2020 Jeep Cherokee Review Australia

 

2020 Jeep Cherokee is a 4x4 that is stylish, and at the same time, it is rugged. Describing or saying where the Jeep Cherokee actually fits is hard. This Jeep is something that is unique and is out of the stereotypical box of other such cars. Its uniqueness and originality are what makes it the most favourite car of Australians.

 

If we try to define it, we can say that it is neither big nor small, is a sporty and comfortable drive that defines the future, and takes the hit of its heritage as well. To know more about this clever package with so many different aspects, keep on reading! 

 

Jeep Cherokee engine:

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee Sport features a naturally-aspirated 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine. This four-cylinder engine produces 130kW of power and 229 Nm of torque and is coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The jeep powers the front wheels only and claims a 0-100km/h time of 9.6 seconds.

 

The Jeep Cherokee's Limited and S-Limited variants both feature a naturally-aspirated 3.2-litre V6 engine. This engine produces 200kW of power and 315 Nm of torque. Similar to the sports variant, these two variants are also coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission. In addition, both variants also use Jeep's Active Drive I all-wheel-drive system and claim a 0-100km/h time of 7.5 seconds. 

 

The Trailhawk of the Jeep Cherokee features the same engine and transmission. The only difference is that it runs on Jeep's Active Drive four-wheel-drive system that features a locking rear differential and two-speed transfer case. The Trailhawk claims a 0-100km/h dash in a time of 8.5 seconds.

 

Jeep Cherokee exterior:

The Jeep Cherokee's recognisable nose and quirky design is what make it stand out from the rest of the crowd. Split LED headlight and LED tail-lights design is now standard across the whole range of the 2020 Jeep Cherokee. 

 

It also has a signature seven-pillar slatted grille that screams out Jeep, similar to the badge of 4x4. When it comes to measurements of the 2020 Jeep Cherokee, it is 4651mm in length and 1859mm in width. The sport variant is 1680mm tall, whereas a Limited or S-Limited is 1683mm tall. 

 

In true Jeep fashion, there is a Trailhawk version which is very capable off-road while providing enough space for the whole family. The Trailhawk variant of the Jeep Cherokee measures 4645mm long, 1904mm wide, and 1724mm tall.

 

Jeep Cherokee interior:

Coming to the inside of the Jeep Cherokee, we get a  high-mounted cabin. The cabin is easy to climb into and exit from. In addition, it offers ample space and has great headroom. Thanks to the generous use of glass, which includes a small window at each rear flank, the straight back view is obstruction-free. This free of obstructions view helps to minimise blind spots as well. 

 

In addition to that, there is also an ample amount of seat height adjustment. This implies that their driving seat suits a wide range of driver types. On the rear end of the backseat, passengers can appreciate and enjoy the generous legroom.

 

2020 Jeep Cherokee is easy to use and at the same time. It is also easy to figure out. This is on the grounds that it has a straightforward Uconnect infotainment system. In addition, it also has large, easy-to-wield knobs and buttons. However, if your eyesight is challenged, then you might go for an upgraded, larger 8.4-inch infotainment screen.

 

Jeep Cherokee variants:

Jeep Cherokee safety:

Jeep Cherokee pricing:

There are four variants of the 2020 Jeep Cherokee, and each has its own price. The Sport 2.4 FWD version is available at almost $37,950, Limited 3.2 AWD at $49,950, Trailhawk 3.2 4WD at $49,950 and the top variant, S-Limited 3.2 AWD at $52,650.

 

Pros:

 It is available with a V6 engine

 The turbocharged engines of the 2020 Jeep Cherokee provide smooth and assertive power 

 The absorbent suspension smooths out rough surfaces

 It includes a capable and user-friendly 8.4-inch touchscreen on many models

 The Trailhawk model offers the unique off-road capability for a small crossover

 

Cons:

 The base 2.4-litre engine accompanies sluggish acceleration. 

 It has less cargo capacity than other small crossovers.

 

The final verdict!

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee has moved from its non-traditional design to a more familial Grand Cherokee Light styling. It is the most capable compact SUV in the segment of Jeep fashion. If we were to recommend any mode, we would go with the Cherokee Trailhawk trim level. With this variant, you will get a combo of serious off-road capability and standard equipment. In addition, it also offers more power and better fuel economy. If you are not looking for Trailhawk's off-road bits and all-wheel-drive system, you can always go for the Limited trim level. This is because it also has a bigger touchscreen and some heated seats, and it is somewhat similarly equipped as the Trailhawk. Whatever model you decide upon, always search about the hidden past of the vehicle you intend to buy.
