2024 Jeep Compass Engine Performance
Under the hood of every Compass is a 200-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder that manages to churn out 221 lb-ft of torque. It’s more than enough to give the Compass the power it needs to navigate a multitude of terrains, and is also enough to tack an extra 2,000 pounds of towing capacity off the hitch. An eight-speed automatic transmission is also standard equipment across all 8 trims.
If you are after peak off-road capabilities, you’ll find it in the Jeep Compass Trailhawk, a Trail Rated SUV that adds a low crawler gear ratio as well as a Rock mode that strategically shifts torque to the wheels with the most grip. In addition, the Trailhawk includes hill descent control, and a selec-terrain traction management system that allows you to alter overall performance to meet the demands of the trail.
