2017 Jeep Compass
For the 2017 model year, Jeep has introduced an all-new Jeep Compass to replace the current model. It features all of the latest technology, comforts, and performance that you’ve come to love and expect from Jeep. Depending on what kind of Compass you’re looking for, you’ll be able to choose between four different types; Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk, or Limited. So get ready to wonder off the paved roads and into a new adventure with the 2017 Jeep Compass.
When you’re ready to give one a test drive, just give us a call here in Forest Lake, MN and we’ll set you up as soon as they hit markets in Spring 2017. Almost all of our vehicles here come included with a Lifetime Powertrain Warranty, which will keep your new Jeep in great shape for as long as you own it. There are many great places to go off-roading around Minnesota, so a new Compass might be what you’re looking for here in the mid-west. Our dealership is just a short trip away from Coon Rapids, Roseville, and White Bear Lake, so visit us today.
Whether you’re a daily driver who’s interested in getting into some weekend off-roading, or a true off-road enthusiast who needs their car to get them efficiently to work as well, the 2017 Jeep Compass has something special for you. Available in four different trims; Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk, or Limited. They each vary in features and driving capabilities, as well as price. The standard base model starts out at just $20,995, while a fully loaded Limited model will cost you $34,660. For the best off road model, you’ll want to go with the Trailhawk, which has extra traction control, rock crawling capabilities, and a bit more height off the ground.
Overall the 2017 Jeep Compass is a great SUV for a decent amount of off roading, while continuing to be a versatile on-road vehicle as well. From the minute you set your eyes on the Compass, you can immediately tell it’s a Jeep. The smooth Jeep style continues on into the interior, with sculpted cloth or leather seating for up to five people. The cargo area can be arranged in many different ways to a wide array of things you might want to take with you on your trip. Also inside are many connection options, from front and rear USB plugs, to the option of a 9 speaker BeatsAudio sound system.
This rugged SUV is made for all types of weather and terrain conditions, which is ideal for us up here in the northern midwest. Auto, Snow, Sand, and Mud driving modes are built right into the car so you can switch between different driving conditions at the flick of a switch. The Trailhawk version also comes with an additional Rock mode for even more off-road versatility.

The Compass is loaded with features designed to get you safely to your next adventure. Inside is a ParkView rear back up camera that will help you know exactly what’s behind you whether you’re getting out of a tight off-road trail or simply backing into a parking spot. The Uconnect media system connected to the standard six, or available nine, speakers will keep you entertained on all of your journeys. Outside the car you get head lights which will automatically adjust to the level of light outside. Standard skid plates paired with a raised ride height are ready and waiting for you to take them on some muddy trails. Tow hooks on the front and back of the SUV are also added to make this a true Jeep.
Under the hood, a 2.4 liter four-cylinder engine is features and you can choose between automatic or manual, front wheel drive or all wheel drive, and either a six or nine speed transmission. Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low are what makes this vehicle a great off-roading tool. The latter of the two is available on the Trailhawk version and offers the best wheel traction. This Jeep is also loaded with many standard safety features including seven airbags and a high strength steel frame. Electronic roll mitigation and stability control are also standard safety features.
In the American market, the 2017 Jeep Compass is available with one engine and three transmissions. The engine is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder with 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. You can choose between a 6 speed manual or automatic, or a 9 speed automatic. The Compass is available with FWD or AWD. All AWD models come with Auto, Snow, Sand, and Mud driving modes. These different modes can really help you fine tune the performance of your vehicle.
The all new 2017 Jeep Compass is not only high performing off-road SUV, but also a great on-road vehicle as well. With up to 32 mpg on the highway, the Compass exceeds the fuel efficiency of the Toyota Rav4.. The level of off-roading you want to do might highly sway your decision on which trim to go with. The Sport, Latitude, and Limited Editions come with a suspension tuned really well for mostly on-road driving, with the occasional off-roading trip. If you’re looking for the best off-roading trim, you’ll want to spring for the Trailhawk, which will can easily be used equally for on-roading as it can for off.
The Trailhawk gets two more modes of traction control along with suspension that sits about an inch higher with 8.4 inches of clearance (0.3 inch more than the other AWD Compass models.) Its Active Drive Low 4×4 range can be activated with one push of a button. This keeps your Jeep in the first gear and gives it a nice 20:1 crawling ratio. The Trailhawk also has an impressive 30.3-degree approach angle and 33.6-degree departure angle to get you easily up and down some steep hills. This model also gets an additional Rock driving mode in addition to snow, mud, etc.

It’s not always easy to find the perfect temperature for everyone in the car, but with available Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control it will be much easier.
