2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Features & Design

There are seven Grand Cherokee trim levels to choose from. The base model comes with smartphone integration, a six-speaker sound system, rear parking sensors, a 7-inch touchscreen, dual-zone climate control, and a backup camera. The upper trims add luxury with features like heated front and rear seats, a power liftgate, leather upholstery, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, noise-canceling technology, a self-parking system, panoramic sunroof, and more! The Trailhawk trim is outfitted for off-roading while the SRT and Trackhawk trim levels are ready to push the pedal to the metal with selectable performance modes, Brembo brakes, sport body kits, and performance tires.
