There's nothing like hopping behind the wheel of a powerful SUV and taking on the Edgewood, Bel Air, and Aberdeen, MD, areas in style. If you're looking for a vehicle that delivers impressive performance features and turns heads as your cruise by, you may be considering the Jeep Cherokee.

Here at Thompson Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Harford County, we're dedicated to helping our drivers every step of the way through their car-buying journey, and we know that starts right here with the research process.

To help make that as easy as possible, we created this handy breakdown of the 2020 Jeep Cherokee engine specs. Now, let's see if this is the right SUV for you!

Engine Specs

To get started, we'll head right under the hood and look at the three different engines you'll be able to choose from.

The standard 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine puts out 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque and provides a 2,000-pound maximum towing capacity, when properly equipped. Plus, the vehicle will get an EPA-estimated 22 city/31 highway MPG rating, which means you'll have a driving range of over 474 highway miles on just one tank of gas.

The available 3.2L Pentastar® V6 engine gives you 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque and a 4,500-pound maximum towing capacity, when properly equipped. This engine comes equipped with Engine Stop/Start technology, which helps improve fuel efficiency.

Finally, the available 2.0L Turbo engine delivers 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque and provides a 4,000-pound maximum towing capacity when properly equipped. All that power doesn't stop you from getting an EPA-estimated 23 city/31 highway MPG rating, though.

All three engines are paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission for a smooth and easy-to-handle ride.

Performance Features

The Jeep Cherokee comes equipped with advanced performance features that help you easily maneuver through storms and rough off-road terrain.

The available Jeep Brand 4x4 systems help to ensure the right tire has traction when it's needed, by automatically toggling between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, depending on the environment you're traveling through.

The available Rock Mode on the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System allows you to effortlessly crawl over rocky terrain without worrying about losing your grip.

You'll never have to panic about your vehicle flooding, either, thanks to the high air intake and special water sealing, which helps you confidently drive through deep puddles and shallow rivers.
