2018 Jeep Compass: Crossover to a Better SUV

First off, a quick history lesson. Many of the crossovers of today started out as true sport utility vehicles. You remember sport utility vehicles, right? The go anywhere and do anything vehicles that were capable of taming the roughest off road conditions.

So, what happened?

For starters, consumers ended up wanting sport utility vehicles more for their interior room and cargo capacity than for rugged outdoor use. Always adapting to market conditions, automakers changed up the design and build of SUV’s to where they were built on more car-like platforms. In the process, many of them lost the off-road capabilities that are inherent in true sport utility vehicles. That, in a nutshell, is how the modern crossover was born.

You might be wondering what this has do with the 2018 Jeep Compass.

Well, there are a few automakers out there who still maintain true SUV-like tendencies in their crossover vehicles. They have developed crossovers that provide ultimate everyday transportation features along with rugged off-road prowess. The 2018 Jeep Compass is one of those vehicles.

Whether you’re using it for on-road or off road purposes, the Compass is a brilliant choice. For 2018, Jeep makes the vehicle available in four trim levels: Limited, TrailHawk®, Latitude, and Sport. As noted earlier, the 2018 Compass is available with true off-road capability unlike other crossovers on the market. Nowhere is that more evident than in the TrailHawk® edition. It’s loaded up with rugged features that make traversing the roughest conditions in the Austell, Mableton, and Lithia Springs, GA areas a breeze.
