Jeep Compass is designed to deliver world-class performance and fuel economy. Jeep Compass features a 2.4-liter World Engine that produces 172 horsepower (129 kW), 165 lb.-ft. (224 N•m) of torque, and (when paired with a five-speed manual transmission) delivers 23 mpg city and 28 mpg on the highway on both 4x2 and 4x4 models.

Jeep Compass offers a full-time, active four-wheel-drive system called Freedom Drive I™. This four-wheel-drive system features a lockable Electronic-controlled Coupling (ECC), giving Jeep Compass 4x4 drivers the ability to handle rough weather conditions and low-traction surfaces.
