2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs 2020 Honda Passport

With SUVs being among the most popular vehicles in the United States, you can expect several different models and styles for you to choose from. Two of the most exciting models are the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2020 Honda Passport. The Grand Cherokee comes with several powerful engines and multiple exciting features, while the Passport is a reliable SUV that is a workhorse in Honda's steadfast lineup. While both of these SUVs are terrific buys, there is one that stands a cut above. Continue reading as we compare both of these SUVs and declare a winner.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Power & Handling

The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the most powerful SUVs on the market, and it starts off its engine lineup with a 3.6-liter V6 that pumps out 295 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Moving up to the Limited, you have the option of a 5.7-liter V8 that increases the horsepower to 360 and the torque to 390 lb-ft. The two highest trims of the Grand Cherokee, the SRT and Trackhawk, have a unique engine. The SRT uses a 6.4-liter V8 that pumps out 475 horses, while the Trackhawk has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with a whopping 707 horsepower and 645 lb-ft of torque. All engines pair with a smooth sailing eight-speed automatic transmission.

2020 Honda Passport Power & Handling

Unlike the Grand Cherokee, there is only one engine option for the Honda Passport, and its a 3.5-liter V6 that makes a reliable, if unremarkable, 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Pairing with this engine is a nine-speed automatic transmission that is smooth. Front-wheel drive comes standard on the Sport, EX-L, and Touring. On the Elite all-wheel drive comes standard, but you can opt for it on all of the other trims if you choose. Overall, we like the engine, but wish it was a tad more powerful.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Features & Design

A remarkable seven trim levels are available for the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and each comes with an impressive amount of features. Starting things off is the base Laredo, which comes with rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 7-inch touchscreen, as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability. The Limited adds rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a 7-inch touchscreen. If you're looking for more off-road features, the Trailhawk has you covered with a unique exterior styling, off-road tires, and an adjustable air suspension. Higher-level trims up things even more with upgraded leather upholstery, a specialized all-wheel-drive system, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, and a ton of advanced safety features.

2020 Honda Passport Features & Design

Only four trim levels are available for the 2020 Honda Passport, but there are some exciting features here. Highlights for the base Sport include LED headlights, keyless entry and ignition, tri-zone automatic climate control, and a seven-speaker audio system. The EX-L adds on to this with a power liftgate, a sunroof, driver-seat memory settings, heated and power-adjustable front seats, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. Topping the range are the Touring and the Elite, which come with a hands-free liftgate, parking sensors, and ventilated front seats. These are some terrific features, but the Grand Cherokee certainly provides you with more.


In the end, the Grand Cherokee is the winner because it gives you more powerful engines and a lot more features than the Honda Passport. Additionally, the Grand Cherokee is a far better off-road vehicle and comes with off-road specific features to further accentuate this fantastic SUV. Are you interested in the Grand Cherokee?
