The 2021 Jeep Compass is going through a mid-cycle refresh. The company is preparing a few changes to make it more attractive. Well, we have to wait to see what does the larger sibling Grand Cherokee is about to introduce. The new Compass will follow the same way of styling. But, at this point, we know that a new infotainment system will be introduced with the facelift.
The second generation of the compact crossover was introduced in 2017. A four-year run is pretty long in the segment. The 2021 Jeep Compass will get a necessary update outside and inside. Still, the major reason for buying it will be a long list of options and features. One model steps up from all others – Trailhawk. The new infotainment system will definitely make it more convenient and fun to drive off the road.
Infotainment: Larger Screen, Enhanced Safety, More Options
The base version of the Uconnect system will be more convenient than before. These features could be dangerous if the layout is not simple and easy to use. The FCA will work on the voice commands, visibility, and the button layout to make the Uconnect as easier to control as possible.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard. Upper trim levels will come with a larger 10-inch infotainment screen. Also, top models will feature the navigation and the premium audio.
2021 Jeep Compass Hybrid
Engineers will have to develop a hybrid powerplant if the company wants to stay competitive. Even without this option, the Compass sells well. On the other hand, now we have more than ever hybrid units in the compact crossover segment. Although efficient, the 2021 Jeep Compass can’t cope with 40+ mpg fuel economy coming from Toyota Rav4 and Ford Escape. The price of the new crossover will be updated. The base trim remains Sport and it might keep a starting MSRP of $24,000.
