2017 Jeep Compass at Legacy Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for La Grande, OR

The 2017 Jeep Compass could be considered the smaller cousin to the Jeep Cherokee or Grand Cherokee with its similar design and sleek exterior. The Jeep Compass has a new design for 2017 and it continues to be a favorite with its off-roading capability and smooth and comfortable ride on pavement. Signature Jeep design is incorporated in the new Compass such as the seven-slot front grille and its athletic styling. Known for its best-in-class off-road capability, the Compass' Trailhawk trim offers specialized features such as a raised suspension, manual transmission, skid plates, underbody protection and a 20:1 crawl ratio on steep terrain. Numerous comfort and technology features also abound on the 2017, making it one of the most comfortable compact SUVs on the market.

Under the Compass's Hood

Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk are the four trim levels offered in the 2017 Compass lineup. Each Compass comes with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 175 pound-feet of torque and 180 horsepower. All but the Sport model come standard with four-wheel drive, but the Sport can be upgraded to four-wheel drive. Transmissions in the Compass vary depending on the model. For example, the nine-speed automatic is standard on the higher trims with four-wheel drive and the six-speed manual is standard with the front-wheel drive models. A six-speed automatic is offered as well for those that do not like a manual transmission. The four-wheel drive systems have the Jeep Selec-Terrain system with five modes- Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud modes, plus the Rock mode offered only on the Trailhawk. The Compass also has a disconnecting rear axle and power take-off unit, which improves fuel economy on 4x4 models. Another intuitive component of the Compass' 4x4 system is the Active Drive and Active Drive Low feature, which instantly engages when 4x4 traction is needed.
