The redesigned 2017 Jeep Compass is much improved over its predecessor. It's a good choice if you want a comfortable and affordable crossover SUV that can still handle a dirt road. Worth noting, the previous version of the Compass will also be sold as a 2017 model alongside the new version for a short time.That's right --- there are two Jeep Compass models for 2017.Get the one that looks like the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee, the overall driving experience is much improved. If you're looking for a comfortable and affordable crossover SUV that can also get you out and into nature, the new Compass works well.Jeep made the new Compass more comfortable and enjoyable to drive on the street, where it knows that owners will spend most of their time.You'll like the Compass' easy-to-operate Uconnect infotainment system and the 27 cubic feet of rear cargo space. Fold down the 60/40-split rear seats and there's almost 60 cubic feet of space; plus, the legroom in back is sufficient for tall passengers. Spacewise, the Compass splits the difference between Jeep's smaller Renegad and larger Cherokee. Of course, it's still a Jeep. Most owners will never need the enhanced off-roading hardware available on the Trailhawk model, but it's nice to know it's there if you want to get into a muddy campsite or have to get out of a snowed-in parking lot.There are two Jeep Compass versions for sale in the 2017 model year. At the start, Jeep carried over the 2016 Compass unchanged. Midway through, though, Jeep stopped selling the old one and introduced a fully redesigned Compass.The redesigned Compass features a stronger chassis, revised suspension tuning and simplified powertrain choices. The exterior and interior designs are completely new and follow the looks established by the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee. Other highlights for the new Compass include new advanced driver safety aids, an improved infotainment system and a new Trailhawk trim level featuring enhanced off-road capability.The 2016 trim lines will continue: Sport, Latitude (Longitude, outside the US), Limited, and Trailhawk. Only the Trailhawk is "Trail Rated"The new Jeep Compass is a continuation of the original concept --- a tough-bodied, compact crossover with one model engineered for off-roading and three for bad weather, all in a Grand Cherokee-style skin. It carries the Chrysler "Tigershark" 2.4 liter engine, with manual and automatic transmissions, with a two-liter turbo four supposedly a year or three off.Power ratings are 180 hp at 6,400 rpm and 175 lb-ft of torque at 3,900 rpm, and a peak towing capacity of 2,000 lb (with tow package and AWD only). Electronic stop-start comes with both automatic transmissions, and includes a secondary battery and upgraded components. The engine has coil-on-plug ignition with dual plugs, and an automatic tensioner on the single-belt accessory drive.There is just one engine, with three different transmissions. A Fiat six-speed manual is standard on the Sport and Latitude, with FWD or AWD; a six-speed Aisin is optional with FWD. All wheel drive Compasses can be ordered with the optional nine speed automatic (not a six speed automatic); the Trailhawk is nine-speed only.The nine-speed goes from 4.71:1 in first to 0.48 in ninth, with a final drive ratio of 3.73 (Trailhawk's final ratio is 4.33). The stick-shift has a 6.68 gear ratio spread and 4.44 final drive ratio; the six-speed automatic has a spread of 6.64 and a 3.50 final drive ratio. Outside the US, buyers can also get a 1.4 liter turbocharged four, six-or-seven-speed DDCT (the latter only in China), 2.0 TigerShark, and 1.6 and 2.0 liter Fiat MultiJet diesels.Jeep Active Drive (AWD) is optional on all but Trailhawk; Jeep Active Drive Low is only used on Trailhawk, where it's standard. The system has a fully disconnecting front wheel drive mode, automatic engagement, and a variable wet clutch in the rear drive module; there is programming for off-road, low-traction, aggressive-launch, and fast-turn driving. Both systems have a a neutral position; the Trailhawk has a 20:1 crawl ratio in low gear as well.Terrain response is automatic. There is no center differential, and both systems rely on the power transfer unit (PTU); they have yaw correction to help with both understeer and oversteer. The system can divert full power to a single wheel.Only the Trailhawk has skid plates; those cover the fuel tank, transfer case, transmission, and front suspension. We don't recommend off-roading with other Jeep Compass models, even with AWD.The Selec-Terrain system provides five models, which work with the Selec-Speed Control and Hill Descent Control systems. The modes are Auto, Snow, Sand, Mud, and, only on Trailhawk, Rock.The stability control (ESC) system is off in low gear, fully on with Auto and Snow, and in partial mode for Sport and Sand/Mud. Partial mode reduces traction and stability control, while keeping roll mitigation and antilock brakes on.According to Jeep, the Compass was engineered within the United States; its "small-wide" architecture was based on Fiat's prior small-car setup, but was heavily modified. The Compass will be made on four continents and sold in over a hundred countries. The architecture has modular, interchangeable components with the ability to change the wheelbase, track, overhang, length, and width; thus, the Compass is 2.6 inches longer than the Renegade.The unibody Compass is made with over 65% high-strength steel; the upper body structure and subframe were created as a single unit, and adhesives were used to increase stiffness. The cradle is isolated on AWD Compasses (not on FWD), whichi also have front and rear steel crossmembers and aluminum knuckles --- which may factor into why the FWD isn't rated for towing.The Compass uses a Chapman (modified MacPherson) suspension, with 8.2 inches of rear wheel articulation and 6.7 inches of front wheel articulation. Koni front and rear struts have frequency selective damping, which filters out high-frequency inputs from rough surfaces, making the ride smoother without sacrificing control. The front crossmember both adds rigidity and a third load line to help in crashes, while a new "split" shock absorber mounting splits road vibrations to improve acoustics. The rear cradle is solated for the same reason; it also includes attachment points for the lateral links and half-shafts.The steering is electrically powered, with the assist within the column; power assistance is changed based on conditions. The steering torque system autaomtically corrects for surfaces with low grip, and is integrated with the stability control setup to help in split-traction, torque steer, and crowned-road situations.Sport model tires are 215/65R16s, CrossContact LX Sport or Crugen Premium; the Latitude and Limited come with 225/60R17 Crugen Premium or Destination LE2 radials. The Trailhawk comes with Falken WildPeak H/T 215/65R17 all-season tires.Noise was cut back using structural design, as well as frame-under-glass door construction with triple seals and acoustic wheel well liners.As oh2o predicted in Allpar, the Compass will have an 8.4" UConnect touch screen stereo option (with 5 and 7 inch units as well), unlike the Renegade's top five-inch screen. This is the new generation system, and the 7 and 8.4 inch systems include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Navigation seems to require the 8.4 screen, but all are faster than prior units. The touch screen has a customizable menu bar, and you can use "Send & Go" to send destinations from a phone to the car. The new-ish satellite "Guardian" service provides an SOS button on the mirror, an Assist button to get help for minor issues (e.g. running out of fuel), and lets people start the car and set the temperature remotely.The steering wheel has integrated audio, voice, and speed controls; and all models get a media hub with USB and auxiliary inputs, with an extra USB port on the back of the center console, facing the rear seats. The optional Beats audio system has nine speakers (four 6x9s in the doors, two one-inchers in the rear doors, two 3.5s in the dash, and an eight-inch woofer), with a 12-channel amp.A 3.5" trip computer is standard, a seven-inch unit optional, also as predicted. Either system provides custom options, and provide turn by turn navigation (if equipped). The 7-inch system also shows text messages.Jeep stylists pointed out the chrome trim that wraps around the Compass and its glossy black painted roof (not a decal, but actual paint) as unique features. The chrome slots of the grille are in a gloss-black background; headlamp bezels are also black, and turn signals and daytime running lights are both separate so they can be seen more easily. The optional dual-pane sunroof provides an extra-large opening.The rear spoiler was designed for aerodynamics; the rear wiper is mounted in the glass. Colors are Redline Red, Spitfire Orange, Laser Blue Pearl, Olive Green, Jazz Blue Pearl Coat, Billet Silver Metallic Clear Coat, Granite Crystal Metallic Clear Coat, Diamond Black Crystal Pearl Coat, Pearl White Tri-Coat (Limited only), Bright White Tri-Coat, and Rhino Clear Coat (Limited and Trailhawk only).Interior touches include contrast threads in the stitching, vinyl-wrapped door panels, soft-touch center armrest, and chrome vent bezels. Storage includes a mesh pocket in the front passenger footwell for small electronics and a multi-level rear cargo floor that brings up PT Cruiser memories. There are five interior color setups, but they seem to generally be tied to price classes:On all models, the compact spare is optional (except Trailhawk, which gets a full size spare).Sport is the base, with black door handles, manual transmission (optional automatic), clear glass (unless buyers get a package), manual headlamps, no fog lamps, black mirrors (still power adjustable and heated), no roof rails except with a package, 16 inch steel wheels, the small trip computer, ai
