2020 Jeep Compass Power & Handling

When it comes to power, Jeep understands what it takes to make sure that you get where you need to go with ease, especially if that includes the trails. That is why there is one standard engine that is in charge of getting the Compass to its destination. This engine is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder, which produces 175 pound-feet of torque and up to 180 horsepower. The three available transmissions here include a six-speed manual, a six-speed automatic, and a nine-speed automatic. Another fun aspect is the fact that you can choose either 2WD or 4WD, depending on which you need more!

In this case, the 2020 Escape does a lot to try to make up for the fact that four-wheel drive is not an option you can choose from. Only FWD and AWD are available, which makes this an SUV that should stay on the road, and never venture off the pavement. The base engine is a 1.5-liter inline-3, which produces 190 lb-ft of torque and around 181 horsepower. The other available gasoline engine is a 2.0-liter inline-4, which can crank out 280 lb-ft of torque and around 250 horsepower.
