In a world where the automotive landscape is constantly evolving, the 2024 Jeep® Compass (MP) emerges as a steadfast contender, proving that sometimes subtle refinement is the key to enduring excellence.

Under the hood, the 2024 Jeep Compass boasts a 2.0-liter direct injection turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine that commands attention. This powerhouse delivers an impressive 200 horsepower and 221  lb.-ft. of torque, setting a new standard for both power and torque in its class. Mated to an efficient eight-speed automatic transmission, the engine not only offers exceptional launch performance, but it also demonstrates remarkable fuel economy with engine stop-start (ESS) technology, all while keeping emissions in check.

One of the highlights that distinguishes the 2024 Compass is its unwavering commitment to 4×4 performance. From the Sport trim to the Trailhawk model, the entire lineup comes standard with legendary 4×4 capabilities. Whether navigating urban streets or off-road trails, the Jeep Active Drive 4×4 system ensures a seamless transition, making it suitable for any terrain. For the Trailhawk model, the Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 system takes things a step further, boasting a class-leading 20:1 crawl ratio, perfect for conquering challenging off-road obstacles.

Safety has been elevated to a new standard in the 2024 Compass, with an array of advanced features that instill confidence in both driver and passengers. Drowsy Driver Detection, Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, Pedestrian/Cyclist Automatic Emergency Braking, Active Lane Management, Blind-spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross Path detection come standard across all trims, ensuring a cocoon of protection. For those seeking an extra layer of security, an available semi-autonomous driving system provides an additional safety net.

The interior of the 2024 Compass is a testament to the marriage of technology and comfort. The available 10.25-inch frameless full-color thin-film transistor (TFT) digital cluster is not only one of the largest in its segment but also a window into a world of information and connectivity. The standard 10.1-inch digital infotainment touchscreen powered by the new Uconnect 5 infotainment system promises five times faster operating speeds, seamless integration with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and even an available wireless charging pad.

As the 2024 Compass strides confidently into the future, it doesn’t forget its roots in iconic Jeep styling. An enhanced exterior design seamlessly blends premium craftsmanship with rugged aesthetics, resulting in a vehicle that’s as refined as it is ready for adventure. LED lighting technology illuminates the path ahead, with premium LED projector headlamps and taillamps available on select trims, ensuring visibility in all conditions.

For those who crave a touch of luxury, the High Altitude Edition and the (RED) Edition add an extra layer of sophistication. Both are based on the luxurious Limited model and feature body-color painted front and rear lower fascias to stylish 19-inch painted aluminum wheels, these special editions redefine elegance.

An array of exterior and interior colors, such as Silver Zynith, Bright White, Diamond Black, Baltic Gray, Hydro Blue, Red Hot, and Sting-Gray, allows buyers to personalize their Compass to reflect their individual style.

It seems Jeep is having issues sorting out its models. The Compass is positioned just right and awaits the change to a new Stellantis corporate platform. That switch will bring next generation electrification to the Compass.
The Cherokee is essential to the Jeep brand but it’s positioning above Compass is problematic. I love mine and it was the extra size and V-6 option that drove me to the Cherokee. For most buyers there is too little difference between the two and if price is the only issue, then many settle on the much too similar Compass.
The Cherokee must grow wider and longer, keeping its six cylinder option and make refinements of quality and feel in the interior to set it apart. Most important though is it’s nearer Grand Cherokee capability that demands rear wheel drive and a hybrid option far more capable than Compass. With Grand Cherokee growing in size, the next generation Wagoneer S spin off must find a clear distinction above Compass in all respects to succeed in this brands somewhat confusing product mix. The whole process of clarification is moving too slowly and sales are suffering. Time to give people not only choices, but clarity in those choices real quick.
