The strong and brawny 2019 Jeep Compass SUV shows that its a force to be reckoned with! This compact crossover emulates a similar look of the full-sized Grand Cherokee but with a cheaper starting price around $23,000, (plus destination fee). This wallet-friendly vehicle has great appeal with its wide range of standard features and options. As one should expect with the brand, this 2019 truck will prove to be your best friend when off-roading and will also provide you with an impressive fuel economy. All of these reasons make the 2019 Jeep Compass a shoo-in for Driver’s Auto Mart Used Car of The Week!

Drive and Engine

If the smaller Jeep Renegade had a baby with the larger Jeep Cherokee, the 2019 Compass would undoubtedly be its result, as it acts as a favorable mix of the two. The power delivery is adequate but drivers who elect for all-wheel-drive will like the array of terrain-slaughtering modes. Depending on the surface, an automatic setting lets the truck guide the torque to the wheels with Snow, Sand, and Mud Modes simultaneously enabling diverse amounts of wheel slip for increased traction. For your best off-roading experience, it’s best to choose a Trailhawk, since it comes equipped with a low crawl gear ratio and a Rock mode.

When driving the 2019 Compass, its 2.4-liter engine will provide up to 180 mpg in horsepower with 175 lb-ft of torque, although this doesn’t seem like much, it can still get the job done when it comes to off-roading, as it can tow up to 2,000 pounds. Also, shoppers who opt for SUV Sports can pair their vehicle with a 6-speed manual transmission as well as a 6-speed automatic on the 4WD Latitude. Buyers who are bold enough to move up further to the Limited or Trailhawk trims can match their Jeep with a 9-speed automatic. Each trim that has an automatic transmission will include start/stop technology that runs through the engine as the vehicle comes at a stop. 

Exterior

The miniature Grand Cherokee exterior includes a standard black, 2-tone roof on the Trailhawk and Limited trims, as an optional feature on the Latitude. Limited models include more chrome on its body, during which Trailhawk models back down on its off-road toughness with elevated ground clearance, skid plates, a blackout anti-glare hood and dapper red tow hooks. Also, for the Tick-Tockers who are looking for their Easter eggs, you’ll find these hidden elements in places like the rear hatch glass.

Interior and Features

As previously mentioned, the 2019 Compass is the perfect mix of daddy Cherokee and mommy Renegade. The interior has been designed with a very similar style and aura of its parents with big round air vents strategically placed controls, knobs and buttons, as well as incredible comfortable seats with ample legroom. Rear-seat passengers will have 38.3 inches of legroom to work with, there is also a plentiful 27 cubic feet of cargo space, which is really 60 cubic feet when the seats fold.

Compass shoppers have four trims to choose from: Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk and Limited. The base Sport model includes some notable features like keyless entry and push-button start, rearview camera and a 6-speaker infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Though, the Latitude model may prove to be more agreeable to your liking as it comes with automatic headlights, cornering fog lights, 17-inch wheels, ambient interior lighting and illuminated vanity mirrors. Optional features include power-adjustable driver’s seat, navigation and safety systems like blind-spot monitoring.
