Never Lose Your Way in a 2018 Jeep Compass

By Ryan Everson | August 16th, 2018

For impressive off-road capability and bold styling cues, check out the 2018 Jeep Compass. This SUV comes in five trim levels with distinguishing characteristics that will let you find the Compass that fits you best. You can get the trail-ready SUV you’ve always wanted with a comfort-forward interior that still has the classic Jeep styling cues. Plus, the comfortable cabin has an infotainment system that’s easy to use and ready to help you find your way.

Every Jeep Compass comes with a standard 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder that produces 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. The Compass comes standard with front-wheel drive and has optional four-wheel drive. The front-wheel-drive Compass has two transmission options: a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox. But if you’re looking to do some off-roading, you’ll want the four-wheel-drive model with the manual six-speed transmission or optional nine-speed automatic transmission.

The 2018 Jeep Compass’ available trims start with the Sport model and move up to the Latitude, Altitude, off-road-focused Trailhawk, and the luxury-oriented Limited trim. Each trim is available with four-wheel drive and the Selec-Terrain system with four modes — Sand, Snow, Mud, and Auto — to give you better performance in all conditions.

 

 

But when you upgrade to the Trailhawk, you’ll add Rock mode to the Selec-Terrain for better rock-crawling capabilities and active drive low for a class-leading 20-to-1 crawl ratio. This trim sits an inch taller with skid plates to make best use of the 30-degree approach angle, 24-degree breakover angle, and 34-degree departure angle. It also includes red tow hooks, aggressive 17-inch wheels wrapped in off-road tires, and hill-descent control.

Just because you’re roughing it through the trails doesn’t mean you can’t sit in comfortable seats. Take your trail-trekking to the next level with plush leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. You’ll always have directions with the available 8.4-inch touchscreen with optional navigation. The Uconnect system provides hands-free communication options and connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Don’t leave your safety to chance. The 2018 Jeep Compass comes with up to 70 available safety features and active driver assist technology to give you confidence behind the wheel. The available forward collision warning with active braking and lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist offer alerts to let you know about potential hazards on the road and works with you to mitigate the situation.
