If you’ve ever looked at the Jeep Compass, you may have wondered why Jeep would even consider continuing the line. To be honest, the previous Jeep Compass model was okay, but it wasn’t really that special on the list of top, small, crossover, sport-utility vehicles. Sure, it had a few benefits and, for some, it was the best choice; however, this year’s model takes what was just okay and turns it into something incredible!
At Bloomington Jeep, we’re expecting these new alterations to propel the Compass to be held in the highest regard for small crossovers.
When it comes to space, the new Compass is a nice size. It’s situated somewhere between a Renegade and a Cherokee, meaning it has more passenger and cargo space, without sacrificing luxury or comfort. This is true for both storage space in the trunk and passenger space as well.
Power Under the Hood
With a 2.4-liter I-4 that rocks out 180 horsepower and 175 ft-lb of torque, not to mention a Renegade powertrain, there’s no denying this new Jeep is a beast. The 4×4 version comes with a 9-speed automatic transmission for smoother transitions and shifts, letting you breeze down the highway or cruise the city with ease. Whether you want to shuttle the kids to soccer practice or take an off-road camping trip, the new Jeep Compass is the way to go.
Compact SUV Benefits
If the name “Jeep” makes you think of a Renegade off-road vehicle that rides rough and offers no thought to passenger comfort, we’re happy to tell you that you’re wrong (at least this time). It’s time to re-think the compact SUV 2017 Jeep Compass.
This year’s model comes with interior and exterior styling for a sleeker and more elegant look. Advanced interior comfort and technology bring the Jeep into the future, while the great gas mileage makes it easy to feel good about driving anywhere you’re headed.
As always, you also gain the reassurance that comes with driving under the Jeep name. Jeep has long been known for rugged vehicles that can take on any terrain, and this new Compass is no exception.
The new Compass is available in 4 new trim levels: Sport, Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk. The Latitude is the level that most consumers prefer. It’s ideal for those who need a daily vehicle that’s both affordable and offers the ability to go off-road when necessary.
Plan on spending more time off-road than on? The Trailhawk is your trim choice. This trim level is better suited for rough riding, though you may lose a small amount of line speed in the process.
Both the Sport and Latitude offer their own unique benefits. Latitude will set you back a few more dollars, but it comes with all the elite sport features, including a leather-wrapped wheel and heated front seats. The Sport is more basic and, thus, will allow you to maximize your budget with less flash.
