You get a lot of extra tech for the asking price.
Positioned between the Renegade and the Cherokee, the Jeep Compass is a more affordable, traditional crossover alternative to the hardcore Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator off-roaders. A facelift model is expected to launch for the 2021 model year to give the compact a refresh and maintain strong sales, but the current model is still being updated in the meantime.
According to Mopar Insiders, Jeep is introducing a new limited-edition package for the Jeep Compass Latitude called the 'Sun and Safety' package. As the imaginative name implies, the Sun and Safety package adds a dual pane panoramic sunroof and a slew of safety tech as standard.
Also included is Jeep's 'Safety and Security Group' package that adds blind spot and cross path detection, a rear park assist, rain sensitive wipers, and security alarm. An 'Advanced Safety Group' package adds safety tech including adaptive cruise control with stop and go, advanced brake assist, auto high beams, full-speed forward collision warning, lane departure warning, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a rearview auto-dimming mirror.
As standard, the Jeep Compass Latitude Sun & Safety also includes 17-inch aluminum wheels with all-season tires and remote start. Available exterior colors include Diamond Black Crystal, Granite Crystal, Billet Silver, Jazz Blue, Laser Blue, Velvet Red, Redline, Olive Green, and White. All colors are available with two-tone options apart from Diamond Black Crystal.
Available for front-wheel drive and 4x4 models, the Jeep Compass Latitude Sun & Safety is available at $28,815 for the former and $30,315 for the latter including a $1,495 destination charge. That makes it only $30 more than the Altitude trim, so you're saving a lot of money considering the safety packages normally cost an extra $945 each. The 17-inch wheels with all-season tires would also normally cost an extra $695, while the dual-pane panoramic sunroof is available as a $1,595 extra on other trims.
It won't be available for very long, however. According to Mopar Insiders, the Jeep Compass Latitude Sun & Safety will only be available until the end of the model year.
