Introduced in 2007, the Jeep Compass was an affront to Jeep traditionalists, mostly because it shared its front-wheel-drive underpinnings with the Dodge Caliber. Despite its lack of refinement and a cheap interior, the Compass and its Patriot stablemate weren’t nearly so offensive to more casual shoppers. These heretical Jeeps drew in boatloads of customers (more than a million in total), providing an accessible entry point to those who wanted the outward appearance of the Jeep brand without the sacrifices of a truck-based Wrangler or the cost of a Grand Cherokee.

2017 Jeep Compass Fails Its Own NY Auto Show Demonstration

  2017 Jeep Compass Fails Its Own NY Auto Show Demonstration While visiting Jeep's course at the New York Auto Show yesterday, CNET's Roadshow caught the new 2017 Compass biting off a little more than it could chew while attempting to climb the company's tallest, metal-grated hill in the rain.When visiting the auto show booth of a rough-and-tumble SUV maker such as Land Rover or Jeep, off-road demonstration courses are not unexpected sights. Usually, the courses are set up at or below the ability of the products in question-they are manufacturer-made marketing tools, after all.

The term SUV gets thrown around pretty liberally these days and in the compact class there aren't many you'd really trust off-road. But Jeep 's Trailhawk

In the decade it took for this second-generation Compass to arrive, Jeep has taken that small-crossover idea and run with it. The new 2017 Compass now shares showroom space with the smaller Renegade and the slightly larger Cherokee, both strong-selling additions to the family that ride atop Fiat-derived platforms. The new Compass employs a stretched version of the Renegade’s underpinnings and slots in above it, fitting into the market somewhere between subcompact and compact SUVs such as Honda’s HR-V and CR-V.

2017 Jeep Compass Plugs a Gap

  2017 Jeep Compass Plugs a Gap There’s a new 2017 Compass for sale at your local Jeep dealer. There’s also an old 2017 Compass for sale there, too. That’s right: Jeep is selling two completely different models called the 2017 Compass. We’ll help you sort them out.

2017 Jeep Compass price range, seller's blue book values, buyer's price, listings near you, consumer reviews, and more. The all-new 2017 Jeep Compass offers sharp styling, a comfortable ride, and with the Trailhawk , real off-road capability.

“Our all-new 2017 Jeep Compass enters an extremely important and growing segment worldwide, and does so with an unmatched list of attributes that includes

The Compass’s 173.0-inch length makes it a bit shorter than the old Compass and Patriot, and its new styling looks far better than those fraternal twins ever did. With a Grand Cherokee–like face and a well-proportioned body, the Compass finally looks the part of a modern Jeep. Our Trailhawk test car turned up the rugged, off-road charm with red tow hooks, four functional skid plates, and 17-inch wheels wrapped in knobby Falken tires.

Like every new Compass, Trailhawk models come with a 180-hp 2.4-liter inline-four. In the Trailhawk, it is always mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and a driver-selectable all-wheel-drive system. That’s a somewhat more sophisticated setup than what is found in most other small crossovers, but the Compass pays for its off-road-worthy setup at the scales with a hefty curb weight of 3680 pounds—about 170 pounds portlier than the larger and more spacious CR-V.

Not a Performer

Predictably, then, acceleration is sluggish, with the new Compass’s zero-to-60-mph time of 8.9 seconds beating its predecessor’s by only 0.6 second. Refinement is lacking, too: The engine is buzzy in the upper rev range and transmits a fair bit of vibration into the cabin. The nine-speed automatic exhibits the lazy behavior that we’ve become accustomed to with this gearbox, namely slow upshifts and a reluctance to downshift. At least Jeep has finally figured out a way to smooth out some of the harsh, clunky shifts between first and second gear that we’ve experienced in Cherokees and Renegades with this transmission. In our hands, the Trailhawk averaged 22 mpg overall and posted 29 mpg in our 75-mph highway test, only slightly behind the EPA ratings of 25 mpg combined and 30 mpg on the highway.

Unlike in the Cherokee, the nine-speed is not the only transmission choice in the Compass. A six-speed Aisin automatic is offered on front-wheel-drive Compasses. And we’ll give Jeep a high-five for offering a six-speed manual not only with front-drive but also in combination with all-wheel drive (on base Sport and mid-level Latitude trims). We haven’t driven a manual Compass, but we’d imagine it must be more fun than the listless nine-speed model.

Rumor: I-4 Turbo to Replace Pentastar V-6, I-6 Turbo to Replace 5.7 Hemi in FCA Lineup

  Rumor: I-4 Turbo to Replace Pentastar V-6, I-6 Turbo to Replace 5.7 Hemi in FCA Lineup Big Changes Possibly Coming for FCA PowerplantsThe site is claiming that the well-regarded Pentastar V-6 is headed into its golden years, and at best has another 6-10 years left in it before it’s replaced by a turbocharged I-4 across the FCA lineup. The I-4 engine, codenamed “GME” will displace approximately 2.4 liters, and will reportedly feature direct fuel injection, a close-coupled catalyst, a twin-scroll turbocharged, offset crankshaft, belt starter/generator (facilitating auto stop-start functionality), and a variable flow electric water pump.

The more on-road-oriented versions of the Compass are, of course, likely to ride and handle better than the Trailhawk, which is hampered by its mud-worthy knobby Falken Wildpeak tires that compromise both grip and comfort on pavement. Its skidpad result of 0.75 g is uncompetitive, and the tires squeal under the slightest hint of hard cornering; such rubber also introduces compromises in on-road braking performance, and this Compass posted a long 70-mph-to-zero braking distance of 191 feet. At least the steering is well weighted and accurate, which combines with firm damping to help the Compass feel more stable and solid than its numbers suggest.

Off the asphalt, the Compass we tested will do things that other crossovers just plain can’t, owing to the Trailhawk model’s relatively high 8.5 inches of ground clearance, skid plates, and a crawl mode that locks the transmission in first gear, giving the Compass a low-range-like 20.4:1 drive ratio. This mode is summoned via the Selec-Terrain knob that governs the all-wheel-drive system, which offers Rock, Snow, Sand, Mud, and Auto modes, in addition to buttons for 4WD Low (the crawl mode), 4WD Lock, and hill-descent control.

The Compass fares well in other measures, too, including a spacious interior. Its rear seats provide good leg- and headroom, and passengers back there benefit from air vents, a USB port, and a 115-volt AC outlet on the back of the center console. The cargo space with all seats up is bigger than what you get in the larger Cherokee. The rear seats fold mostly flat to reveal 60 cubic feet of space—again, more than the Cherokee’s 55 cubes—although the wheel wells do intrude a fair amount on the sides. More annoying is a high cargo floor that makes it difficult to lift heavy items in through the rear hatch—at 31.4 inches, the Trailhawk’s lift-over is more than five inches taller than the Honda HR-V’s. This difference is only partially attributable to the Jeep boasting 1.8 inches more ground clearance (in Trailhawk form); the rest is all about a higher load floor, which presumably allows more suspension travel that is useful off-road.

Up front, the dashboard is dominated by an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen that will seem familiar to those who’ve spent any time in other Fiat Chrysler products. It’s simple to use and has clear graphics; if we were being picky we might complain that the volume and tuning knobs are mounted several inches below the touchscreen, but perhaps we should just be glad that the Compass has real physical knobs for those functions.

Aside from a few splashes of red plastic trim, the Compass has a dour black interior with cheap-looking plastic materials. Trailhawk models come with combination leather-and-cloth seats with red stitching that spice things up a bit, but overall interior quality did not measure up to our test car’s $33,165 cost. That figure did include lots of optional equipment, such as $895 for navigation and the 8.4-inch Uconnect screen; $495 for a power liftgate; $795 for parking sensors, rain-sensing wipers, a security system, and blind-spot warning; and $645 for a heated steering wheel, windshield, and front seats. Even so, we didn’t reach the upper limit for the Compass. Adding more options, such as a panoramic sunroof and additional active-safety features, can push the price to $37,000.

  Here's Another Leaked Picture Of The Jeep Wrangler Pickup We’ve seen pictures of the disguised Jeep Wrangler Pickup before, but it’s an exciting thing, so I’m happy to show more leaked pictures of it when we get them. This picture is from inside an FCA facility, which is why I’ve obscured some of the background around the Jeep truck. The Jeep Wrangler Pickup Is Happening And This Is ItSo far we’ve only seen four-door crew-cab versions of the pickup.

Cheaper Is Better

Unless you’re serious about your off-road adventures, the less expensive Sport and Latitude models are smarter buys than the Trailhawk. Beyond being more reasonably priced, these lesser Compasses also allow you to avoid the nine-speed automatic while still getting all-wheel drive and desirable options such as automatic climate control, a power driver’s seat, and blind-spot warning. They also ride a little lower (0.3 inch with all-wheel drive or 0.7 inch in front-drive trim).

Most first-generation Compass/Patriot buyers were only after the vague appearance of a Jeep, and we can’t imagine that those shoppers will suddenly find they want or need the Trailhawk’s off-road ability. Although the second-generation model is a vast improvement over the original Compass, the new version remains mostly bolstered by the heritage and rugged image derived from its badge and seven-slot grille. And because of that, also like its predecessor, it’s sure to sell like hotcakes.
