The 2011 calendar year marks Jeep’s 70th anniversary.
The brand has survived multiple owners to reach where it is today since the first Willys MB U.S. Army Jeep rolled out off the factory floor in 1941. For the 2011 model year, Jeep can celebrate with the incredible sales success of the new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, not to mention the significant improvements made to models like the 2011 Patriot and Compass.
Jeep is preparing a 70th Anniversary Edition of the refreshed 2011 Jeep Compass. The compact crossover will have a number of exclusive and upscale additions you won’t find on other Sport, Latitude, and Limited trims. Unique 18-inch wheels should add to the Compass’ curbside appeal while you’ll find 70th Anniversary badges on the exterior and on the radio screen.
Dark Slate seats have perforated leather inserts embossed with the Jeep logo. More luxurious touches include Chestnut accent stitching and piping on the seats plus Berber floor mats and cargo area with Chestnut binding. The same color is incorporated into the steering wheel stitching, and there’s a dark green cluster overlay.
Black, white, and a unique shade of light brown called Bronze Star are the available colors on the special edition 2011 Compass, which carries a base price of about $25,500. Add all-wheel drive, a nine-speaker sound system, a sunroof, Bluetooth, and a remote start system, and it’s not difficult to drive off Jeep’s lot in a $30,000 Compass.
The 2011 Compass offers a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter or a 172-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Transmission choices include a five-speed manual, CVT, and CVT with low range.
