Q: What can you tell me about the new Jeep Compass 4x4 with the 4 cylinder engine?
A: I had the Jeep Compass Latitude 2.4 liter four-cylinder CVT automatic and 4x4 option for a week and was surprised in all areas. Let’s start with the power and performance: nest-firm heated front seats and steering hub controls. Low entry into the seating and rear tailgate area make it easy to enter and exit. The suspension is unlike the hard bouncy Jeeps of yesteryear. Pricing on our test Jeep was $23,445 plus $780 destination city mileage 23 highway 27. Our average combined driving was 25.
