Six Speed Automatic Transmission Coming to the 2014 Jeep Compass

Cookeville, TN drivers looking for more fuel economy and improved driving feel should consider the 2014 Jeep Compass

Online PR News – 08-March-2013 – Cookeville – For 2014, the capable and versatile Jeep Compass compact SUV will enjoy new exterior styling, an improved interior, and a more fuel efficient six-speed automatic transmission. With these updates, the Compass will continue a long tradition of drivability in off-road and inclement-weather conditions, fuel efficiency, and attractive, modern design.

The all-new six-speed PowerTech automatic transmission has been designed independently by PowerTech and refined to fit the underpinnings and the characteristics of the Jeep Cherokee. This new transmission is controlled electronically and has been developed with fuel efficiency and performance in mind. Close ratio gears provide quick acceleration from any speed and nearly undetectable shift points for a more comfortable ride. The final gear ratio for highway cruising allows for low engine speeds and significantly reduced CO2 output. As a result, the Compass is expected to return 30 mpg on the highway.

“Jeep Compass provides consumers with a combination of fuel economy, safety, value – and, of course, Jeep capability – in the important compact-SUV segment,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO — Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “For 2014, Jeep Compass buyers will enjoy their driving experience even more, courtesy of an all-new six-speed transmission and a refined interior and exterior design.”

Inside, an array of standard features ensures that drivers and passengers alike will experience an enjoyable and relaxing ride in any environment. Some of the more exciting standard features include A/C, power/heated outside mirrors, power locks and windows, fog lamps, keyless entry, cruise control, illuminated cup holders, outside temp. display, a 60/40 fold-flat rear seat, a removable/rechargeable light, and hill start assist. Also included standard is safety technology like ABS, electronic stability control, active head restraints, electronic roll mitigation, and front-seat-mounted side air bags to make sure that all occupants are safe in an emergency situation.
