All-New Jeep Compass Starts At $22,090

Jeep are prepping the launch of their new generation Compass in North America, where the first examples are expected to arrive at dealerships next week.

Serving as a replacement to both the previous model as well as the Patriot, this new compact SUV can be had from $22,090 in the base 2WD Sport trim level, delivery included, AutoNews writes.

The cheapest AWD model carries a $1,500 premium, while the mid-range Latitude will become available from $25,390. Furthermore, the all-wheel driven Trailhawk has a starting price of $29,690, while the range-topping Limited AWD will set its future buyers back at least $30,990. All prices are said to include shipping.

Built for the United States at the company’s Toluca plant, in Mexico, the 2017 Jeep Compass is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, producing 180 horses and 175 pound-feet (237 Nm) of torque. It works in conjunction with either a six-speed manual, a six-speed automatic or a nine-speed automatic gearbox.

Jeep says that the most fuel efficient Compass is the 2WD model when coupled to a manual transmission, returning 23/32/26 mpg US (10.23/7.35/9.05 l/100 km) in city/highway/combined, thus making it the second most fuel efficient Jeep after the Renegade. As for the AWD manual Compass, it’s EPA-rated at 22/31/25 mpg (10.69/7.59/9.41 l/100 km).

At the same time, the 9-speed auto version of the vehicle is rated at 22/30/25 mpg (10.69/7.84/9.41 l/100 km) and 21/29/24 mpg (11.2/8.11/9.8 l/100 km) in city/highway/combined, for the 2WD and 4WD versions, respectively.

    They could bring V6 Pentastar inside as a Limited or Summit option. Without it its just boring small family car.

      Much better looking than the old compass and new current cherokee IMO. Resembles the Grand cherokee just enough and if they do bring a V6 to the line it it will sell big. I doubt they put a V6 in it though.

    • BqWsRe

      No one ever said they wont in the following model years. And euros dont like V6s, even if they are much better

    • BqWsRe

      Still cooler than the competition.

      Oh, and people seem to buy “boring family cars”…

  • Mikestroh

    Needs a Turbo 2.0 with at Least 220 Hp for the premium version. Then is would’ve been interesting.

    • dlinfl

      I agree, they have a new 2.0l that they decided not to use. That killed any interest I had in buying one.

      • BqWsRe

        Welcome to globalization.

        But they also want you to have a reason to ante up extra cash for a larger, more “premium” model. Business.

      The Hurricane unit will eventually be produced once the new Wrangler gets off production. That engine will have a boost to it giving it the power it deserves.

  • SgtBeavis

    Such a massive improvement from the previous generation. Of course that’s not saying much since a Yugo would have been an improvement.

    That said, this design needs to lose that chrome bar across the roof line and C pillar. It does absolutely nothing to improve this car’s looks. It is actually holding it back from being an outstanding design. I’m not a fan of the blacked out roof either. This is certainly a case of where less would be MUCH more…

  • OdysseyTag

    Like this upgrade. Definitely seems more rugged and accomplished compared to it’s predecessor. I do somehow miss Jeep’s whole ’rounded headlamp’ era but the way forward in terms of design seems promising non the less.

  • I never got where Compass and Patriot are in the Jeep Range and what the competition is.

    • BqWsRe

      Doesnt matter, the new model will sell like hotcakes. Great Jeep looks finally and functional like a Jeep should be.

      • BqWsRe

        The new Grand Cherokee will separate itself from this more.

    Waiting for the Compass Hellcat with 707 hp inside and 600 ft-lb.

  • smartacus

    why didn’t they use a better engine?
    don’t they have a 2.0T?

    180HP and 175 lb.ft. of torque from a 2.4 boat anchor is unacceptable for 2017.
    Even a Fiesta ST is getting a 1.5 triple with 197HP and 214 lb.ft.

    • ME

      They will install the Hurricane unit first in the Wrangler.

  • U8INIT

    Super glad it looks the way it looks…SRT mine thou and we good.

  • dumblikeyou2

    Ugh, that 9-speed and 2.4 are dreadful apart and together.

    Best looking Jeep inside out! This will sell very well.
