2020 Jeep Cherokee vs 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe

We know purchasing a new vehicle is a big investment, which is why we here at Marburger Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM are here to provide you with a comparison of two exceptional SUVs. Below we are going to be taking a look at the 2020 Jeep Cherokee with off-road-capability, available ventilated front seats, and driver assistance features like rear parking sensors. The other model we are going to look at below is the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe with two engine options, available heated seats, and optional four-wheel-drive.

2020 Jeep Cherokee Power & Handling

There are three different engines that are available for the Jeep Cherokee. The first and standard engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that cranks out 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. There is also a 270 horsepower 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 295 horsepower and a 271 horsepower 3.2-liter V6 engine that makes 239 lb-ft of torque. All engines come standard with a nine-speed automatic transmission and can be paired with any of the different models. The Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk comes standard with four-wheel-drive, which is optional for all other models.

The standard engine for the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that cranks out 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. The Limited is available with an optional turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that makes 235 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. You can also equip the turbocharged engine with the SEL model when it is already equipped with the Convenience Package and the Premium Package. Both engines use an eight-speed automatic transmission to shift through the gears. All models come standard with front-wheel-drive, but you can opt for all-wheel-drive.

2020 Jeep Cherokee Features & Design

There are five main trim levels for the Cherokee as well as several sub-trims that add appearance features like blacked-out badging and leather upholstery. The Latitude kicks things off with two USB ports, smartphone integration, a six-speaker sound system, and a 7-inch touchscreen. The Latitude Plus tacks on blind-spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert, and satellite radio. Moving on to the Limited you'll find leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and heated seats. The Overland adds heated rear seats, navigation, ventilated front seats, and sound-deadening windshield. The last main trim is the Trailhawk which is ready for the trail with off-road-oriented suspension, hill ascent and descent control, tow hooks, and all-terrain tires.

2020 Hyundai Santa FeFeatures & Design

There are three trim levels for the Hyundai Santa Fe. The first trim level, which all other trim levels build off of is the SE. This model comes with smartphone integration and cloth upholstery. The SEL comes next and tacks on heated mirrors, leather upholstery, and push-button start. Last up is the Limited model with ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and an 8-inch touchscreen.


The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe put up a decent fight, but it simply couldn't keep up with the 2020 Jeep Cherokee. The Jeep Cherokee simply offers more driver assistance features, better high-tech technology, and luxurious features. The Jeep Cherokee also has an off-road-oriented model that is missing from the Hyundai Santa Fe models lineup.
