New-generation Jeep Compass could debut later this year

The Compass will be the first of many models expected to get a generation change.

According to media reports, American automaker Jeep is in the process of updating its entire model lineup. The carmaker is expected to introduce new-generation iterations of many of its models, starting with the Jeep Compass SUV.

As per reports, Jeep is working on a brand new Compass SUV for the European market. The upcoming new-gen Compass will be built from the ground up, making use of the STLA-M platform of Stellantis. This indicates Jeep could offer a range of powertrain options on the Compass, including mild-hybrid, plug-in hybrid and even an all-electric version.

The new Compass will be a strict five-seater SUV and will feature a more boxier and upright stance compared to the current version. Jeep could offer the Compass in two options - standard and Trail-Rated. The latter will differentiate itself with a taller ride height, off-road tyres, better approach & departure angles, and use rugged materials all around.

Moving inside, reports suggest that the new-gen Compass will get a completely revamped look, with plenty of tech borrowed from elsewhere in the Stellantis Group. This includes Peugeot's windscreen i-cockpit layout and Vauxhall Grandland's 16-inch widescreen setup; among others. Being a Jeep, the SUV will also feature the traditional 'Easter Eggs' spread across the SUV.
