Question Question for 2009 Jeep Compass Sport owners

I'm currently reading a great book by Joel C. Rosenberg titled "The Persian Gamble." In chapter 21, Marcus Ryker, the main character, steals a 2009 Jeep Compass Sport from a petrol station in Russia so that he and his colleagues can escape from the bad guys. However, in chapter 23, Marcus switches on the 4 wheel drive on the Jeep.

All the Sport Jeep models that I've owned have only had front wheel drive. However, I didn't own a Jeep Compass in 2009; I owned a Jeep Liberty. So did the 2009 Jeep Compass Sport models have 4WD? I want to make sure they didn't before I gently point out the error to the author. A link to proof that the 2009 Jeep Compass Sport was indeed front wheel drive only would also be very much appreciated. Thanks, everyone!


I'm a Jeep girl:
2018 Jeep Compass
2014 Jeep Compass
2010 Jeep Patriot
2005 Jeep Liberty
2004 Jeep Liberty

I never owned a 2009 Compass, but I think the book is right. If you go to the drop-down menu includes Sport and Sport 4WD.
