Explore What Sets the Subaru Outback Apart from its Adventurous Peers

As one of our most popular Subaru models, the Subaru Outback has continued to impress local drivers with its all-terrain capabilities and adventurous nature. The performance from its pair of efficient engines make it a tough competitor, especially for the equally adventurous Jeep brand. While the Jeep Cherokee used to be more of an off-road ride, drivers today can expect to find a greater range of success from our latest flagship model. Allow our staff at Maple Hill Auto to dive into what sets the Outback apart from the newest iteration of the Jeep Cherokee.

Subaru Outback vs Jeep Cherokee

  • While the Jeep Cherokee has the benefit of a lower starting price, drivers can only expect to front-wheel drive as opposed to the all-wheel drive capability of the Outback. If you make the jump to the Cherokee's available 4-wheel drive with the base level Sport trim, you can expect to pay a few hundred more than the starting sticker price of our Outback models.
  • No matter which trim level you consider, the Subaru Outback will continue to best the fuel efficiency that is offered by the Jeep Cherokee. The aforementioned Sport trim produces the top fuel economy numbers for the Cherokee with its EPA-estimated 21 city and 30 highway mpg, while the Limited and Trailhawk trims produce either a 21 city and 28 highway mpg or 19 city and 25 highway mpg, respectively. On the other hand, the Outback easily exceeds that with its own estimated 25 city and 32 highway mpg.
  • Beyond the fuel efficiency of the engines offered by both models, the Outback holds the distinction of holding nearly three additional gallons of fuel. As a result, its estimated fuel range excels to an impressive 521 miles, while the Cherokee can only ride for up to 396 total miles.
  • The interior of the Outback offers a bit more room for your passengers to stretch than the Jeep Cherokee, but the starkest contrast is in terms of cargo room. With 73.3 cubic feet of total volume for your groceries, goods or belongings, the Outback will have no problem in any role you give it. Unfortunately you can't bet on the same flexibility with only 58.9 cubic feet in the Cherokee, making our vehicles the better overall choice.

With a variety of reasons and benefits to consider during your search for a new vehicle, the Subaru Outback easily comes away as the top choice for potential buyers from throughout Kalamazoo, MI to consider.
