Every All-New Jeep® Compass Trailhawk® proudly wears the Trail Rated® badge—signifying its ability to perform well under various off-road conditions. It carries on the Jeep Brand tradition of having legendary traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording abilities.
The All-New Jeep® Compass Trailhawk® is the Most Capable Compact SUV Ever. Get behind the wheel and head north, south, east or west–it’s ready to explore in whatever direction you choose. The Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System, combined with the Jeep Active Drive Low 4x4 System, delivers outstanding on-road traction and Best-in-Class off-road performance.
Efficiency meets responsive power under the hood of the All-New Jeep® Compass. A dynamic 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine provides drivers with unsurpassed highway fuel economy and Best-In-Class 4x4 fuel economy. Choose from a six-speed manual and a six- or nine-speed automatic transmission for enhanced performance and smooth shifting. Fuel-saving Stop/Start technology is standard with the automatic transmission. Stop/Start technology shuts the engine off when the vehicle stops, then starts the engine again when the brakes are released.
2.4L TIGERSHARK® MULTIAIR® 2 ENGINE
Performance and efficiency are amplified with the help of the exclusive MultiAir® 2 valvetrain system on the 2.4L Tigershark® engine. MultiAir 2 technology maximizes intake manifold pressure and manages combustion quality to help the engine run more efficiently and effectively. The available class-exclusive nine-speed automatic transmission further optimizes engine output and enables aggressive launches and smooth power delivery.
Adventure boldly and freely in the All-New Jeep® Compass. Two available 4x4 systems— Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low—give you the capability to take your adventures farther.
JEEP® ACTIVE DRIVE
Get 4x4 capability when needed without sacrificing efficiency. The available Jeep® Active Drive 4x4 System features a rear axle disconnect that seamlessly switches between two- and four-wheel drive to help increase efficiency when 4x4 capability isn’t needed. The Selec-Terrain® Traction Control System manages traction to give you all-weather capability in four modes: Auto, Snow, Sport and Sand/Mud.
JEEP® ACTIVE DRIVE LOW
Take capability to new levels in the All-New Jeep® Compass Trailhawk®. It has best-in-class off-road performance thanks to the Jeep Active Drive Low 4x4 System. It builds on the Jeep Active Drive System and adds a 20:1 crawl ratio and low range for Trail Rated® capability. The Selec-Terrain® Traction Control System receives a fifth setting–Rock–for your off-road adventures.
SELEC-TERRAIN® TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM
Dial in optimum performance. The available Selec-Terrain® Traction Control System allows the driver to choose from up to five on- and off-road modes so they can tackle a variety of surfaces. The settings coordinate 12 separate vehicle systems including: throttle control, accelerator pedal response, transmission shifting, transfer case operation, traction control and Electronic Stability Control.
Take on cold weather and icy winter road conditions with snow-ready features like available heated exterior mirrors, windshield wiper de-icers and an available Snow Mode on 4x4 equipped models.
HANDLING AND CAPABILITY
From rural roads to the most modern highways, the All-New Jeep® Compass is designed to give you an impressive ride. A stiff body structure combined with a responsive steering system and a frequency-sensitive damping front and rear strut system add up to excellent handling with maximum control.
HILL DESCENT CONTROL
There’s no need to ride the brake pedal when navigating challenging downhill paths. The All-New Jeep® Compass Trailhawk® is the only Compass model equipped with Hill Descent Control. It monitors throttle, speed and braking on steep slopes, allowing the driver to concentrate on steering. Hill Start Assist keeps your brakes applied after you’ve released the brake pedal, to give you time to accelerate without rollback.
When it’s time to haul, the All-New Jeep® Compass steps up. The 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine provides a maximum towing capacity of up to 2,000 pounds. This tow rating is useful for hauling everything from folding camp trailers to trailers for small boats, motorcycles and snowmobiles.
