Towing Battle: 2021 Jeep Compass vs 2021 Honda CR-V in Chilliwack, BC

May 24,2022

While most compact SUVs are not well-known for their towing capabilities, the new 2021 Jeep Compass shakes things up quite a bit. Compared to the 2021 Honda CR-V, you can quickly see just how much better this vehicle is for pulling.   Every Compass is powered by a 2.4-litre 4-cylinder engine that delivers 180 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. If you stick with the standard FWD system, it will come with a 6-speed automatic transmission. However, if you opt for the available AWD, it will use a 9-speed.   On the other hand, the 2021 Honda CR-V is fitted with an Inline-4 motor that is partnered with FWD and a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Pushing out 190 hp and 179 lb-ft of torque, you might think that it is stronger than the Compass.   Surprisingly, the Compass can handle up to 907 kg (2,000 lbs) of weight. Meanwhile, the CR-V can only manage 680 kg (1,500 lbs). So, if you want to haul an attachment, go with the Jeep!   For more information, contact our team today.
