The 2016 Jeep Compass is Finally Available for Indian Head and Melville Drivers
The 2016 Jeep Compass handles tough terrain with ease and puts a score of high-end features at the finger-tips of Indian Head and Melville drivers. With its multiple engine, transmission, trim, and 4X4 options, this is a compact crossover that doesn’t shirk from harder tasks, but its sleek styling, upscale comfort, and optional ParkView camera helps ensure that city driving is just as enjoyable.
Trim Levels and Price
The 2016 Jeep Compass is ready to hit the roads of Indian Head and Melville in three well-balanced trim levels. Whether you need a basic off-roader or first-rate luxury, there’s a model available to meet your needs.
Sport: Starting at $16,245, the entry-level Sport manages to add plenty of premium features as standard, including steering-wheel mounted cruise controls and a Radio 130 multimedia center. Unrivalled visibility is assured thanks to halogen headlamps and premium fog lamps, while acoustic windshield glass keeps road noise to a minimum.
North Edition: Starting at $23,940, the North Edition makes a number of upgrades. Sitting on 17-inch aluminum wheels with P215/60R17 BSW all-season touring tires, it comes with the convenience of a keyless entry system as standard, as well as hands-free communication and Bluetooth streaming audio.
High Altitude: Starting at $24,685, your top-of-the-range Compass is impressive from top to bottom. All occupants will recline into leather-faced seats, with a heating feature for those in the front and a leather-wrapped steering wheel for the driver. There’s also a power sunroof as standard.
Powertrains and Efficiency
After you’ve chosen your ideal trim level, the Compass gives you the opportunity to pick between two engines and three transmission systems.
Options for Indian Head and Melville drivers include:
2.0L VVT I-4: Even the base-engine commands up to 158 horsepower and 141 lb-ft of torque for a ride that is both smooth and capable. It’s also a top-pick for efficiency, earning either 10.3 L/100 km in the city and 7.8 on the highway with a five-speed manual or 10.8 and 8.9 with a CVT (continuously variable transmission).
2.4L VVT I-4: If you’re going to be tackling the steepest trails and toughest conditions, the 172 horsepower, 165 lb-ft of torque output of the available 2.4L I-4 will allow you to do so with confidence. You’ll achieve up to 11.2 L/100 km and 8.6 with a 6-speed automatic transmission, 10.6 and 8.6 with a 5-speed manual, or 11.7 and 10.3 with the Trail Rated CVT.
Aside from the strength and build necessary to tow up to 2,000 lb (907 kg), the Compass’ ability to go further and go tougher over off-road terrain remains its greatest advantage, and that continues to be the case with the 2016 model. Jeep have made sure of that by offering two advanced 4X4 systems:
Freedom Drive I: A state-of-the-art electronic system anticipates the need for added traction and instantly responds to wheel slippage, allowing for all-weather capability.
Freedom Drive II: Includes a CVT2 transmission system with off-road mode and a 19:1 crawl ratio, ensuring the performance you need to ford deep waterways, climb steep grades, and crawl sure-footedly across rough terrain.
The latter even boats Trail Rated capability. To be worthy of the badge, a vehicle must be put through an exacting set of challenges to determine its ability to excel across five demanding off-road categories: traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation, and water fording.
Comfort and Convenience Features
Though the 2016 Jeep Compass is perfectly at home crossing the most demanding of trails, it also features a wide array of high-end technologies to cater to your every need, such as:
Radio 430N Multimedia Center: Provides a 6.5-inch touchscreen, GPS navigation, CD player, and up to 28GB of available hard drive space.
ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera: Making the Compass just as easy to handle in confined environments, the optional ParkView camera automatically engages when you reverse to display a live-feed of the area behind your vehicle.
Safety comes as standard with any Jeep model, and the 2016 Compass lives up to those high expectations. At no added cost, drivers will find that their vehicle comes with:
Electronic Roll Mitigation
Multistage Front Air Bags
Active Front Head Restraints
