2020 Jeep Compass

2020 Jeep Compass

The new Jeep Compass is now manufactured in Italy, allowing Jeep to guarantee an average delivery time from the factory of approximately three weeks, while offering a variety of advanced user-friendly technologies that ensure a more efficient, comfortable and connected everyday driving experience.

The growing success of the model, initially produced for Europe at FCA Toluca plant in Mexico, made it possible to bring production, including that of the new 4xe version featuring plug-in hybrid electric technology, directly to Italy. This marks a further step in the implementation of FCA's 5 billion Euro investment plan for Italy, and in the brand's continuous evolution, while also highlighting both the technological innovation and excellence of the Italian factory, one of the most innovative in the world.

The Jeep Compass produced at the FCA Melfi Plant will be powered by a new 1.3-litre petrol engine delivering 130 hp or 150 hp, ensuring customers a smooth and comfortable driving experience, or alternatively by an updated version of the 120 hp 1.6-litre MultiJet II diesel engine with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction). New features include the new Uconnect Services for improved onboard and off-board connectivity, new styling cues such as six different wheel designs (one specific for each trim and exclusive 19-inch Gloss Black wheels for the Night Eagle model) and a new color palette with five new exterior paints: Ivory Tri-Coat, Colorado Red, Blue Italia, Blue Shade and Techno Green Metallic - all of which can be offered in combination with a black roof. The new tonneau cover is also available on all versions.

New 1.3-litre turbo petrol engine

The new four-cylinder 1.3-litre turbo petrol engine powering the Jeep Compass made at the FCA plant in Melfi, in the Italian region of Basilicata, is part of the new FCA Global Small Engine family, launched in mid-2018 on the Jeep Renegade.

This engine is based on a modular structure and will be available on Jeep Compass in the four-cylinder configuration with two power outputs: 130 hp when paired with a six-speed manual transmission and 150 hp when mated to a six-speed Dual Dry Clutch Transmission (DDCT) - both with front-wheel drive. This is the first application of an automatic transmission in combination with front-wheel drive on Compass, and will make it more accessible to new customers in the C-SUV segment (sales of 4x2 automatics currently account for 28% of the market in Europe). The new 1-3-litre petrol engine complies with Euro 6D Final standards and features a GPF filter (Gasoline Particulate Filter).

The new 1.3-litre turbo petrol engine is designed to offer outstanding performance both on and off-road, while delivering excellent driving comfort. For Compass, the 1.3-litre petrol engine has been updated with a specific turbo-matching which maximizes the engine response at low engine speed and reduces CO2 emissions by up to 27%. The new engine also optimizes fuel consumption by up to 30% (WLTP cycle) compared to the previous petrol 4x4 versions with automatic transmission.
