2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs. 2014 Jeep Cherokee

Comparing the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs. 2014 Jeep Cherokee is no small undertaking. Beyond the facts presented in the table above, the comparison pits Cherokee’s classic seven-slot grille against the large, trapezoidal mouth-piece made famous by Mitsubishi. It’s also a clash of one SUV at home on the trail and another at home in the sprawl of metropolitan living.

As a dealership at home in the metropolitan sprawl of northeastern Illinois, Continental Mitsubishi has pieced together some of the relevant data for drivers comparing Cherokee and Outlander Sport in the Chicago area. While both vehicles measure up in terms of highway efficiency and vehicle safety, Outlander Sport is well-priced and properly equipped for success on the city streets. First things first, however, the combination of Cherokee’s seven slots and confusing headlamp design is no match for the clean, classic style of Outlander Sport and its split, wide-mouth grille.
