People from Gabetz spy unit grabbed the refreshed Jeep Compass on the road. The camouflage hides a lot, but there’s a little glimpse of the cabin.
In addition to the striped camouflage pattern, the Compass has a coating on the front end for additional concealment. Only the top edge of the grid is visible. Unfortunately, this makes it impossible to determine the differences for the nose.
At the rear, the Compass receives a new set of taillights. Rather than having a larger lamp around the outer edges, the pieces are the same height across the width. Camouflage hides if there are additional changes for the rear end.
A profile photo of the Compass captures a glimpse of the cabin. It’s possible to see a tablet-like infotainment screen that rises above the dashboard. The layout is completely different from the current Uconnect screen of the crossover.
It is not clear if there would be any powertrain modifications accompanying this update. In Europe, the 2021 Compass receives a new 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine delivering 130 hp (97 kilowatts) or 150 hp (112 kW) in the S trim. The Compass 4xe is also on the way with a plug-in hybrid powertrain available. with 190 or 240 hp (142 or 179 kW) and an estimated EV range of 31 miles (50 kilometers).
In Jeep’s five-year plan from 2018, it was stated that the refreshed compass would arrive by 2022. The company has already introduced changes for the 2021 model in Europe. Therefore, we expect the updated crossover to debut next year and will likely be ready for the 2022 model year switchover in the first half of the year.
