We can give it up to Jeep for at least trying to provide an affordable SUV. But the days of entry-level priced vehicles starting at a reasonable price are long gone. Even the Ford Maverick starts at $23,400. In comparison, the 2024 Jeep Compass feels expensive. 

How much does the 2024 Jeep Compass cost?

The 2024 Jeep Compass starts at $28,400, and the top-spec Trailhawk takes the price up to $36,395. The starting price may seem like it has wiggle room before hitting the $30,000 mark, but the $1,595 destination fee brings it up to $29,995. 

That saves it from starting under $30,000 by a whole five dollars. Also, we aren’t accounting for the potential dealership fees and markups that may be added. 

The Compass is the cheapest Jeep model in the lineup since the unforgivable death of the Jeep Renegade. But still, the 2023 Renegade starts at $27,850 before the $1,595 destination fee takes it up to $29,445. 

On the other end of the spectrum, the 2024 Jeep Grand Wagoneer starts at $91,495, and the top-spec Series III model increases the price to $112,595. The $2,000 destination fee brings the starting price to $93,495.

The 2024 Jeep Compass is well-equipped with roof rails, standard AWD, and plenty of safety features, but would something more affordable be more appealing?
