Three Jeeps to Consider When Shopping for an Compact SUV or Crossover

A look at the Jeep Renegade, Jeep Compass, and Jeep Cherokee

The crossover/SUV segment is quickly becoming America’s favorite segment of vehicles. They offer superior versatility and plenty of options that seem to bridge the gap between capability and usability. Not everyone needs the performance and cargo space of a Grand Cherokee, and not everyone is comfortable driving around in a sedan. Thankfully, Jeep offers small and compact SUVs that offer exceptional versatility and best-in-class 4×4 performance.


Jeep Renegade

The Jeep Renegade is the most capable compact utility ehicles in its class. Jeep managed to find a great balance of style and versatility when they designed the Jeep Renegade. Base models come standard with front-wheel drive, but all can be equipped with a 4×4 drive train. The Trailhawk and Deserthawk both come standard with 4×4. The Sport, Latitude, and Altitude come standard with a 1.4-liter I4 MultiAir Turbo Engine that delivers 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. An optional 2.4-liter I4 MultiAir Engine is available on these trim levels that produces 180 horsepower with 175 lb-ft of torque


Jeep Compass

The Jeep Compass will come standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 180 horsepower and 175 ft-lb of torque. Front-wheel drive will be standard on the Compass with all-wheel drive as an option. The Jeep Compass is smaller than the Cherokee, but larger and more capable than the Renegade. This new 2018 Jeep Compass will offer consumers a unique and affordable option when shopping for that perfect SUV or crossover.

The 2018 Compass will offer four trim levels the Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk. All trims will come standard in front-wheel drive except the Trailhawk, which is equipped with AWD and an upgraded suspension package.
