Don’t Wait: Test Drive a Jeep Compass Today

November 26th, 2018 by

If you’re looking for a small, stylish SUV that has the comfort and power for highway cruising, and is nimble enough to get around the city, you should take a close look at the 2019 Jeep Compass.

With four trim levels — Sport, Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk — there’s a Compass model to suit your style and your budget. It is also available with the features you need for towing heavy loads or going off-road in the wilderness, giving you many reasons to take it for a test drive.

Hauling Capacity

If you need to load up with gear, the Compass has the space for it. The cargo area is 27.2 cubic feet with the back seats up, and 59.8 cu ft with them folded flat. For longer items, the front passenger seat folds forward. Also available is an innovative adjustable cargo floor for more versatility. The car has various cubby holes and pockets for smaller items.

For your towing needs, the optional tow kit provides a four-pin harness and a class three hitch. Four-wheel drive models have a maximum towing capacity of 2,000 pounds.

Off-Road Ability

All-wheel drive Compass models have great off-road capability, and the Trailhawk, with standard AWD, is in a class of its own. With extra ground clearance and Jeep’s legendary traction and maneuverability, it wears its Trail Rated badge with pride.

The Selec-Terrain system gives you five settings, auto, snow, sand, mud, and rock. Hill descent control leaves you to concentrate on the steering for a smooth descent. For increased efficiency you can switch seamlessly to two-wheel drive for the road.

Power and Economy

The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine produces 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque, while returning up to 32 mph for highway driving. Stop-start technology adds to the fuel efficiency.

Comfort and Convenience

When you need to take a road trip, the Compass doesn’t skimp on the creature comforts. The Sport has cloth upholstery with front bucket seats and 60/40 split folding rear seats. For your convenience it features keyless illuminated entry, and push button start, while cruise control with steering wheel mounted controls makes driving a breeze. Dual-zone climate control, rear camera, and a 3.5-inch driver information screen are also standard.

Latitude adds a leather steering wheel, while Trailhawk has leather trimmed seats, ambient lighting, and a color 7-inch driver information screen. Top-of-the-range Limited gives you a heated steering wheel, perforated leather upholstery with heated front seats and power driver’s seat, and remote start.

Optional packages are available, such as the Advanced Safety Group which gives you adaptive cruise control with forward collision alert, lane assist, and lane departure warning

Stay Connected

Jeep’s Uconnect infotainment system offers a 7-inch touch screen display with six-speaker audio with steering wheel controls, voice activated Bluetooth for hands free calling and audio streaming, and smartphone integration. Stepping up to Trailhawk or Limited trims gets you an 8.4-inch touch screen and satellite radio.
