The 2017 Jeep Compass is expected to keep Jeep’s proud heritage alive by being the next topnotch off-road SUV model in the Compass line. Rumored to spot a six-speed manual variant, as well as a nine-speed auto model, the car will certainly rival several competitors when it finally hits the market. Like the company’s Cherokee model, the Compass is also expected to feature a four-wheel drive, although buyers will have the opportunity to own a front-wheel drive model.
