For over 75 years Jeep has had a reputation for performance, durability and versatility. Now you can add superior safety. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the all-new 2017 Jeep Compass earns the top safety pick. This is in part because of its body structure that’s made of high-strength steel. This helped the vehicle earn the highest possible ratings when it comes to collision-warning technology and crashworthiness. In all five of the crashworthiness tests, the 2017 Jeep Compass got the top rating of ‘good’. That’s better than all other vehicles in its class. If you want to enjoy a best in class vehicle, you should first take one for a test drive at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.

The all-new Compass was rated ‘superior’ for its Full-speed Forward Collision-Plus which is part of its Automatic Emergency Braking technology that’s currently available. The system benefits from the sensor-fusion strategy employed by Jeep. With more than 70 safety and security features available, including 7 air bags as standard equipment, it’s the most capable compact SUV. The Automatic Emergency Braking technology available on the new Compass was also graded as “superior.” It’s the IIHS’ highest possible rating in its category. Earning an IIHS Top Safety Pick designation requires such performance.

The combination of the over 65% high-strength steel content of the 2017 Jeep Compass and the advanced level of engineering sophistication that went into its development and production contributes to the vehicle’s crashworthiness. It also helps to make the small SUV the most capable ever in its class. Advanced high-strength steel and hot-stamped steel make up over half the high-strength steel in the all-new 2017 Jeep Compass. Since the 2012 model-year FCA US as increased the high-strength steel used in their vehicles by more than 50 percent.

Some other tests in which the 2017 Jeep Compass received a rating of “good” include:

Moderate-offset frontal impact
Side impact involving a pickup truck or large SUV
Small-offset frontal impact
A rear collision powerful enough to cause whiplash
Roof-deformation caused by a rollover

A hallmark of FCA US’ safety strategy is the use of Advanced AEB technology. The all-new 2018 Jeep Compass has benefited from the company’s sensor-fusion technology that’s available in its Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus system in its driver-assist feature. Sensor-fusion uses both radar technology and cameras to provide greater precision when monitoring the road ahead. Most competitive systems employ one or the other. This Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus technology is one of the 2017 Jeep Compass’ 70 security and safety features. They also include side pelvic-thorax air bags mounted on the seats as well as full-length, side-curtain air bags as part of its seven standard-equipment air bags.

The cost of the all-new 2017 Jeep Compass begins at $20,995. That excludes destination, title, taxes and registration fees. This is well worth it because this new authentic SUV combines the Jeep brand’s legendary 75 year heritage with versatility, craftsmanship and class-leading capability for people seeking extraordinary journeys. It offers an open invitation for people to live their life to the fullest. The entire line of Jeep vehicles provide owners with the feeling of security to confidently handle any journey.


The 2018 Jeep Wrangler, the latest version of a very popular off-road vehicle, will begin showing up in showrooms nationwide early next year. Here are a few things people should know about it.

The current generation of the Jeep Wrangler has been sold for over 10 years. The next generation Wrangler is among the most anticipated of the 2018 trucks. Being produced at the Jeep assembly plant in Toledo, Ohio, new Wrangler will debut in late November in the LA Auto Show.

The Jeep Wrangler is an iconic vehicle, so the 2018 model will look much like the models from previous generations. However, it will feature a slightly more bulbous front grille to help the vehicle meet the pedestrian crash safety standards. Plus, the turn signal will now be on the front part of the fender.

Spy photos show the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will have both two door and four door models and buyers can choose between a hard or soft top configuration. Leaked computer renderings confirm the 2018 Wrangler will still offer the trademark removable doors. Pictures of camouflaged prototypes showing exposed door hinges, one of the Wrangler’s traditional design elements, seems to signal the doors on the new model will be able to be popped off.

The windshield on the 2018 Wrangler has hinges. That may be just decoration or it could mean the windshield will fold down like in previous models. The windshield itself is significantly flatter than before signaling it may fold down.

Spy photos show the new Wrangler has a much nicer interior. It might even feature the latest UConnect infotainment system from Fiat Chrysler. It may also have heated steering wheels and dual-zone climate control as available options. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler isn’t ready for test drive yet, but you can check out others Jeep Wrangler models out at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.

Dashboard-mounted window switches on the new Wrangler imply it will have removable doors. Like older Wranglers, it has a shallow, upright dashboard. Portions of it may be color-matched with the exterior paint. It’s uncertain if that’s a standard feature or a high-end option.

There’ll also be a pickup version of the new Wrangler. Allegedly called the Scrambler, it won’t be available until late 2019.

The new Wrangler will retain the classic body-on-frame construction. However, it will be much lighter and get better gas mileage than previous generations because much more aluminum is expected to be used in its body.

Insiders say the 2018 Wrangler will have multiple engine options. They include Fiat Chrysler’s Pentastar V6 and the Hurricane, a four-cylinder, 2.0 liter, 300 horsepower engine with a twin-scroll turbocharger. Built on an aluminum block, the Hurricane will also feature variable valve timing and direct fuel injection. The new Wrangler could also have hybrid and diesel powertrains. Diesel-powered Wranglers are sold outside the US. The diesel option looks like a turbocharged V6, 3.0-liter engine.

Sources and spy photos hint that the next generation Wrangler will offer an optional manual version and one with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This will improve efficiency over the five-speed automatic currently available.

Here comes the long-awaited new and improved 2018 Jeep Wrangler.
