What's New in the New 2017 Jeep Compass?

Have you noticed an unusually small Jeep Grand Cherokee around the Pikeville area recently? You may have caught a glimpse of the all-new 2017 Jeep Compass.

This newly-redesigned model may bear the Compass name, but it's on a new platform, has a new powertrain, more capable four-wheel drive, and will be taking over for the Jeep Patriot, which is being discontinued.

When you test drive the 2017 Jeep Compass, look for the new 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir 2 engine, which pairs with an exclusive nine-speed automatic transmission in 4x4 models. Its 180 horsepower is about on-par with competitors in the compact SUV segment, but delivers superior capability with its two available four-wheel-drive systems, Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low.

Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA Global, is passionate about his vision for this new model:

“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 benchmark 4x4 off-road capability, exceptional on-road driving dynamics, fuel-efficient powertrains, countless advanced technology and safety features, all wrapped in a premium, authentic Jeep design."
