2022 Subaru Ascent vs 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L

Serving Fairfax, VA

For Fairfax-area drivers in the market for a three-row SUV, top options like the 2022 Subaru Ascent and the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L can easily muddle the decision-making process. While the Subaru Ascent has evolved beautifully across several generations, the Grand Cherokee L has only been offered for a year. The Ascent is a more affordable option across its trim line, but what will you get for the money?


The 2022 Subaru Ascent has the bold appeal of a sporty wagon with the dimensions of a roomy SUV. It shows off confident angles through its profile and smooth definition across the haunches. The black molding runs from bumper to bumper. The prominent grille has chrome accents distinguished from the trapezoidal LED headlights. Raised roof rails add to the Ascent’s functionality and style. The Grand Cherokee L has a boxy shape with an almost-horizontal roof. The nose is squared off, and it holds a thin grille with Jeep’s signature block elements. The headlights are flat with an upper LED light bar.


The beautiful Ascent may continue to impress you throughout the cabin with its premium features. These may include a 14-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, ambient lighting, a panoramic sunroof, smart device integration, a navigation system, a forward parking camera, and more. The Jeep Grand Cherokee L, on the other hand, has power-adjusting front seats, an auto climate control system, smartphone integration, keyless entry, power windows, and other items.


These models have exceptional safety features, but the offered features vary. All Ascent SUVs have adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assistance. Other trim levels add a blind-spot monitor, a rear cross-traffic system, rear auto braking, and other gear. Select Grand Cherokee L trim levels could have some of these features. However, you would need to opt for the top trim level for equipment like lane-keeping assistance.
