The Compass Sport is powered by a standard 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder power unit with 177hp and 172lb-ft of torque that is paired to a 9-speed automatic gearbox. There's also an optional 6-speed manual transmission. Standard on the Sport is the Jeep Active Drive System, which can distribute the entire engine power output to the rear wheels, when necessary, thus enabling optimal grip in low-traction situations.
