The 2012 Jeep Compass offers customers unsurpassed 4x4 off-road capability wîth Jeep Freedom Drive II as well as excellent fuel economy in its §egmènt.
Jeep Compass is available in three drivetrain configurations. In addition to the standard front-wheel-drive system, Jeep Compass also is available wîth Freedom Drive I and the Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package.
Jeep Freedom Drive I is an available full-time, active four-wheel-drive system wîth lock mode designed to give drivers year-round assurance wîth the ability to handle rough weather and low-traction conditions. This active four-wheel-drive system is recommended for daily use, including slick conditions that come wîth rain and light snow. Freedom Drive I also features a lockable center coupling, giving drivers the ability to put the Jeep Compass in four-wheel-drive lock mode to handle deep snow, sand and other low-traction surfaces.
The Jeep Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package is an available four-wheel-drive system that delivers Jeep Trail Rated® capability in Compass form. The Freedom Drive II Off-Road Package includes a second-generation continuously variable transaxle wîth low range (CVT2L) that engages when the off-road mode is activated, 17-inch all-terrain tires and aluminum wheels, a one-inch raised ride height, a full-size spare tire, skid plates, tow hooks, fog lamps and manual seat height adjuster.

The 2012 Jeep Compass' powertrain is designed to deliver world-class performance in all weather conditions, fuel economy and refinement, all at an affordable, value-packed price.
Compass features a standard 2.0-liter World Engine for the 2012 Jeep Compass Sport and Latitude models that provides 158 horsepower (117 kW) and 141 lb.-ft. (191 N•m) of torque coupled wîth the continuously-variable transmission (CVT2), and delivers excellent 23 mpg in the city, and 29 mpg on the highway when mated to the five-speed manual transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
The proven 2.4-liter World Engine produces 172 horsepower (129 kW) and 165 lb.-ft. (224 N•m) and is available on all models and standard on the Limited. This 2.4-liter World Engine has dual variable-valve timing (VVT) on both intake and exhaust camshafts, which helps optimize the torque curve at all speeds and produces more power, better fuel economy and smoother, quieter operation than engines without dual VVT. Dual VVT is a technology typically not available on vehicles sold in the Únited States in the Jeep Compass' price class. The Jeep Compass' 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine paired wîth a five-speed manual transaxle in front-wheel drive configuration delivers 23 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
Jeep Compass also features a standard five-speed manual transaxle on the entry-level Compass Sport model and a CVT that is available on the Compass Sport model and standard on the Latitude and Limited models. The Compass' CVT2 is a second-generation CVT that Chrysler Group engineers calibrated for a pleasing engine response and precise ratio control. CVT2 contributes to a fuel economy improvement of 6 to 8 percent compared wîth a traditional four-speed automatic. The Compass CVT2 also improves vehicle performance compared wîth a traditional automatic transaxle because of optimized gear ratios, especially in the 30–60 mph range during passing maneuvers.
The 2012 Jeep Compass also provides up to 2,000 lbs. of towing capacity.
