My personal recommendation is to go with the Jeep. It will have a higher clearance to clear debris on the road, especially when going to AK. Maybe set them both up to be towed. One for a trip like you have planned for AK. And the other for regular highway use to paved areas with no off-road (gravel,dirt roads) in sight!

I’d do the Jeep lots of places there you’ll appreciate the extra ground clearance. It allows you to go down some roads you wouldn’t take a care, we towed a Jeep Cherokee up in 2010 and put several hundred miles on it that trip.

Jeep ftw. But you’ll be able to take side trips like to McCarthy or the Denali highway in the cobalt, no problem.
Take whichever one is more comfortable for your wife to ride in
