The Impressive Performance of the 2018 Jeep Compass

2018 Jeep Compass Performance

The 2018 Jeep Compass performance lives up to the brand’s reputation for off-road mastery by delivering best-in-class 4×4 capability, but it doesn’t stop there.

Travel Off of the Beaten Path

The stellar performance of the 2018 Jeep Compass enables you to head into the wildest of backcountry just as confidently as you’d change lanes between Round Rock and Cedar Park or slip into a parking space in Austin. The Compass offers:

  • Travel through water up to 19 inches deep
  • A tight 35.3 foot turning diameter
  • Up to 8.5 inches of ground clearance
  • 30.3-degree approach angle
  • 33.6-degree departure angle

If you want to take your favorite outdoor toys with you down those unpaved trails, the Jeep Compass will take the load. Your Tigershark Jeep Compass engine offers a maximum towing capacity of up to 2,000 pounds that’s good for small boats, snowmobiles, and motorcycles, so this is as top pick for active drivers. You can even take a folding camp trailer to stay out in the wilderness.

But don’t assume the Jeep Compass focuses on off-road performance to the detriment of on-road performance. Thanks to the combination of a stiff body structure, responsive steering system, and frequency-sensitive damping front and rear strut system, the vehicle delivers exceptional control whether you’re on rural roads, sprinting along the interstate, or zipping around the city.

Even Jeep Compass mpg ratings are surprisingly competitive for such a go-getter — standard models make up to 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
