It is a beautiful day in the St. Louis area! This cooler temperatures are delightful and we are loving it – It’s giving us a great opportunity to check out the inventory of Jeep vehicles on the All Star Jeep Dealer lot near Florissant. While we love all the different models in the Jeep lineup, today we want to focus on the great changes that we see coming for the Jeep Compass in 2018.
The new Jeep Compass is a continuation of the original concept — a tough-bodied, compact crossover with one model engineered for off-roading and three for bad weather, all in a Grand Cherokee-style skin. It carries the Chrysler “Tigershark” 2.4 liter engine, with manual and automatic transmissions, with a two-liter turbo four supposedly a year or three off.
“Power ratings are 180 hp at 6,400 rpm and 175 lb-ft of torque at 3,900 rpm, and a peak towing capacity of 2,000 lb (with tow package and AWD only). Electronic stop-start comes with both automatic transmissions, and includes a secondary battery and upgraded components. The engine has coil-on-plug ignition with dual plugs, and an automatic tensioner on the single-belt accessory drive.”-allpar.com
There is just one engine, with three different transmissions. A Fiat six-speed manual is standard on the Sport and Latitude, with FWD or AWD; a six-speed Aisin is optional with FWD. All wheel drive Compasses can be ordered with the optional nine speed automatic (not a six speed automatic); the Trailhawk is nine-speed only.
Take advantage of the beautiful weather this weekend and check out the different Jeep models at All Star. The team at All Star would be happy to take you on a test drive of the current Jeep Compass and share with you all of the amazing features that it has to offer.
