Under the Compass's Hood

Jeep powers their Compass with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which is linked to a five-speed manual transmission. It produces 141 lb-ft of torque and 158 horsepower. Additionally, Jeep offers a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with the Latitude trim. The Compass sends power to the front wheels, and it offers an impressive performance in a variety of environments. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is available with a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission, and it delivers 165 lb-ft of torque and 172 horsepower. It can be linked to a front-wheel or all-wheel drive system, though the all-wheel drive system will receive a unique CVT that can go off-road with its unique crawl mode, which simulates the low-range gearing found on many four-wheel drive systems. When the Compass is properly equipped it has a great towing maximum of 2,000 pounds.
