Building on the Jeep® Brand tradition of trusted resilience, the 2018 Jeep® Compass continues the story. More than 70 available safety and security features are combined with the latest technology and contemporary engineering to alert you of risks and help protect you in the face of danger.


Solid frame construction combines high-strength steel with other advanced materials to help create a protective cocoon around occupants. Occupants are further protected by one of the most sophisticated airbag systems of its kind with seven standard airbags. Driver and front passenger airbags incorporate a three-vent system to ensure optimal deployment for occupants of every size and weight.


It’s impossible to predict how weather, temperature or terrain are going to affect the road ahead. The Compass is equipped with standard and available active safety and security features–designed to assess road conditions and adjust performance to help the driver maintain control. Electronic Stability Control integrates antilock brakes and traction control systems to instantly analyze inputs and help keep the vehicle headed where the driver intends.

LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist 

This available system measures your position within lane boundaries. If it detects an unintentional lane drift, it will alert you and correct the vehicle back into the lane. 

Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking 

This available system alerts you when it senses potential frontal impact. If you don’t respond and the risk continues, the system will automatically engage the brakes. 


Safe lane changes help everybody on the road.  Sensors in the available Blind Spot Monitoring system scan approximately one lane over on each side of your vehicle and will alert you with an illuminated icon and audible chime when a vehicle enters your blind spot zone.


Parking lots and tight parking spaces are the sources of lots of dings and dents. The Compass is available with some of the most advanced and comprehensive systems in the market today to help you avoid trouble and navigate your way in and out.

Available Passive Entry and Keyless Enter n’ Go™  

No more fumbling for a key during inclement weather. With the key fob close by, you can unlock your vehicle by pulling one of the front door handles. To start the engine, just press the Start/Stop button while stepping on the brake.  

Rain-Sensing Wipers 

This available system automatically activates the wiper blades when precipitation is detected. The system will then operate the wipers and adjust their speed based on rain accumulation.

Stay on your intended path, thanks to the Electronic Stability Control system and the thousands of micro-adjustments it makes every second. The system monitors steering input and vehicle motion and then applies brakes and reduces engine torque to help keep you headed in the direction you want.

A panic button is included on the key fob. Push the button to trigger the horn and lights and draw attention to yourself when needed. 

Hands-Free Connectivity and Control 

Uconnect® Voice Command allows you to answer the phone and control music and entertainment features, without taking your hands off the wheel or eyes off the road.
