Jeep has made a lot of improvements to its Compass compact crossover throughout its current generation, including a 2022 update that made it a bit more attractive inside and out. And for 2023, Jeep turned its attention to the powertrain.

Now standard on all Compass models is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4, generating 200 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque– healthy increases from last year’s 177 horsepower and 172 lb-ft, which came from a 2.4-liter I4. This new 2.0-liter is paired to an 8-speed automatic, sending power to the now-standard all-wheel drive system.

This year’s powertrain updates stack up on last year’s visual changes, like the updated front fascia, seven-slot grille and wheel designs.

For 2023, the interior boasts a standard 10.1-inch Uconnect 5 infotainment system, available with navigation on certain trims. Analog gauges are standard, but a 10 and a quarter inch digital unit is optional—again, trim dependent. Our Latitude Lux packs heated leather-trimmed seats and a heated steering wheel. Optional packaging included the panoramic sunroof and Alpine sound system.

The affordable 2023 Jeep Compass starts at $30,000 with delivery. A Latitude Lux starts in the mid-30’s, and climbing to the top for a High Altitude model will start closer to 40K.

The Jeep Compass really has found its way over the last generation. We look forward to seeing what’s next and bringing you more Quick Spins… soon!
