2020 Cherokee vs. 2020 Outback

If you’re seeking an adventure-ready vehicle that is just as capable in the wild as on the road, you have a few intriguing options to consider across classes. The Jeep Cherokee SUV offers the incredible off-roading aptitude that its maker is known for, all while providing a refreshingly modern and comfortable cabin for everyone onboard. The Subaru Outback stands out in the wagon class with some appealing attributes of its own, but which one delivers the top value? Let’s compare them side by side to find out.

Off-Roading Ability

When it’s time to head off the beaten path, there’s no competing with Jeep. The Outback is capable of some modest off-roading for a wagon, but you’d have to spring for the more costly Onyx Black Edition to access specific performance tools and traction settings for mud and snow. The Cherokee lives up to Jeep’s rugged reputation with class-leading off-road prowess, and it can navigate challenging terrain with reliable traction and stability. If you prefer to spend more time on the trails than the pavement, consider the durable Trailhawk trim with its enhanced four-wheel drive and specialized suspension.

Power and Towing

Both vehicles come standard with energetic 4-cylinder engines, while they can also be equipped with even heartier options for more power. When either vehicle is optimized for horsepower, the Cherokee pulls ahead with more umph under the hood. Its available 271-horsepower V6 tops the Outback’s optional turbocharged 4-cylinder, and Jeep’s nine-speed automatic transmission offers steady shifting at any speed. The Cherokee can also tow more weight than its rival, and when both vehicles are equipped to tow, the Cherokee can pull up to 4,500 pounds, outperforming the Outback’s 3,500-pound limit.


No one should pay more for a vehicle that does less, so it’s important to weigh the cost of each vehicle with what they have to offer. The standard Jeep Cherokee provides all its impressive features and capabilities for a more affordable price than the base Subaru Outback, and the two vehicles maintain a price difference as you explore each trim range. A top-level Cherokee Overland still asks less than the range-capping Subaru Touring XT, all while still delivering more muscle than its rival.
