When shopping for an SUV well suited for these Rockwall, Terrell, Rowlett, and Wylie, TX, roads, you’ve likely found yourself comparing the Jeep Cherokee
vs. Subaru Forester. While either could be an excellent vehicle to offer you a comfortable morning commute, you probably want to find the vehicle that can really elevate your daily drives and weekend trips.
To help you decide, we at Rockwall Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) have put together this Jeep Cherokee vs. Subaru Forester comparison.
2022 Cherokee vs 2022 Forester: Power Under the Hood
Both the Cherokee and Forester offer capable engines. However, if you’re looking for power to help you get out there and explore the unknown, you’ll find that the Jeep Cherokee has more in store.
The 2022 Jeep Cherokee has a maximum towing capacity of 4,500 pounds. While the 2022 Subaru Forester is certainly powerful in its own right, it can only offer a 3,000-pound maximum towing capacity. Also, the Cherokee engine can produce up to 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Comparatively, the Forester engine can only offer 182 horsepower 176 lb-ft of torque.
The Cherokee also features the only V6 engine in its class, which delivers 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. This engine will allow for 4,500 pounds of maximum towing.
If you’re planning to take your SUV on a family vacation, the towing and internal power of the Cherokee might help your trip go a little smoother. Tow along your extra gear and even use the three available 12V DC power outlets, only found in the Cherokee.
Jeep Cherokee vs Subaru Forester: Comfortable Interior
Whether you’re loading up the kids for school drop-offs, or your friends for a fun night out, you’ll want an SUV with enough room to make sure everyone is comfortable.
Both offer available heated front seats and the available power driver’s seat with lumbar support, so you’re sure to be comfortable on the road. They each also have excellent sound systems, so you and your passengers can get lost in the music.
