Grand Cherokee Engines – Refined Power & Performance

All 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee models come with an engine powerful enough to easily handle passing and even off-roading. But for Iowa Jeep drivers that want even more performance, there are three different V8 engines available on the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The base engine is a 3.6l V6 producing 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, and is no slouch when it comes to towing. A V6-equipped Grand Cherokee can tow up to 6,200 lbs. The next step up is a 5.7l HEMI V8 that ups the Grand Cherokee’s power to 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. For Iowa drivers looking to maximize the Grand Cherokee’s towing capacity, this is where you’ll want to start. The next engines in the Grand Cherokee lineup are a 6.4l SRT V8 that produces 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, and the supercharged 6.2l V8 that makes a whopping 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque. Not only can the supercharged Grand Cherokee tow up to 7,200 lbs, but it also goes from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds.

While the 2020 Grand Cherokee can only tow its maximum capacity of 7,200 lbs when equipped with a V8, many Iowa Jeep owners will be satisfied with the 6,200 lb towing capacity of Jeep’s V6. The Jeep Grand Cherokee also uses an advanced eight-speed automatic, as well as cylinder shutoff technology to maximize the fuel efficiency of its engines. Combined, the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s powerful engines and advanced technologies provide inspiring performance and refined power delivery.

Of course, going with the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk will also add unparalleled off-road capability, giving Jeep drivers their choice of any trail in Iowa. Even if choosing to go with one of the luxury-focused trims, Iowa owners of the Jeep Grand Cherokee will find it much more capable than rival SUVs in its class. It is truly the perfect combination of luxury, power, and capability.
