So the rumors were shun when this detail was released. And it quickly shows how serious they are in presenting their best Compass to the public. The rumors which initially emerged showed us a lack luster performance on the designer’s part. This brought to many people’s attention an idea that his model is not going to meet the expectations. But so far, this is all not true. The car is on schedule and will arrive by the destined release date.

Generally speaking, the look of the 2019 Jeep Compass is a lot more mature now. They have taken a lot of details form the existing fleet of Jeep cars and molded them all into one. The result is a very handsome looking car with all the necessary elements and details of a family vehicle.
The front end has a steeply racked lower fascia which is important for off-road duties. It comes with the addition of HID projector beam headlights and LED daytime running lights. At the same time, lower fog lights help with providing additional visibility at certain times. They also wrapped wheels in some durable and semi-aggressive tires which will help with driving in various different terrains.
All trims of the 2019 Jeep Compass will have a blacked-out roof with black for the A-, B-, and C-pillars. On the other hand, the D-pillar have the color that matches the body of the car. The rear end of the car includes attractive rump, with a scalloped tailgate and clear-lens taillights. There are some chrome accent strips featured here as well and satin-chrome accent panels.

New 2019 Jeep Compass Size
As this is the new generation 2019 Jeep Compass vehicle, everybody is expecting to see changes for the body. Even though they seem apparent and it is only logical that they do decide to change the size of the model, it is still not clear by how much they are planning to change it. The automaker has refrained from something on this and we have predicted that the changes could come, but so far it is even hard to guess based on the pictures.
This only means that if the changes have been made, they are very slight. The current model is 173.0 inches long and with a wheelbase of 103.8 inches. The height is 64.6 inches and the width is 73.8 inches. As far the inside goes the passenger volume is 101 cu ft while there is enough room in the cargo bay to fit anything you need as it gives us a space of 27 cu ft.
2019 Jeep Compass New Color Introduced
The 2019 Jeep Compass is getting a second generation model. As such you can probably predict this car getting new aesthetic. We were hoping to see changes in the design but also in color. The current set of colors is pretty standard and is getting dated.
Even the last update has not brought any new variations which we could call unique. So we are hopeful to get something new here. But there are no news that would excite us and confirm this rumor. There is surely going to be an update when it comes to color variants but for now they are keeping it to themselves. We hope to learn more once the release date gets nearer and they are probably keeping the news for then.
Interior Design of the 2019 Jeep Compass
Moving inside the 2019 Jeep Compass, we noticed a few similarities with the current Jeep models. This is particularly noticeable with the Cherokee interior. There are a few elements translated from this version and it includes also the dash that has a twin-barrel gauge cluster which also includes TFT center display of 3.5- or 7.0-inches. In the center mid area there is the 8.4-inch Uconnect system with dual vents surrounding it. A Uconnect 5.0 comes standard but you can expand to 7.0 inches optionally.
They upgraded interior design with a different look and better materials. The two-tone leather seats come with red contrast stitching. Black leather is standard and there are various features for the front which help with the driver easily using the car. The rear area includes 60/40 style seats. There is quite enough space for the passengers to fit in the back and enjoy the ride. We can say that the entire interior has been designed smarty and functionally. The overall layout is great and there is a lot that you can enjoy with this vehicle.
2019 Jeep Compass Engine Choices
The engine choices for the 2019 Jeep Compass are familiar but are not being carried over. So they will still use 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder turbo engine. But it will not be the completely same engine that was used before. This time they will update it very nicely and upgrade it with 10 hp of more power.
It all results to an upgrade of 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. This has been done with FCA’s MultiAir2 valve train technology which greatly helped to improve the specs of the car. There are also thee transmission choices available with the six-speed manual transmission being standard. You can link it with FWD or 4WD drivetrain systems. Also provided are the six-speed Aisin automatic and FCA’s nine-speed automatic transmission. The former one comes with a FWD while the later includes a 4WD system.
2019 Jeep Compass Top Speed and Acceleration Ability
The updated engine of the 2019 Jeep Compass will also provide slightly different specs. Although we already have a familiar engine on our hands with great potential, they have managed to improve it slightly and get better production out of it. The vehicle is capable of reaching 0-60 mph in time of 9.3 seconds for 4WD models while the FWD ones do it in 9.8 seconds. The top speed for all versions is still limited to 110 mph.
Fuel Economy Ratings
With the newest setup of the 2019 Jeep Compass, we are getting some improvements in comparison to the older one. It is not much, but any advancement in creating a more efficient car is welcomed. This time the rates go to 22 mpg city, 30 mpg highway, and 25 mpg combined. This EPA rating was released for the 4WD version with a nine-speed automatic and it looks pretty decent. Other official ratings have yet to come out and we expect that the company releases them soon.
