- The Jeep Compass gets a new engine for 2023, a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four to replace the old 2.4-liter four-cylinder.
- It produces 270 hp and 295 pound-feet of torque, a big boost compared to the old engine’s 177 hp.
- The 2023 Compass starts at $31,590 for the Sport and ranges up to $40,340 for the High Altitude.
Jeep is getting ready to bump the Compass SUV’s power output with a new engine for 2023. According to a document we found on the EPA’s website, the 2023 Compass gets the same 270-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four found in the upcoming 2023 Dodge Hornet. (This engine was also supposed to be in the Alfa Romeo Tonale, but now that model will reportedly only be offered with a plug-in hybrid setup in the US)
The 2.0-liter’s 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque is a big bump over the Compass’ previous engine, a naturally aspirated 2.4-liter inline-four with 177 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard, and the previous front-wheel drive model has been dropped.
Pricing for the 2023 Compass starts at $31,590, which is just $1210 more than the equivalent 2022 model — not a bad deal considering the new powertrain. The off-road oriented Trailhawk model starts at $37,340 and the loaded High Altitude is $40,340.
Jeep hasn’t released official details about the 2023 Compass yet, so we don’t know if there are any other significant changes in store. It did get a facelift for 2022 that included refreshed styling and a new infotainment screen. We’ve reached out to Jeep for comment and will update this post as more information becomes available.
