Vehicle Profile: 2020 Jeep® Compass
No SUV embodies adventure like a Jeep® does, but certain vehicles offer just as much adventure in town as they do in the wilderness. In particular, the 2020 Jeep® Compass balances suburban practicality with rural capability. Check out the capability, comfort, and technology that the Compass brings to your everyday life.
Ready to follow your own route
Being a true utility vehicle at heart, the refined Compass still delivers the capability you expect from the brand. Rather than focusing on power, the Compass’ engine prioritizes efficiency, conserving fuel so you can travel further into the unknown on your journeys. Its 2.4-liter Tigershark® engine utilizes a MultiAir® 2 valve train system that yields a best-in-class highway fuel economy rating: 32 mpg, according to EPA estimates.*
Whether you prefer the manual or automatic transmission, the Compass’ powertrain yields enough horsepower to tow up to 2,000 pounds — enough muscle to trailer your boat or ATVs. Its available 4x4 drivetrain, high air intakes, and flexible articulation equip the Compass for overcoming flooded fields, rocky inclines and mud bogs along your path.
Relax even in challenging conditions
The 2020 Compass can take you through messy terrain and ugly weather, but you’ll still feel at ease in the comfortable cabin. The 2020 Compass boasts spacious accommodations for five passengers across two rows of ergonomic seats, which are wrapped in optional soft-touch, ventilated leather. Whether you’re driving or riding in the rear row, the dual-zone automatic temperature control will precisely adjust the air where you’re sitting to match your comfort level. And on cold mornings, the optional heated front seats and steering wheel make it easier for you to leave your warm house.
Stay connected when you’re on the road
Even when you’re far from civilization, you’ll still stay connected to the digital world thanks to the Uconnect® technology on the 2020 Compass. Through this system, you can synch your smartphone to the SUV to access your apps through the available 8.4-inch touch screen. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ give you the means to integrate with a couple swift taps. Stream your favorite music or podcasts by accessing the optional 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. You can connect eight devices at once — almost enough to let every passenger connect two devices.
Gain greater access to your Compass through the available Uconnect app with subscription to SiriusXM Guardian™. You can use your phone to remotely lock the doors, start the engine, find where you parked, call for help and send directions from your phone to the SUV’s GPS system.
The Compass’ technology extends to safety and driving assistance, too. The family-oriented SUV presents more than 70 standard and available safety and security features for your use. The Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking system in particular is a must-have. It monitors how closely and quickly you’re approaching the car in front of you and will automatically apply the brakes to avoid a fender bender or serious collision.
Strap in and take a ride in the 2020 Jeep® Compass. It’s the SUV you need to start your journey.
*EPA-estimated MPG with 2.4L and six-speed manual transmission, 4x2. Actual mileage may vary.
