Jeep Compass 4x4 comes standard with 200 hp 2.0-liter turbocharged engine

(November 23, 2022) AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Building on the impressive redesign from the inside out for the 2022 model year, the 2023 Jeep Compass is getting a boost of performance with the introduction of a fun-to-drive, turbocharged powertrain. The 2023 Compass is newly equipped with a standard 200-horsepower 2.0-liter engine that delivers exceptional responsiveness and enhanced drivability. The full lineup of Jeep Compass 4x4 models deliver even more legendary off-road capability plus an exciting amount of advanced safety and security features.
“We’ve received tremendous customer feedback on the Jeep Compass’ new interior and all the high-tech features, and now we have the opportunity to showcase the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine standard on all Compass models for the 2023 model year,” said Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “I can’t wait for customers to take it for a spin, because not only is it more powerful, it’s also really fun to drive.”
Available in five different 4x4 trim configurations: Sport, Latitude, Latitude LUX, Limited and the rugged Trail Rated Trailhawk, the 2023 Jeep Compass is available now for order and scheduled to start arriving in North American Jeep showrooms in first quarter 2023.

The new 2023 Jeep Compass delivers incredible performance, whether traversing off-road trails or navigating busy city streets. Legendary off-road capability begins courtesy of two advanced, intelligent 4x4 systems.

The 2023 Jeep Compass offers premium on-road manners courtesy of a new standard engine across the lineup. One of the most technologically advanced engines in the automotive industry, the 2.0-liter direct injection turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine is rated at 200 horsepower and 221 lb.-ft. of torque and is mated to a new highly efficient eight-speed automatic transmission.
Fitted with engine stop-start (ESS) technology, this new powertrain delivers low emissions, quick 0-60 miles per hour (mph) launch performance and enhanced drivability. The 2.0-liter I-4 features a twin-scroll, low inertia turbocharger with an electric actuated waste gate for exceptional responsiveness and performance, even while traversing over difficult terrain. The turbo is mounted directly to the cylinder head to reduce emissions and improve durability. A dedicated cooling circuit lowers the temperature of the intake air, throttle body and turbocharger.
Hydraulic-filled mounts absorb vibrations from the engine, preventing them from being transmitted to the cockpit, for a smooth and premium feel for the driver and passengers. The driver will also notice improved handling via a larger rear stabilizer bar and unique tuning of the Electronic Power Steering system.
The engine is part of the Stellantis Global Medium Engine family and features double overhead camshafts (DOHC), dual independent camshaft timing, and a cooled exhaust gas recirculation (C-EGR) system.
Direct fuel injection, coupled with turbocharging, enables more efficient combustion, reduced emissions and increased performance. The fuel pump supplies the engine’s 2,900-psi high-pressure common-rail injection system. These high pressures produce better fuel atomization and allow for more precise fuel delivery than port fuel-injected systems.
The cast-aluminum alloy cylinder head features a central injector and high tumble intake ports. This combination provides high charge motion and balanced air flow to improve fuel efficiency and performance. Integrated into the cylinder head is a water-cooled exhaust manifold to reduce emissions while providing increased engine reliability.
The engine features a low-pressure, sand cast-aluminum block with cast-in iron liner with an 84mm bore and 90mm stroke for a total displacement of 1,995cc. Cast-aluminum pistons, with a 10:1 compression ratio, have four valve pockets to accommodate the dual variable-valve timing [VVT] system. Each cylinder bore is fitted with gallery-mounted piston oil cooling jets to limit piston temperatures, reduce spark knock and increase piston durability. Select-fit main and rod bearings enable reduced clearances to help lower system oil demand and oil pumping effort. In addition, floating piston pins utilize diamond-like coating (DLC) for reduced friction.
