We have a 2020 TRD Pro and a 2011 Grand Cherokee Limited Hemi with 94K maintained to a T. The Jeep is great looking, well built, and rides very nicely (based on Mercedes ML from the Daimler days). We went with the Hemi over the Pentastar for better reliability since the latter was new that year. Here is a list of issues our Jeep has had:

A gasket went bad within first year causing it to burn oil if parked on an angle - fixed under warranty

Water pump exploded at 35K - fixed under warranty

TIPM fuel pump relay recall done around 2014-2015, due to intermittent failure and stalling. Instead of replacing entire TIPM like they should have, FCA installed an external fuel pump relay, which started to fail late this year again. I convinced the dealer their recall did not work, so they performed it again. Apparently, enough people had issues, so FCA issued a letter to owners stating the above recall needs a new recall, and they do not have a permanent solution yet...

Leather seat bottom on driver's side started cracking a lot within last couple of years despite lotioning it and the Jeep going from my garage to a parking garage, so it is rarely parked outside.

Motor mount recently leaked all its fluid out (yes, it had fluid in it), but so far, no harsh vibrations or clunks yet, so we have not replaced them.

We still love the vehicle, and the platform is great. It's just the FCA components of it seem to suck. We were ready to go with a Wrangler Rubicon until that TIPM stuff started again on the Grand Cherokee, so we pivoted and got the TRD Pro. We made the right call I'd say...
