Jeep Australia has released pricing and specifications for its 2020 Grand Cherokee SUV range, announcing the previously limited edition Night Eagle will now be a permanent offering in the Grand Cherokee range.
Pricing for petrol-powered 2020 Grand Cherokee variants kicks off at $59,950 plus on-road costs for the Night Eagle (pictured above) and $63,950 for the Limited fitted with V6 engines. The petrol V8 S-Limited begins at $72,950 with the hardcore SRT and Trackhawk V8 models starting from $92,450 and $134,590 respectively.
A diesel engine adds $6000 to Night Eagle, bringing the total price to $65,950. However, the S-Limited’s newly-offered diesel option does not add cost as it replaces a pricier V8 engine. Diesel-only models commence with Trailhawk from $75,950, Overland from $79,450 and Summit starting at $85,950. All prices listed above exclude on-road costs.
These prices represent an increase across most of the range compared to December 2019 prices. The petrol Night Eagle, Limited and S-Limited RRPs go up $1500, while the SRT has a $1000 increase. With the diesel option, Night Eagle goes up $2500, Limited and Trailhawk receive a $2000 increase, Summit adds $1500 and Overland gets a $1000 premium compared to 2019 prices.
Jeep Australia claims the price rises were driven by added safety features, which are now standard across the 2020 Grand Cherokee range.

Engine outputs remain unchanged from the 2019 Grand Cherokee with the 3.6-litre petrol V6 fitted to Night Eagle and Limited outputting 213kW/347Nm and the 5.7-litre V8 found in the S-Limited producing 259kW/520Nm. The SRT’s tuned 6.4-litre V8 outputs 344kW/624Nm and the Trackhawk’s supercharged 6.2-litre V8 unit makes 522kW/868Nm.
The 3.0-litre diesel V6 produces 184kW and 570Nm in all trims. All variants send power through an eight-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive layout. All diesel-powered trims and the petrol S-Limited are rated at a 3500kg braked towing capacity.
Inside, all 2020 Grand Cherokee variants get eight-way power adjustable leather and suede seats, a Uconnect 8.2-inch touchscreen with navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, dual-zone automatic climate control and a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster as standard.
Hill descent control, Jeep’s Quadra-Trac II 4x4 system, a two-speed transfer case, reverse parking camera with front and rear park assist, keyless entry and bi-xenon headlights also appear as standard across 2020 Grand Cherokee.
On top of this, Grand Cherokee Night Eagle gets brake assist, lane departure warning, auto high beam headlight control and a forward collision warning system as standard for 2020.
For Grand Cherokee Limited, standard kit remains, including adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring and rear cross path detection, a parallel and perpendicular park assist, remote start, a nine-speaker Alpine sound system, rear USB charging ports, heated steering wheel, powered rear hatch, and driver radio, seat and mirror memory.
Over the Limited, the S-Limited gains full-leather seats, Granite Crystal alloy wheels, badging and grille, a sports body kit including an SRT sport bonnet, LED fog lights and tinted tail light, headlight and dual muffler tips as standard. A rear load levelling suspension and 220 amp alternator now come as standard on 2020 models.
Standard features remain unchanged on 2020 Grand Cherokee trims above S-Limited.
