2018 Jeep Compass Review

To fill the gap between the smaller Renegade and the fan-favorite Cherokee, the 2018 Jeep Compass is a crossover SUV that offers an upscale cabin, spacious interior room, and an ideal blend of performance and capability.

Drivers in Manhattan, the Bronx, and Queens can discover all that the 2018 Jeep Compass has to offer with our in-depth model review.


All Jeep Compass models are equipped with a 2.4L MultiAir® engine, which produces 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. With the Jeep Compass Sport, the base trim level, and the Latitude trim, the engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. However, for an even smoother ride, the Latitude and Trailhawk trims both come with a 9-speed automatic transmission.

For off-roading, the Trailhawk is the way to go. Each Trailhawk model brandishes the Trail Rated® badge, which signifies its supreme off-roading capabilities.

  • Crawl Ratio: 20:1
  • Water Depth: Up to 19 inches
  • Turning Diameter: 35.3 feet

  • Departure Angle: 33.6o

Along with its impressive abilities listed above, the Cherokee Trailhawk also comes with several advanced systems to further maximize its off-roading prowess, such as the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System. Coming standard on all Compass 4x4 models, it features five on- and off-road modes, so the driver can tackle a variety of surfaces. 

Jeep Compass Exterior

Outside, the 2018 Compass borrows style points from its Grand Cherokee sibling. It's outfitted with the familiar seven-slot grille, along with an aerodynamic profile that expertly unites eye-pleasing style with functionality. The taillamps, too, mold themselves with the sweeping curves of the Compass. By blending form with function, these taillamps stand out, both in design and on the road. As for the trail-ready Trailhawk trim, it features front and rear tow hooks, along with incredible ground clearance, so you can traverse any terrain with confidence and stability.

Inside, the Compass has been sculpted to offer a cozy yet upscale interior cabin. Add a selection of available leather-trimmed seat colors, such as Two-Tone Black and Ski Gray with Ruby Red Stitching, to customize your ride. Other interior trim colors include Sandstorm with Dark Saddle Stitching, Monotone Black with Ruby Red Stitching, and Monotone Black with Cattle Tan and Light Diesel Stitching.
