will my new Compass live up to my XJ

The last snow storm of the year dump 18 to 20" of snow and my XJ didn't have snow tires, but it plowed though like a champ. That Friday I went and bought my new 2016 Compass. I wonder how it would handle a snow plow? if you could put one on it. with snow tires on it and the traction control I bet it would do well.

I think it should be able to... worst case scenario get a set of chains on standby just in case?

My first plow as a old 65 international scout with a 152 4 cyl engine. I plowed with that till it rotted out from under neath me, and I pick up an 88 XJ, so I know that a 4 cylinder engine can do the job. It's not like I going out and put a plow on my Compass I just wondering if someone ever try it and how it did.

I actually can't find any Jeep Compasses with a snow plow attached. Kind of surprised as the engine should be able to handle it with a nice set of winter tires. Maybe I missed it, or it just isn't something that's commonly mounted to a Compass.

Far from common in my ends of the woods. Haven't seen one ever. Doubt I'll see one as well to be honest.
