There are two models available on the Jeep Compass, a stripped-down Sport model, and a more upscale Limited that provides more standard and available equipment. The MSRP ranges from $16,795 to $22,575, depending on model and configuration.
Although standard equipment on this 2008 Jeep omits some of the features of its peers such as power windows, it does come with some unconventional items. Motor Trend likes the sporty 17-inch aluminum wheels, which are much more desirable than styled steel wheels or wheel covers that adorn some other base models. Although Edmunds describes the base Jeep Compass as pretty basic, they point to the MP3 player input jack as a nicety. Thankfully for this little Jeep, 2008 brings air conditioning as standard equipment to the Sport model as well.
There are many available options for both the Sport and Limited. Both trim levels can be outfitted with Bluetooth and upgraded audio, which feature Boston Acoustic speakers and a speaker bar that can swivel down for tailgate parties. More impressive to Edmunds is the Limited model, which includes leather upholstery and seat heaters. This trim level also offers an optional navigation system. Another notable option available in the Jeep Compass described by Kelley Blue Book is a flip-up holster built into the center armrest for an MP3 player or cell phone, which will be handy for all the iPod fans. Motor Trend describes this feature as "excellent" and says their editor's iPods and Treos fit the area perfectly, but larger devices such as the BlackBerry might not fit.
The 2008 Jeep Compass has a broad range of up-to-date features, though many are added-cost options.
