Compass vs. Cherokee: Configurations & Pricing

When it comes to comparing the Jeep Cherokee vs the Jeep Compass on their pricing and trim levels, Grand Island drivers will find more options with the Jeep Cherokee, but they will save more with the Jeep Compass. 

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee begins at $25,840 MSRP* and tops at $38,195 MSRP*. If you’re including the special edition Jeep Cherokee configurations, the Cherokee comes with 10 trim levels to choose from. Each offers more capability and features than the last, with the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk® being the most capable in the lineup. With a literal fleet of options to choose from, the Jeep Cherokee is perfect for drivers who need their SUV to do a little bit of everything. 

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee begins at $22,280 MSRP* and ends at $31,145 MSRP*. With 7 trim levels to choose from, the Jeep Cherokee also has a fair amount of configurations for drivers. However, with only one engine option, the Jeep Compass is less capable than the Jeep Cherokee, which may be a deal-breaker for families that typically go off-roading. For Hastings drivers that are looking to save on their monthly payments with a capable vehicle that’s perfect for trips around town and the occasional off-road adventure, the Jeep Compass is a great choice.
