What are the new features of the 2018 Jeep Compass' design?

Athletic and wide, yet sleek and aerodynamic, the 2018 Jeep Compass takes heavy design cues from the Jeep Grand Cherokee, looking like the little sibling that's ready to keep up with just as much adventure as its larger counterpart. This vehicle comes in four capable trim configurations: the Sport, Latitude, Limited, and off-road specialized Trailhawk. All models lead with Jeep's famous seven-slot grille, available in either black or chrome, and round, expressive headlamps with accent LEDs. Its designed to look fast, with a longer styled nose, sharply angled windshield, and a dramatic roof-to-rear slope with exaggerated wheel forms and structured, crisp lines running the length of the SUV. The body color comes two-toned with the Latitude, Limited, and Trailhawk model designs, with the main color as well as a black roof to accentuate the sweeping design. The Trailhawk comes with an increased ground clearance, skidplates, a blackout anti-glare hood, and accenting red tow hooks. Travel to the interior, and discover just as much thought and upscale consideration paid to the inside layout of the 2018 Jeep Compass. Five passengers sit comfortably within, with 39 inches of legroom for the rear seating. 27 cubic feet of space is behind the second row, and that increases to 60 cubic feet when the seats are folded down. Standard features include keyless entry and push-button start, rearview camera with a five-inch touch screen, six speakers, Bluetooth connectivity, and voice recognition. Higher trims include further enhanced quality-of-life features, such as automatic headlights, power-adjustable heated and ventilated front seats, navigation, increased touchscreen sizes, and an upgraded Beats audio system.

How does the 2018 Jeep Compass performance rank?

While globally, the 2018 Jeep Compass has seventeen various powertrain configurations and builds, American models are powered with the 180 horsepower, 175 pound-feet torque 2.4-liter four-cylinder Tigershark engine. There's optional front- or all-wheel drive on all trims but for the Trailhawk, which only comes in 4WD. The base Sport model comes with a six-speed manual transmission. Otherwise, front-wheel drive Compass models come with an automatic six-speed transmission, while the all-wheel drive vehicles are upped to the nine-speed automatic for more gear and torque specificity when handling difficult terrain or weather conditions. Automatic-equipped Compass models also come with a start/stop idling system, that cuts engine activity when brakes are fully applied in order to save on fuel. The FWD manual has the highest fuel efficiency, getting 23/32 mpg, while the automated 4WD achieves 22/30 mpg. Hill Ascent and Descent Control aids in handling 30-degree approach angles, 24-degree breakover angles, and 34-degree departure angles. The Compass can drive through up to 19 inches of water like a pro, and towing up to 2,000 pounds is a breeze thanks to the Tigershark's capability and power.
