From smooth pavement to the dusty trails, your next adventure should go off with a bang. As you race around Mansfield, Norton, and Attleboro, MA, looking for a sports utility vehicle, we want to compare two popular choices: the 2020 Jeep Cherokee and Subaru Outback.

The former is a compact SUV and the latter is a station wagon, but each offers something unique. Learn about these vehicles as you read this car comparison—and contact us at Station Chrysler Jeep for more!

New Cherokee vs Outback: Performance Chops

You can expect similar output from the new Cherokee and Outback. As you make your way down those winding roads, you’ll have plenty of power at your disposal—if you so choose.

The Subaru Outback is available with a turbo 4-cylinder engine that cranks out 260 horsepower. It’s sure to put some extra pep in your step.

Meanwhile, in the Jeep Cherokee, the Pentastar® V6 provides the power to match—and more. You’ll see 271 horsepower with this optional engine.

When you head off-road, these vehicles continue to excel. The Outback has Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and X-MODE® to help reduce your wheel slippage.

However, only the Jeep SUV is equipped to handle all the toughest terrain. Its Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System lets you adjust terrain modes for a more capable drive.

Modern Technology Features

A good multimedia system will help keep you connected, and the Jeep Cherokee and Subaru Outback are old pros when it comes to infotainment. Uconnect® in the Jeep––along with its Subaru counterpart––offers advanced connectivity features like Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay®, and Bluetooth®.

No matter how long the drive, your passengers won’t have to stay out of the loop. They can check social media and emails or get some work done with available 4G LTE Wi-Fi® Hotspot technology. Transform the new Cherokee or Outback into a fully connected hub.

One sleek feature in the Cherokee is the available digital instrument display. Customize it to show all the data you can’t drive without. Unfortunately, the Outback lacks a similar feature to the Jeep SUV in this respect.

SUV Interior Features: Versatile Cabins

The 2020 Cherokee and Outback are 2-row vehicles with seating for five. Both offer generous seating and cargo space.

Adults will find the rear seats roomy. The standard 60/40 split-folding function makes it easier to accommodate longer and larger cargo, as well.

Want to brighten up your ride? These vehicles offer available sunroofs, though only the one in the new Jeep Cherokee is panoramic. With the CommandView® Dual-Pane Panoramic Sunroof, even passengers in the rear can take in all the sights and sounds.

Available heated and cooled front seats will keep you cozy in any weather. For more precise comfort, dual-zone automatic temperature control lets you set the climate conditions for your drive—right down to the degree!

Jeep Cherokee vs Subaru Outback: The Winner Is…

There’s little doubt that the 2020 Jeep Cherokee and Subaru Outback are excellent utility vehicles. You can find admirable qualities in both, and Attleboro, Norton, and Mansfield shoppers have a tough choice to make.

If that panoramic sunroof and off-roading ability appeal to you, the new Jeep Cherokee could be a perfect fit. Set up a test drive at Station Chrysler Jeep and see what you think!
