2019 Jeep Compass Review

The Jeep Compass serves as a sort of midrange entry into the automaker’s line of small crossover SUVs, slotting between the Renegade and Cherokee. While it offers a more traditional midsize-crossover look, it still maintains the legacy of power, performance, reliability, and adventurous spirit that Jeep has engendered for more than 75 years. Drivers throughout the Penn Yan area, including Geneva and Watkins Glen, appreciate the way this sport utility crossover combines style and performance.

The 2019 models are now rolling out, and it’s an exciting time as people clamor to see what new options, features, and upgrades are available. Check out this complete review and breakdown of the new 2019 Jeep Compass, its performance, technology, and where you can see one for yourself today.

2019 Jeep Compass

The 2019 Jeep Compass arrives in showrooms this year with just a few minor shuffles of feature availability across its trim levels. It still features the same spacious cabin with high-quality, near-luxury materials, as well as the outstanding technology interface to which Jeep fans have become accustomed.

All models are driven by a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that provides 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. It’s front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is an option on all trim levels except the Trailhawk, where it comes standard. On all but the Sport and Latitude trims, you can choose a 6-speed manual transmission; most, however, will come with either a 9-speed automatic or a 6-speed automatic.

Off-Road Capability

Like most Jeep vehicles, the Compass features a Trailhawk trim level, which is sure to be among the most popular configurations. It’s distinctly designed for trailblazing off-road adventures. Not only does it come with off-road tires, but it features raised suspension and the Jeep Selec-Terrain system, which helps to control hill ascent and descent on rocky terrain.

This trim level also features underbody skid plate armor to protect the undercarriage, as well as red tow hooks and some visual flourishes to set it apart from the rest. It offers performance for going off-road that’s among the best in the class. Jeep is known for getting you anywhere you want to go in any weather condition and has been since it debuted in World War II. The Compass continues that legacy in style.


The infotainment system in the Compass is provided by the celebrated Uconnect® interface. With an available 8.4-inch touch screen and smartphone app integration via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, plus satellite radio, Bluetooth® connectivity, and USB ports, it’s got everything you need to keep entertained and informed on the road.

Convenience technology is abundant as well, including features like keyless entry, remote start, power-adjustable heated seating, heated steering wheel, and power liftgate, so that your experience is both ultimately comfortable and nearly as effortless as it gets.
