2023 Jeep Compass Overview

What’s new:

  • Changes to the powertrain could happen in 2023.
  • A part of Compass’s second generation, which came out in 2017

The 2023 Jeep Compass is a small crossover SUV in the Jeep lineup between the Renegade and Cherokee. Last year, Jeep changed the look of the inside and outside of the Compass, added more technology, and made more standard features available. Jeep hasn’t said anything official about 2023 yet, but we expect the Compass to get all-new powertrains, possibly including a hybrid or plug-in hybrid. The Jeep Compass 4xe plug-in hybrid is already for sale in other parts of the world. That would be much better than the current engine, which is weak and poorly made.

There were only so many other SUVs in this market for a while because most competitors were more minor or significant than the Compass. No, no longer. Some of Invoice Pricing’s favorite competitors are the Volkswagen Taos, Mazda CX-30, and Chevrolet Trailblazer because they offer a lot of comfort and space for the money. But it would help if you still thought about the Compass, especially the Compass Trailhawk, which is better than average off-road. They’re better deals all around.


  • For such a small car, it has a lot of seats.
  • The technology is easy to use and fun to play with.
  • The Trailhawk model does very well off-road.


  • The current four-cylinder engine doesn’t have enough power.
  • The nine-speed transmission moves slowly.

Jeep hasn’t told anything official about the 2023 Compass at the time of this writing. If anything changes, we’ll change our recommendation, but based on the Compass from last year, we recommend going from the base Sport trim to the Latitude trim. For a little more money, the Latitude has a few extra features that make the Compass easier to use every day.

Jeep Compass variants include

There are five trim levels for the Jeep Compass subcompact crossover: Sport, Latitude, Latitude Lux, Limited, and Trailhawk. They are powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine producing 177 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque, and other drivetrain options are on the way. An all-wheel drive is an option for the Sport and Latitude models, which come with front-wheel drive as standard. The Latitude Lux, Limited, and Trailhawk all come with AWD as standard. Front-wheel-drive cars have an automatic transmission with six speeds, while all-wheel-drive vehicles have an automatic transmission with nine speeds.
