Model Highlights

The 2007 Compass may be designed as a mild off-roader, but Jeep knows how to maximize a vehicle's off-road ability. The Compass features a class-leading 8.6 inches of ground clearance and steep approach and break-over angles. The four-wheel drive Compass employs Freedom Drive I system, which features a driver-controllable locking center differential that redirects torque from the front wheels to up to a 50/50 split between front and rear wheels when needed. For safety, the Compass includes a standard three-mode electronic stability program that can be switched off to improve off-road performance.

Two powerplant options are available. The 2.4L engine, widely used throughout Chrysler's line, produces 172 horsepower and is standard on all Compasses. An optional 2.0L engine is unique to the base Sport trim. Both engines utilize variable valve timing technology to maximize power and fuel efficiency.

For slightly more than $1,000, an optional CVT can be paired with either engine. Its infinitely variable ratios work to improve engine response and fuel economy by constantly monitoring throttle input and adjusting transmission ratios for either power or economy. On the four-wheel-drive version, the CVT offers AutoStick, in which the transmission mimics six driver-selectable individual ratios for manual selection by steering wheel paddles. This feature is handy for hill descents and off-road use.

While the Compass is a value-oriented SUV, stylish touches abound, such as 17" aluminum wheels, fog lamps, a CD player with auxiliary input, an iPod holder in the center console, and a chrome shift knob. Air conditioning and the Power Equipment Group, which includes power windows, power mirrors, power door locks, and keyless entry, are optional, as is a Boston Acoustics Sound Group, and a six-disc CD changer costs another $320.

The Limited trim replaces the 17" wheels with 18" alloys. It also adds power mirrors, heated leather seats, a leather steering wheel, power windows, power door locks, cruise control, remote keyless entry, air conditioning, and a rechargeable lamp.


Model News

The Jeep Compass is new for 2007. Based on the Dodge Caliber, Jeep added their signature seven-slot grille and round headlights, increased the ride height, and added Jeep's Freedom Drive system. The Compass utilizes Daimler Chrysler's 2.4L four-cylinder World engine with variable valve timing, generating 172 horsepower and 165 lb-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard but a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is optional for those looking to rest their left foot.


Value Writeup

The 2007 four-wheel-drive Jeep Compass lists at $17,175, making it one of the most affordable four-wheel-drive vehicles available in the United States. When the standard 2.4L engine is paired with the optional CVT, the Compass turns in best-in-class EPA numbers. The base two-wheel-drive Compass has a 2.0L engine option that is even more efficient. Standard safety features include four-wheel antilock disc brakes and front and side curtain air bags.

Summary
CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH REAR DISC BRAKES FAIL TO CONFORM TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD (FMVSS) NO. 135, "LIGHT VEHICLE BRAKE SYSTEMS." THE LENGTH OF THE REAR WHEEL HUB MOUNTING BOLTS MAY PREVENT ACTUATION OF THE PARK BRAKE.

Summary
ON CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, THE OWNER'S MANUAL DOES NOT CONTAIN THE REQUIRED HIGHER ROLLOVER RISK WARNING INFORMATION.

Consequence
WITHOUT THE ROLLOVER WARNING INFORMATION IN THE OWNER'S MANUAL, DRIVERS MAY NOT BE AWARE OF THE SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER ROLLOVER RATE ON THIS TYPE VEHICLE, WHICH COULD RESULT IN A CRASH.

DAIMLERCHRYSLER WILL MAIL AN ADDENDUM TO THE OWNER'S MANUAL TO ALL AFFECTED VEHICLE OWNERS. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON NOVEMBER 13, 2006. OWNERS MAY CONTACT DAIMLERCHRYSLER AT 1-800-853-1403.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
