2018 Jeep Compass - Excellent SUV!!

Hot Stamping and Laser Welding 00:00 Metrology and 34 Diagnostic Cameras 01:05 Interior Design and Suspension Capabilities 01:53 EPB, 7-Speed DDCT Automatic Transmission and DST 02:37 we recommend There are two versions of the 2017 Jeep Compass. Make sure to get the redesigned/new Compass and not the old one. It might be tricky to know the difference without seeing the vehicle in person because Jeep uses similar trim level names for both. But once you've decided on the new Compass, it's just a matter of the trim level and options. Although the Trailhawk trim level is neat, we think most buyers will find that the Latitude hits the sweet spot for content and value. It also gives you a lot of flexibility in choosing powertrain and option configurations. trim levels & features For the redesigned 2017 Compass, there are four trim levels. All come with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine (180 horsepower, 175 pound-feet of torque). Starting things out is the Sport trim. Equipped with cloth seats and 16-inch wheels, it's one of the more affordable compact crossover SUVs. The Latitude model adds larger 17-inch wheels, upgraded seating surfaces and access to some important driver assist systems. The Limited version is only available with all-wheel drive and adds more convenience- and luxury-oriented features. The Trailhawk is the trail-rated Compass and has unique features that optimize its off-road capabilities. READ LESS Although it's the entry-level trim, the Compass Sport can be equipped with the widest variety of drivetrains. It comes standard in front-wheel drive with a six-speed manual transmission. A six-speed automatic is available. The six-speed manual is standard in all-wheel-drive versions as well, but the optional automatic is a nine-speed. Standard equipment highlights include the smaller Uconnect system (with 5-inch touchscreen display), Bluetooth connectivity and a six-speaker sound system. Compared to the Sport, the Compass Latitude has larger wheels, upgraded cloth and simulated leather seat upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and more choices for option packages. The packages span the gamut from a tow package, advanced driver safety aids and a Cold Weather package. The Latitude keeps the same 5-inch Uconnect system and is available in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, just like the Sport. There is no manual-transmission FWD option, though. The Compass Limited is the most comprehensively equipped. Standout features include 18-inch wheels, upgraded exterior trim, a 8.5-inch Uconnect touchscreen (with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration), automatic dual-zone climate control, an upgraded driver information display, a power driver seat, heated front seats and leather upholstery. Unlike the Sport and Latitude, the Limited is only available with AWD and a nine-speed automatic. Though the Trailhawk sits below the Limited in price, it differs greatly in function and features. Only available in AWD with the nine-speed auto, it rides on 17-inch wheels with off-road-oriented tires, a raised suspension and a unique front fascia to maximize approach and breakover angles. Further mechanical changes include its own Selec-Terrain system to help it crawl over steep climbs and rocky surfaces. Red tow hooks front and rear and a matte-black hood accent further differentiate the Trailhawk from the rest of the Compass line, while a hidden set of underbody protection shields keep the engine, oil pan and gas tank from harm's way. trim tested Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our initial drive of the 2017 Jeep Compass Limited (2.4L inline-4 | 9-speed automatic | AWD). For our take on the older 2017 Jeep Compass, please see our review of the 2016 Compass. driving Jeep has dramatically improved the way the new Compass drives. It rides well on the road, with carlike steering and brake inputs, and has enough chassis stiffness and suspension control to handle curves and off-roading. comfort The Compass has a substantial feel to it, and that's a good thing. It more readily absorbs the kind of little bumps that most crossovers transmit straight to the driver. The seat cushions are firm, but there's plenty of head- and legroom. utility The 60/40-split rear seats fold down nearly flat, and the armrest bin and glovebox are well sized for your personal items. Door pockets can accommodate larger water bottles, and the cupholders do an effective job of keeping bottles and cups held firm. technology Three versions of Uconnect are available; our experience is with the largest 8.5-inch system with optional navigation. Graphics are crisp and the touchscreen is responsive. The menus are customizable, giving you the ability to make your most frequently used functions visible at all times.

2018 Jeep Compass - Review, Test drive and Walkaround

The new Jeep Compass wasn’t designed to look anything like the original Willy’s. Its design is streamlined and mature. It strongly resembles the much larger Jeep Grand Cherokee, which we find a good thing looking at how handsome that big SUV is! Actually, we’d suggest calling the Compass ‘Cherokee’. Jeep clearly wants to go into the direction of a unified style for their urban models. The new Compass features stylish swirling lines in in the LED tail lamps and headlights. The roofline is accented with the same shape of swirl in satin chrome, giving the new Compass a distinctly upscale look. The grill and wheel arches are directly copied from its bigger brother which makes the Compass look tough. And Jeep’s 4x4 system made sure that our brand-new Compass didn’t get stuck like our camera car did. Taking a seat in the Jeep Compass impressed us as much as the outside looks of it! Much attention has gone into the build quality and finish of the Jeep. After all the tiny gimmicks on the Jeep Renegade, of course we went on an instant exploration, looking for tiny jokes in the Compass. First, there is this lil’ lizard that apparently got stuck and painted over during production. We also found the Monster of Loch Ness swimming in the blue ocean of the sky when we looked through the rear window! We also think that this little rectangle in the trunk lid trim might be replaced by a button for a power rear liftgate, which our test model didn’t have. The first thing we were really curious about: what does a small Grand Cherokee drive like? Well, like a small Grand Cherokee, really! The Compass has an American smoothness to it, which we found fitting with the overall upscale looks of the crossover. It’s very different from the European feel of the Renegade. That is not to say things felt mushy, but driving the new Compass gives you a smooth, quiet ride even on rougher terrains while still holding corners well. Talking about smoothness, another highlight we noticed is the infotainment system of the Compass. When the iPad came out, people praised it for its smooth and almost instantaneously responding touchscreen. Car makers are starting to understand the importance of a butter smooth user experience with their infotainment systems, and the new touch display in the Compass really shows that off. What we really appreciate about the infotainment system in the Compass is that is still has physical buttons for often-used items like the climate control. They seamlessly work together with the modern digital user interface. Another thing that caught our eye, or more like, ear; is that the navigation voice mutes one speaker and speaks through that speaker only; while the rest of the speakers continue to play your favorite music. It works really well! Being slightly bigger than the Renegade and slightly smaller than the Cherokee, the new Jeep Compass is a rather compact crossover. So we put our 6 foot 8 presenter in it to see if it is of any use. The power adjustable front seats are comfortable and gave a surprising amount of legroom. But the real surprise was in the back of the car. It is a rare thing by itself that my knees did not hit the back of the front seat, but there were even a few inches between my knees and the front seat. The Compass furthermore features the versatility that you’d expect from a crossover, with folding rear seats providing up to 59.8 cubic feet of cargo space. Not that the standard 27.2 cubic feet of cargo room is bad, either. We really liked the fit & finish in the cabin, with accented stitching, piano black accents and very nice front bucket seats in optional leather trim. The wide dash spreads out like eagle wings. We liked luxuries like the tilting *and* telescoping steering wheel, adjustable headrests, the adjustable armrest in the front and the armrest with cupholders in the back, which Jeep made a part of the rear seatback. Furthermore, this new Compass is packed with technology like Apple Carplay and Android Auto. Siri can be activated directly from the steering wheel. More technology also translates to more safety, for example in the shape of a lane departure warning system, radars for oncoming traffic and a gazillion airbags. So, what is our conclusion? Well, we feel that with this new Compass, Jeep really turned their compass to the right direction. Hah! Yeah, we had to say that. The new Jeep Compass is a great compact alternative if you don’t want to buy the big Grand Cherokee. It’s got luxury, technology, great looks and comfort in a small package. All that it needs now, is a nice V6 to get it all moving.

2018 Jeep Compass | CarGurus Test Drive Review

Search new Jeep Compass listings: https://cargur.us/l_d2m Jeep re-designed and debuted a new Compass midway through the 2017 model year, and that vehicle returns with almost no changes for 2018. The expanded Compass lineup now ranges from the rugged, off-road-ready Trailhawk to the plush and well-mannered Limited. Falling size-wise between the typical subcompact and compact crossover, the new Compass combines the city-friendly size and wallet-friendly price of a subcompact with the cabin and cargo room of a compact and, at least in Trailhawk form, the ability to handle much tougher roads and terrain than competitors. All Compasses use a 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder that makes 180 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque, but it’s available with front- or 4-wheel drive, and the lineup includes 3 transmissions, a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed automatic, and a 9-speed automatic featured in all 4WD versions. The cabin is comfortable and roomy, and FCA’s Uconnect infotainment system consistently gets strong reviews and supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
