2018 Jeep Compass
The new 2018 Jeep Compass is sleek, classy, durable, spacious, and eye-catching. It’s also one of the trusted brand’s most affordable models. Customers seeking a Jeep that has more cargo space than the compact Renegade—but not quite as much as the Grand Cherokee—may find the Compass the perfect fit for their needs.
The 2018 model is monumentally improved, offers a more comfortable ride than ever before, and is furnished with new exclusive Uconnect infotainment system technology. This platform allows you to access your car’s features with a smartphone or the built-in 8.4-inch touchscreen dashboard display.

The 2018 Jeep Compass has it all. It’s large enough to store anything you might need for a vacation or camping adventure. It’s powerful and versatile enough to handle any terrain and practically any task. Not only is it versatile in purpose, there’s a model for every type of driver. From the inexpensive Sport to the luxury Limited and the off-road adventurer Trailhawk, you’re sure to find a Compass that fits your budget and your needs.
The 2018 Jeep Compass is loaded with the latest technologies to assist the driver, provide the comfort of a luxury SUV, and give you access to a first-class multimedia system. The Compass is now equipped with Uconnect, which allows the driver or passenger to control all of the features of the Compass through the touchscreen on the dashboard, through a smartphone, or via voice command technology for hands-free convenience.
The Compass comes standard with a state-of-the-art airbag system that deploys seven airbags in the event of a collision. Chrysler’s new LaneSense technology alerts the driver when he or she is slipping outside of their lane by measuring the vehicle’s position within lane boundaries and alerting the driver when they begin to drift.
The Compass also comes with Forward Collision Warning and Active Braking. The system alerts the driver if it senses a potential frontal collision and automatically applies the brakes if the driver does not respond in a timely fashion.
The Parkview Rear Backup Camera gives you an extra set of eyes in the back of your vehicle, making it much easier to reverse without having to crank your neck 180 degrees to ensure that you are backing out safely.
The Passive Entry and Keyless Enter ‘n Go feature allows owners to unlock the car without a key using fingerprint recognition technology. This feature also uses a push-button ignition, so there’s no more hassle of fumbling for your keys on a dark, cold night. Just open the door right up, sit down, buckle up, and press start. You’re off to the races.
The Compass is so well equipped, it basically drives itself. You don’t even have to turn on your windshield wipers anymore. The 2018 Jeep Compass has Rain-Sensing windshield wipers that automatically keep your window free of rain and debris without you having to raise a finger. The blades know when to speed up and slow down by sensing the amount of water that accumulates on the glass. The Compass’ side mirrors are also heated to avoid letting ice and fog obscure your vision when maneuvering on the roadway.
Even the headlamps of the Compass know when it becomes dark outside and turns themselves on (if the function is set to active). This is just one of many new safety features that has kept Jeep at the forefront of the industry as one of the most trusted brands for safety and security.
Onlookers can’t help but do a double take at the 2018 Jeep Compass. The Compass exudes a mixture of refinement and style that puts it in a class of its own. No doubt you’ll get some open-mouthed stares as you cruise around in your new Compass, so just get used to the attention.
While the exterior is like eye candy to the random observer, the passenger gets to experience the real beauty and class of the new and improved Compass. The Limited model comes with black leather front seats and sharp but subtle cattle-tan accent stitching, heated seats with adjustable temperature, and eight-direction motorized adjustable seating to provide customizable comfort for passengers. Even the steering wheel heats up to avoid ice-cold hands while you drive to work on a frosty winter day. The dual-zone automatic temperature control feature allows the driver and passenger to each select a temperature that’s comfortable for them. The attention to detail that Jeep provides is second to none. Everything in the vehicle’s interior screams craftsmanship, making each ride or commute a relaxing, comfortable experience.
If performance is what you’re looking for, the Jeep Compass Trailhawk model is just what you need. Guaranteed to perform like a champ in just about any off-road situation, the Trailhawk has state-of-the-art maneuverability, traction, ground clearance, articulation, and even water-treading capability. It can take on any terrain—rock, sand, snow, mud, or gravel, there is no road too treacherous for this Jeep.
The Trailhawk’s Selec-Terrain Traction Management System, combined with the Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 system, makes the Compass a beast on the tarmac and off. The Selec-Terrain System has different settings for off-road domination: auto, snow, rock, sand, or mud. Simply switch the settings depending on the terrain, and let her rip. In order to optimize efficiency, the Active Drive System has a rear axle disconnect that allows the driver the ability to switch between two- and four-wheel drive with no hiccups whenever 4×4 functions are unnecessary.
The Trailhawk also comes with Hill Descent Control, a safety feature that automatically manages throttle, speed, and braking on the steep hills and winding roads of a drive, letting the driver focus on steering and traffic.
All Compass models come with a 2.4-liter Multi-Air Engine. The higher-end models are equipped with the Stop/Start function and 6-speed automatic transmission. The Sport is only available with manual transmission.
