Model Highlights

Once again for 2011, there are two trims available: the base Sport and the Limited. All-wheel drive versions come standard with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that offers 172 horsepower and 165 pound-feet of torque. All Compasses come standard with a 5-speed manual transmission. An automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) with manual shift override control is optional. Front wheel drive is standard on both trims while 4-wheel drive is optional. A 2.0L 4-cylinder engine making 158 horsepower and 141 pound-feet of torque is available only on the Sport with front-wheel drive.

The Compass offers a ground clearance of 8.5 inches, along with a 21-degree approach angle and 32-degree departure angle, both good for negotiating steep inclines. The rear seats split 60/40 and fold forward to expand cargo space. The front passenger seat folds forward to create a table-like surface or expanded cargo space for long items. Also, the center armrest slides forward three inches for shorter drivers, and it includes a cell phone flip pocket. 2011 features a new 3-spoke steering wheel, a redesigned center stack, new door panels and backlit door controls.

Freedom Drive I returns for 2011, with its active all-wheel drive that can be locked into 4-wheel drive at the push of a button. The Freedom Drive II is newly optional for 2011, which was previously only offered on the Patriot. The system features low-range gears, tow hooks, skid plates and a one-inch suspension lift for more serious off-roading.

Active front head restraints are standard across the lineup, as are side curtain front and rear air bags, antilock 4-wheel disc brakes with brake assist, electronic stability control with roll mitigation, traction control and hill start assist. Supplemental front seat-mounted side air bags and rear passenger air bags are optional.

Standard equipment on all trims includes 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lamps, air conditioning and auxiliary audio jacks. Accessories such as a power driver-seat height adjustment, reclining rear seats and stain-repellent upholstery are available. All of these features are standard on the Limited, which adds 18-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, leather upholstery, leather-wrapped steering wheel, satellite radio and a 6-CD changer as standard.

There are a number of other packages available for both trims. Items that are available as options include heated seats, cargo cover, Bluetooth, remote start, flip-down tailgate speakers, subwoofer, sunroof, navigation system, digital music storage and a USB audio jack.


Model News

The 2011 Jeep Compass gets a styling update for 2011, with sharper front end lines looking much like those on the Grand Cherokee. All sheetmetal from the windshield forward has been updated, with new front and rear fascias as well. Jeep also fitted more sound insulation as well as suspension improvements, helping to create more of a solid and quiet feel on the road, and greater off-road capabilities have also been added to go along with the more rugged look. 2011 also sees a long list of added standard features as well as an interior redesign.


Value Writeup

The car-like 2011 Jeep Compass is the only crossover vehicle in the Jeep family, and shares a platform with the boxy Jeep Patriot. For 2011, the Compass combines the utility of a compact SUV and the maneuverability and crisp handling of a small hatchback, with some added rugged Jeep character.

Its competitors include the Hyundai Tucson and the Suzuki Grand Vitara, but the Jeep brings with it some off-road prowess that others in this segment don't feature. Price is perhaps the Compass' strongest selling point, with MSRP starting at $19,995.

Inside, there is plenty of room for four--five passengers in a pinch. The roof is tall, giving the interior an even-more spacious feel. Unique to the Compass are optional flip-down tailgate speakers, which many reviewers see as a big plus for the vehicle.

Summary
Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2010-2012 Jeep Compass and Patriot vehicles manufactured May 6, 2008, through July 20, 2012. The affected vehicles have a software error which may result in a delayed deployment or non-deployment of the seatbelt pre-tensioners and/or side airbags.

Consequence
In the event of a rollover necessitating airbag deployment, the software error can lead to a delayed deployment or non-deployment of the side curtain airbag and/or seatbelt pre-tensioners. As a result, vehicle occupants have an increased risk of injury in a crash.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will correct the software free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall number is N01.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.

Frontal crash test results are valid for 2011 model year vehicles manufactured before July 2, 2010.

Male/Female Dummy Note
Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Rating

Rollover Rating Dynamic Test Result
No Tip

Risk of Rollover
18.5%

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. 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.
