2018 Jeep Compass Model Review
Picture this: it’s a Friday afternoon and you’re all packed up for a camping trip. The car is full yet still spacious as everybody settles in for a drive towards relaxation. The landscape changes from suburban to rural and your Jeep Compass navigates every turn with ease, never waking a resting passenger.
Coming in four different models, the Jeep Compass is a stylish and athletic alternative for families on the go. With Sport as our foundation model, the Compass progresses through Latitude, Altitude, and finishes strong with our Limited model. Regardless of your choice, the Compass is designed to take you through city streets and dirt roads alike.
The revamped 2018 Compass has claimed the title of the most capable compact SUV ever thanks to a powerful engine and innovative design both inside and out. With features customized for every element, the Compass ensures an elevated experience no matter where you’re headed.
Weather or Not, Here You Come
Let your Compass do the thinking. The new Selec-Terrain traction management system keeps you moving using multiple system settings: snow, sand, mud, and rocks. Or, throw it in auto mode to automatically engage 4-wheel drive when needed. This, combined with the Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 System, means you’ll maintain all wheels on the ground to continue your journey worry-free. Talk about natural selection.
The available windshield wiper de-icer melts the snow and ice from your windshield to increase time efficiency and visibility in frozen temperatures, while heated mirrors prevent ice and fog build-up. Rain sensing wipers locate moisture on your windshield and engage automatically so you can focus on driving.
The Jeep® Compass Trailhawk® is the only Compass model equipped with Hill Descent Control. It monitors throttle, speed and braking on steep slopes, allowing you to breathe easy down heavy inclines. Hill Start Assist keeps your brakes applied after you’ve released the brake pedal to give you time to accelerate without rollback.
Optimize Navigation With Power and Innovation
A dynamic 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine provides drivers with Best-in-Class 4×4 Highway Fuel Economy. Both a six-speed manual or a six- or nine-speed automatic transmission are available for a top-rated experience. With the automatic transmission, fuel-saving Stop/Start technology is standard. Stop/Start technology ensures the engine turns off when the vehicle stops, then starts again when the brakes are released.
With up to 180 Horsepower, the MultiAir® 2 valvetrain system on the 2.4L Tigershark® engine maximizes intake manifold pressure and manages combustion quality to help the engine run more effectively. The available nine-speed automatic transmission further optimizes engine output and enables aggressive launches and smooth power delivery.
Get 4×4 capability without sacrificing the efficiency you’re used to. The available Jeep® Active Drive 4×4 System features a rear axle disconnect that seamlessly switches between two- and four-wheel drive to help increase efficiency when you don’t need 4×4 capability.
Sleek Exterior Stands Out With High Performance
They’ll never doubt it’s you thanks to the unique tow hooks at the front of your Jeep Compass. A great detail in functionality and style, there are endless ways your Compass will come of service. No need to be weary of low surfaces: the Compass comes equipped with increased ground clearance and underbody skid plates so you can travel with ease. The front and rear are both designed with approach and departure angles in mind.
An athletic, new-age twist on classic Jeep style, the Compass turns heads on the trail and in the city. Take pride in driving a vehicle defined by our trademark Jeep grille and updated light features. Front headlamp options feature distinctive daytime running lamps with an available LED lighting strip. The projector beam headlamps illuminate automatically when night falls or a stormy sky darkens. Available cornering fog lamps light automatically to illuminate your path when the steering wheel turns.
To drive a Compass means to drive tradition. Our trapezoidal wheel arches have been a staple in the DNA of every Jeep since 1941. Though we offer tires and wheels in variation, the foundation we depend on will always remain constant. We also know how to make an exit. Chrome exhaust tips can be found at the end of every Jeep Compass so you’ll never be lost in the crowd. From start to finish, every detail of the Jeep Compass is impressive and effective.
Take a Seat
You spend a lot of time in your car. That’s why comfort and accommodation are key in the Compass. Your front seats are heated and power-adjustable 8 different ways. Your Compass is compatible with U-Connect, Apple Carplay, Android Auto, and SiriusXM Guardian so you’re more in touch than ever while staying hands-free.
The available, Class-Exclusive 7-inch Multiview Driver Information Digital Cluster Display
16 is fully configurable, allowing you to tailor your personal settings and graphics to suit your desires. The display integrates detailed Navigation (if equipped), media information such as song, artist and station, a full-speed gauge, the available Selec-Terrain® Traction Control System and more.
Less is more when it comes to the cargo space in your Compass. Take down the back seats for even more storage room for camping, a road trip, or even extra groceries. The simple press of a button lifts the door to a world of storage you didn’t know you needed. There’s extra space hidden within every storage hold. The cargo mat keeps your Compass clean while it keeps your life efficiently in motion.
Stay Reinforced and Reassured
With over 70 safety features and options, you’ll feel secure from all sides in your Jeep Compass. Vehicles aren’t capable of human error. That’s why the Compass has available technology to correct your path if it feels you drifting from your lane or engage your brakes if it senses an impending collision. The seven standard driver and front passenger airbags incorporate a three-vent system to ensure optimal deployment for occupants of every size and weight.
Your key fob is equipped with a panic button that can be utilized in situations that have you feeling unsafe in any way. SiriusXM Guardian ensures you remain hands-free during phone calls or while following directions. When you’re in a Compass, your safety is a given.
