The new 2018 Compass gets its first Easter Jeep Safari concept

The 2018 Jeep Compass is completely new this year, ushering in a new era of Jeep history without the terribly awful Patriot and first-generation Compass. A new chassis, exterior design, and interior make the new Compass far superior to the outgoing model. Understandably then, we’re excited to see this – Jeep’s first special edition concept based on the 2018 Compass. It’s called the Trailpass and it uses Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts to gain off-road capability and a general improvement in awesomeness.

The Trailpass features a 1.5-inch suspension lift for better ground clearance. It also affords more room for larger wheels and tires. Jeep chose 18-inch wheels wrapped in Continental’s new all-terrain tire, the TerrainContact. The wheels also boast an orange-painted pocket that matches the tow hooks and badges.

The rest of the exterior is dressed up with an olive drab paint color, accented by a black hood and roof. The hood has olive drab graphics that add some character. The mirror caps also match the gloss black wheels for an added touch. Up top, the Compass has a roof rack from Thule that’s available through Mopar. Mounted inside are traction mats for getting out of sticky situations. Rock sliders protect the rocker panels under the doors, while looking like a factory piece.

There’s more going on with the Trailpass concept, so keep reading for more.

What makes the Jeep Trailpass Concept special

Inside, the Trailpass has custom Katzkin leather seats and center armrest. The dash is dressed up with body-color accent bezels, while JPP all-weather floor mats keep the carpet clean. Power comes from the stock 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine and nine-speed automatic transmission.

Not much else has been changed on this Compass, but that’s the point. The Trailpass Concept is designed to show customers what’s possible through Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts. Many of these items can be ordered from a local Jeep dealership and included in the purchase price and financing of a new vehicle. What’s more, they are backed by Jeep’s new vehicle warranty at that point.
