• Jeep giving its 2023 Compass SUV a new engine.
• The new unit, a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder, replaces the 2.4L Tigershark 4-cylinder engine that previously powered the model.
• The 2023 Compass also gets a new 8-speed automatic transmission, replacing the 9-speed unit.
Back in April, Jeep’s North American boss Jim Morrison announced that the Compass would inherit a new engine before the end of the year. It’s promise kept, as Jeep confirmed this week that the naturally aspirated 2.4L Tigershark 4-cylinder (good 177 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque) is out. In its place, we'll now find a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder that will offer 200 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque.
