  • Performance

    A grey 2020 Jeep Compass is parked on a dirt path that is overlooking a valley near Costa Mesa, CA.

    Rumbling under the hood is a 2.4L Tigershark 4-cylinder engine that offers 180 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with a six or nine-speed automatic transmission, FWD is standard. You can also opt for AWD on higher trims. This powertrain system allows the Compass to get a best-in-class fuel economy of 27 mpg combined (23 city/32 highway). It can even tow up to 2,000 pounds, which is quite impressive since most compact crossovers max out at 1,500.

    Off-Road Features of the Jeep Compass

    Your 2020 Jeep Compass model may feature the Selec-Terrain Traction Management System. This is only available on 4WD models and offers selectable driving modes to help you conquer whatever terrain you’re driving on. You can choose from Auto, Rock, Snow, Mud, or Sand. In addition, the Trailhawk model adds Jeep’s Active Drive Low 4x4 System that features a 20:1 crawl ratio with a low range for better handling over chunky rocks. Want to get closer to the lake, but there is a rocky downward slope in your way? Never fear! The Jeep Compass can steadily climb down the rugged terrain and get you to where you want to be. It can do this by using Hill Descent Control to monitor braking, speed, and throttle while traveling down steep declines. You can focus on steering, and the Jeep Trailhawk will handle the braking to ensure safe arrival at the bottom of the treacherous hill.

    This vehicle also features water fording. With its high air intake and water sealing, you can drive through certain rivers without worrying about flooding the engine compartment. It also boasts enhanced maneuverability to make it over a log or through tight spaces and corners. You get a lot of off-roading capabilities with this model. Big things really do come in small packages!

  • Interior

    A side view of the black leather interior of a 2020 Jeep Compass is shown.

    As previously touched on, the 2020 Jeep Compass is available in six various trim levels. The base is known as the Sport. For interior colors, you can choose from Black or Black with Sandstorm. This model features the new UConnect 4 infotainment interface. Displayed on a 7-inch touchscreen, this intuitive system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless audio integration; you can listen to your personalized playlist anywhere you go. The ParkView rearview camera is another upgrade this model receives. When you shift into reverse, a video feed will appear on the touchscreen monitor. This provides you with a view of what’s directly behind your vehicle. It also gives you helpful guidelines that come in handy when you’re trying to get into tight parking spaces.

    The Compass "Latitude"

    The Latitude trim level is available in Black or Black with Ski Gray interior colors. This model takes the UConnect 4 infotainment interface up a notch by adding USB ports to charge your mobile devices and a premium Alpine stereo system. If you choose to add the Cold Weather Group package to this version of the Compass, it will add heated seats, remote vehicle start, a windshield de-icer, and a heated steering wheel for comfort in the winter months.

    The Compass "Altitude"

    The Altitude trim is only available with a Black interior. However, its Piano Black interior accents give the cabin a sleek and sophisticated look. You can also add a dual-pane panoramic sunroof to enjoy those perfect weather days that we see here all year long.

    The Compass "Limited"

    Next is the Limited model, which is available with Black or Black with Ski Gray interior colors. Tech upgrades come in the form of a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen for the UConnect 4 infotainment interface. The seats are covered in subtle leather and offer a heating feature for comfort during the colder months. A 115-volt household-style power outlet has also been added for your convenience, and the steering wheel is heated as well.

    The Compass "Trailhawk"

    As for the off-roading Trailhawk edition, this version features leather-trimmed seats with Ruby Red stitching for a striking contrast. This model only comes with a Black interior with red accents. Upgrading to the Luxury Seat Group will add power-adjustability and ventilated memory settings to the driver’s seat.

    The Compass "High Altitude"

    Finally, the High Altitude trim is available only in black on the inside. This model features the advanced UConnect 4C NAV infotainment interface that operates with a navigation system and is displayed on the larger 8.4-inch touchscreen monitor. It also boasts a premium 9-speaker Alpine stereo for an enhanced music-listening experience.

  • Exterior

    A red 2020 Jeep Compass is driving on a dirt path through the woods near Costa Mesa, CA.

    As with most vehicles, the trim levels matter to the exterior as well as to the interior. This is the same for the 2020 Jeep Compass. Many exterior styling elements and features are heavily dependent on the trim that you choose.

    Exterior of the Compass "Sport"

    For example, the base Sport can be equipped with the Sport Appearance Plus Package. This adds 16-inch silver-painted aluminum wheels for a sleeker exterior look. It comes standard with 16-inch black steel wheels.

    Exterior of the Compass "Latitude"

    Rolling on 18-inch polished aluminum wheels with black-painted pockets, the Latitude model gets foglamps for enhanced visibility. It also features body-colored power-adjustable heated side mirrors that can quickly melt ice and snow. Although we don’t get much of that weather here in Southern California, it can be a handy feature for folks who travel to colder states for the holidays.

    Exterior of the Compass "Altitude"

    The Altitude rides on 18-inch gloss black aluminum wheels for a bold style. It also features gloss black exterior accents and a black sloping roofline for an edgy look. Paint options on this ride are unique, as well. It comes in solid black or an array of two-toned paint colors.

    Exterior of the Compass "Limited"

    The Limited is visually similar to the Altitude except it has larger 19-Inch gloss black aluminum wheels. It also comes in two-toned paint colors, which we will get into shortly.

    Exterior of the Coveted Compass "Trailhawk"

    Aside from all of the off-roading features that we have already covered, the Trailhawk also has two red tow hooks on the front and one on the back. These can be used to pull that 2,000-pound haul limited to good use!

    Exterior of the Compass "High Altitude"

    Lastly, the High Altitude model rolls on 19-inch satin granite aluminum wheels that give the vehicle a sophisticated look. Satin-gloss granite crystal metallic accents surround the grille and badging for a sleek, soft exterior style. Additionally, high-intensity discharge headlights with an LED strip provide optimized visibility at night.

    Color Options

    As for colors, the Sport is available in nine monotone shades, including Diamond Black Crystal Pearl, White, Granite Crystal Metallic, Billet Silver Metallic, Olive Green Pearl, Jazz Blue Pearl, Laser Blue Pearl, Redline Pearl, and Spitfire Orange.

    All the other trims are available in some of those monotone colors, but they also come in an array of two-toned shades as well. The two-toned color palettes have one thing in common. Black is always one of the two hues. If you want the Altitude, Limited, Trailhawk, or High Altitude in a monotone color, you can only get them in black. Otherwise, you will need to decide on a two-toned color palette that you like best.
