2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2020 Chevy Traverse

Serving Geneva, NY

If you're looking for a versatile SUV, check out the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The new Grand Cherokee is fun to drive on the street, but it also ranks among today's top SUVs for off-roading. Meanwhile, a spacious interior and advanced safety technologies help make the Cherokee a great family vehicle. Let's find out how it compares to the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse.


Both of these SUVs come standard with a powerful V6 engine. However, only the Grand Cherokee gives you multiple powertrains to choose from. The 5.7-liter, Hemi V8 engine kicks out a muscular 360 horsepower. Meanwhile, Jeep's larger 6.4-liter Hemi engine develops a staggering 475 horsepower. Drivers who demand world-class performance will want the supercharged Hemi engine, which pushes out a thrilling 707 horsepower. A remarkably efficient EcoDiesel engine is available as well. Aside from offering more driving fun, the Grand Cherokee also boasts a higher maximum towing capacity. You can trust the Grand Cherokee to tow up to 7,200 pounds. By comparison, Chevrolet rates the Traverse to tow up to 5,000 pounds.


Drivers who crave off-road adventure will love the new Cherokee. While the Traverse offers all-wheel drive, it's not made to tackle the rough backcountry. Several rugged upgrades are available for the Grand Cherokee. The Trailhawk model is exceptionally skilled at conquering challenging terrain. Some of its off-road goodies include a unique Quadra-Drive II 4X4 system, skid plates, all-terrain tires, and tow hooks. None of these features are offered on the Traverse.


Like the Grand Cherokee, the Chevrolet Traverse offers several exceptional accident-avoidance technologies. Highlights include automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, and blind-spot monitoring. However, Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist is exclusively available on the Grand Cherokee. It reduces driver stress by automatically steering you into parking spaces.
