At Sansone Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM, we carry a wide range of Jeep models in Avenel, NJ. However, out of all the Jeep vehicles at our dealership, the two most contested models are the Jeep Cherokee and the Jeep Compass.

The 2019 Jeep Compass and the 2019 Jeep Cherokee are a pair of rugged crossover SUVs that are equally impressive. On the outside, the two Jeep vehicles are quite similar. The new Cherokee is a little larger with nine extra inches of length; it is also 1.6 inches taller. While these two compact SUVs may appear similar on the outside, they truly begin to differ once you dig a little deeper.

The Jeep Cherokee comes standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that’s worth 180 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. There are two additional powertrains available, one of which is the 3.2-liter V6 that gives this Jeep SUV a max 4,500-lb towing capacity.

The Jeep Compass boasts a standard 2.4-liter I-4, which is capable of a noteworthy 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. This is the only engine offered in the 2019 Compass, and it offers up a max 2,000-lb towing threshold.

When it comes to off-road prowess, the Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Compass offer similar capabilities. The 2019 Cherokee boasts three different 4×4 systems, and the Cherokee two.

Comparing these two Jeep SUVs can be something of a challenge due to their several similarities, however, when its all said and done, it truly comes down to what you prefer as a Jeep driver.
