Jeep Compass vs Jeep Cherokee

2019 Jeep Compass
Jeep is a brand with a serious legacy—one that reaches all the way back to the 1940s, when it established the SUV class and became the vehicle that helped the Allies win the war. Since then, the Jeep brand has spread to civilian roadways as one of the most beloved brands in the business. Travel anywhere around Randolph, Stoughton, or Brockton, and you’ll see tons of Jeep crossovers all over the roads.

Two of the flagship vehicles in the lineup are the Compass and the Cherokee. Understandably, many drivers are curious as to which one of these reliable SUVs is the best for their personal needs. With that in mind, let’s put the Jeep Compass vs. Jeep Cherokee side by side, and see which one is the right crossover for you!

Jeep Compass vs Jeep Cherokee: Key Differences

2019 Jeep Compass BlackThe biggest difference between the Jeep Compass vs. Jeep Cherokee is size. Though both are small- to mid-size crossovers, the Cherokee is slightly larger than the Compass. Both, however, share the same spirit of adventure and fun, and both offer a great driving experience overall.

Thus, the most pronounced differences come in terms of performance and cargo space; which one you prioritize will determine which vehicle is the better option for you.

Performance Comparison

If you’re a driver who prioritizes engines and performance, you’ll probably want to look at the Jeep Cherokee. Both of these SUVs are driven by a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine at the base level. This engine, however, is tuned differently in each vehicle; both generate 180 horsepower, but in terms of torque, the Compass generates 175 lb-ft, while the Cherokee gives you 171 lb-ft.

2019 Jeep CompassThat’s just the base engine, however—the Cherokee really shines in its engine upgrades. These include a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, which gives you 270 horsepower with 295 lb-ft of torque, and a 3.2L V6 engine, which gives you 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque.

In real-world performance, this translates to the Jeep Compass having a maximum towing rating of 2,000 pounds, while the Cherokee has a maximum 4,500-pound towing capacity, when properly equipped. If you’re going to be towing trailers, a boat, or a flatbed, the Cherokee is a better choice.

Fuel Economy

The towing capabilities and power of the Cherokee come at a slight price. If you value fuel economy, you’re probably better off going with the Compass. The Compass offers an EPA-estimated 23 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway. By comparison, the Cherokee gets an EPA-estimated 22 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway. It’s a slight difference, but it can add up over time.

Cargo Space

If you’re going to haul equipment, gear, luggage, or groceries, the Compass is also a better option. The Cherokee, which is built to offer better performance, has an impressive 54.9 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, with 24.6 cubic feet behind the second row. The Compass, by comparison, is built to stow, with up to 59.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, and 27.2 cubic feet behind the second row of seats.
