The Jeep Compass has been completely redesigned for 2017. It now shares its exterior styling with the larger Cherokee, including the clamshell hood, dramatic roofline and sculpted fenders and shoulders. Power comes from Jeep's proven 2.4L Tigershark 4-cylinder, which now makes 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque, figures that are up 8 hp and 10 lb-ft, respectively. With stop-start technology, it can return up to 30 mpg on the highway. The new Compass is offered in both 4x2 and 4x4 models, and transmissions include 6-speed manual and automatic choices as well as a class-exclusive 9-speed automatic.
