And its new infotainment system.
Jeep has been up to some impressive tricks in the last few months with the Grand Wagoneer Concept being one of the highlights, but recently spy shots of the facelifted Jeep Compass have got fans talking. The European market got an updated 2021 model with a new turbocharged engine and dual-clutch transmission, and now the facelifted model has been revealed by Jeep. Spy photos of the fresh-faced jeep revealed the SUV's larger seven-slat grille and revised headlights, and now official pics from Jeep give us a better look at the refreshed Compass.
The most notable changes are the redesigned bumper which resembles the one found on the Grand Cherokee SRT, and a set of new foglights adorns the front. The rear looks unchanged. The interior also sees some notable changes in the form of an all-new infotainment system with a metallic frame and a tablet-styled display. Restyled air vents and a new dashboard design with metallic accents and newly upholstered surfaces lifts the cabin up to a more premium-feeling level. Not much else is known about the crossover SUV, and the final picture will only be made clear once the Compass is introduced later in the year, or possibly in 2021.
The 2.4-liter inline-four cylinder engine which produces 184 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque will remain in place and is available with either a six-speed automatic on front-wheel-drive trims or a nine-speed automatic on four-wheel-drive trims. China can expect to see the introduction of a 4xe plug-in hybrid packing an 11.4 kWh battery and a range of approximately 31 miles in EV mode. Currently, the 4xe is only sold in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East and it's still unclear if the car will be sold in the US, but at least the Wrangler 4xe will be making an appearance.
