All Compass models get FCA’s ubiquitous 2.4L Tigershark MultiAir I-4 engine, making 180 hp and 175 lb-ft in this application. Other Compass models get a space-saver spare or inflator kit. The new Compass is finally here, and based on our first drive, it is definitely worth the wait. Size-wise, the Compass is shorter than the latest-generation Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, two models that are listed as key competitors by Jeep. The Renegade is that model’s de facto replacement, slotting in slightly below the new Compass in price and mission.

2017 Jeep Compass First Drive
Despite the arrival of this all-new, second-generation 2017 Jeep Compass crossover SUV, the brand will keep selling the first-generation Compass also as a 2017 model before sending that decade-old ute to the great scrap heap in the sky. If the Jeep Renegade is just a hair too small and the Cherokee a smidge too big, then the new Compass is sized just right. We, however, are happy to bid adieu to the lackluster first-generation Compass, as well as its boxier twin, the Jeep Patriot. While other all-wheel-drive Compass models provide standard Auto, Snow, Sand, and Mud driving modes, the Trailhawk adds a Rock mode. Inside, the new Compass supplants the old one’s low-rent interior with modern wares that recall the interiors of the costlier Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee in both design and material quality.
