2017 Jeep Compass: A New Focus On Performance
Posted at Wed, Oct 24, 2018 5:47 PM
It’s hard not to get excited when Jeep introduces something different. The 2017 Jeep Compass has stepped up its style in such a way that it seems like a whole new SUV. Still affordable, this budget-friendly ride takes you further than ever before.
For better handling, a new build utilizes Jeep’s small wide 4×4 architecture. This provides for improved on-road driving dynamics. A six-speed manual, a six-speed automatic, and a new nine-speed automatic offer three levels of precision. The new stop-start system pauses the engine at redlights. A 2.4-liter Tigershark engine is rated for 180 horsepower and 175 lb.-ft. of torque. At its toughest, the Compass can tow 2,000 pounds. In addition to front-wheel drive, you can choose Jeep Active Drive or go for maximum adventure with the Trailhawk 4×4. Learn about your financing options at Bice Jeep dealer Montgomery AL.

It also adds hill descent control and Selec-Speed Control, allowing you to keep things slow and steady on the trail. A special power take-off unit enhances fuel economy. An extra inch of height and special underbody protections help it ford up to 19 inches of water.
