Not only has Jeep become a symbol of quality and performance among automotive manufacturers, but it’s also one of the FCA’s best-selling divisions in recent years. Which Jeep model is right for you? Let’s take a closer look at Jeep’s top lineup for the 2020 model year. Then you can decide for yourself.
Jeep’s debut of its first truck since 1992 this model year is christened the “Gladiator.” This Wrangler-based pickup is the new kid on the block in the midsize truck market. It hits showrooms across the country with plenty of brawn too, thanks to a best-in-class towing capacity of 7,650 pounds and a 5-foot steel bed that boasts an outstanding payload capability of 1,600 pounds.
Powertrain-wise, the Gladiator offers a 3.6-liter V-6 that performs well for pretty much everyone. It produces 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Pair it with either a standard six-speed manual gearbox or the available eight-speed automatic.
2020 Grand Cherokee
This new model year offers buyers a modern take on Jeep’s classic SUV. If you’re one of those shoppers that demands the comfort of modern luxuries without sacrificing off-road capability, you’ll love the award-winning Grand Cherokee. It’s available in a whopping seven trim levels from the base Laredo to the posh Trailhawk.
A massive 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V-8 sits under the hood of the Grand Cherokee’s top trim. This monstrosity generates 707 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque, making it one of the fastest and strongest SUVs on dealership lots.
2020 Wrangler Plug-in Hybrid
The legendary Wrangler continues to deliver a few surprises for 2020. Who would have guessed that after almost 80 years, this iconic Jeep would come with a plug? It’s rumored to come with a power electronics module that includes an onboard charger and a DC/DC converter. It will likely pair with a 3.6-Liter V-6 engine to provide additional power and improve overall fuel economy.
The new Compass models remain a top contender in Jeep’s lineup for a budget-friendly, entry-level SUV. It boasts a more upscale cabin than most of its class rivals, and it’s filled to the brim with the latest driver assistance options.
For the new variant, Jeep added even more available advanced safety features right from the base trim, including full-speed forward collision warning, lane keep assist, and rear cross traffic alert. Consider a Compass if you want a trail-rated SUV that offers more interior space than the Renegade.
The charming, subcompact Renegade is steadily growing a cult-like following. The smallest of Jeep’s SUVs, it offers shoppers a decked-out interior and all the remarkable off-road capabilities you’d expect from this automaker — especially the dedicated 4×4 Trailhawk trim.
It delivers a comfortable ride and plenty of technology, too. Get the straightforward and user-friendly Uconnect infotainment system with a 5-, 7-, or 8.4-inch touch screen, voice control, Bluetooth, a USB port, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and navigation.
