The 2017 Jeep Compass Trailhawk is the perfect vehicle whether your journeys take you off road or on. It’s an off-road version of a compact crossover. Powered by a Tigershark inline four-cylinder 2.4-liter engine combined with a 9-speed transmission, the Jeep Compass Trailhawk with its 8.5 inches of ground clearance can ford creeks, zip through hill and dale and tow up to 2,000 pounds. It does all you expect a Jeep 4×4 to do and looks good doing it.

The second generation Compass combines elements from both the old Compass and the Patriot into an excellent compact crossover. Slotted between the midsize Cherokee and the subcompact Renegade, the design of the 2017 Jeep Compass Trailhawk with its wide mesh grille featuring seven slots and wrap-around headlights is like the Grand Cherokee. The vehicle also has a split fascia that flares out to black clad pronounced wheel arches, recessed fog lights, two tow hooks in the front and another in the rear. It also has skid plates in the front and rear, 17-inch wheels and off-road tires. This not only gives it buffed up off-road looks, it enables it drive through water that’s 19 inches deep.

The 2017 Jeep Compass Trailhawk is perfect for off-road duty. Even with just three wheels on the ground the vehicle’s active drive system moves power to the other wheels and keeps it going over rocks, stumps and rough terrain. The Trailhawk’s hill-descent control allows it to move effortlessly through pedal-free crawls over steep angles. It also does well in normal driving. Even with its complex four-wheel drive system, the Compass still gets an EPA measured combined 25 miles per gallon. Plus, it has good headroom and with the 60/40 folding seats, there’s enough cargo area for the kids and all their sports gear.

There is also a “Cold Weather Group” which includes a windshield wiper de-icer that costs $195, remote start for $395 and a dual pane sunroof for $1,295. Overall, the Compass is a very refined Jeep, but by adding the Trailhawk, it retains its rugged Jeep bona fides.
