Jeep Cherokee vs Subaru Forester

Executive Summary

Both are built on car platforms (rather than truck frames) so both offer compliant handling with light off-road capability. Jeep feels roomier for people, Forester better swallows cargo. Forester is more car-like; Jeep offers more rugged off-road and towing performance, and offers a hard-core Trailhawk edition for more serious rock hopping. Either way, since Planet has Jeep and Subaru franchises, you can actually enjoy the process of buying at your undealership.
