The Jeep Compass is new for 2007. Based on the Dodge Caliber, Jeep added their signature seven-slot grille and round headlights, increased the ride height, and added Jeep's Freedom Drive system. The Compass utilizes Daimler Chrysler's 2.4L four-cylinder World engine with variable valve timing, generating 172 horsepower and 165 lb-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard but a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is optional for those looking to rest their left foot.
Low-cost four-wheel drive; fuel-saving CVT available; standard 17" aluminum wheels and side curtain air bags.
The 2007 four-wheel-drive Jeep Compass lists at $17,175, making it one of the most affordable four-wheel-drive vehicles available in the United States.

Standard safety features include four-wheel antilock disc brakes and front and side curtain air bags.
