With much excitement, Jeep has recently revealed the all-new 2017 Jeep Compass. The new Compass is set to be the most capable compact SUV on the market with incredible 4×4 capability, fuel-efficient powertrain options and a premium look. Until the release of the all-new 2017 Jeep Compass in Spring 2017, Jeep will continue to offer the present-day Compass for those looking for a compact SUV – likely at some killer discounts. For those that can wait, the all-new Compass will be a stellar addition to the Jeep lineup. Check it out.
4×4 Systems and Off-Road
Sticking to the Jeep legacy, the new Jeep Compass will offer best-in-class 4×4 capability among compact SUVs. It will be available with two intelligent 4×4 systems: Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low. The latter being a full-time 4×4 system with a 20:1 crawl ratio. Both of these available modes include Jeep’s Selec-Terrain system that allows you to select modes based on the type of terrain that you’re traversing. You’ll be able to leave the system on Auto, or select from Snow, Sand, Mud, or Rock (Trailhawk only) options for maximum on- or off-road performance.
- Snow (Hello Minnesota)
- Rock (Trailhawk Only)
For those that want the best off-road performance from their new 2017 Jeep Compass, opt for the new Compass Trailhawk. The Trailhawk comes equipped with the Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 system, Select-Terrain with Rock mode, a lift kit, skid plates, red tow hooks, special Trailhawk from and rear fascias, more aggressive off-road tires and more.
Engine and Transmission
The engine found in the 2017 Jeep Compass has been tested for years in the current Jeep lineup. It’s the proven, 2.4-liter Tigershark 4-cylinder engine. It puts out a balanced 180 horspower and 175 lb-ft of torque for a smooth ride and a peppy pedal. Properly equipped, this engine will travel the 2017 Compass at up to 30 mpg.
- 2.4 Liter 4-Cylinder Engine
- 180 horsepower
- 175 lb-ft of torque
- 30 mpg
- Available 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic, and 9-speed automatic transmissions
There’s really no arguing that the new Compass is stunning. It features exterior design details from SUVs that cost 3-times as much. The styling is aggressive, but not overly so. The Compass features several design cues that reflect on the Jeep brand – the most notable being the classic 7-slot grille. The hood and roofline are dramatic and muscular. For those looking for an extra premium look, opt for the Gloss Black painted roof. A dual-pane sunroof is also available.
The new Compass boasts a truly premium interior with finely sculpted curves, details, and perfectly paired materials. The center stack follows Jeep’s legendary design language and boasts the 8.4-inch infotainment system on well-equipped models. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto systems are available on the new Compass. Smaller infotainment systems are also available. For the driver, the compass is available with either a 3.5- or 7-inch driver information display cluster and steering wheel controls. Storage is aplenty for those that need to haul or those that are looking for an escape. You’ll get all of your luggage and camping gear into the 2017 Jeep Compass with ease.
Protecting yourself and your passengers was a huge priority for Jeep when designing the new 2017 Jeep Compass. The Compass features over 70 available active and passive safety and security features to prevent collisions and protect the cabin in the event of a collision. The Compass is available with Forward Collision Warning-Plus, LaneSense Departure Warning-Plus, Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, ParkView rear backup camera with dynamic grid lines, electronic stability control, 7 standard air bags and more.
