2018 Jeep Compass at Lakeland Chrysler Jeep Dodge

The all-new Jeep Compass is truly a marvel on wheels if you consider all that it can do! It was completely re-tooled and re-visualized onto the global platform with proficiencies that make it certainly worth considering. There are noticeable color choice design additions within the Jeep's grille that currently has a Gloss Black field with pronounced chrome outlines for each of its seven slots. A purchasable painted Gloss Black roof pairs well with the grille, and for 2018, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto become accessible within the Uconnect 4 systems! The Jeep Compass can be a 2-wheel drive or a 4-wheel drive, it can use one of three transmissions, and it can have several off-road assistance systems, like Jeep Active Drive as well as the Jeep Selec-Terrain system! This vehicle is made to handle some roughhousing, but is also capable (and comfortably) suited for the roads too!

How does the power get channeled into the 2018 Jeep Compass?

The 2018 Jeep Compass employs a hefty 2.4-liter MultiAir Tigershark engine which generates 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The Trailhawk version adds engine stop-start as standard. If you get a 4x4 version, you will acquire a special 9-speed automatic transmission, where a 6-speed automatic transmission is installed into 4x2 models typically. There is, however, a manual 6-speed transmission on either setup, as Jeep ensures that its buyers get exactly what they need in terms of capability options. Further directing the Compass into (and out of) poor surface conditions is Jeep Active Drive Low, which has a remarkable 20:1 crawl ratio and best-in-class off-road performance with its extra Rock Mode. The usual Mode selectable system is titled Jeep Selec-Terrain and enters the equation as standard on all 4x4 models, with settings for Sand, Auto, Mud, and Snow. All trims (minus the Trailhawk) incorporate Jeep Active Drive, which is a full-time 4x4 system that assists in off-road adverse conditions quite admirably. Remember as well that the Compass was re-made mid-2017 to meet the "small-wide 4x4 architecture" criteria and thus has a 4-wheel independent suspension with 8.5" of ground clearance and up to 8.2" of wheel articulation.

Can you discuss the off-road capability of the Trailhawk trim?

The Jeep front/rear red tow-hook-sporting Trailhawk model has best-in-class 4x4 'Trail-rated' functionality! It is standard with armor underneath via skid plates and a full-size spare tire. It comes with Jeep Active Drive Low 4x4 in its repertoire, which has a standard 20:1 crawl ratio. It has an inherently taller ride height of almost one inch as well as a 24-degree breakover angle! The Trailhawk model's approach angle is 30 degrees and it clears obstacles on the way out with an incredible 34-degree departure angle. Also complementing the Trailhawk model's capability is 17" All-Season On/Off-road tires (215/65R17 BSW), an Auto Stick nine-speed transmission, and Hill-descent Control. The Trailhawk model can go through up to 19" of water and has up to 2,000-pound towing capability when fitted with the Trailer-Tow Package. The Trailhawk, of course, has its own beefed-up off-road suspension as standard, skid plates (over the fuel tank, transfer case, transmission & front suspension), as well as a glare-reducing black hood decal.

How do features compare in the models of the Compass for 2018?

For 2018, the all-new Jeep Compass offering is showcased with 4 trim versions: the Latitude, Sport, Limited, and the 4x4 Trailhawk. All have a daytime running light system, a capless fuel filler, quad halogen headlights, signature badging, a removable short mast antenna, and a 13.5-gallon gas tank-- all as standard. The Limited model incorporates a well-fitted rear exhaust with dual tips, while the exhaust tips on the alternate trims are out of sight. There are 11 potential colors for the exterior, like Bright White Tri-Coat, Laser Blue Pearl Coat, and even a Rhino Clear Coat for the Limited/Trailhawk models. A fun Spitfire Orange also makes the list for noticeable colors on the Trailhawk, it should be noted.Look inside to locate a 3-position height-adjustable load floor, a push-button start, a rear cargo underfloor tray, an Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC), handles for back riders and also for the driver, a rear seat armrest, dual 12-volt auxiliary power outlets, an odometer with an inherent temperature display, and power speed-sensitive door locks. The Trailhawk alone sees an option for the Leather Interior Group, which has a remote start system, Ruby-Red accent stitching on the seats, heated seats in the front, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and then some! Across many models, the interior options seem like they only increase! Unless otherwise furnished with package options, all trims bring 6-speakers, Integrated Voice Command with Bluetooth, and a Media Hub. Uconnect options include screen sizes in 5", 7", and 8.4" versions. The 5" one uses Uconnect 3 and the others have Uconnect 4, which includes the new Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 8.4" version can put in Navigation as well- which is as handy on the roads as off! SiriusXM Radio is standard on the Trailhawk and the Limited models, while SiriusXM Radio, Guardian, Traffic Plus, and Travel Link are all available as packages or as options.
