Performance Capabilities

Your engine is the heart of your SUV. Without it, you won’t be able to make it to the end of your driveway, let alone the destination of your next adventure. Jeep and Chevy know the importance of installing top-notch engines, so you can get from Point A to Point B as easy as possible. Let’s take a look at the engines offered with both SUVs.

2020 Jeep Compass vs Chevy Equinox: Off-Roading

Sometimes the best roads in life are the roads that aren’t actually there. Since heading off-road is an important aspect in exploring the world, both the Chevy Equinox and Jeep Compass have features—like all-wheel drive capability—to aid you in your adventures.

Although, when comparing the off-road capabilities of the Jeep Compass vs. Chevy Equinox, you’ll quickly see that the Compass excels in off-roading. That’s because the Compass comes with an optional Trail Rated® badge, something that’s not offered with the Equinox.

When your Compass wears the Trail Rated® badge, you know it’s been tested in several different off-road situations. In fact, in order to be given this badge, your Compass must shine in five categories: traction, water fording, maneuverability, articulation, and ground clearance.

With this badge, you know your Compass is ready to take on any challenge.

2020 Jeep Compass

Technology Features

Just because you may be traveling off the busy streets of Massachusetts, that doesn’t mean you can’t stay connected and entertained wherever you go. That’s why both the Jeep Compass and the Chevy Equinox come standard with an easy-to-view 7-inch center touchscreen display. You’ll also find that both vehicles come standard with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

While there are several similarities between the technology systems, one major difference is the available sound systems. You’ll find that both new SUVs come standard with six speakers, but when upgrading your sound system, your Equinox will have seven speakers. The Jeep Compass, on the other hand, when upgraded will have nine speakers.

Drivers who want a more surround and comprehensive sound system will get that with the Compass.

Jeep Compass vs Chevy Equinox: Which Will You Choose?
