More than a small Jeep at an affordable price, the 2018 Jeep Compass looks good, is comfortable and surprisingly quiet on the road. And unlike other small SUV, this one is quite capable on any terrain, especially when you wear Trailhawk versions. There is no alternative to the somewhat anemic 180 horsepower 2018 Jeep Compass engine, while competitors such as Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tucson offer supercharged upgrades. In addition, the 9 speed automatic transmission may seem dubious to change.
The 2018 Jeep Compass looks like a Grand Grand Cherokee, which is welcome to us. A two tone black roof is standard on Trailhawk and Limited models, and optional on the Latitude. 2018 Jeep Compass has its share of “Easter eggs”, hidden design elements such as the Loch Ness monster in the glass hatchback, which will surprise and delight shoppers. Limited models offer more chrome on the outside, while Trailhawk models feature off-road durability with increased ground clearance, sliding plates, anti reflective hood and stylish red tow hooks.
If you have driven a jeep in the last two years, the interior of the 5 passenger 2018 Jeep Compass will be clearly familiar to you. Large ventilation ducts line the outer edge of the dashboard and the infotainment screen, comfortable seats for both front occupants and easy to use and find controls. Rear passengers have 38.3 inches of legroom, more than a Toyota Camry sedan, and there are more than 27 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, as well as plenty of equipment and bags. shopping. Doubling the seats more than double that space to just under 60 cubic feet.
We are still expecting the 2018 Jeep Compass to receive Fiat 1.4 engines or its two liter and four liter online turbochargers. However, at this point, it is very likely that the car will reach the market only with the new 2 liter Tigershark gasoline engine online. This would provide 160 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque, which would be about the same as the competition. However, as its competitors are equipped with turbocharged engines, 2018 Jeep Compass would take advantage of this offer. We know that Jeep is preparing a new turbocharged 2 liter engine for the Wrangler. Rumors suggest that this new engine would develop up to 300 horsepower and 300 pound feet of torque. However, for 2018 Jeep Compass, we are confident that it will be out of tune to offer a little more low end torque and less power, as 300 horsepower is not needed in its class. In any case, a 6 speed manual transmission will probably be offered as standard, while an automatic option should be a nine speed automatic transmission.
Jeep has not commented on cars so far, but it’s quite clear what they are. Although it is not official until now, the car may be exposed at the end of the year, which is much earlier than expected. Its price is also unknown, but it is worth mentioning that the Patriot had a price of about $ 18,000, while the 2018 Jeep Compass of about $ 20,000. Some have suggested that the new model would start at the location of the old Compass, which would make it very attractive to many.
