The Jeep Compass is the compact SUV built for adventurous drivers, providing first-rate performance and an array of advanced features to enjoy drives around Ontario, Wayne County, and Sodus. To show you why this innovative SUV may be an ideal fit for you, take a closer look at its features in our 2018 Jeep Compass review, which was crafted by the experts at Peake Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT. By reading on, you can learn about the off-road capability, engine performance, and safety features of the Jeep Compass.

Driving Off-Road in the Compass

Any Jeep is an off-road-ready machine. The Jeep Compass continues this adventurous legacy with its legendary capabilities, earning it the Trail Rated® badge—a testament to its significant ability to traverse across various terrain.

  • Crawl Ratio: 20:1
  • Water Depth: Up to 19 inches
  • Turning Diameter: 35.3 feet
  • Approach Angle: 30.3o
  • Departure Angle: 33.6o

In addition to its incredible off-roading abilities, the 2018 Cherokee also utilizes the versatile technology of the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System. Choose from up to five on- and off-road modes—Auto, Snow, Sand, Mud, or Rock—to tackle a variety of conditions and surfaces.

Engine Performance

Although you may want to occasionally take your SUV off-road, you want to be sure you have a level of engine performance that makes city and highway driving easy, which is exactly what you’ll receive with the 2018 Jeep Compass.

Hit the road in the Compass, and you’ll be powered by a 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine, which delivers 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. Despite its impressive power output, it still maintains an EPA-estimated 23 city/32 highway MPG, so you won’t have to sacrifice power for efficiency. For aggressive launches, opt for the available 9-speed automatic transmission. When you have both of these performance-enhancing components, the Jeep Cherokee can tow up to 2,000 pounds. With this blend of power and strength, you’ll be able to haul your camper, boat, and anything else with ease.

Compass Safety Features

There are a variety of advantages to choosing the 2018 Jeep Compass as your next compact SUV, but the major benefit is knowing that you and your passengers will be completely safe when you take a drive:

  • ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera: Coming standard, this useful camera displays an image of what’s behind you on the touchscreen for easily maneuvering out of parking spots.
  • Hill Start Assist: To prevent rollback on steep inclines, this standard safety system maintains brake pressure between pressing the brake pedal and stepping on the accelerator.
  • LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist: If this system detects unintentional lane departure, it’ll warn you and provide corrective steering to guide you back to the lane.
  • Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking: With this proactive safety aid, you’ll be alerted to any potential frontal impacts. If action isn’t taken after it detects a risk, it’ll automatically engage the brakes.

On top of these active safety features, the Jeep Compass is also crafted with high-strength steel and other advanced materials to form a durable cocoon around its passengers. Along with the comprehensive airbag system, the 2018 Jeep Compass combines technology with craftsmanship for supreme safety.
