Jeep is anything but boring. Unlike other SUVs that pack in an undersized engine and avoid giving you options, the 2020 Jeep Cherokee makes sure you have different engines to choose from. After all, different trails may require different engines, so Jeep makes sure you have the engine to tackle whatever road you may come across.
The base engine on the 2020 Jeep Cherokee is the 2.4L Tigershark MultiAir Engine. The engine is designed to help you maximize your fuel consumption. You're not going to find many engines out there in an SUV that allow you to net 31 miles per gallon on the highway, or have a total tank driving range of over 474 highway miles. Well, with the nine-speed automatic transmission paired with the 2.4L I4, you'll have the kind of engine that gives you a superior driving range. The Tigershark engine will give you 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque.
Are you interested in something a bit larger and more powerful? Then you'll want the 3.2L Pentastar V6. This engine is going to give you the kind of added performance you want and the towing you desire. With the V6, you'll have an engine that produces 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. And even with this kind of engine performance, you're still going to get 29 miles per gallon on the highway. You're not going to find that kind of fuel efficiency on an SUV with a V6 very often. Oh, and with the engine, you'll get a best-in-class maximum towing of 4,500 pounds. No other SUV in its class can compete with this.
Perhaps you don't want a V6, though. Maybe you want to go with some more power but keep the engine small. Well, with Jeep, you're never going to end up with a lousy engine. Where other companies offer small I4 engines that cough and churn and struggle to accelerate, that will never be the case with Jeep. This is why if you want a bit more power than the Tigershark engine yet don't want the V6 Jeep brings you an available 2.0L turbo engine. This engine is going to give you 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, all while still making sure you can get a great fuel efficiency set at 31 miles per gallon on the highway.
Whether you're a lover of tech or you simply want to have the best driving experience possible, the 2020 Jeep Cherokee has you covered in spades. And all of it is controlled through the 8.4-inch touchscreen.
