2017 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2018 Subaru Outback

You won’t spend long comparing the 2017 Jeep Wrangler against the 2018 Subaru Outback before realizing that the Wrangler wins out thanks to:

  • 3.6L Pentastar® V6 with 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque
  • Best-in-Class off-road performance
  • Up to 3,500 pounds of towing
  • Dana 44 front and rear axles with Tru-Lok® locking differentials
  • 10-Inches of ground clearance

Can the 2018 Subaru Outback even come close to matching those specs and features? Nope.

Engine Performance

The Jeep SUV delivers dominant V6 power as standard, while the Subaru Outback makes do with an uninspiring four-cylinder for lackluster performance.

While the Subaru Outback offers its own V6, it’s only on models starting from $35,395 MSRP, and its 256 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque is still less than what the Jeep Wrangler’s V6.

Utility and Other Performance Features

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler offers more than just power to deliver class-leading performance:

  • Towing: The Subaru Outback tows 2,700 pounds as standard and up to 3,000 pounds with the V6. The Jeep Wrangler is able to tow up to 3,500 pounds.
  • Ground Clearance: The Subaru Outback makes a huge deal of its 8.7 inches of ground clearance, but the Jeep Wrangler easily outclasses it with 10 inches of ground clearance

Still not convinced? The Jeep continues to outfox the erstwhile Subaru by offering:

  • 4:1 Low-Gear Ratio for Best-in-Class Off-Road Performance
  • Tru-Lok® Locking Differentials
  • Dana 44 Front and Rear Axles with Tru-Lok® Locking Differentials

Design and Convenience

There’s no getting away from just how dull and pedestrian the Subaru Outback looks. In contrast, the Jeep Wrangler is a deeply evocative adventure machine that offers:

  • A choice between contrasting black/body-colour hardtop and an easy-to-open Sunrider® soft top
  • A choice between removable, full-framed doors with roll-up windows, standard doors, or removable half-framed doors.

Like all Jeep models, the Wrangler it offers plenty of space inside. And as befitting its status as a solid performer, it’s available with a wide range of Jeep® Performance Parts, including:

  • Suspension Lift Kits
  • Bumpers
  • Winches
  • Rock Rails
  • Differential Guards
