Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Jeep Compass receives several minor updates this year. The majority of the changes include newly available features for the cheapest Compass—the base Sport model. It can now be ordered with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and more with the Safety and Security package. Likewise, the Advanced Safety package unlocks even more desirable content such as adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beams, forward-collision warning, a leather steering wheel, and more.

Pros
Truly capable off-road, copious technology options, handsome Jeep styling.

Cons
Clumsy automatic transmission, easily becomes overpriced, just get a Jeep Cherokee.

The 2020 Jeep Compass comes with front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic, 6-speed manual.Minor revisions to feature availability.

PROS
Roomy seating for such a small vehicle
Tech interface is attractive and easy to use
Trailhawk version is highly capable off-road

CONS
Four-cylinder engine's weak power delivery
Limited cargo space
Nine-speed transmission's sluggish response

The 2019 Jeep Compass stays true to the brand’s off-road formula, but bends toward usability rather than capability.

Pros
Handsome exterior
Generous, standard 7.0-inch touchscreen
Rugged Trailhawk option
Good customization options
Respectable fuel economy, for now

Cons
Indecisive 9-speed automatic
Active safety features a spend-up option
Mixed crash-test scores
Three will fit in the back in a pinch, literally

Pros

Modern onboard technology keeps you connected

Cons
Cabin isn't particularly luxurious, even in the priciest trim level
Some rival SUVs offer more cargo and third-row space
Lackluster base engine

GMC has made a few packaging changes to the Acadia for 2021. The Pro Safety Plus package, which includes several driver-assistance features, is now standard on SLT, AT4, and Denali. An Elevation Edition package is now available on the SLE and SLT and includes 20-inch wheels and black exterior accents. A heated steering wheel joins the Premium package for SLT and AT4 trims. .

Pros
Square-jawed styling,
intuitive infotainment interface,
cargo-friendly interior.

Cons
Costs more than interior materials suggest,
tight third-row passenger space,
mediocre fuel economy.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2020 GMC Acadia’s expanded lineup and new styling look worth the wait.

Pros
Good looks
Infotainment upgrades worthwhile
Intriguing new turbo-4

Cons
Active safety tech should be standard
A little narrow inside
Push-button shifters not our favorite
