The 2017 Jeep Compass is another addition to the elite vehicles produced by the car manufacturers. The midsized SUV is expected to beat all others in its kind for more reasons than one. It is easy to understand how this SUV can emerge as the best slowly but surely.

According to Consumer Reports, the midsized SUV market is ever-growing and Jeep can easily top this category by introducing its Compass lineup. The 2017 Jeep Compass comes in four different trims to suit everyone's requirements. It comes in Compass Sport, Compass Latitude, Compass Limited and Compass Trailhawk which is considered the most powerful and robust of all.

The Compass Trailhawk is also extremely powerful for being able to tow up to 2,000 lbs. It also has special rock-crawling gearing, a one-inch boost in ride height, skid plates, and the front and rear tow hooks. It also geared up with 17-inch off-road tires.

The standard power of 2017 Jeep Compass comes from 180-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder. Jeep also promises that the new Compass will return to up to 30 miles per gallon. If indeed Jeep delivers, it will significantly be considered an upgrade over the 22mpg overall measured from last tested model.


The all-new Compass also comes with a lot more comfort features such as an open-air dual-pane sunroof, power liftgate, and dual-zone automatic climate system. To amp up the comfort features, both the seats and steering wheel are heated.

The 2017 Jeep Compass also is considered one of the safest of all midsized SUVs for having a forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear-cross traffic alert. As a standard, a rear-view camera is also included.

One of the most impressive updates to the new Compass is its excellent infotainment system called Uconnect. It does include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also comes with choices of 5.0, 7.0, or 8.4-inch touch screen.

As added by The Car Connection, the 2017 Jeep Compass promises to erase the notion of its first generation being as one of the most unpopular crossovers in the history of the company. As it is first sold in the first half of 2017, promises to deliver and up-to-date and much more improved performance.

The 2017 Jeep Compass' suspension is one that is noteworthy, different from its predecessor. The Compass progresses from the all-weather crossover to trail-ready SUV which gives it more unlimited performance in any available road conditions and weather conditions ever-present. It is definitely expected to do well as it gets officially released in few months from today.
