Power Ranked 2012 Jeep Compass Latitude 4WD worse.
"Caliber felt like a lighter vehicle that was easier for the small 4-cylinder engine to handle."
Family Car Ranked 2012 Jeep Compass Latitude 4WD worse.
"Overall, my Caliber was a very honest, very reliable, very economical, and very unpretentious vehicle. It never left me wishing I had FWD under regular driving conditions and, on the few occasions I drove it on unpaved roads or other mild off-road conditions it performed capably. Even though it was the base model it met every need I had for a durable, comfortable, economical daily driver."
