Unsurpassed off-road capability+
Freedom Drive ITM
This system provides you with active, full-time 4x4 capability with Brake Traction Control and selectable LOCK mode. Freedom Drive ITM features an Electronically Controlled Coupling that monitors wheel slippage and transfers torque to the axle that can use it most. In tough conditions, it can be locked 50/50 front/rear for added low-speed capability and control.
Freedom Drive II®
This system takes Freedom Drive ITM and adds a selectable locking Off-Road mode with Hill Descent Control along with grade-sensing features and a boost to the crawl ratio. When not in low-speed Off-Road LOCK mode, torque is adjusted on demand for added response and efficiency. This system's capability and control handles difficult road situations both on- and off-road, including deep snow, mud and up to 19 inches of water+. Included with Freedom Drive II® Off-Road Group.
Safety & Security
Over 30 available safety and security features Protection when and where you need it
The Compass uses sophisticated airbag technology and an energy-absorbing design to help protect the driver and passengers. Six advanced, multistage driver and front-passenger airbags+, including standard supplemental front seat-mounted side airbags, offer protection when you need it most. Side-impact door beams, ultra-high-strength steel crossbeams and engineered crush zones at the front of your vehicle help absorb excess energy and decrease the transfer of energy to occupants in the event of a collision.
A helping hand
Compass is equipped with a number of standard and available active safety and security features designed to help you stay out of harm's way. Electronic Stability Control+ senses over-steer or under-steer and then automatically applies brakes and throttle to help put you back on track. A four-wheel antilock brake system offers improved vehicle control and decreases stopping distances on both dry and slippery surfaces. Brake Assist applies maximum braking power during panic braking, and Electronic Roll Mitigation+ uses innovative sensors that determine when a rollover may occur and applies braking force to help reduce the likelihood of an accident.
