If you’re on the hunt for a vehicle that has the capability of the Jeep Cherokee but the perks of a premium SUV, you’re in the right place! The 2018 Jeep Compass offers a variety of remarkable features, from adventure-read equipment to the latest in convenience technology.

In this car review by Hillview Motors, we’ll highlight some of the features that Jeep drivers in Greensburg, Jeanette, and Delmont will be most excited about. Read ahead to learn more!

Performance Specifications

The 2018 Jeep Compass is powered by a 2.4L Tigershark Multiair® 2 engine which provides an impressive balance of power and efficiency. This engine, which comes standardly paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, manufactures a respectable 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque while also delivering an efficient EPA-estimated 32 highway/23 city MPG1.

With this remarkable efficiency, the Compass has earned itself the Best-in-Class Ranking for 4×4 Highway Fuel Economy2. However, it only gets better from there if you choose to go with the available 9-speed automatic transmission. This transmission comes standardly featuring Stop/Start technology, which switches the engine off when you’re stopped in order to conserve fuel.

Adventure Readiness

As a Jeep vehicle, the 2018 Compass is ready and eager for adventure—and this is especially true for the Trail-Rated® Trailhawk trim level. This trim specializes in navigating the road less traveled with the following adventure specifications:

  • Traction Crawl Ratio: 20:1
  • Water Fording Depth: Up to 19 inches
  • Approach Angle: 30.3 degrees
  • Breakover Angle: 24.4 degrees
  • Departure Angle: 33.6 degrees

The Trailhawk and the Compass’ many other trim levels also offer a variety of available equipment geared toward exploring. Opt for the Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 System and the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System for enhanced traction and control on any surface.

Advanced Technology

On top of being powerful, efficient, and adventure-ready, the 2018 Jeep Compass is smart. Just a few of the impressive technology features you’ll find in this model include the Uconnect® infotainment system with available 8.4-inch touchscreen display, voice command recognition, and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.

To round out your adventure-filled ability in this vehicle, you can opt for available Navigation. This feature will give you easy turn-by-turn directions to all your destinations right on the infotainment screen. You’ll also have access to your Compass at all times if you opt for SiriusXM Guardian™.

The latter feature allows you to gain remote access to your vehicle in order to do things like request roadside assistance, use several additional Navigation features, and even receive security alerts.
