Two Outstanding 4×4 Systems Available

There are two different 4×4 systems available on the 2016 Jeep Compass for Regina and Moose Jaw drivers to choose between, so they can select the system that is right for them. Both offer Trail Rated possibilities, which means it is truly off-road capable and has excelled in five grueling off-road categories, coming out on top for traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation, and water fording. Let’s take a look at each of the 4×4 systems and what they offer.

  • Freedom Drive I 4×4 System – this system is made to keep the driver in control over rain, snow, ice, and mud. It responds to wheel slippage by automatically transferring power to the rear wheels to counteract the loss of traction.
  • Freedom Drive II Off-Road Group – this available system offers more traction and control for more extreme or steep inclines through tough whether conditions like deep snow, mud, and sand.

Two Powertrain Choices

The 2016 Jeep Compass also comes with the choice of two different engines, both highlighting the needs of different types of drivers.

  • 2.0L DOHC 16V Dual VVT I-4 Engine – this highly efficient vehicle has an advanced technological design that provides a more powerful and smoother performance on the road. With a 5-speed manual transmission, or an available CVT transmission, it delivers 158 hp and 141 lb-ft of torque.
  • 2.4L DOHC 16V Dual VVT I-4 Engine – this dynamic and powerful engine provides 172 hp and adds high-revving muscle when needed. The engine is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission with a 6-speed PowerTech automatic transmission as an available option.
