Proudly Serving Spartanburg, SC

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee and the Subaru Forester are considerably different SUV options. Both the Jeep Cherokee and the Subaru Forester currently display multiple redesigning efforts as well as a number of admirable upgrades that make each model shine more than their previous models. Due to countless reasons, there are many SUV lovers that would rather own a Jeep Cherokee, and still, some drivers still prefer the Subaru Forester. After carefully analyzing both SUVs and considering details as well as multiple performance indicators, our findings indicate that the 2019 Jeep Cherokee takes the upper hand over the Subaru Forester. Moving forward, we will go into detail and focus on some key performance characteristics, which make the 2019 Jeep Cherokee the very best vehicle to drive between these two SUVs.

Engine Performance

In taking a close look under the hood of the 2019 Jeep Cherokee and the 2019 Subaru Forester we can notice that they have both improved since 2018’s top trims, but it is important to point out that both SUVs still feature very different motors. The Jeep Cherokee Limited is equipped with a massive 3.2L 6-cylinder motor and the 2019 Subaru Forester features a 2.5L 4cyl motor. It is no surprise that the Jeep Cherokee Limited is more powerful in horsepower, which is measured at 271 hp @ 6500 rpm, but the 2019 Subaru Forester features 182 hp which is 7% better than the previous year’s horsepower measured at 170 hp @ 5800 rpm, yet it still features inferior horsepower to the 2019 Jeep Cherokee.

Dimensions

Perhaps one of the most important dimensions of an SUV is legroom. An important figure in legroom is that it always be greater than 40 inches. The Jeep Cherokee and the Subaru Forester feature front legroom of 41.1 inches and 43.0 inches respectively. Since both are over 40 inches, they are great for driving longer distances. The Jeep Cherokee Limited features greater rear legroom than the Subaru Forester does since they feature 40.3 inches and 38.0 inches respectively. The Jeep Cherokee’s greater rear legroom gives it the lead when considering one of the most important comfort indicators for passengers on longer trips.

Warranty

In order to get a grasp of how reliable your SUV is, you can simply compare its warranty level to other vehicles in the same category. Both the 2019 Jeep Cherokee and the 2019 Subaru Forester feature identical basic warranties of 3 years or 36000 miles and even the same drivetrain warranties of 5 years or 60000 miles. The roadside assistance warranty level category is where the Jeep Cherokee outshines the Subaru Forester. The Jeep Cherokee features a 5-year or 60000-mile roadside assistance and will last 66% longer than the Subaru Forester’s roadside assistance warranty of 3 years or 36000 miles. Keep in mind that an SUV that features a superior warranty will almost always end up being the more reliable vehicle if comparing it to an SUV with a shorter warranty. An automaker that takes pride in producing truly solid vehicles generally provides superior warranties that it is confident that it needn’t be concerned about covering for most of its vehicles. If your SUV has a fantastic warranty, it will most likely not result in frequent breakdowns. At worst, your SUV has coverage.
