The 2018 Jeep® Compass embodies efficient performance, off-roading functionality and interior practicality at an affordable price point.
The 2018 Jeep® Compass is a great option for those desiring an eco-friendly compact SUV. No matter which of the four available trims you pick, the Compass comes outfitted with a 2.4-liter engine paired with your choice of either a six-speed manual or nine-speed automatic transmission, providing up to 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. For minimal carbon footprint, opt for the Sport trim, which yields 32 miles per gallon on the highway when equipped with front-wheel drive.*
Frequent off-roaders will want to choose the 4x4 configuration. This version dominates a variety of terrains with Jeep® Active Drive Low 4x4 System and Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System. The Trailhawk® trim incarnates the model’s top-of-the-line off-roading capacity. Conquer flooded roads and shallow streams with ease thanks to the model’s high air intake, enhanced body sealing, and insulated electrical connections. A ground clearance of 8.5 inches results in a 30.3-degree approach angle and 33.6-degree departure angle, so you can overcome rocks and logs impeding the trail. The SUV also boasts precision steering paired with a tight turning diameter (35.3 feet), so you can deftly weave through cramped woods and narrow spaces.
Spacious and high-tech cabin
The Compass offers adaptable roominess as well as the latest technology features. Fold the rear seat flat to access 59.8 cubic feet of cargo volume. An adjustable cargo floor enables you to modify the capacity of the trunk space to suit the dimensions of the items you’re bringing along. 60/40 rear seats expand organization options, while an available power liftgate makes loading and unloading the vehicle simpler. Choose the Trailhawk® or higher trim to enjoy perks such as Uconnect® 4C NAV with an easily readable 8.4-inch display, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. SiriusXM® Satellite Radio with one-year radio subscription also comes standard on the top two trim levels.
If you’re in the market for a new compact SUV to match your agile, sensible lifestyle, look no further than the 2018 Jeep® Compass.
