    Big things come in small packages, and that’s especially true with the small-but-mighty 2021 Jeep Compass. Jeep manages to fill this compact SUV with buckets of gritty off-roading capability without the sticker shock associated with other higher-priced Jeep models. The Compass offers budget-minded buyers easy entry into the coveted family of happy Jeep owners, thanks to a starting MSRP of just $23,915.

    Affordability isn’t the only headline, though. The Compass delivers plenty of choices within the vast trim lineup, giving compact SUV buyers with a little more cash plenty of ways to add luxury and comfort features yet still be able to drive a vehicle with smaller proportions. Pick the affordable base Sport or spring for a lux Limited or trail-ready Trailhawk: the choice is yours, and you have plenty.

    Thanks to several included technology features, buyers don’t have to add costly packages to stay connected, even when choosing the base Compass. Jeep’s Uconnect operating system is one of the best in the industry, with connectivity and easy-to-use interfaces buyers will love. Add the final, and most unexpected, benefit of free maintenance for three years, and the Compass easily enters no-brainer territory.

    What else is there to love about the compact 2021 Jeep Compass crossover SUV? It would be easier and faster to list the things we don’t love because there aren’t many of those. Versatility, affordability, and style make Jeep’s small SUV a fine choice for everyone, from first-time buyers to discerning, luxury-loving SUV aficionados. That’s what we love about the newest Jeep Compass.

  • Trailhawk

    Take on the Off-Road With Ease in the Trailhawk 

    The 2021 Compass is, first and foremost, a Jeep. That means superior off-roading capability, even though this little compact crossover is pretty enough for an upscale hotel valet. Don’t let its good looks fool you, though. Take the Compass Trailhawk: this trim is near the top of the price range, at a starting MSRP of $31,060, and boasts a handful of trail-ready features that justify the higher price tag.


    The Trailhawk comes standard with a 4x4 powertrain and includes a Selec-Terrain Traction Management System. Selec-Terrain lets drivers choose from four different settings - auto, snow, sand, and mud - to dial in specific traction that meets road conditions most effectively. This hands-on traction control lets drivers decide what’s most needed at any given moment.

    Active Drive Low 4x4

    Active Drive Low 4x4 adds to Selec-Terrain’s DIY selectable traction control system and gives the Compass bragging rights for the best 4x4 capability in its class. This system delivers a 20:1 crawl ratio, which means it produces enough torque (power) to easily crawl over any terrain at low speeds. Remember, horsepower relates to power in the form of speed, while torque is more about the force of rotation, which doesn’t always translate into forward motion. Think of pulsing your blender to crush ice versus running it at full speed. The low gear crushes ice more easily and consistently, while higher speed blending moves the blade faster but doesn’t necessarily chew up the ice efficiently.

    The Compass Looks Good and Works Powerfully

    On the Exterior, Compass Trailhawk trims come standard with two front tow hooks and one in the rear, all of them in an eye-catching red hue. Inside, buyers will love the standard 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen with Uconnect. Add the Trailhawk Elite Interior Group for just $1,695 more, and you’ll add a long list of additional tech features, as well as premium leather-trimmed bucket seats. If you are an off-road enthusiast who likes a vehicle that looks good and works better, then the 2021 Jeep Compass Trailhawk is the vehicle for you. 

  • Technology

    Stay Connected in the Compass

    The Compass is either equipped or available to be equipped with nearly every tech feature imaginable. Starting with the standard 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen with the seamless Uconnect operating system, the Compass seamlessly connects your smartphone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, giving you access to streaming music or your favorite podcast. Opt for navigation, available on certain trims, and your touchscreen converts to an easy-to-see map with turn-by-turn directions. There’s also an available 4G LTE WiFi Hotspot to keep up to eight people connected on long road trips or during a day of in-town errands.

    Jeep offers an optional SiriusXM Guardian subscription. This app-based system turns your smartphone into a control center, letting you lock and unlock doors, remote start your Compass, and even sound the horn if you’re having trouble remembering where you parked. You can even select the interior temperature right from the app. The SiriusXM Guardian system also lets you send directions to your navigation touch screen directly from your smartphone and uses an SOS button integrated into the rearview mirror to connect with a live operator in the event of an accident or to obtain roadside assistance. 

  • Safety

    The Compass integrates over 70 standard and optional safety features, a staggering number that will put drivers at ease. Starting with its supremely strong steel body, the Compass is designed to both withstand and absorb the impact of a collision from any angle. Eight strategically-placed airbags protect occupants in the event of a crash.

    Upgrade Your Safety

    Choose the Driver Assistance Group, standard on the Limited and Trailhawk trims, and the potential for a collision reduces significantly. That’s because these driver-assist safety systems are designed to help drivers stay alert and aware of - and avoid - potential hazards all around the vehicle. Here are some of the amazing safety features that you can upgrade your 2021 Compass with. 

    Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking works by continuously monitoring the road ahead and alerting the driver if the vehicle is approaching the car ahead too quickly. The system will also automatically apply the brakes to avoid a collision and maintain a safe distance. LaneSense Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist works by alerting the driver visually and audibly when the vehicle drifts out of its lane, and the turn signal isn’t engaged. If the driver doesn’t correct the vehicle’s course, the system will apply gentle steering nudges to ease the vehicle back into its intended lane of travel. 

    The Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go automatically adjusts speed to keep a consistent and safe distance between your vehicle and the car ahead. The system is even capable of fully stopping the vehicle in stop-and-go traffic. Other additional, or standard on high trims, safety features include Automatic High-Beam Control Headlamps, Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path Detection, and the Parksense Rear Park Assist system. 

    Safety Is a Standard

    All 2021 Jeep Compass trims come standard with a ParkView rear backup camera, which displays a live camera image of the area around the rear of the vehicle along with handy gridlines that help with parking and navigating tight spaces when backing out of a parking spot. Add the optional Rear Cross Path Detection alert, and you’ll be alerted audibly if a potential hazard is entering the area behind your car from either side of the vehicle. Jeep knows safety, and there are plenty of ways for you to upgrade your 2021 Compass to make it as safe as possible.
