    2021 Jeep Compass Gets New Engine, Updates In Europe

    2021 Jeep Compass Gets New Engine And Range Of Updates In Europe
    It's also built in Europe, too.

    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).

    Honestly, I can't tell if there's much changed stylistically, but the new engines are welcome news.

    If Jeep ever drops the 2.4L "Tigershark" motor in the States, one of these updated, forced-induction engines (with a few more horsepower) would be welcome news.

    So wait...you get a new Jeep and you already need a new engine? I sure wouldn't write about it!

    Tigershark is still around? That thing was past its prime 10 years ago. At least rename it Guppy or Salamander.

    Autocar gives it as the 2020 model changes - not that unusual to introduce a new engine during a mid-cycle update.

    You have issues with the 2.4 Minnow mill? I believe it's named after Gilligan's tour boat. Does that make you feel better?

    I still love the looks of the new Compass, and would be interested if they'd put a 2.0T engine in it. I don't get why this is so hard for everyone.

    I think their upcoming Protractor model gets that motor. Check back with me after I've finished my popcorn, more details coming!
