Trails without trepidation

The Jeep Compass Trailhawk takes an already capable SUV and with some engineering magic makes it a demolisher of trails!

In reality, though, most compact SUVs aren’t really SUVs, they are mostly hopped-up hatchbacks on stilts.

That’s okay, because that what the people want. Thankfully, the Jeep Compass isn’t one of them. For the most part, it’s a proper SUV with proper capabilities. As a company, whose name has become synonymous with an off-road vehicle, its understandable that Jeep didn’t think the Compass simply wasn’t capable enough.
