 Features that Enhance the Jeep Compass Towing Capacity

  • ParkView® Rear Back-Up Camera -- A standard back-up camera with dynamic gridlines helps you steer clearly when backing up with a trailer in tow.
  • Jeep Compass Towing Package -- The available Trailer Tow Group package for the Jeep Compass provides maximum Jeep towing capacity, thanks in part to a four-pin wiring harness and a Class III tow hitch receiver.
  • Trailer-Optimized Water Sealing-- With high air intakes and special water sealing properties, the Jeep Compass makes it easier to tow your boat or even go water fording while off-roading around Kaukana.
  • Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System - The drive modes that are part of the Selec-Terrain® traction management system in select Compass models help you more easily navigate a variety of road surfaces including Snow, Sand, Mud, and (available) Rock. 
  • Hill Descent Control -- Available hill descent control keeps tabs on your braking, speed, throttle, and more when navigating steep hills. It is offered exclusively on the Compass Trailhawk® configuration. 
  • Jeep® Active Drive Low 4x4 System -- The Jeep Compass Trailhawk® boasts unrivaled 4x4 capability thanks in large part to a slew of standard features such as a rear-axle disconnect, which lets you switch between 2WD for more MPGs or 4WD for increased traction when towing.
