Posted on July 31, 2020
Just because a vehicle claims to be an SUV, doesn't mean that it will perform well both on and off-road. The experts at Caledon Chrysler wouldn't waste your time selling an SUV that just did one of the other. That's why are offering drivers in the Greater Toronto Area, the 2017 Jeep Compass. Available in 4x4 or FWD and four trim levels, this 4-door SUV is tough and roomy as well as efficient and comfortable. To understand how this compact SUV is right for your unique needs, let's take a closer look at all the 2017 Jeep Compass has to offer.
Performance and Toughness
Because you want performance in your SUV, the 2017 Jeep Compass comes with a choice of two engines. The first is a 2.0-liter DOHC 16V I-4 engine with Dual VVT that produces 158 horsepower at 6,400 and 141 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,000 rpm. The other is a robust 2.4-liter DOHC 16V I-4 engine with Dual VVT that puts out 172 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 165 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,400 rpm. Depending on the trim and engine, you have many transmission choices including a six-speed automatic, five-speed manual, CVT, or CVT2 with off-road crawl ratio transmission. Unlike many tough SUVs on the market, the 2017 Jeep Compass gets fuel economy as good as 7.9L/100 km highway and 10.3L/100 km city and a driving range of 569 km highway, so you can plan and enjoy longer trips. To make your next adventure even more complete, the 2017 Jeep Compass offers 907 kg of towing power, four-wheel independent suspension, and available Trail Rated capability. You also get a full-size spare tire, 18-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels, and an acoustic windshield with deep-tint sunscreen glass on some trim levels.
The 2017 Jeep Compass is built to keep you and your passengers safe no matter where and when you drive. All trim levels include continuous tire pressure monitoring and Electronic Stability Control with Electronic both of which do an excellent job ensuring passenger safety. You also get standard active front head restraints and a host of airbags including supplemental front seat side airbags, front and rear supplemental side-curtain airbags, and advanced multistage front air bags.
