The upcoming 2023 Jeep Compass will be more advanced than the outgoing model. According to reports, this SUV will get a new interior and a revamped front end, making it more competitive than ever. We also anticipate that the Jeep Compass will be offered in five trim levels once again.
This modern SUV offers the same four-cylinder engine option. The FWD system is standard on Sport and Latitude versions, so nothing will change in this category. Of course, AWD setup remains optional. As before, Trailhawk will remain the most impressive version of the Compass SUV.
Jeep Compass Facelift
Reportedly, Jeep will introduce mild visual upgrades. The new 2023 Jeep Compass is nonetheless appealing, and its front fascia is evocative of the more prominent Grand Cherokee, complete with the characteristic seven-slat grille. In general, depending on the trim, the appearance of the Compass can be altered slightly.
The Trailhawk model, for example, has a more rugged exterior and impressive off-road capabilities. Furthermore, the Limited trim has a more expensive, upmarket appearance. The Compass is proportionally midway between the subcompact and compact segments. Whatsoever, Compass sits between Renegade and Cherokee SUVs. In reality, Compass is still a compact model competing with Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V.
The next 2023 Jeep Compass has a standard 8.4-inch infotainment screen that’s simple to operate and comes standard with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. The UConnect system is one of the best because of its excellent graphics and user-friendly menus. There is also an optional and larger 10.1-inch screen available.
The Compass model has a solid cabin space. There’s ample space inside for four adults, and there are 27 cubic feet of cargo space beneath the second row. We like the list of standard and optional safety features. Moreover, if you opt for Trailhawk or Limited trim levels, you’ll get an even more impressive cabin design with additional luxury.
Hybrid Powertrain Reportedly in the Works
The forthcoming 2023 Jeep Compass is powered by the same 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine mated to either a 6-speed automatic or 9-speed automatic transmission. As before, Compass provides a standard FWD system and optional AWD setup. Regardless of the mix, you opt for, the Compass still lacks power.
177 horsepower isn’t bad, but many customers are hoping to see an improvement in the near future. Luckily, we can read a lot of speculations regarding the mild-hybrid powertrain. Reportedly, Compass could gain this 48-volt hybrid mix that will improve Compass’ power, acceleration, and efficiency.

The base price of the 2023 Jeep Compass starts at $25,000, while the mid-grade Latitude variant starts at $26,500. The higher-grade Latitude Lux, which comes standard with AWD costs around $30,000.
