Design of Jeep Compass

Standard on the Sport is a tilt-only steering wheel, a USB port next to an aux port, Bluetooth phone/audio connectivity, 60/40-split rear seatbacks that fold down, foglights, air-conditioning, cruise control, a 4-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio, and 16-inch alloy wheels. The Latitude core model inherits the Sport's standard features, then installs 17-inch wheels, taps into the features of the Power Value Group, and has a tonneau cover available as part of a package. The Latitude has another version dubbed the 'High Altitude Edition'. The Sport trim has two further versions: the Sport SE or the 75th Anniversary Edition. The Sport SE model has a leather-wrapped steering wheel (with audio controls), a matching gloss-gray body trim, and heated front seats. The High Altitude Edition works well on a beach with its sunroof and leather upholstery. A sunroof is also in the 75th Anniversary package, with four 18-inch bronzed alloy wheels, and a remote engine starter. There's a cargo cover, an informational display, a garage-door opener, and an alarm in the Security and Cargo Convenience Group. Four-wheel drive Compass trims mix nicely with the All-Weather Capability Group. Every single Compass model can also utilize the aptitude of the Freedom Drive II Off-Road Group, which is super valuable when you break down what you are getting for the money. Standard on the inside as well is the popular Uconnect Voice Command with Bluetooth system, which allows SiriusXM Radio (with 1 year trial subscription) and remote USB port for playing or transferring files, and also allows handsfree calling with Address Sync. There is an optional Uconnect brand Wi-Fi internet connection and Wi-Fi hotspot that the dealer can install.
