At The Track In Testing
Jeep Compass 2017 4-door SUV
Trim Shown: North/High Altitude
The new Compass, which slots above the Renegade and below the Cherokee, should be better than its uncompetitive and outclassed predecessor. Power comes from a 180-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder--an engine we found to be somewhat unrefined and sluggish in other Jeeps. Three transmission choices are available: six-speed manual, and six- and nine-speed automatics. It has a roomy rear seat and the excellent Uconnect infotainment system. Available safety features include forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and a rearview camera. The Trailhawk will be the more robust off-road version, with rock-crawling gearing and off-road tires, and the ability to tow up to 2,000 pounds. The old Compass is sold as a 2017 model alongside the new one, so make sure you don't get swayed by its likely cheaper price.
