Jeep Cherokee for sale near Nashua

Nashua area drivers have unique, on-the-go lifestyles, and many need a capable and reliable SUV with flexibility, versatility, and good fuel economy. There’s quite a few options for those on the automotive market, which is why today we’re going to compare two of them: the 2019 Jeep Cherokee and the 2019 Subaru Outback.


Both Subaru and Jeep are brands known for their ruggedness and off-road capability. All 2019 Subaru Outback models are equipped with all-wheel drive, while the Cherokee gives you the choice between FWD and 4WD. Those who don’t need any added traction can opt for the FWD model, while a Jeep 4×4 also provides the option of an available Jeep® Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System–so not only do you have 4×4 capability, you can also tailor it to your road conditions, even if you’re off-roading. Both the 2019 Subaru Outback and 2019 Jeep Cherokee can give you all-wheel capability, but only the Jeep gives you options.

Plus, the Cherokee can tow far more than the Outback: Up to 4,500 lbs, compared to just 2,700 lbs for the Subaru.
