Looking for a new Jeep? Whether you’re looking for a spacious commuter or a family-friendly vehicle for trips around Oklahoma City, many SUVs in the brand’s lineup make the grade. Many often find themselves comparing Jeep Cherokee vs. Compass, though. Which one will you choose for Mustang roads? Here, Westpointe Chrysler Jeep Dodge explores their interiors, performance specs, and more.

Compass vs. Cherokee: Configurations & Pricing

The new Jeep Compass for sale 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.

FWD is the standard drivetrain for both models, but if you’re looking for added capabilities to assist you during inclement weather on El Reno roads, you can always consider upgrading to a Jeep 4×4 system. For example, Jeep Active Drive I is available with the new Cherokee and Selec-Terrain® is an option with a new Compass.
