2021 Jeep Compass Gets New Engine And Range Of Updates In Europe
It's also built in Europe, too.
JUN 04, 2020
The Jeep Compass is coming to Europe. Actually, it was already there, but the new Euro-spec 2021 model is now built there as well. FCA’s plant in Melfi, Italy will be churning out the Compass in five trim levels, and it’s also fitted with a host of tweaks, upgrades, and a new engine. Later in the year there will also be the 4xe plug-in hybrid version.
Let’s talk about that new engine. The 2021 Compass for European markets gets a new turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder that's said to be 30 percent more frugal on fuel than the previous model. For the majority of the range it will make 130 horsepower (97 kilowatts), driving either the front wheels or all four. Five Compass models will be offered – Sport, Longitude, Mighty Eagle, Limited, and S – but the S model gets a retuned version of the tiny mill that makes 150 hp (112 kW).
