2017 Jeep Compass Vs. 2017 Chevrolet Equinox

If you’re in the market for a smaller SUV, you may have considered the 2017 Jeep Compass and 2017 Chevrolet Equinox, since both are streamline, comfortable rides with sporty exterior designs. For our comparison, we at Dave Warren Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram will pit the 2017 Jeep Compass Limited against the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox Premiere since both share similar trims. However, it should be noted the Jeep Compass Limited has a substantially lower starting price.

Performance Comparison

When it comes to power and handling, the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox Premiere is equipped with a 2.4-liter DOHC SIDI 4-cylinder engine matched with a 6-speed automatic transmission. This combination produces 182 horsepower, 172 lb.-ft. of torque and allows towing of up to 1,500 pounds. Under the hood of the 2017 Jeep Compass Limited is the popular 2.4-liter Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine that’s paired with a Class-Exclusive 9-speed automatic transmission, delivering a nearly identical 180 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque. But when it comes to trailer load, the Jeep Compass with 9-speed automatic allows for towing up to 2,000 pounds, ideal for a small boat or camper trailer near Erie, PA or near Olean, NY. Plus, with standard 4×4 performance you’ll appreciate the off-road capability of the 2017 Jeep Compass Limited with the available Selec-Terrain® traction control system.

Interior Comparison

In the cabin of both the Chevrolet Equinox Premiere and Jeep Compass Limited you’ll find leather-trimmed, heated bucket seats, power 8-way driver’s seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, 6-speaker audio system, dual-zone automatic temperature control and rear back up camera. However, the Compass Limited includes a heated steering wheel and available CommandView® panoramic sunroof. Where the Equinox Premiere has Chevrolet MyLink® connectivity, the Jeep Compass Limited is equipped with Uconnect® 4 with an 8.4-inch display or available Uconnect® 4C NAV. Test drive a 2017 Jeep Compass for sale in Jamestown, NY, at Dave Warren Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and see why this fun, affordable and surprisingly comfortable SUV needs to be parked in your driveway!
