2012 Mopar Jeep Compass ‘True North’ gets some special features

Article by Christian A., on February 1, 2012

The Jeep Compass is a competent off-road machine just like all the Trail Rated Jeep models. This off-road function and form is even more enhanced with the Mopar Jeep Compass "True North" model. The exterior showcases a matte black finish on the wheel flares, roof, door cladding, lower fascia and black grille with body color inserts. It also features black-headlamp and fog-lamp surrounds, custom front and rear brush bars, rear fog lights and custom rock rails.

Adding some off-road appeal is a 2-inch lift kit from Rocky Road Suspensions and matte black 16-inch alloy wheels with BF Goodrich All Terrain tires. In the interior, the vehicle enjoys lots of attention from Mopar and popular audio component manufacturer Kicker, which provides the complete audio system with rear and front speakers, sub-woofer, amplifier and lift gate speakers.

The audio system converts the Jeep Compass into a mobile high-end sound studio. The vehicle also has a custom center stack gauge pod that houses pitch and roll inclinometer gauges. Adding an enhanced quality feel of the cabin is a Mopar bright pedal kit, rear-cargo tray, door-sill guards, neoprene seats and shift knob.

Similar-looking to its relative, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the all-new 2011 Jeep Compass boasts of its own distinctly new features. It proudly dons a new hood design, new front fenders, a redesigned fascia, new headlamps and a chrome-accented, seven-slotted classic front grille. The new Compass, with all its latest enhancements, now possesses a more serious and formal character than its predecessor, but without losing its classy and sophisticated look.

Its front lights have been substantially improved, with its headlights now consisting of quad-reflector lamps, while the fog lamps have been replaced with more powerful projector lamps. Under the hood, the Jeep Compass’ engine has also received a decent power upgrade. With all these new features, the 2011 Jeep Compass now radiates a more elegantly serious and powerful appearance, further emphasizing its edge as an all-terrain / all-weather vehicle.

Noticeable in the Jeep Compass is its aesthetically improved exterior design with additional metalwork accents, further providing a touch of elegance and toughness at the same time, perfect for both on-road and off-road driving. Furthermore, additional protective cladding has been added unto the Compass’ exterior, primarily to shield its passengers from debris in case of extreme weather or in off-road driving conditions. Interestingly, this protective cladding also contributes to the new Jeep Compass’ enhanced look.

The Compass’ rear exterior has been given a design upgrade, with a new sleek-looking rear fascia, aerodynamic body-color spoiler and attractively classy LED taillights. For the Limited edition Compass, a striking accent trim is added to the step pad while the exhaust tailpipe is given an interesting chrome highlight. As for the Compass’ roof, a new, less-imposing roof rail system was installed, with just the right amount of chrome accents. Lastly, two options are available for the wheels of the 2011 Compass- standard 17-inch aluminum wheels or the 18-inch aluminum or chrome-plated wheels for the Limited Compass models.
