The new 2017 Jeep Compass isn’t too far away from its India launch. Prices of the cheapest Jeep SUV in India should start at a little north of Rs. 20 Lakh, which means the Compass will rival everything from the entry-level models of Ford Endeavour and Toyota Fortuner to models like the Hyundai Tucson and Volkswagen Tiguan. Regulars here would know we have already compared the Jeep Compass and the Toyota Fortuner. Now, on this page here, we compare the new 2017 Jeep Compass with the new generation of Ford Endeavour (aka Everest). So read on for our Jeep Compass vs Ford Endeavour comparison.
Regulars here are likely to know our fondness for the latest Endeavour. On comparison with the last generation model, the new Endeavour is a really huge improvement. On sale with a really competitive price tag, long features list, powerful engines and a cabin befitting of a car from half a segment higher, the new Endeavour has a lot going for it. While the Endeavour won’t become a direct rival to the Jeep Compass, it’s pretty much for sure that the entry-level 2.2-litre model will end up being in the same price territory as the Jeep Compass.
Jeep Compass vs Ford Endeavour Price Comparison
|Jeep Compass Price||Rs 20 Lakh to Rs 27 Lakh (Estimated)|
|Ford Endeavour Price||Rs 25 Lakh to Rs 31 Lakh (Ex-showroom)|
Like we said, the Compass and Endeavour won’t be direct rivals as it’s very likely that the base model Compass will be much cheaper than the base model of Endeavour. However, there’s a possibility of price overlap as the higher variants of the Compass might end up having prices similar to those of entry-level models of the Endeavour.
Jeep Compass vs Ford Endeavour Specifications Comparison
|Specifications||Jeep Compass||Ford Endeavour|
|Engine||1.4 L Petrol/2.0 L Multijet II Diesel||2.2 L Diesel/3.2 L Diesel|
|Max Power||160 BHP/170 BHP||158 BHP/197 BHP|
|Peak Torque||250 Nm/350 Nm||385 Nm/470 Nm|
|Transmission||6-speed Manual & 7-speed Automatic/6-speed Manual & 9-speed Automatic||6 Speed Manual & 6 Speed Automatic/6 Speed Manual & 6 Speed Automatic|
While the new Jeep Compass will offer a 1.4 L Petrol and a 2.0 Turbo Diesel motor, the Endeavour is available only with 2.2 L Turbo Diesel and 3.2 L Turbo Diesel engines. Hence, one advantage the Compass clearly has is the availability of a Petrol engine option. Secondly, the price positioning of the Compass will be such that it is likely to rival only the 2.2 L variants of the Endy. This means the more Endeavour, which comes with a stonker of a Diesel heart, won’t affect the Compass due to its much higher price tag. However, even on comparison of base Endy and Compass Diesel, the former has a clear advantage in terms of specifications. Real world performance might be closely matched thou, which will be because of the Jeep’s lower kerb weight.

Jeep Compass vs Ford Endeavour Mileage Comparison
|Mileage||Jeep Compass||Ford Endeavour|
|City||11 KMPL (Petrol), 15 KMPL (Diesel)||10 KMPL (2.2 Diesel), 8 KMPL (3.2 Diesel)|
|Highway||12 KMPL (Petrol), 18 KMPL (Diesel)||12 KMPL (2.2 Diesel), 13 KMPL (3.2 Diesel)|
Thanks to a lower kerb weight and smaller engines, the Compass enjoys a higher average mileage than the Ford Endeavour.
Jeep Compass vs Ford Endeavour Dimensions Comparison
|Dimensions||Jeep Compass||Ford Endeavour|
|Length||4420 mm||4,893 mm|
|Width||1820 mm||1,862 mm|
|Height||1650 mm||1,836 mm|
|Wheelbase||2640 mm||2,850 mm|
|Ground Clearance||178 mm||225 mm|
As is evident from this comparison here, the Endeavour is huge if you compare it with the Compass. No wonder then, that, the Compass ends up being smaller even on the inside. Also, compared to the 5 seats offered by the Compass, the Endeavour offers 7 seats. Also, its ground clearance of 225 mm is much more than the 178 mm offered by the Jeep Compass. The Endeavour enjoys a really very high road presence.
Jeep Compass vs Ford Endeavour Design Comparison
On comparison of the design of these two models, the difference between the two gets all the more apparent. While the Endeavour is a true blue SUV, the Compass is a lot more crossover-ish than a typical SUV. Thanks to a really butch exterior, the Endeavour enjoys a really high road presence. In comparison, the Compass looks a lot smaller but definitely has a sportier edge to it. That said, all thanks to a really powerful stance and a bold exterior, the Endeavour enjoys a great road presence.
Much of the same can be said about the interior. The interiors of these two SUVs are reflections of the exterior. Among these two, the Compass has a sportier-looking cabin. The Endeavour, on the other hand, uses clean surfaces and high quality materials to give you an impression of premium-ness. Equipment levels, in terms of comfort features, will be more or less the same for both the SUVs. However, one huge drawback for the Compass is that it offers just 5 seats. In comparison, the Endeavour can seat upto 7 passengers.
Jeep Compass vs Ford Endeavour Comparison Verdict
- Price: There are high chances that the Jeep Compass will be a lot cheaper than the Ford Endeavour. However, there is likely to exist a price overlap between the Compass and base model of the Endeavour.
- Specifications: There’s no petrol engine option on the Endeavour. Even the 2.2 L motor of the Endy is a lot more powerful than the 2.0 L unit in the Compass. However, performance difference should be negligible owing to lower kerb weight of the Jeep SUV.
- Mileage: The Compass has a clear advantage here.
- Dimensions: The Ford Endeavour is much larger.
- Design: While the Endeavour looks really butch and enjoys a high road presence, the Compass, with its crossover-ish look, has a sporty edge to it.
VERDICT: Of course, we always knew the two models here are poles apart in most areas. While the Jeep SUV here won’t lag behind in areas such as performance and should even offer a higher mileage, the Endeavour offers you a larger cabin and more seats. And then, there’s the high street presence the Endy enjoys. Even the base Endeavour offers a considerably long list of features, which means it should get tough for the Compass to justify the premium price tag. Well, prices of the Compass are yet to be announced and a clear picture will arise only after we have the official price list. But our guess is that the new Jeep Compass SUV just might not be able to substantially dent the sales of the Endeavour unless it gets an aggressive price tag.
