive much in the way of changes, the 2020 and 2019 Grand Cherokee models stand out for their plush, well-equipped interiors that provide a pleasant oasis from the outside world. The base trims of both model years feature exceptionally plush cabins with high-end touches and ample technology. More luxurious features and aesthetic details are included higher up the trim lineup. All trims are also equipped with enough off-road capability to conquer any trail, especially when paired with Jeep’s exclusive four-wheel-drive systems. Stronger V8 engines, available in both model years, give the Grand Cherokee more power.


Performance is a strong suit of both the 2020 and 2019 Grand Cherokees. The 2020 Grand Cherokee is available with two engines; the standard engine is a V8 with a 6.4L capacity. It produces 475 HP and 470 LB-FT of torque. The base engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and five driving modes called Sport, Auto, Snow and Tow, Track, and a custom option. A supercharged 6.2L with eight cylinders is standard on the Trackhawk. This engine’s power output reaches 707 HP and 645 LB-FT of torque. It gives the Grand Cherokee a maximum towing capacity of 7,200 pounds. An on-demand four-wheel-drive system provides extra traction and stability in both model years. The base engine of the 2019 Grand Cherokee is a 3.6L V6 that produces 295 HP and 260 LB-FT of torque.


The 2020 and 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee have a virtually identical appearance. Red tow hooks, a seven-slot front grille, and iconic rounded Jeep headlights create a high front end. Daytime running lights are standard, while select trims get LED fog lights and bi-xenon lights. The base trims get 17-inch wheels, while larger 18-inch aluminum wheels are standard on the Limited and up. The top trims get head-turning 20-inch wheels. A shark-fin antenna and a rear roof-mounted spoiler are other notable features of the Grand Cherokee’s exterior. Inside, both vehicles have a variety of seating trims and colors to create a customized cabin.


With Jeep’s signature Uconnect infotainment system, available WiFi, and luxurious features like leather seats and a one-touch sunroof, the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s cabin is upscale and sophisticated. Comfortable cloth seats in your choice of color are available at the entry-level, while the top trims get premium quilted leather seats with ventilation and accent stitching. An optional 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system and intuitive 8.4-inch infotainment system with Bluetooth, voice command, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay support are highlights of the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
