Subaru Outback

Subaru Outback Illinois

Sleek and beautiful, yet rugged and dependable, the Subaru Outback is built to take you places you’ve never been before.


Go-Everywhere capability

The Subaru takes pride in its ability to take you just about anywhere, whatever the challenge, whatever the terrain. For example, standard Symmetrical All-wheel drive on all Outbacks provides exceptional stability, impressive efficiency and a quick response to all driving conditions.

Further, you can conquer just about any terrain thanks to Outback’s 8.7 inches of ground clearance and the standard X-MODE which optimizes the Symmetrical All-wheel drive system for maximum traction on slippery surfaces, common during a Chicago winter. X-MODE also incorporates Hill Descent Control for stability and confidence when descending steep grades.

Standard roof rails and crossbars provide extra cargo-carrying capability for large items like bikes and kayaks. But when not in use, they fold away so that you don’t get wind noise and lower fuel efficiency on your daily commute.


In addition to the 175 HP SUBARU BOXER engine that gives you up to 32 MPG/highway, the Outback also features an available 256 HP 6-cylinder engine for more performance and towing power.

Comfortable environment

Inside, the Outback has up to 108.1 cubic feet of passenger room, along with a stylish cabin for a refined feel and extra comfort. Noise-reducing, laminated front side windows and aerodynamic side mirrors make your ride around Chicago as quiet as possible.

Plenty of technology

Whether it’s the daily commute or the long vacation haul, the Outback has a multitude of technology to keep you entertained and on course. The STARLINK Multimedia system with Apple CarPlay ™ is standard on the Outback, while the hands-free smartphone operation gives you safe and easy connection to your favorite apps, music and GPS navigation as the miles glide away.

Jeep Cherokee

Jeep Cherokee IL

The classic, rugged and dependable, Jeep Cherokee is #1 on the American-made index for the second year in a row.


Hold-your-ground capability

Always known for its dependability, no matter the terrain, the Cherokee continues the Jeep tradition of legendary traction, ground clearance, maneuverability and water-fording capabilities.

The available Jeep Select-Terrain® Traction Management System gives you the power and capability to handle just about anything Mother Nature throws your way. Five efficient modes – Auto, Sport, Snow, Sand/Mud and available Rock – are engineered to deliver the ultimate driving stability by coordinating 12 Jeep systems.

Engine choices

Recent models of the Cherokee give you a choice of three engines. There’s the 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir®, the available 3.2L Pentastar® V6 and an all-new available 2.0L Turbo engine for outstanding efficiency and a great power boost.

Cabin environment

The Cherokee draws its interior inspiration from some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes, with stunning colors and fabrics, carefully crafted from premium materials.

Along with its plush comfort, the Cherokee has a 60/40 split-folding rear seat that gives you 54.9 cubic feet of cargo space.


No matter where your roads from Chicago take you, the Cherokee lets you stay connected to the things that count most to you. The available Uconnect® 4C NAV with its 8.4 inch touchscreen offers Apple CarPlay® support, Android Auto™ integration, the SiriusXM® all Access Package, Navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and integrated Voice Command.
