It should come as no surprise to anybody that an automotive company with over 70 years of experience in developing and manufacturing off-road vehicles should offer a vehicle to those buyers in Berwyn who are interested in a compact SUV. The new Jeep Compass in Berwyn is stylish, is equipped with a switchable four-wheel drive, and has a luxuriously appointed interior.
Most compact SUVs are limited in their off-road abilities, but not the Jeep Compass. Whereas other vehicles might be limited to driving over an open field, the Compass can go well off the beaten track with ease.
The Jeep Compass was completely redesigned for 2017. As such, there are very few changes in the 2018 model. For the 2018 model year, the Limited trim is now available with front-wheel drive. In the past, this model was only available with all-wheel drive.
The compass was subjected to a major redesign program in model year 2017. The exterior echoes the handsome appearance of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. New powertrains were introduced as were a full complement of infotainment technologies and active safety features.
Every Compass, from front-wheel drive sports models right through to the Limited, has a 180 HP four-cylinder engine. A six-speed manual transmission is available for both the front wheel and all-wheel-drive variants. For those buyers that prefer an automatic transmission, a six-speed unit is standard in front-wheel drive models; a nine-speed unit is standard in all-wheel-drive models.
Front-wheel drive models of the Jeep Compass are slightly more fuel efficient than the all-wheel-drive vehicles. However, they both are rated above 30 mpg on the highway. Although there is only a marginal difference of one mpg, the most fuel-efficient Jeep Compass is one with front-wheel drive and manual transmission.
