conditions. This active four-wheel-drive system is recommended for daily use, including slick conditions

Jeep Compass features the proven 2.0-litre I-4 cylinder or 2.4-litre I-4 cylinder engines for the 2013
Jeep Compass Sport and North and the 2.4-litre I-4 cylinder engine standard on Limited models that
provides 172 horsepower and 165 lb.-ft. of torque coupled with the five-speed manual transmission that
delivers excellent 9.0 L/100 km (31 mpg) in the city, and 7.0 L/100 km (40 mpg) on the highway.

This 2.4-litre I-4 cylinder engine has dual variable-valve timing (VVT) on both intake and exhaust
camshafts, which helps optimize the torque curve at all speeds and produces more power, better fuel
economy and smoother, quieter operation than engines without dual VVT. Dual VVT is a technology
that is typically not available on vehicles sold in Canada in the Jeep Compass’ price class.

Jeep Compass also features a standard five-speed manual transaxle on the entry-level Compass Sport
model, North and Limited. A CVT is also available on every Compass model. The Compass’ CVT2 is a
second-generation CVT that Chrysler Group engineers calibrated for precise ratio control. CVT2
contributes to a fuel economy improvement of 6 to 8 per cent compared with a traditional four-speed
automatic. The Compass CVT2 also improves vehicle performance compared with a traditional
automatic transaxle because of optimized gear ratios, especially in the 50–100 km/h range during
passing maneuvers.

When properly equipped, the 2013 Jeep Compass also provides unsurpassed maximum towing up to
907 kg (2,000 lb.).
