The Compass might not be the most talked about Jeep model, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve our attention. The compact SUV is currently being prepared for a full facelift and we have some new spy photos to share with you.
This new batch of images shows us a prototype with much less camouflage than before. The front fascia is finally uncovered and we can confirm that the seven-blade top grille will remain largely unchanged, but there appear to be changes to the headlights. These adjustments will be limited to a slightly narrower shape for clusters.
The rear of the car wears even less camouflage and that probably means there won’t be any major overhauls. Still, there could be new touches to the lower part of the bumper, the bumper diffuser and the taillights. Overall, the rear will not exhibit as dramatic changes as the front ones.
Some of the new spy photos give a quick glimpse of the interior and there’s a new tablet-style display for the infotainment system. It sits atop the dashboard which appears to have a completely new shape and design compared to the model still on sale today.
To our knowledge, there won’t be any improvements under the hood either. The current Jeep’s 2.4-liter four-cylinder unit will continue unchanged and transmission selection will also remain. Currently, you can choose from a total of six different trim levels, three transmissions, and ten exterior colors. All of these options should remain available for the refurbished model.
Look for the refreshed Compass that will debut next year and be ready for market release just in time for the 2022 model year.
