What are the powertrain options for the 2020 Jeep Compass?
With a best-in-class highway fuel economy rating of up to 32 highway mpg, the 2020 Jeep Compass’s 2.4-liter Tigershark 4-cylinder engine makes use of a MultiAir 2 valve train system to offer 180 horsepower, 175 lb-ft of torque, and a towing capacity of up to 2,000 pounds. This subcompact crossover SUV comes in 2- and 4-wheel-drive with your choice of three transmissions: class-exclusive nine-speed automatic transmission for 4×4 models, six-speed automatic transmission for 4×2 models, and six-speed manual transmission for 4×2 and 4×4 models. The Trailhawk trim sports exceptional off-road capabilities thanks to the Selec-Terrain Traction Management System, and enough suspension travel to soak up big bumps and allow for minimal lean in hard curves—not to mention a 20:1 crawl ratio that lets the 2020 Jeep Compass traverse boulders and uneven terrain with ease. Combined with the Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 System, you get outstanding on-road traction and dominating off-road performance.
Jeep Compass design and features
New to the 2020 models is a velvet red pearl coat exterior paint color, as well as gloss black exterior mirrors, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross path detection, ParkSense rear park assist system, forward collision warning-plus, lane departure warning-plus, auto high-beam headlamps, adaptive cruise control, advanced brake assist, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a vehicle theft security alarm. Depending on the trim, the 2020 Jeep Compass offers 16, 18, and 19-inch painted aluminum wheels in a variety of colors and styles, and a sunroof for readily accessible fresh air. The Sport and Latitude trims include fog lamps to help light your way during hard-to-see driving conditions, as well as body-color power heated exterior mirrors to help melt ice and snow and improve visibility. The Latitude trim remains unique in that it provides a windshield wiper de-icer, remote vehicle start, and alloy wheels. The Trailhawk trim sits up higher than the conventional Compass, and has added features like protective skidplates and a full-size spare tire. It doubles-down on off-road ruggedness with increased ground clearance, a blackout anti-glare hood, and red front and rear tow hooks. All models include space for five passengers and a cargo square footage of 59.8 cubic feet.
New to the interior of the 2020 models are Alpine premium speakers and luxury seating. With the Sport trim, backing up is a breeze with the ParkView rear back up camera, which displays an image of the area behind the vehicle on the 7-inch Uconnect touchscreen. It also features on-screen dynamic gridlines to help guide you through tight parking spots and other tough places. The Sport trim even offers automatic dual-zone climate control, height-adjustable front seats, a 60/40-split rear bench, first- and second-row USB ports, and a six-speaker sound system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. Compared to the Sport, the Compass Latitude has rear air vents, upgraded cloth and simulated leather seat upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless ignition and entry, satellite radio, and more option packages. You can even enjoy fun and freedom all year round thanks to an available Cold Weather Group, which includes a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, a windshield wiper de-icer, and Remote Vehicle Start. The Compass Limited, however, is the most comprehensively equipped. Standout features include remote engine start, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a color information display, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, and a 115-volt household-style power outlet. Navigate the Uconnect interface to access Apple CarPlay support or Android Auto integration and use your smartphone capabilities without ever having to take your eyes off the road.
What type of safety features does the Jeep Compass have?
Equipped with over 70 standard and available safety and security features, the 2020 Jeep Compass is engineered to inspire confidence with its every innovation. It yields available blind spot monitoring which will alert you if another vehicle is traveling in one of your blind spot zones, and rear cross path detection that will warn you of unseen vehicles when backing up. Each trim offers a high-strength steel body structure which helps maximize crash protection and optimizes vehicle dynamics and weight. Eight standard advanced airbags—including supplemental side-curtain front and rear airbags and driver and front passenger knee-bolster airbags—work together to help provide protection to vehicle occupants. The Compass’s LaneSense lane departure warning with lane keep assist alerts you with visual and audible warnings during unintentional lane drifts. If you don’t respond, LaneSense will help move your vehicle back into its lane. The adaptive cruise control with stop and go automatically adjusts your driving speed to maintain a pre-selected distance from the vehicle ahead. It can even bring your vehicle to a complete stop if necessary, without driver input. So go ahead and drive your Jeep Compass with ease, as these features will work to keep you and your vehicle safe.
