2017 Jeep Compass, Something For Everyone

 

The 2017 Jeep Compass Limited is a crossover that has the heart of a real Jeep. This vehicle has helped make Jeep a major player in the compact crossover segment. It’s stylish, comfortable, versatile and delivers great performance, and if you want to see it in action, check it out at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.

The Compass’ design is clean and purposeful. It has relatively short overhangs and a wide, stable stance. The Limited and Trailhawk models sport a distinctive black roof that makes them stand out in a crowd. The 2017 Jeep Compass has comfortable heated leather-wrapped seats and a thick-rimmed steering wheel. When the temperature is under 32 degrees, the auto-on system automatically heats the driver seat and steering wheel when the engine starts. Used with remote start, you’ll get into a warm Compass ready to roll.

All Jeep Compasses have a touchscreen UConnect infotainment system. A five-inch version comes standard on the Latitude and Sport models, with the option to upgrade to the seven-inch version. In both the Limited and the Trailhawk, the high-end UConnect 4 with its 8.5-inch screen comes standard and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Jeep’s sure-footed Active Drive four-wheel-drive system lets you use a knob located on the center console to choose between auto, snow, sand and mud calibrations. This changes the amount of slip allowable, providing optimal control no matter the surface. The Trailhawk model also has hill-descent control as well as low range which produces a 20:1 crawl ratio. Add the standard skid-plates on the Trailhawk and this vehicle can take you just about anywhere with relative ease.

The 2017 Jeep Compass is powered by a 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine featuring a Multi-Air variable valve lift system from Fiat. This 180 horsepower engine has more than enough power to make this 3,327-pound curb weight vehicle really go. It’s paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission Chrysler has steadily improved over the years. Together they give the 2017 Jeep Compass excellent performance and a modest 21 miles per gallon, even on slick, snow covered roads.

With a 103-inch wheelbase and passenger volume of about 96 cubic feet, the Compass can comfortably carry four adults. Behind the seats it has cargo space totaling 27 cubic feet. That’s more than enough to fit lots of groceries or ski gear and luggage for four people out for a weekend adventure.

This second-generation Compass beats its predecessor by miles. If you are in the market for a crossover utility vehicle built to handle bad weather with ease, the 2017 Jeep Compass is an excellent choice. It’s a compact crossover designed to handle terrain only Jeep Wranglers and CJs used to be bold enough to take on. The Jeep Compass Trailhawk can handle anything you encounter on or off-road. For starting at about $21,000 you can get a front-drive Compass Sport. The rough, rugged and raw Trailhawk base model starts at $28,695. You can also get a fully loaded Jeep Compass Limited for about $34,955.
