Benefits of Driving a 2007 Jeep Compass Sport Utility Crossover
The 2007 four-wheel-drive Jeep Compass lists at $17,175, making it one of the most affordable four-wheel-drive vehicles available in the United States. When the standard 2.4L engine is paired with the optional CVT, the Compass turns in best-in-class EPA numbers. The base two-wheel-drive Compass has a 2.0L engine option that is even more efficient. Standard safety features include four-wheel antilock disc brakes and front and side curtain air bags.
What's new for 2007?
The Jeep Compass is new for 2007. Based on the Dodge Caliber, Jeep added their signature seven-slot grille and round headlights, increased the ride height, and added Jeep's Freedom Drive system. The Compass utilizes Daimler Chrysler's 2.4L four-cylinder World engine with variable valve timing, generating 172 horsepower and 165 lb-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard but a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is optional for those looking to rest their left foot.
- Low-cost four-wheel drive
- fuel-saving CVT available
- standard 17' aluminum wheels and side curtain air bags.
The 2007 Compass may be designed as a mild off-roader, but Jeep knows how to maximize a vehicle's off-road ability. The Compass features a class-leading 8.6 inches of ground clearance and steep approach and break-over angles. The four-wheel drive Compass employs Freedom Drive I system, which features a driver-controllable locking center differential that redirects torque from the front wheels to up to a 50/50 split between front and rear wheels when needed. For safety, the Compass includes a standard three-mode electronic stability program that can be switched off to improve off-road performance.
