2015 Jeep Compass Altitude is a robust vehicle with the typical Jeep-like off- road appearance. Nevertheless, the automaker has introduced features that make it very sophisticated. Hence, the Jeep is all set to rule the city roads with equal reliability.
Exterior and Interior
The Altitude has the look that challenges you to go for an adventure. Its dimensions are impressive; it is 175.1inches long with a width of 71.4inches and a height of 65inches. The base curb is 3345lbs and a towing capacity of 1000lbs. The aluminum wheels give vehicle the much-desired sophistication. The wide range of colors like the deep cherry red, granite crystal, billet silver, and black make the jeep even more stylish. You may choose a ‘soft’ shade for the jeep but its design will never allow it to look dainty.
The seats of the jeep that can accommodate up to 5 people offer optimum comfort with their styling and upholstery. They are covered with ultra-comfortable McKinley cloth and vinyl. The rear seats can be folded and a space measuring 53.6 cu. ft. can be created for stashing cargo. Optional features include keyless entry, doors with power locks, power driver mirror, and electrochromic rear view mirror. Standard features that are quite fancy include lighted cup holders, speed control, and heated front row seats. The rear seat heat ducts do the finest job of spreading the heat evenly inside the car.
Engine and Mileage
It is a 4-wheel drive with a 4-cylinder engine that works on CVT. The engine promises 172hp with a torque of 165lb.ft. During tests, the engine has been found to be making a typical unusual noise. The automaker claims its biggest advantage is fuel efficiency – a feature that almost every driver wishes to have in his car. The CVT picks up the gear automatically based on a variety of factors like vehicle speed and engine. The selected gear is the best one that offers highest fuel saving. Research has shown that such an engine can increase fuel economy by 6-8%. Its mpg is fixed at 21 on city roads and 27 on highways.
Price and Release Data of 2015 Jeep Compass Altitude
The base price of this jeep will be $20,990 and it is expected to be available for you around the middle of 2015.
