If you need an SUV designed to get the tough jobs done around the areas of Edgewood, Bel Air, and Aberdeen, MD, look no further than the 2020 Jeep Compass. While the Compass might be the smallest SUV of the Jeep lineup, it's capable of handling some hefty cargo.

To help you learn more about the 2020 Compass-and its towing capacity-our team at Thompson Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Harford County has created this review. After you're finished reading, feel free to call us with any questions.

Jeep Compass: Engine Options

While several factors go into the type of tow ratings you'll receive for a vehicle, its engine is one of the most important. When the Compass is equipped with the 2.4-liter Tigershark® engine-which is the brains behind the brawn-this impressive engine option allows this SUV to pump out 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque.

With such excellent power output, it should be no surprise this engine achieves the SUV's maximum towing capacity. With the 2.4-liter Tigershark® engine and the proper equipment, you'll receive a tow rating of 2,000 pounds. This is the ideal amount of strength for hauling lightly loaded cargo trailers, aluminum, boats, and even a small tent trailer for your weekend getaway.

Equipment & Accessories

Aside from its engine, the Jeep Compass offers a wide range of additional equipment and accessories that make achieving an incredible towing capacity possible. With the available Jeep Active Drive Low 4X4 System, you'll not only be able to increase your hauling capability, but this feature gives you the confidence you need to tackle a variety of obstacles, both on the roads and off.

Additionally, the available Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System makes towing in a variety of conditions a hassle-free experience. Whatever terrain you encounter, this system has a setting designed to help you conquer the challenge. You can choose from Auto, Snow, Sand, and Mud settings. You can also opt for the available Rock mode.

2020 Compass: A Cargo Champion

Aside from having the capability to haul some impressive weight behind the SUV, the Jeep Compass also offers tons of space inside the cabin for stowing your cargo. The Compass offers tons of room for up to five passengers to stretch out (exactly 100 cubic feet), plus an additional 27.2 cubic feet of cargo space.

Behind the second row, you'll find the most room suited for luggage, groceries, and more. However, if you don't need the second row for seating, you can expand your cargo space by folding down the rear seats. This creates a maximum cargo volume of 59.8 cubic feet-ideal for larger cargo that doesn't fit in your trailer.
