Both SUVs perform well, but each has areas where they excel. The Outlander SUV is equipped with a more powerful engine and greater towing capacity. However, the Eclipse Cross is no weakling; all models for sale near Chambersburg can tow up to 1,500 pounds and provide an athletic feel with more relaxed handling than Outlander. These two SUVs are impressively efficient, and there's always the plug-in hybrid Outlander PHEV.
