Mopar didn't leave Jeep out of the customized fun here at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show. Based on the Compass, the 2012 Mopar True North boasts a two-inch suspension lift from Rocky Road Suspensions and 16-inch matte black wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich All Terrain tires. Other exterior tidbits include a matte black grille surround and lower body cladding.

There aren't any changes to the standard Compass drivetrain that we know of, but the interior is fitted with a custom center console that features pitch and roll inclinometer gauges. Finishing it off is an audio system sourced from Kicker that Jeep says "transform [it] into a rolling high-end sound studio," which would appear to be completely unrelated to its intended purpose.

2012 Mopar Jeep Compass 'True North'

Like all Trail Rated® Jeep models, the Jeep Compass is a capable off-road machine. With the Mopar Jeep Compass "True North" model, Mopar further improves its off-road form and function.

The exterior features a matte black finish on the roof, wheel flares, lower fascia, door cladding and black grille with body color inserts. Other exterior touches include black-headlamp and fog-lamp surrounds, rear fog lights, custom front and rear brush bars and custom rock rails. Matte black 16-inch alloy wheels with BF Goodrich All Terrain tires and a 2-inch lift kit from Rocky Road Suspensions add some additional off-road go.

The interior received lots of attention from Mopar and renowned audio component manufacturer Kicker. The entire audio system, including front and rear speakers, amplifier, sub-woofer and lift gate speakers are provided by Kicker, and transform Jeep Compass into a rolling high-end sound studio. A custom center stack gauge pod that houses pitch and roll inclinometer gauges, add to the vehicle's off-road credentials. A Mopar bright pedal kit, door-sill guards, rear-cargo tray, shift knob and neoprene seats complement each other while enhancing the quality feel of the cabin.

      Very cool makeover. The only question I have of this car is off road prowess. I think it would be soooo much more attractive with a 4 cyl diesel engine with gobs of torque.

      Normally, I don't like the Compass, in fact, I hate, but I can get behind this. Would I take it over a Wrangler, or XJ? Of course not, but it certainly looks far more like a Jeep should, than any other Compass I have ever seen. Maybe, if they had offered a Compass, and Patriot, like this from the get-go, more people would have had respect for these vehicles. Who knows? It might have even helped with sales.

      A valiant effort to make the Compass cool, but you can't polish a turd.

      Its "intended purpose"? What is that, to be a taller Caliber?

      The wheel and tire together just look like too much black, though I doubt all that tire shine is helping.

      "which would appear to be completely unrelated to its intended purpose." For real! That doesn't really fit with the other upgrades.
