Overview

Built on the same platform as the Dodge Caliber, the entry-level Jeep Compass is not designed for rugged off-road use. As such, it does not carry Jeep's \"Trail Rated\" badge. For the 2010 model year, Jeep has added new safety-oriented headrests across the lineup, changed some of the optional equipment, and added a new 5-speed manual transmission to the base 4-cylinder model.
  • New driver and front passenger active head restraints on all models
  • 158-horsepower, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine now offered with a 5-speed manual transmission
  • Automatic climate control is now available on 5-passenger models
  • Remote start is added to the Security Group option package
