Every day is an opportunity to discover something new. Trail Rated® and equipped with an available 2.0L Turbo engine with up to 31 highway mpg, the 2020 Jeep® Cherokee is your ticket to exhilarating travels.


The Trail Rated® Jeep® Cherokee has proven its exceptional capability under a variety of weather and road conditions. The five key areas of Trail Rated testing are traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording.


Traction is key. Available Jeep® Brand 4x4 systems help to ensure the right tire has traction when it’s needed.

Water Fording

High air intakes and special water sealing help get you through water obstacles when driving off-road.


Exceptional maneuverability allows you to steer around or crawl over obstacles like rocks, logs or tight spots.


Good articulation helps you climb over large obstacles and maintain contact with the terrain.

Ground Clearance

Pass over off-road obstacles confidently without damaging the underside of your vehicle.


The 2020 Jeep® Cherokee is engineered to handle nearly all weather conditions and road surfaces with skill and confidence. Whether you have to power through a snowstorm on your way to work or brave a torrential downpour on a family trip, three available 4x4 systems offer extra capability when you need it most.

Jeep® Active Drive

Automatically engages four-wheel-drive mode on unpredictable roads and actively monitors slippage.
