The Jeep Compass may be the little sibling of the Jeep Cherokee, but it definitely knows how to play with the big kids in terms of of-road capabilities – a quality hard to find in most compact crossovers. Off-road skills are especially excellent when opting for the Freedom II Off-Road package. While it is just an optional add-on, consumers will be glad to find out that it can be tacked on to all Compass trim levels, so no one gets left out out of the fun.
This package adds adventure to the Compass with a hefty list of content, such as 17-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, an upgraded all-wheel-drive system with simulated low-range gearing, skid plates, brake-lock differential, tow hooks and heavy-duty alternator; there is also an engine oil cooler, which is perfect for those who hit the trails often, because it will help ensure a longer engine life. There's no wimpy spare dummy tires for the Crossover either, instead just a full-size spare – a perk all consumers will applaud.
|Engine Size:||2.0 L|

When consumers step inside the 2016 Compass, they'll find a solid travel companion in terms of seating and technology. Most all consumers will find comfort in the front seats and adequate support even for long drives. Technology is good, too, with a range of items, like Bluetooth connectivity, CD sound system with satellite radio and auxiliary audio jack, and even a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with hard-drive music storage and navigation.
What will stand out most to consumers in the Compass's interior is its clever features. One, in particular, being the optional speakers that can flip down and out from the raised liftgate – a major bonus for those who plan to be beach bound at the first hint of warm weather.
For the qualities of a Jeep with the pros of a lower price tag, the 2016 Compass makes an excellent choice – on-road and off. To learn more about financing options and to take a test drive, visit us at our dealership in Emmaus, PA at 501 State Avenue.
