Life off the beaten path can be a challenge, but we’d be lying if we said it wasn’t a joy to tackle any terrain you come across. It's for this reason that so many American consumers have put their trust in models like the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Subaru Outback to suit their needs off the track. For 2019, both of these models return to the U.S. with stellar styling, impressive 4x4 capability, and enough tech innovation to satisfy anyone. But, as we all know, there can only be one winner, so today we want to help you find it.

Let’s be honest here – though the 2019 Outback can offer great versatility of its own for a lower price than that of the Grand Cherokee, there’s no denying as to which one of these entries in the mid-size SUV market is best. The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers a Bilstein® Adaptive Suspension system, Electronic Limited Slip Differential, and Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System, all of which can help you (quite literally) get a grip on any stretch of road, paved or not. All the while, the Grand Cherokee is working to keep you safe and sound thanks to driver assistance features that include Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path Detection, Rear Park Assist, Rear Back Up Camera, and many more.
