The 2011 Jeep Compass offers exceptional ride and handling performance in all weather conditions as a result of its upgraded steering and suspension system.

Uconnect media center with iPod interface, Sirius Satellite Radio, Navigation with Sirius Travel Link, a power sunroof, premium audio system with Nine Boston acoustic speakers, illuminated cup holders, liftgate speakers and flat-fold rear seats are just some of the many features that make this vehicle the ultimate in compact sport utility.
The Compass also offers several features that buyers will be thankful for when confronted with varying weather conditions, or when exploring new trails and out-of-the-way places. This feature is the All-Weather Capability Group, with all-terrain tires, all-season floor mats, DRLs, engine block heater, and tow hooks. Also new is Jeep Freedom Drive II; Freedom Drive I is an active full time 4x4 system with lockable center coupling. Freedom Drive II includes a continuously variable transaxle (CVT automatic) with a low range. The ride height was raised one inch and a full size spare, skid plates, tow hooks, and manual seat adjuster are bundled for moderate off-road situations including steep grades, occasional wheel lift, and rock or log climbing, thus making this vehicle Trail Rated.
With its interior enhancements, improved ride and handling characteristics in all conditions – courtesy of upgraded steering and suspension systems – the 2011 Jeep Compass presents an exclusive blend of premium styling, capability, efficiency and value that is unmatched in the compact sport utility vehicle market.
