Those exploring the far corners of the world have plenty of options for vehicles here at Landmark Dodge of Morrow, with a certain select pair enjoying their own feature on the Stellantis official press website this week. The Jeep Renegade and Jeep Compass will welcome a new addition to their family with the Upland special edition, with a perfect blend of off-road aesthetics and legendary Jeep capability along with a few other upgrades.
The brand-new High-Altitude e-hybrid trim is now available on the Jeep Compass, offering up its combination of day-to-day practicality with a luxury touch. The Renegade and Compass Upland special edition is offered on the 240-horsepower 4Xe plug-in hybrid version, offering enhanced performance and an exhilarating drive for any setting. With its fuel-efficient 1.3-liter turbo petrol engine and six-speed automatic transmission, this architecture offers up the best of both worlds with an electric motor and internal combustion engine.
The increased torque courtesy of the electric propulsion system is ideal for the demands of off-road terrain, and cruising through the city is ideal due to the zero-emission benefits of full-electric mode. The Compass High Altitude special edition provides a very versatile and easy-to-live-with hybrid driving experience, and is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The e-Hybrid is always primed to deliver full electric propulsion at launch, at lower speeds, and when cruising at an average pace. Additional EV features include Silent Start, Boost & Load Point Shift, and Electric Drive.
Beginning with the solid base of the limited trim, the Renegade, and Compass Upland and Compass High Altitude deliver awesome goods such as fog lamps for your next adventure, along with full LED headlights with auto-high beams and roof rails. Inside you’ll be monitoring and manning all the vitals with a seven-inch TFT cluster display and Uconnect with an 8.4-inch touchscreen on the Renegade, while Compass Upland and High Altitude are equipped with a 10.25” display and 10/1” touchscreen.
On the Compass, a fitting bronze MetaKrome finish enhances the dashboard’s profile, and each model boasts a Techno-leather steering wheel. The Compass High Altitude special edition features uniquely darkened black details, along with body-colored bumpers and mudguards combined with 19” glossy black alloy wheels. The interior benefits from the well-appointed red stitching and the two-way powered lumbar adjustment.
Safety and security features are so many drivers’ sense of extra protection with a high-tech touch, and the Jeep Renegade and Compass are equipped with standard forward collision warning and active lane management system, along with adaptive cruise control. Each campsite and canyon-ready model can be matched with a two-tone black roof for an even more personalized appearance. The Renegade was ranked by the Edmunds.com review team as “a fun little SUV which heaps more personality than its primary rivals.”
The Drive.com also conveyed after test driving that the 2023 Jeep Compass “wears its cape proudly and is a segment-leading competitor in the compact off-road crossover market.” We hope to see you during our favorite season of spring here at Landmark to test drive one of these two outrageously on point excursion vehicles!
