2014 Jeep Compass Overview

Tamara Warren
Automotive Editor - June 2, 2014

Small in size and stature, the Compass is more crossover than rugged Jeep. But for economy-minded buyers in search of style and presence, that might be exactly what they want.

What's New for 2014

Major changes include a new automatic transmission, a standard front-seat-mounted side airbag and an available backup camera.

Choosing Your Jeep Compass

The front-wheel drive Compass offers a choice between two engines:

  • A 158-horsepower 2-liter four-cylinder
  • A 172-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder

There are also two transmissions—a five-speed manual and a six-speed automatic—and two optional four-wheel drive systems.

There are three trim levels:


The base Sport comes with the essentials: air conditioning, power windows, power locks, power and heated exterior mirrors, and keyless entry.


The new six-speed automatic transmission is standard on the mid-range Latitude, as are heated front seats, a height-adjustable driver's seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.


The Limited adds the 2.4-liter engine, along with leather upholstery, a six-way power driver's seat with adjustable lumbar support, a satellite radio, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, 18-inch aluminum wheels, and automatic climate control.

CarsDirect Tip

Although we prefer the Limited's 2.4-liter engine, its price puts it into competition with superior rivals. We recommend the Latitude for the right mix of features and value.
