Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Trailblazer offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Jeep Compass. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Trailblazer and the Jeep Compass.

Convenience
With the Jeep Compass, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Trailblazer, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Trailblazer will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Compass. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Trailblazer carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Compass.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Trailblazer is much slimmer than the Jeep Compass, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Trailblazer takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Compass.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Trailblazer doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jeep Compass.

Performance
The Chevrolet Trailblazer has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Compass.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Trailblazer and the Jeep Compass. The Chevrolet Trailblazer has less cargo space than the Jeep Compass, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Trailblazer comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Compass.
