2019 Jeep Compass Performance Leading the way in the Jeep Compass is a 2.4L Tigershark® engine that’s equipped with MultiAir® 2 technology. With this engine, you’ll get 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque which gives you the capability to tow up to 2,000 pounds of trailer weight. You’ll also enjoy an efficient EPA-estimated 23 city/32 highway MPG.1

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee also offers this engine. However, in this model, you’ll be able to swap it out with three other engines for more power like the 3.2L Pentastar® V6 engine, which makes 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. With this kind of power, you’ll be able to tow up to 4,500 pounds.2

The powertrains of both models can be paired with one of several intuitive 4×4 drivetrains which makes off-roading and trekking through difficult weather a piece of cake.
