Jeep tweaks its 2020 Grand Cherokee line-up
Jeep has updated its Grand Cherokee wagon line-up for 2020. The entry-level Laredo has been replaced with the Night Eagle, the Limited has tweaked styling and a new S-Limited model has been introduced. The rest of the range – Trailhawk, Overland, Summit, SRT and Trackhawk – is unchanged.
The Grand Cherokee Night Eagle is available with a 3.6-litre petrol V6 ($59,950) or a 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 ($65,950). It has 20-inch black alloy wheels, black leather seats and a host of added safety features including Advanced Brake Assist, Lane Departure Warning Plus, Auto High Beam Headlamp Control and Full Speed Forward Collision Warning Plus.
The Grand Cherokee Limited is only available with a 3.6-litre petrol V6 ($63,950). If you want the oil burner in a higher spec you’ll have to opt for the new S-Limited variant, which comes with the 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 ($72,950) or a 5.7-litre Hemi petrol V8 ($72,950). Standard gear on the S-Limited includes 20-inch Granite Crystal alloy wheels, sports body kit, black badges and mirror covers, dark lens tail lights, a rear load levelling suspension system and a 220A alternator.
The off-road focussed Grand Cherokee Trailhawk ($75,950) still sports 18-inch wheels and all-terrain tyres, and is comes with height adjustable air suspension, Jeep’s excellent Quadra-Drive II 4×4 system, a rear electronic limited slip differential, a super-effective traction control system with Selec-Speed with Hill Ascent Control (which works like an off-road cruise control) and underbody skid plates.
The top-of-the-range performance variant is still the Trackhawk ($134,590), which packs a 522kW/868Nm 6.2L petrol V8. Phwoar!
