2019 Jeep Compass Review
Drivers in Richmond, New Baltimore, and Detroit know Jeep for its rugged, capable SUVs. In our 2019 Jeep Compass review, our team at Dick Huvaere’s Richmond CDJR will discover just how this model lives up to that reputation. Join us as we look at the performance capabilities, interior comfort, and high-tech options offered in the 2019 Jeep Compass.
2019 Jeep Compass Capabilities
When you’re looking at a Jeep, it’s because you’re looking for a vehicle that can handle any condition—so let’s get straight to the point. When you choose a 4×4 model, the 2019 Jeep Compass comes with a Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System that allows it to adapt to any road or weather. Simply switch between available modes such as snow, sand, mud, or rock. Or, keep it set to auto, and let your Compass do the work for you.
The available Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 System, when equipped, will automatically switch to two-wheel drive when extra traction isn’t needed, to increase fuel efficiency on dry roads and help you save at the pump. This is all powered by a 2.4L MultiAir® 2 engine, which provides up to 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque while getting an EPA-estimated 23 MPG city/32 MPG highway.
Taking the 2019 Compass on the trails is easy thanks to a high running ground clearance: Front-wheel drive models have 7.8 inches of clearance, while 4×4 models increase that to 8.2 inches. Get even more peace of mind with available skid plates to protect the underbelly of your Compass on rough terrain.
Comfort from the Road to the Trail
Just because you want a rugged vehicle doesn’t mean you want to sacrifice comfort. The 2019 Compass comes with manual 6-way front seats, or you can upgrade to 8-way power adjustable seats to find your optimal driving position. Additional upgrades like heated front seats and steering wheel increase the comfort level on Richmond’s coldest days.
No matter what model and package you choose, you and your passengers can benefit from dual zone climate control to keep a comfortable temperature for everyone. An available Dual-Pane Panoramic Sunroof adds that open-air feel to your Compass when the weather’s nice.
High-Tech Drive in the 2019 Jeep Compass
A customizable 3.5-inch driver information display shows data such as mileage, exterior temperature, direction, and radio station right from the instrument panel behind your steering wheel, so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road to see important information. You can also upgrade to a 7-inch color display for even more data right between the tachometer and speedometer.
Jeep also offers plenty of extra technologies to improve your drive in the 2019 Compass. Available options include heated exterior mirrors and a windshield wiper de-icer to keep your view clear in wintery conditions. Plus, optional rain-sensing windshield wipers automatically turn on when a dash-mounted camera senses moisture on the windshield.
