TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a hugely capable off-roader—or track warrior—wrapped in a smart package. The 2019 Subaru Forester is a well thought-out crossover SUV with exceptional space, a great ride, and standard AWD without a fuel-economy penalty. The 2020 Subaru Outback is more refined than ever and features the same, remarkable off-road capability.
