2021 Ford Bronco Sport vs. 2020 Jeep Compass Trailhawk: Compare Crossover SUVs

The Bronco is not the only Ford hungry to take a bite out of Jeep’s off-road dominance. The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport squares off against the 2020 Jeep Compass Trailhawk in a battle of compact crossover SUVs that seat up to five and promise to be comfy on the streets but loaded with off-road treats. 

Though the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is born of the Ford Escape with shared powertrains and technology, it has been raised and influenced by the 2021 Ford Bronco to have bona fide off-road capability. The Jeep family tells a similar story with the Trailhawk model, which aspires to be like the Wrangler even though it’s based on the Jeep Compass, which is a common compact crossover with little to no-off road ambition.

The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.5
5.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport carves out a new all-terrain niche for one of the most beloved off-road names in auto history. The 2020 Jeep Compass is smartly sized and priced but lacks in key areas like safety and efficiency.
