The redesigned Compass offers a budget-friendly off-roader that keeps many of the design cues from its big brother Grand Cherokee. Replacing both the existing Compass and the Patriot, the 2017 Compass, which shares a platform with the Renegade, will have a new top-end Trailhawk trim level with added capability off-road. Powered by a 2.4-liter I-4 engine mated to either a nine- or six-speed automatic transmission, depending on its configuration, a six-speed manual will also be available in two-wheel-drive versions. The Compass will be equipped with stop-start technology to improve fuel economy, which is expected to be about 30 mpg highway. Inside, one of four optional Uconnect infotainment systems, including Fiat Chrysler’s 8.4-inch touch screen system, will be available. The crossover will also, for the first time, have an optional dual-pane sunroof.
Price: TBA; arriving in Spring 2017.
