2017 Jeep Compass: Model Overview

�This year, the Jeep Compass is offered in four principal trims (Sport, Sport SE, Latitude, and High Altitude) and one special edition trim that celebrates Jeep's 75th�year anniversary.

Outside:�The 2017 Jeep Compass's design makes an instant, yet lasting impression. Its head-on appearance features a body color front fascia, an intrepid chrome-dipped version of Jeep's signature seven-slot grille, premium fog lamps, and halogen headlights.

Inside:�With nearly 41 inches of front headroom and legroom and over 39 inches for headroom and legroom in the backseat, the two-row, five-seat Compass defies the average compact SUV with its usable, adult-friendly cabin space. There's also plenty of clever seating features that make the 2017 Compass inherently adaptable, like the fold-flat front passenger seat that allows you to haul long items like skis or surf boards.

Jeep Compass Performance and Capability

Between its two engines, four transmissions, and two 4x4 systems, the 2017 Jeep Compass offers buyers plenty of powertrain options. The entry-level Compass is powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that makes 158 horsepower and mated with a 5-speed manual transmission.

One engine that's a step up is the 2.4L 4-cylinder version that has a pleasant 172 horsepower on tap. For enhanced all-weather or all-trail travel, the front-wheel drive standard Compass can be upgraded to sport one of two four-wheel drive systems.

The first, Freedom Drive I?, offers great traction for taking to snow-laden, slippery streets and keeping your footing in inclement weather. The second, Freedom Drive II�, is saved for off-road adventurists craving the ability to take on all-terrain types, including deep snow, mud, and sand, as well as abrupt changes in elevation.

The 2017 Compass Keeps You Connected

�Your busy daily routine demands convenient in-car technology. Luckily, even the 2017 Jeep Compass Sport is well-equipped with the connectivity you need to help make life more manageable.

Standard Bluetooth� and Uconnect� Voice Command technology work together to provide a hands-free way to call a friend or family member on the road, change the radio station, or stereo volume, while keeping your focus straight ahead. And since SiriusXM Satellite Radio is another entrant on the Compass's media standards list, you have a great deal of potential, safe station surfing to do.

Even venturing up just one Compass trim to the Compass Sport SE adds in many luxury-level features you wouldn't expect to see so soon, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel and heated sport-style seats.
