What’s new for the 2018 Jeep Compass?
The all-new Jeep Compass was released halfway through the 2017 model year, so changes for 2018 are minimal. The most notable change for the 2018 Compass is the addition of a 4×2 driveline configuration for Limited models. Last year, the Compass was reimagined and all-new. It was proud to be the most capable compact SUV, a title it still holds. Highlights from the redesign include a wide stance design with sculptural and premium aspects, classic Jeep features such as a distinct seven-slot grille, three different touchscreen sizes (5-, 7-, and 8.4-inch), one exclusive engine option, and three choices for transmission.
What powertrain options are available for the 2018 Jeep Compass?
The 2018 Jeep Compass is offered with one exclusive engine option: a mighty 2.4-liter MultiAir Tigershark four-cylinder. This engine powers the Compass with 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. This small engine keeps fuel costs low by maximizing fuel economy. Customization for the Compass powertrain begins with the three impressive transmission options. If you’re hoping for a front-wheel-drive Compass, you can choose between a six-speed automatic transmission (exclusive for FWD) or a six-speed manual transmission. If you want four-wheel drive, you can opt for that same six-speed manual transmission or a class-exclusive nine-speed automatic transmission (exclusive for 4WD). Trailhawk models come exclusively with 4WD, while all other members of the Compass family can be fitted with front- or four-wheel drive. The Trailhawk also offers optimal capability with its exclusive Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 system that features a 20:1 crawl ratio that’s perfect for the most daunting of trails. It also features Hill-descent Control, 17-inch off-road tires, and an increased ride height of just shy of an inch. Because of these changes and others, the Trailhawk has the ability to tow up to 2,000 pounds and ford 19 inches of water. The Compass also features Jeep’s Selec-Terrain system in 4×4 models which allows drivers to manipulate the four-wheel driveline to better navigate any terrain and weather.
What are some features I may find in the 2018 Jeep Compass?
The 2018 Jeep Compass’s lineup consists of four models: Sport, Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk. Sport models feature a 5-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker sound system, and full Bluetooth connectivity. Latitude models add in a leather-trimmed steering wheel, cloth and simulated leather upholstery, and keyless entry and ignition. Limited models provide the Compass with 18-inch wheels, an 8.4-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heated front seats, and leather upholstery. Finally, Trailhawk models include 17-inch wheels with off-road tires, red front and rear tow hooks, a unique front fascia, a raised suspension, and underbody protection shields.
