2021 Jeep Compass Facelift To Be Unveiled On January 7
On January 7, 2021, the heavily updated Jeep Compass facelift for India will be revealed. It only happened a few months after the international launch of the Compass facelift, which brought stylish interiors and outdoors.
The 2021 Jeep Compass facelift has been styled with revamped light bulbs with integrated LED DRLs, a redesigned7-lade grille with honeycomb inserts, a new front bumper with a modified faux skid plate, and a wider air dam with new fog lights. New alloy wheels are also available for the SUV. In addition to these improvements, the side and rear of the SUV will not be different.
The renovated dashboard with a new10.1″ touchscreen infotainment system and new AC vents and HVAC controls located underneath would allow a huge interior improvement. The new touchscreen includes a UConnect 5 infotainment system, Amazon Alexa integrated support, Apple CarPlay wireless and Android Auto support, and overhead updates. The new touchscreen comes with the UConnect 5 FCA system.
Furthermore, Jeep will use better products, featuring double-stitched leather inserts and brushed aluminum trimming in the compass facelift dashboard. A new steering wheel and a big, digital instrument cluster will be also included in the package.
Although the Compass facelift is fitted with new motors on international markets, its existing powertrains will continue in India. The engine, with a torque of 173hp and 350Nm, will be the same 2.0-liter diesel engine, as the outbound model will have a 1.4-liter turbo petrol engine that will produce 163 hp and 250Nm torque.
A 6-speed manual is available as standard for both engines. A dual-clutch 7-speed automatic petrol-powered Compass is available while a diesel engine gets a nine-speed auto converter.
Once the 2021 Jeep compass facelift is introduced in India, it will compete with those of the Hyundai Tucson and the Skoda Karoq. Like the Compass pre-face raise, a Trailhawk version is also available.
Jeep is also designing a new 7-seater SUV that shares with Compass its platform and powertrain, but which will compete with the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour.
