In a Market Flooded with Driving Opportunities, Which Sport-Utility Vehicle Is Right for You? Compare SUV Heavy Weights From Subaru and Jeep

When it comes to shopping for a new vehicle that can multi-task as both an everyday commuter and weekend adventurer, you likely need something with tough, go-anywhere capability, high-tech amenities and impressive fuel economy ratings. While both the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2017 Subaru Outback are among many drivers first choices in the highly capable vehicle category, there are some clear differences that we would like to outline for your shopping convenience.


The 2017 Subaru Outback vs. the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Safety: When shopping for a new vehicle, safety is often of top importance. You should know that it will cost you more to equip the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee with driver-assist technology than if you were to equip the 2017 Subaru Outback with its advanced and optional EyeSight safety system.  Not to mention the Outback comes standard with Subaru's highly-respected Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system for optimal driving and handling performance.  

Resale Value: When it comes time to upgrade your vehicle, you won't have a difficult time doing it if you choose the Subaru Outback. For example, Kelley Blue Book awarded Subaru with its highly-coveted "2016 Best Resale Value Award." Since Subaru beat out Jeep in this category, it ultimately means that the Outback will retain its value much longer than the Grand Cherokee.

Fuel Economy: Whether you're a busy driver, environmentally conscious, or both, you will be pleased to find that the 2017 Subaru Outback can achieve an EPA-estimated 25 city, 32 highway mpg. The Jeep Grand Cherokee, on the other hand, falls short with 19 city mpg, 26 highway mpg. This, of course, means more trips to the pump and a more evident carbon footprint.

Passenger and Cargo Volume: While both the Grand Cherokee and the Outback can comfortably seat up to five passengers, the Outback can offer more cargo space than the Grand Cherokee-73.3 cubic-feet to be exact, versus 68.3 cubic-feet.

Affordability: If you're still having trouble deciding which sport utility-vehicle is right for you, sometimes it all boils down to the price and which option is more affordable. The Subaru Outback has an MSRP of $25,645, whereas the Jeep Grand Cherokee has a starting MSRP of $30,295. This also means that it will ultimately cost you more for a fully-equipped Grand Cherokee than if you were to opt for the fully-equipped Outback.
