With a starting MSRP of $20,995, the 2017 Jeep Compass is available in four different trim configurations: Sport, Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk.

This compact sport utility vehicle offers an array of features with highlights including SiriusXM radio, keyless entry, available body-colored exterior door handles, available dual-zone automatic temperature control, audio system with six speakers, floor mats, available Piano Black interior accents, stylish accent stitching, and standard premium cloth upholstery. Other available options include items such as 18-inch aluminum wheels with polished face and satin black pockets or 19-inch aluminum wheels with polished face and high gloss black painted pockets, leather-trimmed seating and a premium audio system with nine speakers.

The 2017 Compass showcases authentic Jeep design with its signature seven-slot front grille. Jeep designers gave the legendary seven-slot grille a fresh look by setting each of the individual chrome slots in a Gloss Black field.

With seating for up to five, the Jeep Compass offers 38.3-inches of rear legroom, 49.2-inches of rear hip room and 55.1-inches of rear shoulder room. The Jeep Compass features a rear 60/40 split folding seat and 27.2 cubic feet of cargo volume (with rear seats upright). When rear seats are folded, the cargo volume increases to 59.8-cubic feet.

Interior colors complement the array of exterior colors, including hues such as Olive Green Pearl Coat, White Clear Coat and Jazz-Blue Pearl Coat.

The fuel-efficient 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine powers the Compass, delivering best-in-class 4x4 highway fuel economy of 31 mpg when paired with the six-speed manual transmission.

Additionally, this engine produces 180 horsepower and 175 foot-pounds of torque, and is paired with a choice of three transmissions in North America: a class-exclusive nine-speed automatic transmission for 4x4 models; a six-speed manual transmission (4x2 and 4x4 models); and an Aisin six-speed automatic transmission for 4x2 Compass models.
