Under the Hood of the Compass
Jeep will equip their all-new Compass with a fantastic 2.4-liter inline-4 engine, which is also known as the Tigershark. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, though it can alternatively be equipped with a six-speed automatic or nine-speed automatic depending on the chosen drivetrain. The drivetrains will include front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The configuration will work to produce 175 lb-ft of torque and 180 horsepower. When the Compass is properly equipped it has a 2,000-pound towing maximum. The optional trail-rated Trailhawk trim will be a perfect option for customers who want to go off-road, as it will equip 17-inch wheels, off-road-oriented tires, a unique front fascia, a raised suspension, and a unique Selec-Terrain system. It will also have underbody protection shields which will protect the gas tank and oil pan.
The redesigned Jeep Compass has four optional trim levels, called the Sport, latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk. The affordable compact crossover SUV will impress with its wide range of standard features and innovative technology. The entry-level trim, which is called the Sport, has Bluetooth connectivity, a Uconnect system with a 5-inch touchscreen display, and a six-speaker sound system. There are multiple USB ports so that passengers can easily keep their devices charged. One great aspect of the Compass is its interior seating configurations, which include a front passenger seat that can fold completely flat. This will make it easy to haul longer loads. The Latitude will come equipped with larger wheels, simulated leather seat upholstery, and the option to equip Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, and a nine-speaker Beats audio system. The excellent Limited model will have leather upholstery and the outstanding 8.5-inch Uconnect system. The Trailhawk trim will not only add the above mechanical features, but it will have a matte-black hood accent, red tow hooks for the front and rear, and unique Trailhawk badging.
