This is evident by the prestigious accolades earned by our 2020 models from a variety of automotive critics, with some models winning awards for multiple years in a row. Let’s take a look at which vehicles earned which recognitions.

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Awards

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the most-awarded SUV in history and the 2020 edition adds 3 more accolades to this model’s mantle.

  • Frontal crash test

  • Side pole crash test
  • Rollover resistance test

In addition, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee was also named the Best SUV to Buy by the Car Connection due to its performance on & off the road. Last but not least, the Grand Cherokee also received the IHS Automotive Loyalty Award in the SUV segment based on the number of drivers who keep coming back to this model.

2020 Jeep Wrangler Awards

The SUV that earned the most accolades in our model lineup is the 2020 Jeep Wrangler, with a total of 6 including being the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) 4×4/SUV of the Year for all 10 years the award has been given out. The Wrangler has also been the Off-Road SUV of Texas for the 10th consecutive year based on 2 days of evaluations on and off the road during the Texas Truck Rodeo.

Kelley Blue Book also gave the Jeep Wrangler 2 awards for 2020 based on the value they have as you drive it & when you’re ready to get your next Wrangler. The 2-door model is the Best Off-Road SUV in their Lowest 5-Year Cost to Own Awards, while the 4-door version is the Best Off-Road SUV in their Best Resale Value Awards.

Speaking of value, the 2020 Jeep Wrangler also received the ALG Residual Value Award in the Off-road Utility segment for the 3rd year in a row. Lastly, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon trim was named as the FOUR WHEELER 2020 SUV of the Year for its performance in 1,000+ miles of test driving on various terrains including:

  • Pavement
  • Gravel
  • Dirt including a loose dirt hillclimb
  • Sand
  • Rocks
  • Mud
  • Snow
  • Water crossings

Most recently, the 2020 Jeep Wrangler was named one of AutoTrader’s 10 Best Cars for Dog Lovers for the second consecutive year because of its open-air character, rugged interior & the numerous canine-friendly Mopar accessories that are available for this vehicle.

2020 Jeep Gladiator North American Truck of the Year

2020 Jeep Gladiator Awards

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator marked the return of our brand to the truck market and boy, did it make a great first impression by earning a grand total of 17 accolades in its first year back on the road. The Gladiator’s most prominent award is the 2020 North American Truck of the Year, beating out the 2020 Ford Ranger & 2020 Ram Heavy Duty, for its Wrangler-inspired versatility with removable doors & roof.

Car and Driver put the Gladiator on their 10Best Cars and Trucks list for 2020 because of its utility & the fact that it forced the judges to revisit their priorities when evaluating vehicles for this list. It’s also the Best Mid-size Pickup Truck as part of their 2020 Editors’ Choice Awards due to its trail-rated capabilities, undeniable Jeep character & significant towing capacity rated at up to 7,650 lbs.

AutoTrader gave the Jeep Gladiator 3 honors, starting with naming it as one of their 15 Best Cars of the Decade in spite of it debuting in 2019 for the same reasons stated above. This truck is also one of AutoTrader’s 12 Best New Cars for 2020 for its off-road driving experience & 10 Best Car Interiors Under $50,000 due to features like:

  • 8.4″ Uconnect infotainment system encased in a water-resistant rubberized frame
  • Rubberized controls
  • Soft-touch dashboard
  • Aluminum trim pieces
  • Leather seating surfaces
  • Numerous USB & USB-C ports
  • Lockable storage compartments under the rear seat

Speaking of the interior, Wards deemed the 2020 Jeep Gladiator as having one of the 10 Best Interiors since it’s well appointed & functional for its price point. Some of the things judges highlighted are the vertical instrument panel & center stack controls, quiet cabin & the redesigned 2nd-row seating.

A couple of trims received specific recognition, with the Gladiator Rubicon being named the FOUR WHEELER 2020 Pickup Truck of the Year & Best Mid-size Off-Road truck in the TFLtruck Gold Winch Awards. The Gladiator Overland is part of AAA Car Guide’s Best Vehicles Above $50K list and was named as the Mid-Size Pickup Truck of Texas.

2020 Jeep Cherokee Renegade IIHS Top Safety Pick

2 Jeep IIHS Top Safety Picks

Both the 2020 Jeep Cherokee and 2020 Jeep Renegade have the distinction of being named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). That’s because they each scored the highest rating of Good in the following collision tests:

  • Driver-side small overlap front impact
  • Moderate overlap front impact
  • Side impact
  • Roof strength
  • Head restraint performance

In addition, they both scored the highest score of Superior for vehicle-to-vehicle front crash prevention thanks to the available full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus feature with active braking in the event a collision is imminent. The performance of the optional auto high-beam headlamp control system also helped both SUVs become IIHS Top Safety Picks.
