Engine Options of the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee

For decades, the Jeep Cherokee has been one of the most beloved American automobiles. This iconic vehicle is revered for its stunning styling, powerful performance, and great reliability. The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee lives up to this reputation by offering four different engines for you to select from.

Four Engine Options for Your Driving Pleasure

The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee is, like its predecessors, an authoritative driving vehicle. This is due to its engine performance, which comes in a powerful V6 or an even more powerful V8. Choosing an engine is an important decision and various factors need to be taken into consideration, including:


Corresponding features

Fuel economy

Price of the automobile

But, what exactly makes one engine different from another? To break it down, the number of cylinders tells you how large the engine is. The horsepower rating shows how much power the engine generates. A V6 engine has six cylinders, while a V8 engine has eight cylinders.

The general rule is, the larger the engine, the more powerful the vehicle. This is commonly reflected in a higher price tag. And, often models with the largest engines also offer options for the most advanced features. However, if fuel economy is a significant consideration, you may wish to go with a smaller engine as long as you do not mind sacrificing some power.

Here is some information about what each 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee engine offers so that you can decide which model would be the right fit for you.

3.6L Pentastar® V6 Engine

When you want great performance and excellent fuel efficiency, the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine is up to the job. This model engine includes Electronic Stop/Start Technology, which means that when you stop the automobile, fuel flow cuts off. This saves gasoline, thus providing you with the highest efficiency possible. With up to 295 horsepower, it has the ability to tow up to 6,200 pounds. That makes this pick just as great for hauling work items as it does for towing recreational toys on your vacation.

5.7L Hemi® V8 Engine

The next on the list is the 5.7L Hemi® V8 Engine, which increases the amount of horsepower to up to 360 horsepower. Although you have the ability to use all 8 cylinders when the situation calls for it, environmental and fuel efficiencies have been implemented with the use of an advanced technology that automatically deactivates half of the vehicle’s cylinders when they are not necessary. This means savings in your pocket since you do not need to fill up your tank as often as you would otherwise. And with 390 lb.-ft of torque, you are now able to tow up to 7,200 pounds.

6.4L SRT® V8 Engine

Moving along, this option gives an even greater amount of horsepower to provide you with the power you crave. The 6.4L SRT® V8 engine has 8-speed automatic transmission and offers a towing capacity of up to 7,200 pounds. For your driving pleasure, there are five different driving modes:






There is also superior handling technology via the Quadra-Trac® Active On-Demand 4X4 System that can take on different kinds of road conditions with ease.

Supercharged 6.8L V8 Engine

The Supercharged 6.8L V8 engine is the ultimate option for your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee. When you need the most power possible, here is your pick, with up to 707 horsepower and a towing capacity of up to 7,200 pounds. The highest quality sodium-cooled exhaust valves, forged-alloy pistons,d and powder-forged connecting rods round out the package, allowing you to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under 4 seconds.
