New 2017 Jeep Compass at Monroeville Chrysler Jeep for Monroeville, PA
The 2017 Jeep Compass is a modestly trail-toughened small-SUV hatchback, and is great driving around-town, especially on fuel-economy in the front-wheel-drive configuration. Plus, depending on option and model choices, it's arguably one of the least expensive cars in its class. With optional, flip-down tailgate speakers available, standard five-passenger seating, with a 4-wheel-drive off-road mode found on the available Freedom Drive II system, it's quite the ride to rely on. The Jeep Cherokee line admittedly influences the look and style of the Compass, and that is because it is a great look and style, so owners are certainly excited.
Under the Compass's Hood
An option to choose on front-wheel-drive models (standard with AWD) is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that runs 172 horsepower and 165 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0-liter engine-employing Latitude is combined with a continuously variable transmission, and the 5-speed manual transmission (standard) is fused to the 2.0-liter Sport model (unless put with the 6-speed automatic). Optional on the Sport is the highly-regarded Freedom Drive II, which adds an enhanced CVT that has a crawl mode. This mode mimics the low-range gearing found in 4x4 drivetrains, plus it has other features like an engine oil cooler and a fuel tank skid-plate shield. The 2017 base-level Compass comes standard (generally) with a 158 horsepower and 141 pound-feet of torque generating, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, and is squarely configured with front-wheel drive. The 2017 Jeep Compass can tow up to 2,000-lbs when correctly fitted with proper features. In Edmunds testing, a 2017 Compass with the 2.4-liter (six-speed, AWD) got from zero to 60 mph in 9.4 seconds.
Design of Jeep Compass
This is a crossover SUV that has 2 core trims: the Sport and the Latitude. The Latitude has a High Altitude Edition version (within the Latitude). The Sport trim gains you your choice of two styles, either the Sport SE or the 75th Anniversary Edition. There are a lot of packages available on the Compass, and they are model dependent. The remote engine start feature is inherent within the 75th Anniversary package, as are 18-inch, bronze-painted alloy wheels, and a sunroof. Four-wheel-drive Compass trims can be found with the All-Weather Capability Group, and all Compass models are also fit for the Freedom Drive II Off-Road Group. A package (one of several) you might consider putting on is the Security and Cargo Convenience Group, which includes an alarm, cargo cover, universal garage-door opener, and an info display. The Sport SE package has a leather-wrapped steering wheel (with audio controls), a matching gloss-gray body trim, heated front seats, and many other items to enjoy. Standard on the Sport is a tilt-only steering wheel, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a 4-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio, 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks, foglights, air-conditioning, cruise control, a USB port next to an aux jack, 16-inch alloy wheels, and an auto-dimming mirror for the rearview. The Latitude brings the Sport's standard features, but also packs in the Power Value Group and has 17-inch wheels. The High Altitude Edition package opens things up with a sunroof, leather upholstery, and a few other additions.
How is the fuel economy on this vehicle?
The 2017 Jeep Cherokee can see up to 30 miles per gallon (mpg), depending on model, engine and features.
Why are there 2 Freedom Drive systems?
Jeep Freedom Drive I 4x4 is an available full-time, active 4-wheel-drive system with a lock mode that gets drivers a stronger ability to handle rough weather and low-traction conditions, especially on general, everyday roads. The Freedom Drive II is more for actual off-roading, steeper inclines and log/boulder traversing, for instance.
