I have a 2018 Compass Limited. I see that there is no engine protection from the road. I was surprised by this, as even the 2013 base model Dodge Dart that I owned had this feature. I really like it, as it keeps your engine looking brand new, and would obviously help prevent rust, and hose/wire rot from the tremendous amount of road salt that is used where I live. What is the name of the part that I should request when ordering from Chrysler? Splash guard?

Is a bottom engine cover or skid plate an option on the Compass when you buy one, outside of the Trailhawk?

I don't think its an official dealer option but at least one forum member here has had success installing the trailhawk skid plates on his non-trailhawk and he is happy as can be (look for Mudman1's threads). They are nice to have no doubt but they can be double-edged swords, less stuff gets into the engine area but also less stuff gets out, still get dust and gunk buildup either way, just my opinion.
