Limited-edition Jeep Compass Altitude available for as low as $22,190

Article by Christian A., on March 27, 2012

Jeep launches its latest limited-edition Compass Altitude, which continues the customized "from-the-factory" appearance first showcased in the Grand Cherokee concept revealed in January. This Altitude variant is available at a U.S. MSRP starting $23,940 for 4x4 models and $22,190 for 4x2 models. It comes in Black, Deep Cherry Red, Bright White and Mineral Gray.

Compass' trademark seven-slot Jeep grille and headlamps are surrounded by a characteristic black gloss finish. This theme flows into a black step pad and the black roof rails. The Compass Altitude comes on the exclusive 18-inch black gloss aluminum wheels clad in Firestone BSW all-season performance tires. Three drivetrain configurations are available with the Jeep Compass Altitude model including Freedom Drive II Off-Road and Freedom Drive I packages.

The vehicle is equipped with power heated exterior mirrors and heated seats, continuously variable automatic transaxle, remote start and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls. It is also equipped with a massive array of security and safety features like electronic stability control, Hill-start Assist with manual transmission, side-curtain air bags for all rows and electronic roll mitigation.

The new Compass features a new hood, new fascia, new headlamps, new front fenders, and a new grille with little chrome details surrounding the traditional 7 slots on all Jeep vehicles. These give the Compass a more serious, but sophisticated, face. It also boasts improved forward lighting performance with quad reflector headlamps as well as fog lamps that are high-output projector lamps now.

Moreover, the hood is now enhanced with subtle power bulge, adding an element of muscle. The result is one vehicle that projects a much more serious attitude and that communicates the Compass' capability to drive in all driving conditions and all weather.

When it comes to the Compass’ exterior, new brightwork is evident throughout, lending an upscale touch to the vehicle without compromising its off-road performance. For the 2011 model, protective cladding was added. This band enables the vehicle to fend off debris while driving off-road or in challenging weather conditions, as well as provides a new look.

The new Jeep Compass also got enhancements to its rear in the form of a new rear fascia, a few subtle and upscale touches like new LED taillamps, and new body-color rear spoiler. For the Limited model, new touches include bright trim on its step pad as well as a chrome exhaust tip. Topping off all these improvements are new roof rails that have been designed with slimmed down look and with little brightwork. Additionally, the 2011 Compass features new, standard 17” aluminum wheels, with 18” chrome-clad or aluminum wheels available on the Limited models.
