The 2011 Jeep Compass , restyled and with several new standard features to better position itself in the fuel-efficient crossover segment.Borrowing some of its new looks from the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee , the Compass should have a broader appeal than its somewhat frumpy forebear.

Inside, the 2011 Compass gets more soft-touch elements, upgraded materials, a new steering wheel with audio and hands-free phone controls, improved cloth upholstery, and a number of power accessories as standard.

The standard 2011 Compass drive system is still a front-wheel-drive unit.For those with less serious off-road needs, the Freedom Drive I package is available, offering a full-time four-wheel-drive system with a locking mode to better handle deep snow, sand, and low-draction situations.

The entry-level Compass trim gets the five-speed manual standard, with a CVT standard on the Latitude and Limited models.Power for the 2011 model comes from the 2.0-liter World Engine four-cylinder, rated at 158 horsepower and 141 pound-feet of torque.The engine is good for 23 mpg in town and 29 mpg on the highway with the five-speed manual transmission.An upgraded 2.4-liter World Engine with 172 horsepower and 165 pound-feet of torque is an available upgrade, still managing the same impressive mileage with the five-speed manual.

Three trim levels are available for 2011: the Compass, Latitude, and Limited.All three can be had with any of the off-road packages, with the primary differentiation being on the level of interior equipment.

Pricing and options haven’t yet been released.The 2011 Jeep Compass will hit dealerships this month.
