Jeep is a truly authentic brand that has never tried to be all things to all people. The auto company has always focused on what they do best, sport utility vehicles and trucks. Jeep models across the board are built to put in work and deliver results in even the most treacherous driving conditions. In 1941, Jeep developed some of the first light military 4x4s. With a no-frills focus on function, Jeep bred a line of powerful off-road models that continue to beat out the competition in our modern world of smart cars and SUVs.
The Classic Wrangler Gets a Revamp
For 2020, the Jeep Wrangler is better than ever. Its new 3.0 liter V6 eco-diesel engine has the highest torque rating of all time at 442 lb-ft. Other engine options include the 2.0-liter turbo engine or the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, both with optional eTorque. You can get up to 285 horsepower and tow up to 3,500 pounds in the updated Wrangler. After 75 years of evolution, the Jeep Wrangler has grown into perfection.
MSRP starts at just $28,295. Given its reputation for notoriously strong resale value, a Jeep Wrangler is always a good investment. Along with the new diesel engine for 2020, Jeep placed a greater emphasis on comfort and style with this latest model. The interior brings desirable technology, including an optional nine-speaker Alpine Premium Audio System. The all-weather subwoofer keeps the music pumping inside, no matter what type of terrain the Wrangler is plowing through. A 552-watt amplifier and overhead soundbar provide the ultimate soundtrack for all your adventures.
It’s a breeze to keep the new Wrangler looking good with its easy-to-clean design. One-way floor drains let you rinse the waterproof removable carpet free of dirt in no time. If you plan on using your new Wrangler in snowy conditions, keep warm with the addition of heated seats and steering wheel. Dual-zone automatic temperature control lets all passengers enjoy premium comfort for long drives. You don’t have to freeze your hands scraping off icy mirrors. Heated exterior mirror technology on certain trims lets you clear the fog and ice from the comfort of your vehicle.
Four Powerful Jeep SUVs
The Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, Compass, and Renegade make up Jeep’s impressive line-up of new SUVs. Are you looking for safety features? The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee has over 70 standard and available safety features. The Protech I Package comes standard on all models with blind spot monitoring and rear cross path detection. You won’t miss a thing while maneuvering this large SUV. If you’re nervous about fitting into a tight parking spot, ParkSense rear park assist and the ParkView rear back-up camera will set your mind at ease.
Upgrading to the Laredo, Altitude, and Upland models will give you Protech II, including even more high-end safety technology. Forward collision warning with active braking, advance brake assist, and LaneSense lane departure warning with lane keep assist alerts provide added confidence in unpredictable traffic. In addition, automatic high-beam headlamps ensure that you get the best visibility at all times. You can add adaptive cruise control with stop and go technology, parallel and perpendicular park assist and rain-sensing windshield wipers with the Protech III package (available on certain models and standard on higher trims). You don’t have to look very hard to see why the Grand Cherokee has remained a best-selling Jeep SUV. 2020 is no different for this award-winning vehicle.
The 2020 Jeep Compass brings sleek exterior designs, including an available glossy black roof and shiny 19-inch black aluminum wheels. Customize it to have just the look you want, with a total of ten different wheel designs alone to choose from. Piercing Bi-Xenon HID headlamps with an LED signature strip, and tail lights surround you with an illuminating glow at night. The open-air feel of a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, and the convenience of a remote power liftgate, make it easy to enjoy your new SUV. You can use the 8.4-inch touchscreen to connect with your smartphone through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. An available 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot makes it possible to access the internet wherever you go as well. Opt for high-tech Sirius XM Guardian to get futuristic abilities, like starting your vehicle remotely or locating your SUV in a crowded parking lot.
For an SUV that combines comfort with capability, the 2020 Jeep Renegade steals the show. Using turbo engines with start stop technology, you get the best of both worlds in power and fuel efficiency. It features 32 miles per gallon on the highway with the 1.3-liter four-cylinder direct injection turbo engine. That doesn’t come at the expense of power though, with an engine that still puts out 177 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque. Selec-Terrain traction management lets Trailhawk Renegades adapt seamlessly to driving on rocks, snow, sand, or mud. You can keep your cool on steep downhill drives with hill descent control. This automatically applies the brakes while monitoring the speed and throttle of your vehicle.
Welcome the Gladiator Truck
The 2020 Gladiator Jeep Truck is all about the details. Every inch of this pick-up is designed to optimize capability. Front and rear Tru-Lok electronic differentials provide superior traction by giving wheels immediate power when they need it. The Rock-Trac 4×4 system uses a 4:1 low-gear ratio for supreme driver control and torque. Gladiator Rubicon’s with standard manual transmission have an 84:1 crawl ratio. No obstacle is too bulky or incline too steep for this truck. For precise articulation, the exclusive front sway bar disconnect tackles rocky trails with ease. Wheel-to-wheel rock rails made of steel offer drivers peace of mind on even the roughest roads. Unlike in other trucks, you’ll hardly even notice the bumps as you’re driving. The Gladiator’s FOX aluminum-bodied 2-inch-diameter shocks ensure a smooth ride with race-proven dampening control.
Not quite sure how to get around a roadblock? An available forward-facing TrailCam off-road camera helps you navigate by providing grid lines on the path ahead. Don’t let mud splatter block your view. With the push of a button, an integrated washer removes it in a flash. Speaking of pushing a button, using Off-Road+ you can adjust the traction control, transmission shift points, and throttle as needed. Whether you’re crawling over steep rocks or racing through sand dunes, the Gladiator creates an unmatched driving experience. If you’re worried about the delicate machinery underneath your truck, the Gladiator has you covered with high-strength steel skid plates to keep the fuel tank and transfer case fully protected.
You Can’t Go Wrong With a Jeep in 2020
Whether you opt for the iconic Wrangler, an award-winning SUV, or their latest Gladiator truck, Jeep is a trusted brand that won’t let you down. As a long-standing leader in capability, you can be confident that your new Jeep model will be able to handle any off-roading adventures that enter its path. If you’re using your new Jeep as a family vehicle, a rinse-clean interior isn’t just good for mud. It can also come in handy for juice box spills and snack stains. By putting function first, Jeep has achieved great success in creating a solid foundation for any type of vehicle. The addition of new technology and luxurious design elements are the icing on the cake for 2020 models.
