The Vast Capabilities of the Jeep Compass in Fowlerville


Shopping for a new compact SUV in Fowlerville can be a tough task. There are so many options to choose from. The Jeep brand makes this decision a bit easier than it used to be with the new Compass compact SUV. This SUV is a great compromise between Jeep brand capability, durability and everyday usability. Our team loves how easy it is to commute around East Lansing in the Compass.


4x4 Capabilities

When people think of the Jeep brand they think of off-roading. We are happy to report that the Compass continues the commitment to be an adventurer's brand. The Compass has drive modes for snow, sand, mud, rock, and an automatic mode that will shift between them depending on terrain.

The Compass has an intelligent 4x4 system called Active Drive Low. This system will automatically disconnect the rear axle to increase fuel efficiency when 4x4 is not needed which is great for the Howell MI area. It also has a 20 to 1 crawl ration so it can climb up any hill, and hill descent control to help get down them.


No matter what trim you get on the Compass you are getting the 2.4L Tigershark engine. This engine provides the power for the Compass to cross any obstacles in its way. The engine produces 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The engine also gets 23 mpg city and 32 mpg highway, making it a great daily driver. The Compass can even tow up to 2000 lbs if you need it to.

The FWD models can have either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic, while the AWD models all come with a high tech 9-speed automatic transmission to help them get better fuel economy and better low-end gearing.

Customize Your Jeep Compass

Another iconic Jeep brand attribute is being able to customize your vehicle. This is extremely prevalent in the Compass lineup. There are eight models to choose from and all of them have a unique purpose.

The Sport is the base model and comes with the most basic interior. You can most options that you would want, so this is a great blank canvas. The Latitude adds some luxury and a more advanced version of the 2.4L Tigershark engine.

The Upland is the next model and it is the first AWD only model in the lineup. This model is a barebones off-roader with all of the equipment you need for a day on the trails near Fenton MI. After the Upland, we have the Altitude. The Altitude is the first model that has a focus on its luxury features. It also comes with the contrast black roof option included.

The Compass Limited is up next and it takes the Luxury to the next level. It has a leather interior as standard and a wide selection of exterior colors to choose from. The exterior colors are mostly mature dark two-tone metallic options.

The Trailhawk is the ultimate off-roading version of the Compass. It has all of the off-roading tech the Jeep brand could pack into it, along with a nice luxurious interior with unique accents. It also has some of the louder color choices in the lineup that will make you stand out on the streets of Pinckney MI.

Lastly, there is the Compass High Altitude. It only comes in seven colors, but they are all classy. It also comes with special wheels, a unique interior and just about every option available as standard. The only options are some safety features, a power liftgate, a compact spare tire, and a full sunroof.

No matter how you intend to use the Compass there is a perfect model for you near Brighton MI. If you are only going to use it around town the Sport is perfect, but if you are looking for an off-roader with luxury options you have to go with the Trailhawk.
