A heavily updated Jeep Compass is the latest in a line of Chrysler vehicles to see major revisions this year. Announced Tuesday, the 2011 Compass offers new styling, improved four-wheel drive capabilities, and a host of revisions to the interior and chassis.

Most noticeable among changes to the Compass is heavily revised exterior styling. Intended to show a resemblance between the Compass and its larger Grand Cherokee stablemate, styling cues include a new hood, a new front fascia and headlights, and new front fenders, which clearly borrow a wider, distinctively flared design from the Grand Cherokee.

According to Jeep, the Compass’s new exterior is just one of many revisions to the small SUV. The Compass’s interior has also been heavily updated, with a new steering wheel, new padded surfaces intended to provide a more upscale feel, and reshaped seats featuring new, higher-quality cloth upholstery.

Behind the scenes, the Compass also boasts several important upgrades. While the Compass has always offered all-wheel drive, newly available for 2011 is the Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package, featuring low-range gearing, all-terrain tires, skid plates, tow hooks, a raised ride height, and fog lamps. With the new package, the Compass earns Jeep’s own “Trail Rated” approval, reserved for models with advanced off-road capabilities. All 2011 Compass models also offer upgraded suspension for a more compliant ride.

“With the new 2011 Jeep Compass, we’ve applied the premium design cues of our award-winning new Grand Cherokee,” said Mike Manley, Jeep’s president and chief executive. “Combined with new interior appointments, and refinements to the suspension and steering systems, Jeep Compass provides consumers the ultimate combination of styling, capability, fuel economy, efficiency, safety and value in the important compact SUV segment.”

Although pricing has yet to be announced, Jeep says that the Compass go on sale this month and will retain last year’s Latitude and Limited trim levels, although the Compass Sport trim will be replaced with a new base model called simply the Compass. The Compass will also retain its 2.0- and 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines.
