2020 Jeep Cherokee vs Jeep Compass

When you’re searching for a highly capable vehicle for your adventures around Winter Haven, Lakeland, and Bartow, FL, you may be considering two popular Jeep models: the Cherokee and  Compass.

Jeep vehicles are known for being durable, reliable, and full of performance features. Ultimately, though, you’ll need to do a bit of research to find the right model for you.

Here at Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram (DCJR) of Winter Haven, we’re dedicated to helping you find the perfect vehicle for your lifestyle. In order to make the research process as easy as possible, we’ve created this handy 2020 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2020 Jeep Compass comparison. Now, let’s see how they stack up against one another!

Performance Features & Engine Specs

We’ll get started by heading under the hood of these two SUVs.

The Jeep Compass comes equipped with a 2.4L Tigershark® engine with a MultiAir® 2 valve train system, which produces a whopping 180 horsepower. With this engine, you’ll be able to tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped.

With the Cherokee, you’ll have the choice between three different engines:

  • The standard 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 was designed for fuel efficiency. You’ll be able to travel an EPA-estimated 474 highway miles on just one tank of gas.
  • With the available 3.2L Pentastar® V6, you’ll be able to tow up to 4,500 pounds.
  • The available 2.0L Turbo engine produces 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.

Both of these vehicles come standard in front-wheel drive, but an all-wheel drive 4x4 system is available for those who want advanced traction and stability control for off-roading.

Interior Cabin Comfort

The Cherokee and Compass have plenty of room for your passengers and cargo. Here, we’ll look into how much you can expect to find in each SUV.

Both vehicles have room for up to five passengers. In the 2020 Compass, you’re going to get 100 cubic feet of passenger volume, while the 2020 Cherokee comes equipped with a slightly larger cabin, providing 128 cubic feet of passenger space.

In the Cherokee, you’ll get 25.8 cubic feet of storage space in the trunk when all the seats are upright, and up to 54.7 cubic feet of cargo space if you fold down the second-row seats. In the Compass, you’ll get a bit more storage volume, with 27.2 cubic feet in the trunk and 59.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume when the rear seats are down.

If you’d prefer more passenger room, then the Cherokee is going to be the right choice for you. Need more cargo volume? Then you might want to consider the Compass.
