Power and Efficiency

2015 Jeep Wrangler Powertrain
 

All 2015 Subaru Foresters are fitted with the same engine: a 2.5L 4-cylinder. Somewhat underpowered, this provides Subaru drivers with an output of 170 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque, though it does boast 9.6 L/100 km in the city and 7.5 L/100 km on the highway when using an automatic transmission, or 10.6 an 8.4 when equipped with a manual.

The 2015 Jeep Wrangler focuses on power. A 3.6L Pentastar V6 puts drivers in control of a best-in-class 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. As for efficiency, 2-door models manage 14.2 L/100 km in the city and 11.0 L/100 km on the highway with a 6-speed manual transmission, or 14.1 and 11.1 with 5-speed automatic. 4-door models manage 15.0 L/100 km in the city and 11.4 L/100 km on the highway with a manual, or 14.8 and 11.7 on the highway with an automatic.

The 2015 Subaru Forester is more efficient, while the 2015 Jeep Wrangler is far more powerful. Of course, an SUV is for people who want to push their limits, not those who fret over mileage.

Off-Road Capability

2015 Jeep Wrangler Performance
 
 
 
 

When Estevan and Indian Head drivers think about off-roading, they think about Jeep. Years of experience have made Jeep the best in the world for rugged all-terrain contenders, and the 2015 Jeep Wrangler is no exception.
Unlike the 2015 Subaru Forester, each 2015 Jeep Wrangler comes with Trail Rated credentials. Jeep put these vehicles through a relentless series of tests to ensure that every element of off-roading performance goes beyond expectations, leaving Estevan drivers feeling confident when they head off the highway.

Trail Rated vehicles ensure solid performance, and Quadra-Coil suspension ensures durability and a smooth ride. Incorporating solid axles, heavy-duty coil springs, and tunable monotube shock absorbers, the Wrangler’s suspension makes the roughest off-roading feel like a walk in the park. The standard suspension provided for the 2015 Forester simply can’t compete.

Interior

2015 Jeep Wrangler Comfort
 

The exterior of the 2015 Jeep Wrangler is rugged and ready for anything, but the interior offers a supreme level of comfort, as well as plenty of standard features that outclass those found in the 2015 Subaru Forester, including:

  • Sirius XM Satellite Radio: Standard for the Wrangler, with a complimentary one-year subscription. Only available on more expensive Foresters, and with just a three-month subscription.
  • Sound System: The Wrangler comes with eight high-quality speakers as standard, while the entry-level Forester is equipped with a meager four.
  • Storage: Jeep understands that outback adventurers need plenty of space to hold all their equipment, so the Wrangler is provided with double the number of storage pockets than you’ll find in the Forester.

Safety

2015 Wrangler Safety

Both Jeep and Subaru offer exceptional safety as standard, with technology such as traction control and anti-lock brakes included in every model, in addition to a wealth of multi-stage airbags to provide total protection.

However, the 2015 Jeep Wrangler offers stability control with anti-roll, a device that is not found in the 2015 Forester. This means that driving with confidence is just that bit easier when you’re behind the wheel of a Wrangler.
