2021 JeepⓇ Compass

The 2021 Jeep Compass is a strong off-road vehicle with exciting technological offerings and a plenty of storage space. It is a great choice for families who want to add a little more adventure and excitement to their lives.

The Compass gets around on a 2.4-liter engine making 177 horsepower. Though all-wheel drive is available, most models use a front-wheel drive system. The Compass provides two rows of comfortable seats and plenty of storage space. The UConnect infotainment system supports features such as Apple and Android connectivity. An 8.4-inch touchscreen is available for greater utility. Like many vehicles in the Jeep lineup, there are plenty of active safety features available.

The Compass makes up to 31 highway miles per gallon in fuel economy. Yet whether in fuel efficiency or in off-road performance, Jeep is hardly content to rest on its laurels. As the brand works towards offering electrification across its lineup, it is the Compass, along with the Renegade and Wrangler, which are some of the first models expected to see electrified powertrains.

2021 JeepⓇ Cherokee

The Cherokee offers Charlotte-area families a vehicle that perfectly mixes hard work and a smooth ride. With a maximum towing capacity of 4500 pounds, Simpsonville families will enjoy a vehicle that can keep up with their adventurous lifestyles.

Though the base engine on the Cherokee is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder model, there are plenty of other options available. For example, drivers seeking the vehicle's maximum towing capacity will want to choose the 3.2-liter V6. There is also a two-liter engine which efficiently provides drivers with high horsepower and torque ratings.

Anderson families looking for serious adventure should check out the Cherokee Trailhawk, which has earned the automaker's Trail Rated badge for its strong off-road performance. With high levels of off-road traction and the ability to ford up to 19 inches of water, the Cherokee Trailhawk can help Greenville drivers go wherever life takes them.

Conclusion - Which Vehicle is Right for Your Family?

The Compass and the Cherokee are two popular, capable Jeep vehicles. Both five-seater SUVs boast lots of power, storage space and off-road capability. While each vehicle has its differences, either the Compass or the Cherokee would make a strong addition to Spartanburg family garages. And the best way for buyers to choose between the two models is to go down to a local Jeep dealer to test drive both vehicles for themselves.
