The biggest update for the 2023 Jeep Compass is that the 9-speed automatic transmission now becomes available starting from the newly launched Longitude variant.

On a side note, the base-spec Compass in the Sport variant will come only with a manual transmission.
The third variant in the lineup is the new Longitude+ variant, which will come with all the same features and options as the Longitude variant. The difference, however, will be that this new variant will get additional features such as a wireless charger and a panoramic sunroof as well. Fourth on the list is the Limited variant, which will now get a new BlackShark Edition. This new edition gets a blacked-out grille, new blacked-out Meridian-style alloy wheels, and a full black leather interior. The interior also gets some subtle-looking “Ignite Red” accents as well.
Last and the most expensive variant on the list of the Jeep Compass is the Model S variant. This variant, which previously came only with the automatic transmission in the 4X4 variant, will now get the same 9-speed automatic transmission in a 4X2 drivetrain as well. Apart from this new rejig of the variants, the 2023 Compass Limited and Model S variants get a brand new front grille and Jeep Meridian-type alloy wheels. As for the powertrain side of things, the Compass will still come powered by the same 2.0-liter diesel engine that makes around 170 bhp of maximum power and 350 Nm of torque.
