Today I drive and review the all new 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit with the black roof option!

It's been about 10 years since the current Jeep Grand Cherokee was launched, and though that's ancient in automotive terms, Jeep has done much to keep its flagship Grand Cherokee current. Throughout the years, the midsize SUV has received plenty of upgrades; from new engines to new trims, the Grand Cherokee is taking good care of itself. Its lineup is so extensive that there's pretty much a Grand Cherokee for everyone. From the wallet-friendly Laredo to the Hellcat-powered and performance-oriented Trackhawk, Jeep has the two-row midsize SUV game well covered. One of those newer trims is the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit, which is positioned as the most upscale model of the lineup and offers luxurious materials and features to offer a better overall experience.

It makes sense. As transaction prices rise, brands look for ways to offer even more polished products, and the Grand Cherokee was already highly positioned within the Jeep brand. By offering 20-inch wheels, a unique grille and fascia, and nicer interior materials, the Grand Cherokee Summit distinguishes itself from other mainstream midsize SUVs. Add an optional V-8 and air suspension under its skin, and you suddenly have a really attractive and unique luxury SUV alternative.

We spent a week driving the top-trim Grand Cherokee and asked ourselves if the experience you get is really worth the extra dime.

Designers paid a close attention to the interior, where a sea of stitched leather covers most of the cabin. From the dashboard to the seats to the door panels, the Summit's cabin feels a step above your average Grand Cherokee. Other upscale details include dark wood trim, which contrasts really elegantly with the light brown seats that our tester had. The combination of wood and leather on the steering wheel also raises the luxury experience for the driver.

After many years of ownership, he lost interest in the Charger along with his Studebakers, and the car was for sale again.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is due for a redesign next year, and with the redesign will come a much sought-after third-row option. For the 2020 model year, the Grand Cherokee lineup consists of seven separate models. They include the Laredo, Limited, Trailhawk, Overland, Summit , SRT and

Although the Grand Cherokee Summit leaves a nice first impression, more attention needs to be paid to the details. There's still a large amount of hard plastics on the lower panels betraying the Grand Cherokee's starting price, and the switchgear that looks and feels adequate for a mid-level Grand Cherokee falls short when you're paying over $60,000 for it. The instrument cluster is also due for a redesign, as it's entirely analog and falls short when comparing it to the full digital displays that in use in other modern luxury SUVs at the Summit's price point.

Nevertheless, Jeep has done a great job keeping the cabin updated. The 8.4-inch screen for the Uconnect infotainment system works great; it's fast, has modern graphics and it's easy to use. The system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and it works similar to a smartphone. Some of the controls, like those for the heated and ventilated seats, are found on the screen, but there's no digging for menus here—everything is well labeled and simple to operate. The 19-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system ups the experience inside the Summit; it doesn't matter if you're streaming a song through your smartphone, using satellite radio, or playing a USB file.

The Grand Cherokee Summit not only delights front-seat occupants; it pleases those in the rear. The second row has heated seats, two USB ports, and an optional entertainment system with two screens located on the front seatbacks. The system adds $1,995 to the price of the Summit and includes a DVD player. The downside is that the player is located in the center console, and it pretty much consumes all the space there. Those entertainment systems are still useful but are almost obsolete now, as tablets and smartphones can provide more content and games for kids at a fraction of the cost.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit: The Drive

Our Grand Cherokee Summit was equipped with the optional 5.7-liter V-8 engine, which sends 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. A Quadra-Trac four-wheel-drive system comes standard in the Summit, which will keep the Grand Cherokee out of trouble in case it goes off the pavement. On the road, the V-8 is a true performer. The engine has abundant torque for climbing hills or merging onto the freeway and always feels peppy and responsive. The eight-speed transmission holds gears for as long as it has to and shifts smoothly when it needs to.

Jeep 's Grand Cherokee is unusual in America, not just because of it's off-road ability, but because Jeep has a trim level and engine for every occasion. Want off-road ability? There's a Trailhawk trim for that. Looking for an American Range Rover? Grand Cherokee Summit is the way to go.

On winding roads, the air suspension keeps body roll to a minimum, and whether you drive over bumps or ruts, the vibrations in the cabin are well controlled. Even when driving on Southern California's Palos Verdes Peninsula, which is known for rippled pavement caused by frequent land movements, the Grand Cherokee Summit kept its composure all the time. There's no doubt Jeep has gotten its return on investment back with the Grand Cherokee. The SUV rides on older Mercedes-Benz M-Class-derived architecture, and this has proven to be a solid strategy, as it doesn't drive like it's a decade-old product. The changes that Jeep has made to the chassis over the years have helped keep the Grand Cherokee fresh.

Where we'd like to see more improvement is on the steering feel. Although its soft—like most owners would prefer it—there's little feedback coming from it. The steering is precise, but we wish it gave the driver more feel for what's happening on the road.

Having a Jeep means that you should definitely go off-roading at least once. Besides offering a reliable 4x4 system with a two-speed transfer case, the Summit comes with a Selec-Terrain system with five easy modes to choose from—Snow, Sand, Mud, Rock and Auto. With the air suspension and the four-wheel drive system, the Summit is able to go rock crawling or trail running and it will not hesitate to do so.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit: Should I buy it?

Priced at $62,775, our Summit felt closer to a luxury SUV than to a base Grand Cherokee. Jeep did a great job modifying things in the grand scheme to make its flagship SUV more premium for those who wanted something more exclusive in the Grand Cherokee lineup. Although there are ways where the interior can improve, drivers are getting a more premium experience in the Summit than in any other Grand Cherokee.

And despite being a decade old, the Grand Cherokee doesn't feel antiquated. Its capability off the road continues to be great, and its handling and power delivery are top notch.

We know the next-generation Grand Cherokee is coming soon. How soon? Probably next year. In the meantime, the Jeep Grand Cherokee will most likely continue to be the best-selling two-row midsize SUV and please a big group of people, ranging from those who buy the wallet-friendly Laredo to those who prefer the ultimate experience that the Summit offers.

European auto market hit by record sales plunge .
Europe's auto market suffered a record plunge in April according to sector data released on Tuesday, and is unlikely to make up the loss this year, an analyst said. In April, every EU nation suffered double-digit losses, but Italy and Spain were hit the hardest and posted drops of 97.6 percent and 96.5 percent respectively, the ACEA said. Denmark and Sweden fared the best, but their markets were nonetheless off by more than one-third, the data showed. In all, 270,682 new registrations were recorded, compared with 1.14 million in April 2019. Outside the EU, British car sales plunged by 97.3 percent.
