Jeep Compass changes look and debuts Rampage turbo engine in the 2025 lineup

Jeep has led the medium SUV segment handily since 2016. This dominance is a reflection of the success of the Compass, which has built a solid image that the brand is not willing to lose.

This helps explain why the 2025 line brought much more important changes than a slight visual slap. The list of new features includes new versions, extended warranty, more standard items, improvements in driving dynamics and mainly the offer of a more powerful turbo engine.

Turbo engine came from Rampage

The 2.0 engine in the Hurricane 4 line is not exactly new because it already powered the Jeep Wrangler and Ram Rampage. It was, therefore, the most suitable choice on the Stellantis “shelf” – and I can say that it fit like a glove on the Compass.

To handle so much power and torque, Jeep engineering recalibrated the braking system and adopted a new suspension adjustment, with new springs and shock absorbers, which also resulted in less body roll.

Consumption averages are as expected for such a powerful engine with a turbocharger. In the Compass, the numbers are 8.3 km/l in the city and 10 km/l on the highway.

ADAS is reinforced by new items

Jeep has improved the driving assistance package, known by the acronym ADAS, and divided it into two levels.

In the most complete of them, the vehicle has adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert, autonomous emergency braking, fatigue sensor, blind spot monitoring, lane keeping assistant with exit warning, reading traffic signs, automatic high beams, semi-autonomous parking system (Park Assist) and rear cross traffic alert. They are joined by the lane centering assistant and the hands-off-steering-wheel detection system.

In addition to all these systems, the SUV leaves the factory with 6 or 7 airbags (depending on the version), stability and traction controls, rear parking sensors and hill start assistant.

Blackhawk sports version is new to the line

The 2025 Compass line is made up of seven versions: Sport Flex, Longitude Flex, Limited Flex, S Series Flex, Limited Diesel, Overland Hurricane and Blackhawk Hurricane. The last two are the biggest news.

The arrival of the Compass Blackhawk retires the Trailhawk version, but the 4xe hybrid (imported from Italy at a very high price) had its continuity ensured by Stellantis, although it was not clear whether the visual changes would be replicated.

Check out the standard and optional items for each version below:

Other versions have 1.3 turbo and 2.0 diesel engines

With the end of the Compass Trailhawk, the well-known 2.0 turbodiesel engine with 170 hp and 35.4 kgfm is only available in the Limited version – the only one also offered with the flex engine.

Other versions (Sport, Longitude and Series S) are sold exclusively with the 1.3 T270 turboflex engine, which delivers up to 185 hp and 27.5 kgfm.

Four-wheel drive with reduced function is available from the Limited Diesel version onwards. There are three modes: Auto (detects the need to activate traction), Snow (ideal for low-grip surfaces, such as grass) and Sand/Mud (intended for terrain with sand and/or mud).

After-sales is reinforced with an eye on the competition

Jeep also made important changes to its after-sales policy. The biggest news is the offer of a five-year factory warranty or 100,000 kilometers driven, whichever comes first.

The good news is that this five-year period also applies to all Compass units from model/year 2022 onwards that still have their warranty in force. Therefore, the owner of a vehicle manufactured three years ago and which, therefore, would have the warranty expiring this year, will be able to count on the benefit until 2026.

Furthermore, anyone purchasing a 0km Compass can opt for factory-approved armor, which does not invalidate the five-year warranty. The service carried out by Hi-Tech has protection level III-A and costs approximately R$85,000. If preferred, the owner may dilute the value of the shielding in the financing installment.
