The Jeep brand has a storied legacy tied intrinsically to off-road vehicles and capabilities. While they might not all be as iconic or capable as the legendary Wrangler, every single vehicle on the Jeep lineup is equipped and ready to tackle off-road conditions. While its own legacy doesn’t stretch back as far as some of its contemporaries, the Jeep Compass is working hard on its own reputation. It was first introduced back in 2007, making it one of the youngest vehicles on the lineup behind only the Renegade and Gladiator. We’re thrilled to be able to offer the latest version, the 2023 Jeep Compass, to shoppers right here in Fort Scott, Kansas.
A few years into its second generation, and even a couple of years after a mid-generation facelift, Jeep engineers have given the Compass plenty of updates about which to get excited. This includes things like new advanced safety features, which we’ll touch on to the right, new 17” wheel designs and exterior color offerings plus a few other feature shifts between trim levels. The biggest update, though, is its all-new engine.
This year, Jeep has introduced one of the most technologically advanced engines not just in the Compass or on the Jeep lineup, but in the entire automotive industry. The new engine is a 2.0L turbocharged inline four-cylinder featuring direct injection and tethered to an eight-speed automatic transmission and Jeep Active Drive 4x4. The engine can generate up to 200 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque.
The Jeep Compass is packed with outstanding safety and security features, including a few new advanced technologies like drowsy driver detection, rear seat reminder alert and security alarm. All three of these features are standard across the board. They’re joined by features like Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, Pedestrian/Cyclist Automatic Emergency Braking and many others.
