Under the Compass's Hood

The 2017 Compass has been redesigned from the inside and out, with Jeep striving to maximize efficiency, utility, and power for different driving environments. The standard engine in the Compass is a 2.4-Liter I4 MultiAir Engine. It works with an Engine Stop Start system, which maximizes fuel economy when the vehicle is stopped. All trims except the base Sport trim come standard with four-wheel drive, although four-wheel drive is available with the Sport. The engine pairs with a nine-speed automatic transmission on models with four-wheel drive or a six-speed manual transmission on models with front-wheel drive. A six-speed automatic is also available with the front-wheel drive models for added convenience. If you like extreme off-roading, the Trailhawk trim is your best choice. It has a raised body, skid plates, underbody guards, and a 20:1 crawl ratio for steep inclines.

Design of Jeep Compass

At first glance, the 2017 Compass looks like a diminutive version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, with its iconic seven-slot grille and sleek design. The interior has been thoughtfully designed to maximize interior space and improve the comfort of the ride. There are convenient storage bins all over the cabin, including a variable-level rear cargo floor and a front passenger footwell with a mesh pocket. The front control system on the dash is easy to reach, and the steering wheel has integrated controls for speed, voice and audio, minimizing driver distraction. One of the more exciting changes to the Compass is the addition of the 8.4 Uconnect system. This system has been upgraded with a more vivid display and a faster response time. The touchscreen displays navigation, entertainment, and communication features. Furthermore, the Uconnect system has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration. The 2017 Compass comes in four trim levels: Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk. Features vary depending on the model and range from classic features like power windows/locks to the more luxurious features like heated seats and leather upholstery. Several packages are available for tailoring your Compass. There is a navigation package, a cold weather package, a safety and security package, and more. The Compass seats a total of five passengers and has a roomy 60 cubic feet of rear cargo space when the seats are folded down.
