MORE de­tails of the 2017 Jeep Com­pass Trailhawk com­pact soft­roader are known, fol­low­ing its re­cent out­ing in Brazil. Brazil­ian web­site Mo­tor­chase claimed the top-trim Trailhawk will have ap­proach and de­par­ture an­gles of 29.1° and 33.1°; the lower-trim Com­pass vari­ants will have an­gles of 28.7° and 31.9°.

The Trailhawk will get Jeep’s Ac­tive Drive Low 4WD sys­tem, and Macpher­son struts front and rear are ex­pected.

Mo­tor­chase said the Trailhawk will have a ‘High Tech’ pack­age, which in­cludes park as­sist, adap­tive cruise, lane de­par­ture, auto high beam, and front col­li­sion warn­ing and pre­ven­tion.

The 2017 Com­pass will have four trim lev­els: Sport, Lon­gi­tude, Lim­ited and Trailhawk. A stretched ver­sion of a Fiat 500X and Jeep Rene­gade, it will be 4420mm long, 1820mm wide and 1650mm tall, with a wheel­base of 2640mm. There is 388 litres of lug­gage in the Trailhawk. Low­er­spec mod­els will have 410 litres.

Two en­gines vari­ants will be of­fered in Brazil: a 2.0litre 122kw/201nm diesel (117kw/195nm petrol) Tiger­shark, and a 2.0-litre 125kw/350nm turbo-diesel Fiat Mul­ti­jet. It is un­known what will be avail­able in Aus­tralia.

The Tiger­shark gets a sixspeed Aisin auto, the Mul­ti­jet a nine-speed ZF auto.

Mo­tor­chase listed the US pric­ing for the Trailhawk at around the $43,000 mark.
