2011 Jeep Compass Priced at $19,295

The 2011 Jeep Compass goes on sale next month with a starting price of $19,295 (excluding a $700 destination fee), according to Chrysler.

That’s a significant bump from the $15,365 MSRP for the 2010 Compass, but we sort of expected this because the 2011 model features a lot more standard equipment, which includes air conditioning, power windows and locks, heated power side mirrors, keyless entry, fog lamps, cruise control and tinted glass. None of that came standard on the base 2010 Compass.

The Compass is available in three trims this year: base, Latitude and Limited. The Limited trim starts at $24,295 and comes with features such as automatic climate control and leather seats.

The front end of the 2011 Compass has been completely redesigned to look more upscale, like the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. There are standard LED taillamps, new wheel designs and a “Trail Rated” drivetrain, like what’s in the 2011 Jeep Patriot. For more model changeover info, check out our First Look.

Base and Latitude trims come standard with a 158-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 23/29 mpg city/highway with a five-speed manual transmission. On the Limited, there’s a 172-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder that also gets 23/29 mpg.

All models come with antilock brakes, electronic stability control and tire pressure warning. Side curtain airbags are standard, but side front thorax airbags remain a $250 standalone option.
