2021 Jeep Compass Wilmington NC

2021 Jeep Compass at Hendrick Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

The Jeep Compass is an SUV that's hard to get a read on, and we mean that in the best way! It's a smaller SUV, but it packs a punch in terms of power, features, and off-road prowess. Also, there is a lot of space, particularly in the back seat, so you don't have to worry about having enough space for your family. The materials are also plush and soft so that everyone will be comfortable. For off-roading, the Compass comes with a Trailhawk trim, which adds several fun features such as underbody skid plates, all-terrain tires, and a lifted suspension. We have a lot to say about the 2021 Jeep Compass. Please continue reading to find out all it has to offer!

What is under the hood of the Compass?

All trims of the 2021 Jeep Compass come with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that pumps out an impressive 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel-drive is the default setup, but you can get all-wheel-drive on all trims except the Trailhawk, where it comes standard. What kind of transmission you get depends on if you go with the front-wheel or all-wheel-drive. If you get front-wheel-drive, the engine will pair with a six-speed automatic, though if you go with all-wheel-drive, the Compass has a nine-speed automatic. 

What can you tell me about the Compass's features?

No matter what trim level of the Compass you go with, you will be treated with a ton of fun features. Starting things is the base Sport, which comes with automatic dual-zone climate control, steel wheels, a 7-inch touchscreen with USB ports, a six-speaker sound system, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. If you decide to go with the Latitude, you will get more terrific features such as alloy wheels, roof rails, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless entry and ignition, automatic headlights, and foglights.

Finally, the Lane Keeping Assist System will help steer the Compass back into its lane if it happens to drift outside the painted lines.
