The 2015 Compass is equipped with a standard acoustic glass windshield, offering the luxury of a quiet cabin wherever you go. At highway speed it helps improve the ability to hear normal conversations, lessens wind noise, decreases cabin noise from outside traffic and improves your handsfree Bluetooth® experience when using the Uconnect® System.
This Uconnect® System is available on Compass Limited and Latitude models and comes with features including:
Compass is available with two powerful flip-down liftgate speakers that let you take your music outdoors to enjoy, with premium quality sound. When the rear hatch is open, the speaker unit can swing down to project music for the surrounding outside world to hear. A nine-speaker Boston Acoustics 368-watt sound system with subwoofer is also available.
Possessing an outstanding blend of capability and style, the Compass combines Jeep® brand all-weather strength with a bold, muscular profile and elegant details. Classic exterior styling featuring the iconic Jeep® seven-slot grille with chrome surrounds, exterior heated folding mirrors and more make Compass an inspiringly eye-catching vehicle.
Compass offers a wide selection of wheels and rims (for on- and off-road performance) to choose from. A tire pressure monitoring display system is also available and a full-size spare tire comes with the available Trailer Tow Prep Group or the available Freedom Drive II® Off-Road Group.
Compass offers an efficient 2.0L DOHC 16V 158 hp four-cylinder engine capable of delivering a powerful 141 lb-ft of torque. Matched to a five-speed manual 2WD transaxle or an available CVT2 automatic transmission, it comes with a convenient automatic oil change monitoring system.
Freedom Drive IThis system provides you with active, full-time 4WD capability with Brake Traction Control and selectable LOCK mode. Freedom Drive I™ features an Electronically Controlled Coupling (ECC) that monitors wheel slippage and transfers torque to the axle that can use it most. In tough conditions, it can be locked 50/50 front/rear for added low-speed capability and control.
Freedom Drive IIThis system takes Freedom Drive I™ and adds a selectable locking Off-Road mode with Hill Descent Control™ (HDC) along with grade-sensing features and a boost to the crawl ratio. When not in low speed Off-Road LOCK mode, torque is adjusted on demand for added response and efficiency. This system's capability and control handles difficult road situations both on and off-road, including deep snow, mud and up to 19 inches of water. Included with Freedom Drive II® Off-Road Group.
Confirming the Jeep® brand's place as the one of the leaders in 4x4 innovation and off-road capability, the Trail Rated badge signifies that any vehicle bearing it has been tested to perform in the following five categories of off-road conditions: traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording. The Freedom Drive II® Off-Road Group is also available when you're ready to take off-roading to the next level.
Available Hill Descent Control™ helps monitor throttle, speed and braking on Compass when you need it most, while Hill Start Assist keeps brakes applied for a short time after you've removed your foot from the brake to give you time to accelerate. And for exceptional handling, Compass also has a four-wheel independent suspension with MacPherson strut front and a multilink rear.
When properly equipped with a 2.4L engine and the Trailer Tow Prep Group, Compass is able to tow up to 2,000 pounds of Maximum Loaded Trailer Weight and is ready to haul everything from folding camping trailers to trailers for small boats, motorcycles and snowmobiles.
The Compass uses sophisticated airbag technology and an energy-absorbing design to help protect the driver and passengers. Six advanced, multi-stage driver and front-passenger airbags, including standard supplemental front seat-mounted side airbags, offer protection when you need it most. Side-impact door beams, ultra-high-strength steel crossbeams and engineered crush zones at the front of your vehicle help absorb excess energy and decrease the transfer of energy to occupants in the event of a collision.
Compass is equipped with a number of active safety features designed to help you stay out of harm's way. Electronic Stability Control senses over-steer or under-steer and then automatically applies brakes and throttle to help put you back on track. A four-wheel disc antilock brake system (ABS) offers improved vehicle control and decreases stopping distances on both dry and slippery surfaces. Brake Assist applies maximum braking power during panic braking, and Electronic Roll Mitigation uses innovative sensors that determine when a rollover may occur and applies braking force to reduce the likelihood of an accident.
A Sentry Key® antitheft engine immobilizer makes it virtually impossible for anyone without a valid key to drive your vehicle. Plus, the remote keyless/illuminated entry system lets you lock or unlock doors from up to 50 feet away and is also available with a remote start system.
The available ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera allows you to see an on-screen rearview video image of the rear surroundings of your Compass, whenever the shift lever is put into reverse. The image will be displayed on the Uconnect® Touchscreen.
