As we stated in our first drive, the 2017 Jeep Compass is a vast improvement over its predecessor, due in no small part to its reasonable off-road capabilities compared to other compact CUVs. Keen to capitalize on the crossover’s off-road aspirations, Jeep will offer more than 90 different Mopar accessories, allowing owners to customize the Compass for their own unique demands and activities.
Key among those features are black-painted rock rails, 18-inch wheels, a rooftop cargo basket, and hood and bodyside graphics. For the Compass’ interior, the parts company offers all-weather floor mats, cargo-organizing totes, a bright pedal kit, and decorative door sill guards, among many other bits and bobs. Were it our own cash, we’d be tempted to kit our 2017 Compass out like the one seen in the lead image above: a gear basket, matte-black hood graphic, hockey-stick side graphic, and molded splash guards. Mopar also offers a smartphone app for compatible vehicles, as well as a vehicle tracking system and Wi-Fi.
Mopar accessories are either dealer- or owner-installed, although Jeep retailers can fold the price of accessories and installation into the buyer’s lease or finance agreement if the accessories are installed pre-sale. The line of accessories will be available when the 2017 Jeep Compass hits dealers in March, starting at $22,090.
