Apple CarPlay

Automotive technology has been growing by leaps and bounds over the last decade. Beneficial collaborations between top automakers and technology companies have formed to bring consumers the best connectivity and infotainment features available for their vehicles.

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee offers Apple CarPlay connectivity now. It integrates seamlessly with Jeep’s popular Uconnect system to bring you many useful and entertaining features for all your adventures on the road. With Apple CarPlay, you get great safety features like the ability to use your iPhone navigation system, to make hands-free calls, and to access Siri using voice commands. It also lets you play your favorite playlists and podcasts on your vehicle’s audio system while you’re driving.

Plus, many of your iPhone apps will be available to you on your Jeep Cherokee’s touchscreen. The latest version of Apple CarPlay is faster and easier to use than ever. Compatibility with Facebook and Skype are coming very soon.

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee

The Jeep Cherokee has always been a favorite among auto enthusiasts and the 2020 models make it easy to see why.

The 2020 Jeep Cherokees are sharp-look compact SUVs that are comfortable on the highway and have real prowess off-road. It would be easy to write the new Cherokee off as just another comfortable crossover but it’s more than that. It offers the latest high-tech features, an athletic spirit, two strong powertrain offerings, and some towing numbers that are sure to raise eyebrows.

The base engine for the 2020 Cherokee is a four-cylinder but there are two other choices. There’s a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that gets the best fuel efficiency and is the most powerful. There’s also a V6 available and both are impressive performers.

You also have several all-wheel-drive systems to select from. The complex system utilized by the Trailhawk is a great off-roading choice. It lets you go much farther than you can normally in a standard crossover. With the right configuration and equipment, the new Cherokee can actually tow up to 4,500 pounds which puts it at the head of its class.

When it comes to safety features, the Cherokee has what’s needed. There’s adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking. The adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist are only included with the higher trim levels.

With its quiet ride, comfortable seating, and off-roading chops, the 2020 Jeep Cherokee is a top contender in its class.

Technology features

Both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard on all new Cherokees which is certainly good news. The base infotainment system is easy to use and one of the best in its class. The menu is easy to understand and there are useful prompts to keep you from getting too lost and to guide you through the commands that are available.

Using the integration of Uconnect and Apple CarPlay, you can find a radio station, make calls, adjust the internal climate in your Jeep and more, all using voice commands. Many of the alerts can be configured to be audible or visual. Two USB ports are available in the front and two more that just work for charging can be found in the back.

There’s an upgraded infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen that’s even better with incredible audio available with higher trims.

The best features of your iPhone are easy to access with Apple CarPlay. With it, you can enjoy great entertainment and safety in your 2020 Jeep Cherokee. You can also stay connected while you’re on the road so you never miss anything important from work or family and friends.
