Compact SUVs are the most competitive segment in today’s market and many carmakers tend to make more frequent updates in order to be more competitive. For example, Jeep updated Compass this year and brought a lot of interesting changes that should keep this mode competitive for some more time, until it gets a full redesign. According to the latest reports, the full redesign will happen in about two years and it is expected that the 2024 Jeep Compass will represent the final production year of the generation.
Therefore, we believe that there will be no significant changes. The last production year usually brings no updates, so we expect the 2024 Jeep Compass to bring familiar design and features. This is a crossover that looks nice and now features a pretty upscale interior. We also like its off-road performance, as well as a pretty intuitive infotainment system.
As no significant updates are expected, we presume that the launch date will be scheduled for the last quarter of 2023.
2024 Jeep Compass Design
Design-wise, the 2024 Jeep Compass will continue in the same way, with all the changes that were introduced with the 2022 model. This particularly refers to the styling updates, as we saw things like a revised front grille, new headlights, bumpers etc. All these updates made the vehicle look fresher and more modern, but we won’t exclude the possibility to see further upgrades, though significantly more subtle, in terms of new color options and similar things.
On the other hand, the mechanical aspect of the vehicle remained the same. So, you may count on a comfortable, though not particularly engaging ride. What makes this SUV stand out from the crowd is its great off-road performance. You may count on goodies like four-wheel drive, and a Selec-Terrain management system with Auto, Snow, Sand, and Mud settings. The Trackhawk trim adds even more off-road upgrades, such as low-range gearing, hill descent control, Rock traction control, skid plates, tow hooks etc.
The recent update has brought a lot of novelties, especially to the inside. There is a completely new interior design. You can see a completely new dashboard, while most of the cabin is now wrapped with high-quality, soft-touch materials. Furthermore, there is a new pretty massive infotainment screen that, along with other tech goodies, makes this interior look pretty upscale.
So, we expect things to remain the same. The seating configuration will also remain the same. This SUV comes with two comfortable rows of seats, which both accommodate adult passengers pretty well. The front seats also offer decent support, while the driving position is good.
On the other hand, the main drawback of this cabin is the small cargo area, which offers no more than 27.2 cubic feet of room behind the back row, and 59.8 cubic feet of the total cargo volume.
New features on the list of standard equipment are a typical thing for yearly updates, so the 2024 Jeep Compass might come with some of them as well. Still, most things should remain the same. So, base models should come with goodies like remote keyless entry, an 8.4-inch touch screen, a six-speaker stereo, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, three USB ports, satellite radio, and voice recognition. Among available upgrades, you may expect to see things like a 7-inch or 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.1-inch touch screen, a nine-speaker Alpine audio system, wireless device charging, an additional USB port, remote navigation start, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a panoramic sunroof.
When it comes to safety, all models should come standard with goodies like a rearview camera, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert etc. Also, count on upgrades like adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, park assist, surround-view camera, traffic sign recognition, rain-sensing windshield wipers, automatic high beams etc.
2024 Jeep Compass Engine
The 2024 Jeep Compass will continue with a single engine option in the offer. We are talking about the good-old 2.4-liter naturally-aspirated inline-four, which puts out around 180 horsepower. It’s not particularly capable but does the job well when it comes to daily commuting. It comes paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission, which also works decent enough.
What’s not all that great is fuel economy. The best you can get is 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, which is pretty low by the segment standards, where some of the most efficient competitors are models like Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue, Honda CR-V etc.
2024 Jeep Compass Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2024 Jeep Compass will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of 2023, without bigger changes in terms of price. Therefore, base versions should go around 27.000 dollars.
