2018 Jeep Wrangler Yellow


2018 Subaru Crosstrek Compare


2018 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

With the Jeep delivering more power, greater capability, and superior tech, it’s hard to see how any 2018 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2018 Subaru Crosstrek could come out in the Subaru’s favor.

Just check out how they compare on:

Engine Options

As ever, the Jeep Wrangler offers exceptional power – the all-new 2018 models provides two options from which to choose:

  • 3.6L Pentastar® V6: Makes up to 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.
  • All-New 2.0L Turbocharged Four-Cylinder: Uses eTorque mild hybrid technology for up to 270 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque.

You’ll tow up to 3,500 lbs.

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is laughably underpowered next to the Jeep Wrangler. Its sole 2.0L four-cylinder putters out just 152 hp for a maximum tow rating of 1,500 lbs. Comparing your Crosstrek against a Wrangler is like bringing a knife to a gunfight.

4X4 Handling

Every 2018 Jeep Wrangler is Trail Rated® – that means they’ve conquered a grueling battery of off-road tests to prove superior traction, articulation, ground clearance, maneuverability, and water fording.

The Subaru offers no such designation, and the Crosstrek also misses out on:

  • New Selec-Trac® Full-Time 4×4 System
  • Rock-Trac® 4×4 System.
  • 4:1 Low-Gear Ratio
  • 84:1 Crawl Ratio

To really make the most of Mount Shasta or the backcountry around Redding, Red Bluff, and Yreka, you need a vehicle that goes where others fear to tread. The Subaru Crosstrek is probably nervous on asphalt.

Interior Features and Space

The Jeep Wrangler is always going to come out ahead in terms of capability and power, but drivers are often surprised to see how high-end its interior features are.

Select amenities include:

  • Uconnect® 4C NAV with 8.4-inch touchscreen
  • Alpine® Premium Audio System with 552-watt 12-channel amplifier, eight speakers and a rear subwoofer.

Those features are absent from the Subaru Crosstrek, which only offers 55.3 cubic feet of cargo space vs. a sprawling 72.4 in the Jeep.
