This compact Jeep had a bumpy start due to its styling and intent as an on-road vehicle. Continual refinements have improved the styling and the Compass now offers an off-road package similar to its fraternal twin, the Patriot. 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, optional six-speed automatic, and optional CVT (AWD, Freedom Drive II). Standard 17-inch alloy wheels can be upgraded to 18-inch alloy or chrome-clad wheels.

What Changed:

A six-speed automatic transmission replaces the CVT in most models. A CVT is still included in the Freedom Drive II off-road model.
