A lot of Compasses will be bought with front-wheel drive, however it wouldn’t be a Jeep unless it could deal with off-road tracks.

Otherwise, we believe most buyers will find that the Latitude strikes the sweet spot for content and worth. It likewise provides you a great deal of versatility in picking powertrain and alternative setups.
