Every All-New Jeep® Compass Trailhawk® proudly wears the Trail Rated® badge—signifying its ability to perform well under various off-road conditions. It carries on the Jeep Brand tradition of having legendary traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording abilities.
Jeep® Trail Rated® 4x4 vehicles are engineered to tackle some of the toughest terrain on earth. The Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System and the Jeep Active Drive Low 4x4 System help the compact and powerful Jeep Compass Trailhawk® masterfully handle snow, sand, mud and rock.
The Jeep® Compass Trailhawk® boldly goes where other vehicles only dare. Insulated electrical connections and enhanced body sealing, along with a high air intake, help you to navigate the streams and flooded underpasses that stop others cold.
Conquer narrow gaps and maneuver through cramped driving situations. The Jeep® Compass Trailhawk® has precision steering and a tight turning diameter to help you dodge emergency situations.
Keeping the rubber on the trail is what it’s about. When one or more of the Compass Trailhawk® wheels becomes elevated while going over obstacles, good articulation allows the other wheels to stay in contact with the ground and keep you moving.
Logs, rocks and any other hurdles Mother Nature puts in your way can be easily managed by the off-road geometry engineered into the Compass Trailhawk®. Ground clearance measures an impressive 8.5 inches to help you conquer surprisingly large obstacles.
The 2018 Jeep delivers Best-in-Class 4x4 capability. Get behind the wheel and head north, south, east or west—it’s ready to explore in whatever direction you choose. The Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System, combined with the Jeep Active Drive Low 4x4 System, delivers outstanding on-road traction and dominating off-road performance.
Efficiency meets responsive power under the hood of the Jeep Compass. A dynamic 2.4L Tigershark MultiAir® 2 engine provides drivers with Best-in-Class 4x4 Highway Fuel Economy. Choose from a six-speed manual or a six- or nine-speed automatic transmission for enhanced performance and smooth shifting. Fuel-saving Stop/Start technology is standard with the automatic transmission. Stop/Start technology shuts the engine off when the vehicle stops, then starts the engine again when the brakes are released.
