The New Jeep Compass Comes with Some Unbelievable Tech Features
If you’ve spent any time at your local Fox Lake Jeep dealership recently, you’ll already know that the new lineup of Jeep vehicles contains an absolutely astounding range of tech components. The variety can often seem overwhelming. Luckily, Ray Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is here to help break it all down for you, one amazing Jeep vehicle at a time. Here’s what you can expect out of the all-new Jeep Compass Trailhawk:
Obviously, Jeeps are best known for their off-roading capabilities and their reputation for high functionality. But the automaker is quickly rising to the top of the pack in terms of technological innovation. Nowhere is this clearer than inside the 2017 Jeep Compass Trailhawk 4x4. (If you’re interested in the 2018 model, don’t worry–the in-cabin technology is the same inside the 2018 Compass Trailhawk.)
The new Trailhawk boasts a revamped and meticulously refined Uconnect infotainment system. The Trailhawk 4x4 comes standard with an 8.4-inch touch screen system with a remarkably intuitive layout and controls. The new Uconnect system has been upgraded to include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, an updated interface, and amplified cloud-connected features.
Drivers can enjoy extra apps (like the popular Yelp local search app) via a subscription-based Uconnect Access package. The package is free for one year and costs $149.99 per year (or $14.99 per month) afterwards. If you ask us, it’s worth the extra cost since you also get a ton of other fun features, including vehicle health reports, a remote app, voice texting and more. Of course, you can always opt for the less expensive Sirius Travel Link package which is free for the first five years of Jeep ownership and includes on-demand traffic forecasts, weather, fuel updates, and sports information.
Jeep dealerships were thrilled to learn that the new Trailhawk 4x4 also comes with an on-demand Wi-Fi hot spot through the Uconnect system. The hot spot is available through the Uconnect Access subscription and allows everyone inside the vehicle to stay connected to family and friends no matter where you take your Trailhawk. You can even use the Wi-Fi hotspot to utilize Jeep’s hands-free voice-activated text messaging feature.
The new Jeep Compass Trailhawk 4x4’s awesome tech suite is capped off with a fresh, new 7-inch digital instrument cluster. The Multiview Driver Information Digital Cluster can be customized to match the needs of each individual driver and offers a variety of vehicle information via its full-color graphics display.
