2020 Grand Cherokee Redesign & Changes
The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee new generation has been redesigned. Its tailgate now is not as dominant as the current model does. This means that the previously empty, large concave expanse is now broken up. As for the overall design, it looks like a mix between a Grand Cherokee and a Compass.
As for the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee interior, the redesigned cargo area allows more space, bringing its capacity to 28 cubic feet. The car will weigh approximately 200 pounds less than the current model. This is due to the redesign in its center differential for the all-wheel-drive models and the use of lightweight materials such as composite for the tailgate and aluminum for the hood.
