Default US Spec 2017 Jeep Compass

Which do you think are the most outstanding specs of the 2017 Jeep Compass?

We have already seen the 2017 Jeep Compass thanks to its Brazilian introduction, but with the start of the 2016 LA Auto Show, we get our first look – and the first details – on the new compact SUV which will be sold in the USA.

Back in September, FCA had an event to celebrate the start of production at the plant in Brazil which will build the 2017 Jeep Compass, but we really only got to see the new SUV back then. Those images told a very pleasant story about the new exterior design, but we didn’t know anything about the nuts and bolts of the 2017 Compass headed for Jeep dealerships in the USA.

Click here for a closer look at the 2017 Compass information from earlier this year.

Now that the LA Auto Show has opened and the 2017 Jeep Compass in US-specifications has been officially unveiled, we have a much clearer picture of this new compact SUV from every angle.

Drivetrain of the 2017 Jeep Compass
The 2017 Jeep Compass will be offered with 17 different powertrain options around the world, but here in the United States, the Compass is available with only one engine, but there are three transmission options.

The standard engine for the American Jeep Compass is the 2.4L Tigershark 4-cylinder engine, which delivers 180 horsepower and 175lb-ft of torque – up 8hp and 10lb-ft of torque over the current Compass engine. Surprisingly, the 1.4L MultiAir turbocharged engine from the smaller Jeep Renegade is not offered and, contrary to some rumors, there is no mention of the powerful “Hurricane” engine.

The 2017 Jeep Compass is offered with front wheel drive or four wheel drive, and both drive configurations are available with a 6-speed manual transmission or one of two automatic transmissions. The front wheel drive Compass gets a 6-speed automatic while four wheel drive models get the 9-speed automatic gearbox.

No official fuel economy numbers are available yet, but FCA expects a highway number of at least 30mpg – although that is likely for the front wheel drive model. In any case, this new Compass will be more powerful and more efficient than the outgoing models – while also being much better looking and more capable in terms of off-roading abilities.
