Everybody loves a Jeep. Whether you’re taking on the toughest dirt trails or powering through miles of highway, nothing beats the solid feeling of a quality Jeep.
For the urban warrior looking for a stylish ride to take you further than ever, however, “Jeep” is not the brand that automatically comes to mind. While this impressive offroad brand is well-known on the trails, its prowess between skyscrapers is not as widely respected. Despite the reputation, however, the used Jeep Compass for sale near you is actually an excellent urban cruiser for you and your crew thanks to exceptional handling and reliable durability.
Here’s a quick look at this impressive utility vehicle and why it’s just as good on 42nd Street as it is on the rocky trails and in the backwoods.
Stylish and Sleek
Maybe the most impressive aspect of the Compass is its sleek, stylish design that’s perfect for either cruising in the sunlight or slyly speeding through the night – and it’s guaranteed to turn heads no matter what time of day.
The bold exterior design takes cues from the classic Jeep style, including the iconic seven-slot grille and round halogen foglamps, combined with modern style like chrome mesh grille inserts and angled headlamps for a modern, stylish look. A muscular, sculpted hood and available bronze-aluminum 18-inch wheels only add to the Compass’s tough stance on the road.
Between the standard deep-tint sun shade and the available heated power side mirrors, the Compass is truly built to withstand the elements. The available automatic front headlamps can sense when dusk has fallen and switch on seamlessly, while the standard acoustic windshield blocks out all that distracting road noise for a quiet, peaceful interior. With this kind of style, your Compass is sure to be the most eye-catching thing on the road.
If there’s one thing that sets the Compass apart from its brothers in the Jeep family, it’s just how outfitted with premium features and amenities the Compass is. Boasting not only premium stylish interior elements to make your ride as smooth and comfortable as possible, the Compass also features enough impressive entertainment and storage features to make just about any Jeep lover swoon.
Perhaps most noticeable is the premium cloth seating for five, which invitingly envelops the cabin for superior comfort on the road. Those who anticipate long days on – or off – the road might opt for the premium leather with quick-drying sport mesh, while premium drivers might opt for the premium leather upholstery for that added touch of class and comfort. And that leather wrapped steering wheel? That’s all for you.
The power seats will keep you and your front passengers warm with their available in-seat heating, while the available automatic climate control is sure to help you keep the entire cabin cozy, no matter the weather outside.
Whether it’s a scorcher or sub-zero outside, you’ll be able to see it all through the available wide power sunroof. And don’t worry about boredom – the Radio 430N driver information system, available on the Compass Latitude and High Altitude models, includes a high-resolution 6.5-inch touchscreen with one year of SiriusXM satellite radio, hands-free calling, a USB port, and Bluetooth streaming audio for all your hottest tunes.
Blast this through the nine Boston Acoustic speakers with an included subwoofer or, if you like, pull open the hatch and rock out with the available flip-down liftgate speakers. With an audio system like this, everything from your daily commute to those weekend tailgates can be filled with all your favorite music at a crisp, clear quality.
And on those big trips out of town or simply on those busy days full of running around, you can know that the Compass is built to handle all your gear. Boasting 60/40 folding rear seats and a folding passenger seat that open up 53.6 cubic feet of cargo space, the Compass can fit just about all your heavy gear in one easy trip.
With all of these amazing interior features available on the Compass, even the most die-hard Jeep lover is bound to be impressed with this updated Jeep for 2016.
If anything makes the Compass unique among Jeeps, it’s the intuitive safety design that appears to be central to the Compass’s construction.
Featuring an architecture that’s specifically built to absorb collisions and protect the passengers, the Compass is built to protect from all sides. Side impact door beams, high-strength steel crossbeams, and carefully designed crumple zones help absorb and deflect the shock of a crash, while six advanced driver and front passenger airbags protect you and your passengers from all sides in the event of a collision.
You’ll be plenty safe on slick city streets as well thanks to Electronic Stability control, which can correct for unexpected road conditions for seamless safety, while Electronic Roll Mitigation can automatically brake in the right places to prevent an imminent rollover. This means you can drive with peace of mind, knowing your Compass is working as hard as you to keep your passengers safe on the road.
Perhaps most impressive is the safety feature that works best when you’re nowhere near your Compass: Sentry Key antitheft technology, which can immobilize the engine when anyone tries to drive the Compass without a valid key. This key can also unlock your Compass and remotely start the engine from up to 50 feet away for ultimate convenience.
No city driving experience is complete without the tiny, impossible-to-get-into parking space adventure – now made significantly less stressful thanks to the available rear backup camera on the 2016 Jeep Compass. With this handy piece of machinery, you’ll be backing in and out of parking spots like it’s going out of style – although, in an SUV like the Compass, you won’t run out of style anytime soon.
Plenty of Power
If you’re looking for a quality, luxurious Jeep but are worried about fuel efficiency, then you’re only going to love the Compass even more once you take a look at its powertrain’s capabilities.
Boasting an efficient 158-horsepower 2.0L four-cylinder engine, the Compass can motor down miles of highway at an amazing 30 miles per gallon – meaning you’ll be spending more time with your Compass on the road and less time at the pump.
Not only is the Compass designed to power through any inclement weather you might encounter on the city streets, it’s also Trail-Rated for offroad driving – meaning you’ll be free to take your Compass well beyond the city limits and out just about as far as you’d like to go. And with available tow hooks and a skid plate to protect the undercarriage, you won’t be afraid to get out and explore to your heart’s content. Plus, with up to 2,000 lbs of towing capacity, you’ll be able to bring everything you need to make that outing the best you’ve ever had.
As you can see, the Jeep Compass is a bit unlike any other Jeep that’s come before it – and yet, at the same time, it unarguably draws from the same excellent designs that make Jeep such a beloved brand. The next time you’re in the market for a quality vehicle that can last the long haul and won’t let you down, consider a 2016 Jeep Compass – it might just be the best decision you make all year.
