2017 Jeep Compass is One Superb Small SUV, Says MotorWeek

Are you shopping the compact SUV class for your next vehicular purchase? Well, if so, please allow your buds here at Byers Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram to throw you a bone:

Ours, the 2017 Jeep Compass, should most certainly hold a spot on your short list.

Why, though?

Please allow the pundits over at MotorWeek to provide some context. Their appraisal of the Compass is as follows:

While we've little doubt the Compass's entry-level engine should suit the needs of most shoppers just fine, others may yearn for something with a bit more brawn.

And that's precisely where the Compass's available engine upgrade -- a 2.4-liter four-cylinder -- enters the equation.

Optional on front-drive models and standard on those with all-wheel drive, this four-banger makes a muscly 172 horsepower and 165 pound-feet of torque. Offered with your pick of a continuously variable transmission, a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic, this powertrain is an excellent choice for the performance enthusiast.
