The all-new 2017 Compass expands Jeep’s global reach with an unmatched combination of attributes that includes legendary and best-in-class 4×4 off-road capability, advanced fuel-efficient powertrains, premium and authentic Jeep design, superior on-road driving dynamics, open-air freedom, and a host of innovative safety and advanced technology offerings.
The 2017 Compass features a premium, sculptural design aesthetic. The exterior design is expressive and emotional with a wide stance and exceptional glass-to-wheel proportions. The all-new compact SUV is immediately recognisable as a Jeep with its distinctive traditional Jeep design cues. Jeep designers gave the legendary seven-slot grille a fresh look by setting each of the individual chrome slots in a Gloss Black field. Headlamp bezels featuring a black outline add personality and attitude to the front of the all-new Compass.
The 2017 Compass’ interior design showcases a premium cabin highlighted by sculptural surface elements and precise technical detail, with a choice of four new Uconnect systems delivering communication, entertainment and navigation features that drivers and passengers desire, including the segment’s largest full-colour LED instrument cluster.
Safety and security were paramount in the development of the 2017 Compass, which offers more than 70 available active and passive safety/security features.
The vehicle delivers best-in-class off-road capability, courtesy of two advanced, intelligent 4×4 systems, each of which can send 100 percent of available torque to any one wheel.
FCA’s “small wide architecture,” a fully independent suspension, segment-exclusive Koni frequency-damping front and rear strut system, and precise electric power steering combine to deliver superior on-road driving dynamics in the 2017 Compass.
A total of five engines – three gasoline and two diesel – will be offered, depending on the market worldwide. The 2017 Compass is available in four different trim configurations: Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk.
A truly global all-new compact SUV, the 2017 Jeep Compass will be manufactured in Brazil, China, Mexico and India, for consumers in more than 100 countries around the world.
