How the Compass is Powered

This vehicle's base engine is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, which creates 141 lb-ft of torque and 158 horsepower. If you get this engine with the Sport trim then expect to have a standard five-speed manual transmission. However, if you get the 2.0-liter engine with the Latitude trim then you'll have the above-mentioned CVT, and this CVT acts like a traditional automatic. The CVT is available with a crawl mode that simulates the low-range gearing of a 4x4 vehicle. Front-wheel drive is standard with the 2.0-liter engine for this vehicle. A 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 165 lb-ft of torque and 172 horsepower comes standard with the vehicle's all-wheel drive models, and it is optional on the front-wheel drive ones. Up to 2,000 pounds worth of equipment may be towed behind the Compass when it is properly equipped. For fuel economy, you can expect to get up to 26 miles per gallon (mpg) highway, 22 mpg city and 24 mpg combined with the 2.0-liter engine.

Design of Jeep Compass

Two primary trim levels--Sport and Latitude--are available for the 2017 Jeep Compass. The Compass is considered to be a five-passenger compact crossover SUV by vehicle experts. The vehicle's Sport trim offers two appearance-related packages: the Sport SE and the 75th Anniversary Edition. If you purchase the Latitude trim, then you may get it in a High Altitude Edition if so desired. The Sport trim comes standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, cloth upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, satellite radio and a USB port. The Latitude will get you a height-adjustable driver's seat, reclining rear seatbacks, a 115-volt power outlet, chrome exterior accents and silver interior trim. If you elect to purchase this vehicle with four-wheel drive then that means you will get an All-Weather Capability Group that includes daytime running lights, all-season floor mats, tow hooks, and more!
