If you’re looking for a family crossover that’s equally ready for the everyday drive and the extraordinary adventure, there aren’t that many options that are really up to the task. Two of today’s models that are taking a run at it are the 2014 Jeep Cherokee and the 2014 Subaru Outback. The two have a lot in common: seating for five, great interior features, and a variety of trim levels to suit a range of needs and budgets.
As you can see from the chart, they’re fairly comparable in the way of fuel economy, as well. When it comes to additional capabilities, though, like towing and off-roading, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee really pulls ahead of the Outback, due in part to its innovative 9-speed transmission. So, if you’ve got high adventure on the family agenda in addition to the daily grind, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee might just be a perfect match.
