The All-New Jeep Compass Has Adopted a Classic Name, But It's Far From Just Another Variant

Don't be mistaken: the all-new Jeep Compass SUV may be a compact crossover SUV in Anderson that proudly sports the "Compass" badging, but it's not the same model you've known for decades. The 2018 model will be available soon in the Greenville, Easley, Clemson, and Simpsonville areas, and it will be replacing both the older-generation Jeep Compass and the outgoing Jeep Patriot.

Styling Updates - a Full Redesign, a New Personality

What's the biggest change for the new Jeep Compass?

The body has been completely upgraded to better align with the design strategy that the Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee both enjoy. The all-new Jeep Compass shakes off the bulky, square looks of its old life to take on a new platform--an elongated version of the Jeep Renegade platform--with an exterior design that is strikingly familiar.

This isn't just a baby Jeep Grand Cherokee, though; the 2018 Jeep Compass offers sleeker and cleaner lines from front to back for a stylish look that doesn't compromise on driving performance capability, and its compact size makes it the perfect fit for drivers who are looking for an urban crawler that can double as a backcountry sprawler in a pinch.

 

Jeep Compass Awards & Accolades

Like some of the other smaller SUVs in the Jeep brand lineup, the Jeep Compass is perfect for double duty; take it to the tails around Greenville or Clemson, SC, then head into downtown Anderson to take care of your errands. Of course, we think it's a great choice, but check out what the critics have to say:

  • The 2017 Jeep Compass earned the title of "2017 Activity Vehicle of Texas" at the Texas Auto Writers Association's Texas Auto Roundup.
  • "Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year" is what the All-New 2017 Jeep Compass was named in the Compact Utility Vehicle segment at the 23rd Annual Northwest Automotive Press Association 'Mudfest'.
  • 2017 Jeep Compass earned a Top Safety Pick from Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Achieving a "good" rating in all five IIHS crashworthiness tests landed the compact SUV highest possible ratings for crashworthiness and collision-warning technology.

What Makes the Jeep Compass Such a Good Fit for Anderson, SC Drivers?

The Jeep Compass is compact without feeling cramped or small, offering a generous cargo area, comfortable seating for five, and the small footprint you want when you're parallel parking on a tight side street. Of course, if you're someone who really wants to take it to the trails, there is a Jeep Compass Trailhawk® model that comes ready to roll off the pavement straight from the factory.

Where Does the 2018 Compass Fit Into the Lineup

Like the past generation, the 2018 Jeep Compass is a compact SUV, slotting into the lineup between the subcompact Jeep Renegade and the slightly-larger Jeep Cherokee. Its affordable price tag makes it an easy buy or lease for all types of drivers in Anderson; but its new range of options makes it difficult to choose just one model.

You can browse and compare new trim levels like the 2018 Jeep Compass Sport, Latitude, Limited, and the 2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk, which is complete with trail-ready features like off-road cladding, red tow hooks, and an advanced four-wheel-drive system.

What You Can Expect in the New Model

The 2018 Jeep Compass is powered by a 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir 2 engine--good for 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. That's right about in line with the performance output expected from other competing compact SUVs, but with available Jeep Active Drive 4x4 four-wheel drive, this rugged crossover lets you exert your power in more places.

It offers standard ParkView Rear Back Up Camera, power windows, remote keyless entry, and push-button entry, making it one of the best-equipped Jeep SUVs for the price; upgrade to Limited, Latitude, or Trailhawk models for features like a 5.0-inch touchscreen radio, leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather-trimmed seats, perforated for breathable comfort, heated front seats, and a smart new Uconnect 8.4 infotainment system.


Jeep Compass vs. the Competition

Compare the Jeep Compass to Its Competition to See What Makes the Compass a Great Choice in Anderson, SC

With updated technology, outstanding performance, and rugged styling, the 2018 Jeep Compass makes a compelling case all on its own, but we know that Greenville, SC drivers prefer to do a little research before settling into a final decision, which is why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to put it up against two of its biggest rivals: the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek and the 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport. All three of these crossover SUVs are considered both city-friendly and off-road-ready, giving them what we like to call "right-size" capability for a modern world. Compare them below and see which ones jumps out at you—then visit us in our Anderson, SC dealership for a test drive.

2018 Jeep Compass vs. 2018 Subaru Crosstrek

Subaru likes to tout its off-road capability, and while we can admire the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek's standard all-wheel drive (AWD), it's hardly a match for the off-roading prowess you'll find in the 2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk®. The 2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk® features its own Trailhawk®-tuned AWD system, off-road-specific tires, bright red tow hooks, and a slightly raised suspension, giving it a 8.5-inch ground clearance. By contrast, the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Limited offers a less powerful engine, no off-road specific tires, but it does have an impressive suspension system and 8.7-inches of ground clearance. It's up to Easley drivers to decide whether the extra .2 inches is worth the other compromises.

2018 Jeep Compass vs. 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport

If there's any one way to sum up the 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport, it's that it will simply leave you wanting. It's stylish-ish, with an attractive exterior, if a bit dated as it hasn't changed since the Nissan Quashi (upon which it is based) debuted across the ocean in 2014. Its available AWD system leaves a lot to be desired—meanwhile, the 2018 Jeep Compass Trailhawk® trim features baked-right-in equipment meant to take you off road.

Models that earn Top Safety Pick+ or Top Safety Pick are the best vehicle choices for safety within size categories. Size and weight influence occupant protection in serious crashes. Larger, heavier vehicles generally afford more protection than smaller, lighter ones. Thus, a small car that's a Top Safety Pick+ or Top Safety Pick doesn't necessarily afford more protection than a bigger car that doesn't earn the award.
