2014 Jeep Compass Summary


The Jeep Compass is like a little brother of the Grand Cherokee, with a smaller body and engine. It has a clean and well thought-out interior and controls, with sporty fabric or classy leather. The standard 2.0-liter engine with 5-speed manual transmission is minimal, but gets a combined 26 mpg. The 2.4-liter engine is more powerful and smooth. Ride and handling are solid, and easy fold-down rear seats open up 54 cubic feet of cargo space. The Freedom II off-road package enables the Compass to take on just about any terrain, and only costs $550. As an entry-level SUV, this is a great package.
