The report further claims that the Jeep Compass facelift will receive the new 1.3-litre FireFly turbo engine. This engine currently powers the Jeep Renegade facelift. The new 1.3L FireFly turbo engine will come as a replacement for the ageing 1.4-litre MultiAir2 Turbo engine. The new 1.3-litre FireFly is a 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, which is currently developed at the FCA powertrain plant in Bielsko-Biala (Poland). This engine offers two states of tunes – 150PS/270Nm and 180PS/270Nm. The engine in lower state of tune will be paired to a 6-speed dual-dry clutch transmission, while the powerful version will be coupled to a 9-speed automatic gearbox.
FCA has recently unveiled the Jeep Compass plug-in-hybrid version with 1.3-litre FireFly Turbo engine at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. This engine with electric motor offers a combined power output of 240PS. The Jeep Compass facelift will first go on sale in the Brazilian market in early 2020, while India launch could take place in the second half of 2020 or early 2021.
