If you are trying to pick between the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Toyota Highlander as your next SUV, our Thompson Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram (CJDR) of Harford County team is here to help.

Below, you can learn more about the performance, design, and features of these two SUVs, so you can choose which one is better suited for your drives around Edgewood, Bel Air, and Aberdeen, Maryland.

2020 Grand Cherokee vs 2020 Highlander: Performance

Since SUVs are all about versatility, lets see what these vehicles are truly capable of….

  • Normal driving: The Grand Cherokee and Highlander come with similar performances for your daily drives, thanks to their 295-horsepower V6 engines. Both can balance that power with efficient performance, too.
  • Powerful capabilities: With the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you can take your normal commute to the next level with the available 707-horsepower Supercharged 6.2L V8 engine as it takes you from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.5 seconds.

If you need to tow with either vehicle, you will be able to do that, as well. However, the 2020 Grand Cherokee has more strength, with a towing capacity of up to 7,200 pounds. At most, the Highlander can tow 5,000 pounds.

  • Bad weather: Driving during any season is possible in either model. This is thanks to the available 4x4 systems in the Grand Cherokee and available all-wheel drive system in the Highlander. They also feature heated outside mirrors and available rain-sensing wipers to keep your visibility clear, even during harsh weather.
  • Off-roading: While each model does offer terrain management systems that have various driving modes for riding through mud, sand, and other types of trails, the Jeep Renegade has a trim level specifically built for the most adventurous drivers.

Its Trailhawk trim level comes with an advanced Quadra Drive® II 4x4 system, Kevlar reinforced all-terrain tires, and more that helps it take on the toughest of challenges.

2020 Grand Cherokee vs Highlander: Interior

Wherever and whenever you drive, both vehicles feature advanced infotainment systems to keep you connected and entertained during your ride.

With Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ standard in both models, you can connect your phone and pull up directions, reply to messages, and listen to your favorite music.

Along with that, you can quickly adjust your seat in both the Grand Cherokee and Highlander using the standard 8-way power driver's seat. The main difference inside the two SUVs is their overall design.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee comes in a variety of trim levels, each offering a unique blend of luxury and style. This means you'll have more options to design your SUV to your personal liking. Choose among various leather seating with contrast stitching and interior accents made from wood or titanium with the 2020 Grand Cherokee.

Grand Cherokee vs Highlander: Safety

While each vehicle comes with a variety of safety technologies, only the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee comes standard with Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection.

This system can keep you aware of vehicles within your surrounding area that you may not be able to see while cruising along the highway or when in reverse. The Grand Cherokee also has the available Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist that helps make parking your vehicle even easier!
