2018 Jeep Compass Trim Levels

A reliable compact SUV, the 2018 Jeep Compass has plenty to offer drivers in Chicago, Skokie, Park Ridge, and Forest Park.

The team at Marino Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram has put together this review of the available Compass vehicles, discussing some of the features in each trim. Read on below to learn more and find out if this SUV is right for you.


The base edition of the Compass, the Sport package features a 2.4L engine which provides 180 horsepower, perfect for city driving and off-roading. A standard backup camera gives drivers with a better look at what’s happening behind the car when backing up, and the Uconnect® 3 infotainment system comes with an engaging 5-inch touchscreen.

The available tech package equips the Compass with numerous active and passive safety features, like the ParkSense® Park Assist system, which provides an alert when backing up if another car is too close. This package also includes SiriusXM® satellite radio with a 1-year subscription.


The interior and exterior appeal of this trim is evident after spending just a few moments with it. To start, the standard manual transmission on the Sport trim is replaced by a 6-speed automatic transmission on this trim. The 17-inch aluminum wheels stand out, and so does the available leather-wrapped steering wheel.

This trim also adds an available dual-pane sunroof, with a sliding glass ceiling that opens your world up to sun and fun. The power sunshade will keep you cool when the sun shines at its brightest.


If you’re a fan of the color black, the Altitude trim may be for you. Black finishes are offered on the exterior badging, front fascia and lower rear fascia, giving this trim a sporty appearance. The 18-inch black aluminum wheels add a bold look, and the black roof also makes a statement.


The Trailhawk has 4×4 capability built in, offering premium performance both on the pavement and in off-road situations. Jeep Active Drive Low 4×4 technology is standard on the Trailhawk trim, with an extra setting on the Selec-Terrain system. The Selec-Terrain system provides optimum traction on many surfaces, including, snow, sand, and mud. The Trailhawk trim adds rock as a setting.

This trim also comes equipped with the signature ruby red tow hooks, ready for any off-roading adventure. The refined leather seating is accented by red stitching and provides a more comfortable cabin experience.


As you may expect, the top trim of the Compass comes fully equipped with numerous features. This includes heated leather front seats, perfect for cold mornings and chilly nights, and awe-inspiring 18-inch aluminum wheels that are worth gawking at.

This trim also comes standard with a massive 8.4-inch touchscreen on the Uconnect® system, making life easier when you want to access entertainment options. Use the Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ technology to access navigation apps, play music, and read text messages from your phone on the touchscreen display.
