2020 Subaru Ascent vs 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Serving New Bern, NC

Deciding on the specific midsize crossover model and trim to call your own is often easier said than done. For Riverside-area crossover shoppers who want a vehicle that balances functionality with modern features, the primary options to consider are the 2020 Subaru Ascent and the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee. While the Grand Cherokee’s entry-level price is higher than the Ascent's base MSRP, the Ascent has the functionality of an extra row of seats in the cabin. What other differences do you need to check out before deciding on a specific model for your next purchase?


The Subaru Ascent has only one powertrain option available in the 2020 model, and this simplifies your decision-making experience. The Ascent's engine is a 260-horsepower, V6, 2.4-liter engine with X-Mode and a Lineartronic CVT. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is available with two powertrains, and these both have reduced fuel economy numbers in comparison to the Ascent’s fuel efficiency rating.


The Grand Cherokee continues to be part of a generation that debuted many years ago, but Jeep has made a few modest updates to its façade over the years. Despite this, it continues to have a recognizable style. The Subaru Ascent, on the other hand, has been available for only a couple of years. Its style is fresh and appealing, and its dramatic curves couple with solid ground clearance and a prominent stance.


Both the Ascent and the Grand Cherokee have a few common features. However, specific equipment at the different trim levels vary. As you compare the trims carefully, you will find features like smart device integration, heated seats, a navigation system, a hands-free liftgate, a push-button ignition, a powered moonroof, and other gear that you are hoping to have in your next SUV.
