2021 Jeep Compass vs Chevy Equinox

Your search for your next vehicle is going to start and end with Marburger CDJR. We want to do everything we can to help you break down the kind of SUV that you need in your life. That's why we are breaking down two of the top models in the automotive world to figure out which one better suits your needs. The first of these is the 2021 Jeep Compass, giving you traditional off-roading abilities that you've come to expect from Jeep, numerous packages and options, and a unique size that is not too large but definitely not too small. The second is the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox, which is mostly unchanged from the previous model year, giving you standard Apple CarPlay, active-safety systems, and a lack of real cargo space. Keep reading down below to figure out which of these two SUVs you should be driving home in.

2021 Jeep Compass Power & Handling

When you are trying to find the right vehicle for your life, it's important that you get something that you know you will be able to rely on. We can tell you with certainty that Jeep has created a great 2021 Compass. There is one standard engine here that you are getting, which is the always reliable 2.4-liter inline-4, which can create 175 pound-feet of torque and around 180 horsepower. A huge benefit of this engine is the fact that it comes with two major configurations. You'll be getting either FWD with a six-speed automatic transmission, or AWD with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Either way, there's a lot to love about what Jeep has done here for the Compass.

2021 Chevy Equinox Power & Handling

Just like the Compass, the 2021 Equinox only comes with one standard engine. This engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-4, which can produce 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. No matter what you'll be getting a six-speed automatic transmission, with no option for anything else. You can also choose between front- or all-wheel drive. We aren't as impressed with these configurations as we are with what you can get with the Compass.

2021 Jeep Compass Features & Design

While we understand the importance of power, especially in a vehicle that can be focused on your off-roading needs, that isn't all that the Compass gets you. Some of the standard features include a seven-inch touchscreen, roof rails, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable loadspace floor, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Some of the optional features include a navigation system, rain-sensing wipers, all-terrain tires, leather upholstery, heated front seats, rear parking sensors, a self-dimming rearview mirror, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

2021 Chevy Equinox Features & Design

The last thing we're looking at is what you'll be able to find when it comes to the features that the Equinox comes with. Some of the standard ones features Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, keyless open, push-button start, a seven-inch touchscreen, and 17-inch wheels. Other available features include a hands-free power liftgate, an eight-inch touchscreen, tinted windows, high-intensity headlights, dual-zone climate control, and an eight-way power driver's seat.
