CAPABILITY
Jeep Compass

Adventures come in all shapes and sizes. And yours specifically? The Jeep Compass will handle it with ease. With the help of a dynamic powertrain, standard 4-wheel drive, and tried-and-true Trail Rated® testing, the Compass will lead you confidently through the great outdoors.

Pure Strength

Powering your next journey is the Compass’ 2.0L turbo engine, which packs a punch at 200 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. It’s paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and 4-wheel drive to deliver ride quality as great as the landscape you plan to traverse.

Do you plan to spend time on the water or a few nights under the stars? The Compass can tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped, meaning you can bring any of these toys along for the ride:

  • A utility trailer
  • A pop-up tent camper
  • A small aluminum boat
  • A jet ski
  • A motorcycle and more!

The sky is the limit when you choose the Jeep Compass.

Tried-and-True Greatness

The Jeep Compass Trailhawk is as epic as its name sounds. As the most capable Compass in the lineup, it’s a no-brainer that it wears the Trail Rated® badge well. This badge is a high honor and proves Jeep’s dedication to quality adventure, fortified by these key components:

  • Traction
  • Water Fording
  • Maneuverability
  • Articulation
  • Ground Clearance

Whether your travels bring you to sandy shores, snowy streets, or tough trails, the Jeep’s standard Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System will help you adapt on the fly. This on- and off-road tool comes with four modes—Rock, Sand/Mud, Snow, and Auto—that optimize the Compass for precision control in various driving conditions.

INTERIOR
Jeep Compass

The exterior and powertrain of the Jeep Compass fortify its outdoorsy reputation. The interior juxtaposes it with its neat, ergonomic layout, premium amenities, and space dedicated to fellow explorers and necessary cargo.

Driver-Focused Comfort

The Jeep Compass is a masterpiece on the move. It serves dual purposes: a terrain tackler by day and a lavish vessel by night. You’ll feel comfortable inside the Compass even on the bumpiest of trails thanks to the standard heated front seats. If you’ve accidentally left your gloves at home, the Jeep’s available heated steering wheel will ensure your digits are toasty.

After a long day of hiking or biking, you’ll want breathing room on the ride home. With up to 100 cubic feet of passenger space to share, every appointment in the cabin will be the best seat in the house.

Pack Like a Pro

Do you have a camping trip coming up? Are you all packed? If you said yes, you know what’s next—it’s time to pack up the car. Dun dun dun! This step is many adventurers' least favorite part, but it’s an easy process with the Jeep Compass. Starting with available Remote Vehicle Start. Push a button on the key fob to open the power liftgate automatically. No need to put down what you’re carrying!

Once it’s opened, you’ll find 27.2 cubic feet of trunk space. That’s plenty of room for a cooler, tent, firewood bundles, and sleeping bags. If you bring along fishing poles or portable sun shelters, you can lower the second-row seats, boosting your cargo space to 59.8 cubic feet!

TECHNOLOGY
Jeep Compass

The road to adventure may be long, and the Jeep Compass has just what you need to stay entertained and protected mile after mile. With its built-in driver-assistance aids and driver-centric cockpit, you can enjoy the whole journey from start to finish.

Front-Row Ticket Entertainment

The Uconnect® 5 infotainment system will be your digital copilot in the Compass. It uses a 10.1-inch touchscreen as its entertainment hub and an available 10.25-inch digital cluster for vehicle vitals. The main display will provide access to maps, your favorite apps, and your preferred music-streaming service when you pair your phone via wireless Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™.

The available Alpine® Premium Audio System has nine speakers and an 8-inch subwoofer to take your listening experience to the next level. You’ll never miss a syllable of your audiobook, a sliver of your podcast, or a symphony in your playlist.

When you’re ready to return to civilization, you can pair your phone to the infotainment suite and charge it up after a night of camping on the available wireless charging pad!

Advanced Protection

On top of in-car technology, you’ll have several standard and available safety features to keep your Compass on course, including:

  • Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking
  • Blind Spot Warning with Rear Cross Path Detection
  • Active Lane Management
  • Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection with Automatic Braking

Drowsy Driver Detection is also available. This feature tracks vehicle movement and driver interaction for any patterns that indicate drowsy or distracted driving. If detected, it will send audible and visual alerts to get your attention and suggest you take a break. Coffee, anyone?

Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go is another available feature that adapts to the flow of traffic and maintains a preselected distance from the car ahead.
