Subaru Outback vs Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • The Subaru lineup offers two engine options to the four engines available in the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The base engine on the Outback is a 2.5-liter that delivers 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque while the Grand Cherokee comes with a 3.6-liter V6 that outputs 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
  • While the Jeep model does offer more power, it will require you to make more stops at the gas pump. The Subaru Outback is far more efficient on the highway (33 to 26 mpg) and in the city (25 to 19 mpg). This is even more impressive when you consider that the Subaru Outback achieves these results as an all-wheel drive model while the Jeep Grand Cherokee falls even further behind.
  • Even though the Jeep lineup is touted as an off-road machine, that doesn't mean it comes standard with four-wheel drive. You need to upgrade to a more expensive model to gain access to that which isn't the case with the Subaru Outback, which comes standard with all-wheel drive.
