With the Latitude, Latitude Plus, and Limited trim models, you will find a 2.4-liter Tigershark Inline-4 engine that can produce up to 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. Coming optional at the lower-trim models and standard starting with the Limited 4×4 trim is a 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 engine. This V6 provides additional power output, being able to push out 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. One of Jeep’s most advanced engines is also offered with the Cherokee as an optional addition; the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine offers the best of both worlds, with 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque potential while also achieving a highway fuel economy of 31 mpg. Each Cherokee engine is paired with a smooth nine-speed automatic transmission. One of the most impressive systems with the Cherokee is Jeep’s Selec-Terrain torque distribution system that is offered with each 4×4 trim model and allows you to pre-select terrain type to better establish traction while driving off-road.
How are the features spread through the trim levels?
With the 2020 Cherokee, Jeep offers five different trim models that each offer a varying level of features and even can specialize the capabilities of the SUV.

The Latitude Plus adds in additional features fog lamps, power-adjustable front seats with lumbar support, additional USB ports, and the optional addition of dual-zone automatic temperature control and a panoramic sunroof. The Limited trim continues to add in even more features such as a premium Alpine audio system, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Nappa leather seating, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable seats with memory seats, built-in windshield wiper deicer, and 18-inch wheels. The highest level trim offered with the Cherokee is the Overland, that further enhances the comfort and convenience of the Cherokee with features such as larger 19-inch wheels, premium leather seats that can be heated or ventilated, a five-year trial of SiriusXM Radio, a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen with Uconnect 4C Navigation support, and a hands-free power liftgate. Jeep also brings in the Trailhawk trim, which features a list of off-road-oriented features such as a tuned off-road suspension, all-terrain tires, a rear locking differential, hill descent control, and underbody skid plates for extra protection while off-roading.
