Searching for a new Jeep SUV? Whether you’re chauffeuring your family or you’re just looking for a personal vehicle with plenty of space, you can’t go wrong with Jeep. There are lots of great vehicles to consider, but today we’re going to zero in on the Jeep Cherokee vs. Compass. Which one will become your trusted Mount Union companion? Explore their interiors, performance specs, and more with Price Motor Sales below to find out!

Compass vs. Cherokee: Configurations & Pricing

The 2019 Jeep Compass starts at $21,845 MSRP and is available in seven trims: Sport, Latitude, Upland, Altitude, Limited, Trailhawk®, and High Altitude.

The 2019 Cherokee has a starting MSRP of $24,195 and is also available in seven trims: Latitude, Latitude Plus, Altitude, Trailhawk®, Limited, High Altitude, and Overland.

Your standard drivetrain for both models will be FWD, but if you’d like to have added capabilities during inclement weather on Altoona roads, you can upgrade to a Jeep 4×4 system. For example, Jeep Active Drive I is available with the Cherokee and Selec-Terrain® can be had with a new Compass.
