All-New 2017 Jeep Compass Announced, Here’s What We Know
An all-new 2017 Jeep Compass is coming out and it looks better than ever. The new Compass model is a slightly larger version of the Jeep Renegade, and people are loving it! Check out all the new features.
Let’s start with the body style. The new Compass is no longer as boxy or short and in 2017 it will be a true mid-sized vehicle with traits of both the Cherokee and Renegade. Some exterior features of the standard base model include an all-new modern design, chrome accents, and a seven slot Jeep grille with bright and attention-grabbing HID headlights.
The 2016 Compass models have two engine options and it is likely that they will also be available with the 2017 Compass models as well. The standard engine is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that averages 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. The other available engine is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder, this engine has an average fuel economy of 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
But, Jeep has said that there will be over 17 powertain options on the new Compass lineup, so we’re excited to see what will come.
Technology and safety features were also taken into account while engineering the newest Compass model. Safety features like electronic stability control, electronic roll mitigation, and hill-start assist (on models with manual transmission) come standard. A ParkView rear backup camera is available as well.
So far, this is all that has been confirmed about the all-new 2017 Jeep Compass models, but Jeep has said it will be displayed at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November. The 2017 Compass models will be released in early 2017, and will have a starting price just above $19,000. Keep an eye out for the all new Compass at Miami Lakes Automall here.
