Jeep Compass has been around in its new style since late in 2017 . The Trail rated Trailhawk is the true 4WD version of the model line-up. Jeep doesn’t rate their vehicles unless they meet the requirements. So if it is Trail Rated you know it’s capable.
I have always liked the Compass. It seems to get the proportions right. It’s also comfortable inside as well.
The vehicle we had was a Pearl white with grey anti-glare hood decal and black highlights. Pretty smart looking.
The Compass manages to provide excellent 4WD capability packaged in an urban exterior.
It is just as comfortable around the inner city as it is on the bush tracks or the beach. It’s ideal for those ski trips as well.
I actually really enjoyed the Jeep Compass Trailhawk. Priced from around $49,500 plus the usual costs it’s a little pricey but it’s for those buyers that want practicality as well as something a little different from the usual suspects of AWD SUV’s.
