Serving Commerce, GA

Your search for a new midsize crossover SUV has taken you directly to the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Chevy Traverse. Initially, it is easy to assume that these models are identical in most areas, but a closer look reveals that this is not the case. After you get familiar with the differences between the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2020 Chevy Traverse, which midsize crossover will you decide to call your own?


The 2020 Grand Cherokee’s exterior is designed to be both aesthetically pleasing and rugged. Its visual appeal comes from the crisp lines and prominent angles that run from end to end. The front end is notably prominent with its LED headlights and Jeep-branded grille. Functionality is boosted by high ground clearance, tow hooks, a power liftgate, power-adjusting, heated side mirrors, and all-terrain tires. The 2020 Chevy Traverse is designed solely for on-road cruising. It has lower ground clearance and an elongated stance. Like the Grand Cherokee, it comes with LED headlights and power-adjusting side mirrors.


The 2020 Grand Cherokee has two rows of seats in the cabin. This is compared to three rows in the Traverse. Because these vehicles are roughly the same size, the additional row in the 2020 Traverse’s cabin means less overall space per row. Both models are available with heated seats, a navigation system, leather material, integrated smart device apps, and other premium features. The Grand Cherokee’s dashboard is impressively styled with beautiful curvature, and this is enhanced by metal and wood accents in many trim levels.


The differences between the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Chevy Traverse continue in their capabilities. The Grand Cherokee is offered in two powertrains, and this is compared to one engine for the Traverse. The Grand Cherokee’s powertrains are a supercharged V8, 6.2-liter, 707-horsepower engine and a V8, 6.4-liter, 475-horsepower engine. The Grand Cherokee also has Brembo brakes, a torque reserve system, Quadra-Trac on-demand all-wheel drive, and other equipment. The Traverse’s powertrain is a 3.6-liter, V6, 310-horsepower engine. This crossover has anti-locking brakes, front-wheel drive, and a few additional performance-impacting features.
