2019 Jeep Compass
The 2019 Jeep Compass not only offers rugged off-road capability, but also a roomy and comfortable interior. Add to this the fact that the Compass is quite affordable and offers decent fuel economy, and you are presented with a very capable and competitive candidate in the somewhat overcrowded compact crossover SUV segment. Let's take a closer look at what the new Compass has to offer.Search Inventory
The 2019 Jeep Compass features four trim levels: Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk, and Limited. The base Sport trim offers 16-inch wheels, black door handles, body-colored front and rear bumpers, heated and power-adjustable door mirrors, and a rear-lip spoiler. With the Latitude trim, you can expect 17-inch wheels, roof rails, body-colored door handles, a black front-bumper insert, fully automatic headlights, and front fog lights. The off-road-geared Trailhawk trim offers heated and power-adjustable mirrors with turn-signal indicators, two front hooks, and skid plates, while the top Limited trim boasts 18-inch wheels, a chrome tip exhaust, two-tone paint, a metal-look rear-bumper insert, and a chrome front-bumper insert. Exciting external colors you can choose from include Spitfire Orange Clearcoat, Jazz Blue Pearlcoat, Granite Crystal Metallic Clearcoat, Diamond Black Crystal Pearlcoat, and Olive Green Pearlcoat.
There is only one engine featured with the 2019 Compass: a 2.4-liter I-4 that will give you 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. With the base and Latitude trims, this engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission, but otherwise it is paired with a six-speed or nine-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard on all trims, but all-wheel drive is also available on all trims except the Trailhawk, which comes with all-wheel drive exclusively.
If you are looking to veer off the beaten track often and take your Compass onto rough terrain, then the Trailhawk is for you. Not only is the suspension of this trim lifted about an inch for greater ground clearance, but it also boasts a simulated low-speed first gear to assist with crawling. Its traction control system also features a "Rock" mode that includes hill-descent control.
The interior of the Compass is comfortable and roomy, providing space for up to five adults. The base Sport trim features a 7-inch infotainment system with Bluetooth and six speakers, two USB ports, cruise control, cloth upholstery, six-way driver and passenger seat adjustments, a rear 60/40 bench seat, six speakers, and voice-activated radio. With the Latitude you can expect a leather-wrapped steering wheel, upgraded cloth upholstery, SiriusXM, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and ambient lighting. The Trailhawk offers leather and cloth upholstery, whereas the Limited trim boasts a heated steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an eight-way power driver seat, chrome/metal-look interior accents, heated front seats, and an 8.4-inch infotainment system.
Standard safety features included with the Compass are a rearview camera, cruise control, a tire-pressure monitoring system, seven air bags, and a traction control system. Available driver-assist features include forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, a blind-spot monitor, adaptive cruise control, active lane control, and rear parking sensors.
