Thanks to Jeep’s SelecTerrain traction capabilities, you’ll be in control of your 2019 Cherokee whether driving through snow, mud, sand or rock. The 2019 Subaru puts up an impressive 33mpg highway score, but the 2019 Cherokee doesn’t lag far behind with its 31 highway mpg. You’ll be fording water, maneuvering tight corners and dominating trails unblazed thanks to the Cherokee Trailhawk’s specifications. With seven trims, the Cherokee brings more options to the table than the five trims offered by the Forester.

Jeep lets you stay connected at all times, courtesy of Uconnect and available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Subaru offers STARLINK, a similar product to Uconnect on their 8-inch touchscreen, falling just short of the 2019 Cherokee’s 8.4-inch touchscreen display. Both cars even offer WiFi hotspot functionality to keep you linked in at all times.

However, Jeep brings more power to the table thanks to its standard 2.4L Tigershark Multiair 2 engine and the ability to upgrade to a 3.2L Pentastar V6 engine. Subaru offers a 2.5L Subaru Boxer 4-cylinder engine across each trim of the 2019 Forester.
