Standard Engine

Let’s take a look at the standard engine under the hood of the 2016 Jeep Compass: a 2.0L DOHC 16V Dual VVT I-4 that produces 158 hp. The fuel economy for this engine is rated at 10.3 L/100 km city and 7.8 L/100 km highway. This engine is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission, or an optional CVT transmission with an expectation of even slightly better fuel economy.

Additional Power

For those Indian Head and Melville drivers who want an engine with a little more oomph, the 2016 Jeep Compass comes with a second engine option: a 2.4L DOHC 16V Dual VVT I-4 engine. With that under the hood, power increases to 172 hp and fuel economy is rated to be as efficient as 11.2 L/100 km city and 8.6 L/100 km highway. That’s with the 6-speed automatic transmission, which comes as the standard option. Also available is a 5-speed manual transmission and a Trail Rated CVT II with Off Road Crawl Ratio.

Off-Road Capability for Every Type of Driver

The 2016 Jeep Compass is prepared and ready to go off-road or to take any road condition in with confidence and ease. The Trail Rated capability conquers 5 off-road situations with superior traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation, and water fording.

Also available is the Freedom Drive I 4×4 system, which helps drivers navigate through rain, mud, snow, and ice by automatically anticipating the need for added traction and switching the power to the rear wheels as needed.

Then, there is the Freedom Drive II Off-Road Group, which is a great option for drivers who need to travel through deeper snow, mud, and sand.
