2018 Jeep Compass near Killeen TexasView Inventory
Jeep has always been synonymous with off-road capability, and you don't need a huge vehicle to enjoy such a benefit. Since 2007, the Compass has been produced as the smallest SUV in the brand's lineup, thereby making it the go-to vehicle for budget-oriented buyers. For the 2018 model year, the Jeep Compass' manufacturer, Chrysler, makes no major changes, with the nameplate having entered its second production cycle the year before. The 2018 Jeep Compass is split into four trims: Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk, and Limited.
Designated as a compact crossover SUV and with 126.7 cubic feet of passenger volume, the 2018 Jeep Compass has a peak occupancy of five people. The Trailhawk stays apart from the other trims with its red interior stitching accents. For optimizing luxury and comfort, go with the Limited, which has exclusive front-seat and steering-wheel heating capability, leather upholstery with perforated inserts, and a driver's seat with 8-way power adjustability and 4-way power lumbar support. For comfort and convenience, the 2018 Compass presents remote keyless entry, Bluetooth wireless technology, media center electronics storage, an electronic vehicle information center, a 3.5-inch monochromatic driver information cluster display, push-button engine start, six-speaker audio, and a Uconnect infotainment interface represented with a 5-inch touchscreen. The Trailhawk and Limited have additions and enhancements such as dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8.4-inch touchscreen in lieu of the 5-inch, a one-year trial subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone-based control, and a 7-inch color driver info cluster display instead of the monochromatic 3.5-inch. Remote vehicle start and an auto-dimming rearview mirror are exclusive to the top-level Limited.
The 2018 Jeep Compass has a more sculpted look than the first-generation model. The halogen quad headlights on the SUV incorporate daytime running lamps to make you more visible to other drivers. If you go with the Latitude or higher, the headlights can automatically turn on during low-visibility conditions, and fog and cornering lights join them to provide more penetrating and expansive illumination. The power-adjustable side mirrors have heating and manual folding ability; turn signals are added on those of the Trailhawk and Limited. On top, Chrysler adds roof rails on the Latitude and higher, and the Trailhawk and Limited have a black roof for adding covert style to the exterior. The Sport has black 16-inch steel wheels. Silver-painted aluminum wheels and polished-black pocket aluminum wheels-both 17 inches-are on the Latitude and Trailhawk, respectively. Eighteen-inch polished-black pocket aluminum wheels are reserved for the Limited. As the trim most primed for off-road adventures, the Trailhawk has additions to further protect the body from damage, such as skid plates that cover the front suspension, fuel tank, rear fascia, transfer case, and transmission.
For interior quietness and cushioning from road turbulence, the 2018 Compass has a MacPherson strut front suspension and a Chapman strut rear suspension. The suspension on the Trailhawk, though, is tuned to optimize off-road performance, and it has a significantly increased ground clearance to keep it further away from potentially damaging objects. And speed-sensitive electric power steering provides sports-like handling and ease of executing parking maneuvers.
The 2018 Jeep Compass is powered by the 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder MultiAir engine, which produces 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. On the Sport and Latitude, the engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. On the Trailhawk and Limited, Chrysler joins the engine with a 9-speed automatic, which is accompanied by a transaxle shifter to enable manual gear shifting. Also, the engine on the Trailhawk and Limited is accompanied by start and stop technology, which cuts down engine idling-and consequently boosts fuel efficiency-by shutting it down when coming to a stop and turning it back on when the brake pedal is released. The Sport, Latitude, and Limited give you the choice of going with a front-wheel drivetrain or a four-wheel-drive system. By contrast, the Trailhawk comes with a standard four-wheel drivetrain. That system-officially known as Selec-Terrain®-comes with five customizable settings (i.e., Auto, Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud, and Rock) to ensure that the Compass can handle virtually any type of terrain or road condition.
For safety, the 2018 Jeep Compass has a rearview camera, hill start assist, all-speed traction control, electronic vehicle stability control with roll mitigation, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, trailer sway damping, nine airbags, camera, and a security system that combines remote keyless entry with engine immobilization. The Trailhawk is the only variant that has hill descent control, and a panic alarm for bolstering the anti-theft system is exclusive to the Limited.
