This compact Jeep had a bumpy start due to its styling and intent as an on-road vehicle. Continual refinements have improved styling and the Compass now offers an off-road package similar to the Patriot. The Compass is closely related to the Jeep Patriot and Dodge Caliber. Although a 2.0l four-cylinder is the base engine, most Compass models include the 172-bhp 2.4L I-4. Both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models are available. Transmission choices include a standard 5-speed manual or optional CVT. Standard 17-inch alloy wheels can be upgraded to 18-inch alloy or chrome-clad wheels. A Boston Acoustics audio system features liftgate mounted speakers, ideal for tailgate parties.

What Changed:

The Compass was revised for 2011. The most noticeable changes included a new hood, grille, and front fascia. The updated styling bears a stronger family resemblance. The rear styling was updated as well and includes LED tail lamps. Revisions to the interior include soft-touch door panels, a new center console and a new steering wheel.
