The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee remains one of America’s best-selling SUVs for good reason. It is aesthetically pleasing, fun to drive, and can traverse practically any terrain. The 2020 model includes a range of innovative tech features that have become our favorites.
Two Favorite Features of the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee
1. The ProTech Safety Package
ProTech I package comes standard on every Jeep Grand Cherokee. Buyers wanting more protection can upgrade to ProTech II or to the Advanced ProTech II package. Grand Cherokee Summit buyers get the Advanced ProTech II included as standard.
Each ProTech tier builds upon the capabilities from lower tiers. The ProTech I system warns you of vehicles in your blind spot and, when backing up, warns you of those approaching from your sides and rear. While backing up your Cherokee, it cleverly feeds your back-up camera images through your rearview mirror.
ProTech II alerts you when you approach an object too fast and gives you added braking power in deceleration. It alerts you if you accidentally drift into adjacent lanes while driving and can automatically activate your high beams as needed.
Advanced ProTech II
The Advanced ProTech II provides vehicle assisted parallel and perpendicular parking and when driving below 25mph, can warn you of an imminent collision, stopping your vehicle if you do nothing. Its adaptive cruise control feature adjusts your Cherokee’s speed keeping you at your desired distance behind the traffic ahead. When traffic conditions permit, it immediately resumes your desired cruising speed.
2. The Ability to Stay Connected
The Grand Cherokee helps you stay connected in numerous ways. First, with a paid cellular plan, it serves as a Wi-Fi hot spot capable of supporting up to eight devices. And if you use an Apple or Android device, you can access those favorite apps through the Cherokee’s touchscreen platform, the UConnect.
With the UConnect app, you can access your vehicle remotely through your phone. Use your phone to find your Cherokee on a map or to give it commands remotely. Using UConnect, you can lock and unlock your Cherokee, start the engine, sound the horn, activate and adjust the vehicle’s climate control, and get real-time maintenance status reports, all through your phone.
If you have Amazon Alexa, you can give your Cherokee commands using your voice from the comfort of your own home. Have Alexa lookup an address and send it to your vehicle’s Uconnect; the destination will be programmed and waiting in the vehicle’s navigation system before you hop in. Cherokee can also give Alexa real-time updates on its fuel level and other maintenance information so you can stay informed of your vehicle’s status without leaving your bed.
