2016 Jeep Compass Fort Lauderdale

The Jeep Compass is in the class of compact utility vehicles, also known as CUVs. It has the look of a Jeep Grand Cherokee, but it offers buyers an affordable alternative in a smaller package. Whether drivers need a vehicle to take their kids to school and sports practices, a vehicle that can safely navigate through bad weather, or a vehicle that needs to be able to transport groceries, gardening supplies and animals, the Jeep Compass is capable and a great daily driver.


All of the Compass models, the Sport, Latitude and High Altitude are equipped with a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine that generates 158-horsepower.
