Take the 2021 Jeep Compass For a Drive Around New Orleans

The all-new 2021 Jeep Compass is new and improved. The new Compass is more than an off-road vehicle. It is a stylish automobile with improved muscle and can handle the ruggedness that off-road terrain demands, especially outside New Orleans. However, the exterior is aesthetically pleasing, and its performance is unmistakable.

The new Compass offers some of the latest technology and safety features that make any passenger feel safe and secure. Further, you can transport your outdoor equipment such as sports gear, swimwear, rackets, and more in the rear of the Compass.


The newly-designed Jeep Compass is a modernized spin-off of the military Jeep. It has the military Jeep's classic "snout-like" front with rounded curves on its edges. It adds the sloping roof for improved aerodynamics with the roof's height peaking at the front. Its ground clearance has increased and sits atop black 16-inch steel wheels.

The Trailhawk model offers a black, two-tone roof with a higher ground clearance compared to past years. It also provides skid-plates, an anti-glare blackout hood, and red tow hooks, along with off-road-oriented tires. The Limited trim adds chrome accents. One can always add a spare tire in case of emergencies around Metairie.

Interior and Technology

When driving around Kenner and New Orleans, the extreme weather fluctuations call for a need to control the temperature. To quell the temperature challenges, the cabin offers automatic dual-zone climate control. The temperature setting will flow through large round air vents to a designated section of the Compass. There is a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system that is standard on the base model. Higher trims offer a leather-wrapped steering wheel with keyless ignition and entry. Satellite radio is offered, and the sound is emitted through its six-speaker audio system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration are standard.

The cargo area provides 27 cubic feet when the rear seats are upright, but it is expandable to 60 cubic feet when the 60/40-split rear bench seat is folded. The rear seating provides 38.3 inches of legroom, which competes with many mid-size sedans. Higher trims offer front power seats with heating capabilities along with a heated steering wheel, which is needed when driving around Slidell. The new Compass comfortably seats five adults.


All 2021 Compass' offers the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. The engine produces 180 horsepower with 175 pound-feet of torque. It comes loaded with front-wheel drive as standard equipment. The all-wheel-drive option is offered on all trims, except for the Trailhawk with the all-wheel drive as standard. The six-speed automatic transmission is available with front-wheel drive. In contrast, the all-wheel-drive comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission for added capability around Westwego.


The most notably used safety and technological features are Jeep Active Drive. This feature is especially important when driving around the busy streets of New Orleans. Additional safety features include the Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning and the LaneSense Lane Departure Warning systems.
