Jeep Compass + sand dunes = cool video

Take a handfull of Jeep Compasses and a camcorder out to the Oregon Coast to play on the sand dunes.

Yep.. it looks like the Compass has reached the Oregon dunes before the Patriot.

Looks like they handeled themselves pretty well in the sand, too!

That may be the most pathetic video of "offroading" I have ever seen in my life. Seriously.

Why pretend. That is not an offroad vehicle. Leave it on the roadways. I'm speechless.

I'd like to have seen some starts from a stopped position. I use my XJ to drive on the beach and surf fish. Deep sand that you need to lower tire pressures to below 20psi. Almost any vehicle can drive in sand like that if speed is maintained. I worry that a CVT tranny won't work for my application, but 30 mpg has got me wondering.

Too bad your leaving. I'm getting about 25 mpg out of mine with the CVT and only 700 miles on it but, I guess you'll never know that. Edmund's is a British revue, their test units aren't broken in either and they probably keep them floored all of the time. Any 4X4 to the British is called (unaffectionately) a "Chelsea Tractor". What can you say.
