Blog 3: Why You Shouldn’t Ignore the 2018 Jeep Compass | Landers CDJR of Norman
Here at Landers Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Norman, we love all things Jeep. The Jeep brand is one of the most iconic and recognizable brands in the auto industry, after all. From the rowdy Wrangler to the luxurious Grand Cherokee, the Jeep lineup has raving fans across the globe. But there are some Jeep models that are bit underrated, and we think they deserve more attention than they’re getting. Take the 2018 Jeep Compass, for example.
The 2018 Jeep Compass sits between the Renegade and the Cherokee in size, but it is so much more than just another compact SUV. The Compass got a fresh update for the 2018 model year, and it’s back with more to love than ever before. Let’s dive into a few reasons why you should definitely not ignore the 2018 Jeep Compass!
Dashing Good Looks
First of all, you can’t deny the dashing good looks of the 2018 Compass. The first thing you notice is the instantly recognizable seven-slot grille. If you’re a Jeep fan, that grille has to put you in a happy place. The Compass isn’t trying to be anything it’s not by redesigning the front end and disguising its heritage. It’s trying to be a Jeep — which of course, we love. Then there’s the sleek and aerodynamic profile that gives it that look of alluring confidence. Its silhouette is both modern and dramatic in a powerful way, tempting you to open the door and step inside. When you do, you’ll be greeted by an enticing interior that has been molded and shaped for your comfort. With available options like heated and leather-trimmed seats, a heated steering wheel and a power liftgate, the 2018 Compass redefines what a compact SUV can deliver. Don’t worry though — if you’re one of those Jeepers that would rather stick to a basic, bare-bones interior — you can skip the upscale stuff and keep it comfortably simple.
Right-On Ride Quality
Do you like to venture off the beaten path and do a little off-road exploring? Do you prefer to quietly cruise the paved streets? Or maybe you like to keep it tame during the work week and go a little wild on the weekends? Cool, the 2018 Jeep Compass can do all those things. The 2018 Compass is powered by a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that offers 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. You can pair that with a 6- or 9-speed automatic transmission, or a manual transmission on the Sport model if you prefer to do your own shifting. All-wheel drive is also available. If you really want to take the off-roading up a notch, the Trailhawk trim provides everything you need to take on the trails. No matter what configuration you go with, you can bet on your 2018 Compass having impressive handling, incredible responsiveness, a smooth ride and minimal road noise.
Prioritized Tech & Safety
The technology and safety features of the 2018 Jeep Compass are all-around impressive. The infotainment system now features UConnect, which is more user-friendly than any other system out there. Everything is displayed on a large 8.4-inch touchscreen, with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. You can even mirror your smartphone, meaning your infotainment screen can become your cell phone screen. Pretty neat, right? You’ll find helpful controls strategically placed on the steering wheel and other easy-to-access spots, making it one of the most technologically sensible vehicles around. If you’re a music lover, you can opt for the Beats premium audio system, which does not disappoint. As far as safety goes, the 2018 Compass offers a number of available features like lane departure warning, forward collision warning, advanced brake assist, rear park assist, blind spot and rear cross path detection, rain-sensing wipers and more.
If nothing else attracts you to the 2018 Jeep Compass, the price tag just might. With all the amazing things the Compass has to offer, it has a base starting price of just under $21,000. Not to mention the fact that it gets up to 23 miles per gallon in the city and 32 on the highway. Affordable to buy and to drive. Winning all around!
