Get to Know the 2021 Jeep Compass in Lexington Park

By the 2021 model year, the Jeep Compass had been around for a little over a dozen years and was in its second production cycle. Lusby residents were now familiar with a compact crossover SUV that continues to deliver roominess, fuel efficiency, and adherence to Jeep's unique off-road capability tradition. Split into a variety of trim levels; the 2021 Compass is the recipient of significant changes to make it a worthwhile choice within its class.

Power & Capability

Powering the 2021 Jeep Compass is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which outputs 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. While the six-speed manual transmission is no longer around, there's still a pair of gearboxes to go with. If you stick with the standard front-wheel drive, the engine is paired with a six-speed automatic. Going with the optional four-wheel-drive system-which optimizes performance on virtually any surface and is accompanied by the Selec-Terrain traction management system with Snow, Sand, and Mud settings-has the engine paired with a nine-speed automatic. The increased number of gears makes for a smoother driving feel and much better traction control.

However, go with the front-wheel-drive if you want to maximize fuel economy at 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. When properly equipped, the Compass can tow up to 2,000 pounds.


Trim Levels

For 2021, the Jeep Compass is offered in Sport, Latitude, Altitude, Limited, and Trailhawk trim levels, as well as the 80th Anniversary model.

Interior & Technology

The Compass's Uconnect infotainment system-famous for its ease of use due to its menu design and redundant physical controls-is anchored by a seven-inch touchscreen. Uconnect brings together elements such as a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for smartphone integration.

With its dual-zone automatic climate control system, front passengers have climate controls in addition to Prince Frederick MD drivers to set their heating and cooling preferences. Cruise control enables drivers to set a safe distance between them and vehicles in front of them. Remote keyless entry enables ease of access by simply pressing the key fob button to unlock the doors. For safety, the Compass includes electronic stability and traction control, anti-lock braking, brake assist, and six airbags (two frontal impact, two side-impact, and two side curtain airbags).

With the purchase of a 2021 Jeep Compass, Waldorf MD drivers are automatically enrolled into the Jeep Wave program. This is a customer care program that provides complimentary maintenance and dedicated 24/7 support, among other benefits, for three years from the date of ownership.

For a trial subscription to SiriusXM Radio, as well as an upgrade to proximity keyless entry to access the vehicle by simply having the key fob on you, take a step from the base Sport model to the Latitude one. The upper-level Limited gets auto-dimming ability on the rearview mirror to dim headlight glare behind you, as well as a larger, 8.4-inch touchscreen. The Limited joins the Trailhawk to gain driver-assistance technologies, which include forward collision mitigation for applying stopping power to avoid a front-end crash and blind-spot warning to help you watch out for vehicles on either side so that you don't crash into them.

There's an 80th Anniversary special-edition Jeep model available to commemorate the Jeep's brand's eight decades of existence. This model comes equipped with a standard 8.4-inch touchscreen, and it gets unique features such as black Berber floor mats and the commemorative logo stitched into the front seats and bezel finishes.
