Compact crossover SUVs have always had trouble emulating their larger, more performance-based predecessors. The Jeep® Compass first hit the streets in 2007, but a lot was missing from that first rendition. It didn’t have the performance elements you look for in an SUV, compact or otherwise. With the release of the 2017 Jeep Compass, we have a compact crossover SUV that checks all the boxes. It has the look and feel of a new Jeep Grand Cherokee, but all in a more compact, sporty shell.
The 2017 Jeep Compass is equipped with a 2.4-liter Tigershark 4-cylinder engine that’s capable of producing 180 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque, which vastly outperforms previous models. With three available transmission options and the option of going with either 4×2 or 4×4 renditions, this compact SUV can be taken to new heights in terms of performance and off-road capabilities. Another new addition to the Jeep Compass family is the available Trailhawk trim, which features the Selec-Terrain® system that has made all of their SUVs incomparable when it comes to off-road performance.
The interior features a standard 5-inch LCD screen, while 7 and 8.4-inch screens are available as upgrades. All-in-all, in the 2017 Jeep Compass you are getting what you’d expect from any other SUV in their catalog, only in a more compact model. It’s exciting, while expected, that the brand has found its footing in creating the perfect compact crossover SUV, and here at Posner Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM we are proud to offer the all-new Jeep Compass to customers in and around Davenport, FL. Feel free to contact us with any questions you have about this or any of our other models. We look forward to seeing you soon.
