Capability Of The 2018 Jeep Compass
The all-new for 2018 Jeep Compass is a strong, reliable, and fun contender in the world of off-roading as well as in today's landscape of highway-speed commuters. It can have all manner of features you can depend on, like available heated exterior mirrors, a frequency-sensitive damping front/rear strut system, rain-sensing wipers, and both Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control. That list continues with an available adjustable cargo floor, a button-operated power liftgate, and the traditional trapezoidal wheel arches Jeep has been known for since 1941!

General Layout Of The 2018 Compass
The 5-seat 2018 Compass spreads the wealth out into four models: Sport, Limited, Latitude, and the Trailhawk. Not to be left out, a limited-edition appears, the Altitude model, that has a black roof, united exhaust tips, and alloy wheels sized 18" by 7" in black. All four of the traditional models have a 13.5-gallon tank for gasoline, four halogen headlights, Electronic Stability Control, a DRL illumination system, and one of three transmission elections. The 2018 Jeep Compass was methodically modernized mid-year into the more global-ready "small-wide 4x4 architecture" standard which accentuates the Compass vehicle's now more responsive suspension, braking, and safety systems. Additionally, the Apple CarPlay & Android Auto app-compatible Uconnect system ranges from 7- to 8.4-inches (otherwise 5-inches without app compatibility). Look as well for striking exterior colors like Rhino Clear Coat (Limited/Trailhawk), Laser Blue Pearl Coat, Spitfire Orange (Trailhawk), and more!

Capable Powertrains, Fierce Features, And Tenacious Off-Roading Systems Galore, Oh My!
First off, powering this vehicle at the heart of things is a 2.4L Tigershark MultiAir 2 engine that has a Best-in-Class 4x4 highway fuel economy with the 6-speed manual in the 4x4 setup. This engine achieves 180-hp and 175 lb-ft of torque and can be equipped to tow up to 2,000-pounds. Transmissions include a 6-speed manual (4x2 & 4x4), a 6-speed automatic (4x2), or a class-limited 9-speed automatic (4x4) while Stop/Start technology is made standard within the automatic transmission. There are two potential 4x4 systems to acquire: Jeep Active Drive or Jeep Active Drive Low. The initial one has a rear axle disconnect coupled to the 4-mode (Auto, Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud) Selec-Terrain Traction Management System, and the latter one is on the Trailhawk to install a 5th Rock Mode into the Selec-Terrain Traction Management System and accesses a formidable 20:1 crawl ratio! A higher than-the-norm air intake works well for watery and dusty situations, as do insulated electrical connections and heightened body sealing, which comes in handy when gunning it through up to 19-inches of water! The Jeep Compass in 2018 also rocks a diminutive turning radius of 35.3 feet, while also having the wheel articulation capability to traverse actual rocks easily (as in, if a wheel comes off the ground, the other wheels compensate well with their connection to the ground). In terms of safety, the Compass is fully outfitted, it's almost like driving a spaceship with over 70 safety and security points! For example, there are the old standard of a high-strength steel frame and airbags, but there is also Rear Cross path Detection, LaneSense Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, the Uconnect Voice Command functions that allow music and phone control via your voice, blind spot monitoring, and even SiriusXM Guardian is among the list of possible features to get for safety!

Trailhawk Model Capability
With best-in-class Trail Rated 4x4 capacity, up to 2,000-lbs of towing supremacy, an additional Rock Mode on the Selec-Terrain system, an extra inch in height than other models, and dragon-scale armor (in the form of skid plates underneath), the Trailhawk positively is way beyond the rest of the outdoor pack! It also throws in 3 red tow hooks, 17-inch off-road-ready tires, a rear locker, and a possible Active Drive Lock 4x4 System (with a 4-wheel Low mode). This model also has a 24.4-degree breakover angle, a 30.3-degree approach angle, and a 33.6-degree departure angle-- ensuring its success at surmounting pretty much anything in its path.

In Conclusion
For those skeptics out there thinking this is just another SUV that looks like an off-roader but can't handle an errant pebble or two, prepare to stand corrected! Certainly, this is much more on the capable side than most vehicles, Jeep saw to that in 2018, and you would be wise to consider it within your shortlist of vehicles to test drive!
