New JEEP 2021 Jeep Compass vs Ford Bronco Sport Westminster MD for Sale in Westminster, MD
2021 Jeep Compass vs Ford Bronco Sport
For the longest time, Jeep and Ford have gone back and forth to gain the upper hand on one another. This year, things get taken up a notch as Ford has released the Bronco Sport, a powerful and off-road capable SUV with all the latest technology. While the Bronco Sport is undeniably impressive, it will have a long way to go if it wants to catch up with the Compass. The Compass comes with a wonderful 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, optional all-wheel-drive, and a Trialhawk trim that provides off-road adventurers with underbody skid plates, all-terrain tires, and a lifted suspension. There is a lot to love about both of these SUVs, but only one stands alone. Continue reading to find out which one comes out on top!
2021 Jeep Compass Power & Handling
No matter what trim of the Jeep Compass you go with, it will come with the same wonderful four-cylinder engine. It’s a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that comes with a stark 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel-drive comes standard, with all-wheel-drive being an available option on every trim not named the Trailhawk where it comes standard. The kind of transmission you get will depend on whether you go with either the front or all-wheel-drive. If you decide on front-wheel-drive, the Compass will have a six-speed automatic transmission, while the all-wheel-drive has a nine-speed automatic. There is a lot to love about the kind of power that the Compass provides!
2021 Ford Bronco Sport Power & Handling
Two engines are available for the Ford Bronco Sport. The first is a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 181 horsepower and comes standard with all-wheel-drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Optional is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that also pairs with an eight-speed automatic and is available for the Badlands and First Edition. You also get an off-road-oriented all-wheel-drive system. While we feel there is a lot of power to be had with the Ford Bronco Sport, we wish that there were more transmission options.
2021 Jeep Compass Features & Design
There are four trims available for the Jeep Compass, and each one comes with a spectacular amount of available features that should please any driver. The base trim is the Sport, and it is well equipped with features such as automatic dual-zone climate control, steel wheels, a 7-inch touchscreen with USB ports, a six-speaker sound system, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Latitude adds to this with alloy wheels, roof rails, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless entry and ignition, automatic headlights, and foglights. In the mood for luxury? The Limited has you covered with a remote engine start, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel. For those extreme off-roaders, the Trailhawk trim delivers off-road-oriented tires, a raised suspension, underbody skid plates, and tow hooks. Go anywhere and do anything with the Jeep Compass!
2021 Ford Bronco Sport Features & Design
Throughout the Ford Bronco Sports lineup, you will find a ton of tech. All trims come with an eight-speed automatic transmission and the latest version of the Ford Sync system, which comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In addition, available is the latest version of the Ford Co-Pilot360 system, which comes with many available safety features such as forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, a blind-spot monitor, and lane-keeping assist. Looking to go off-road? A few systems are available to assist you in your journey, including traction controls, extra powertrain coolers, some unique suspension upgrades, and all-terrain tires.
