2021 Jeep Compass Trailhawk Preview: Specs and Features

The next year could be quite interesting for this compact crossover, as many reports suggest a possible facelift. What does this mean for the off-road version of this model, it’s hard to say at the moment, but we are pretty sure that it won’t change any of its essentials. The 2021 Jeep Compass Trailhawk will continue to be the most capable version in the model’s lineup, equipped with all kinds of off-road goodies, but also full of convenience features.

Of course, we have no doubt it will adopt all the features from the upcoming facelift, which in practice means a new styling, but also novelties in terms of standard equipment, where we count on a couple of additions. Furthermore, a new powertrain option is on the way, in the form of a new plug-in hybrid system. All these things look very exciting and we have no doubt that the new version will be even better than the current one.

2021 Jeep Compass Trailhawk Features

This particular version is characterized by many exclusive features and most of them are about off-road upgrades. Of course, we are talking about things like Jeep Active Drive Low four-wheel-drive system with low-gearing, all-season on/off-road tires with 17-inch wheels, an off-road suspension system, two tow hooks, and additional skid plates.

Those are the things that make this model more capable than the rest in the lineup but the 2021 Jeep Compass Trailhawk 4×4 SUV won’t lack any convenience either. The current model is already pretty impressive in this aspect, as it comes with pretty much the same list of standard features as the Latitude trim. This means you may count on goodies like roof rails, rear air vents, upgraded cloth and simulated leather seat upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, keyless ignition and entry, satellite radio. In addition, it comes with the bigger, 8.4-inch touchscreen and the latest reports suggest we could see the next generation of the excellent Uconnect infotainment system in the next-year model.


When it comes to the exterior design, this trim level doesn’t come with too many exclusive details. Of course, there are several off-road upgrades that also have a visual impact on the crossover, but most of the things are rather the same. Therefore, we are about to see all the novelties that are about to come. Although we are still waiting for the official confirmation, souces like moparinsiders.com suggest a facelift, which would bring novelties on both ends of the vehicle. This would mean new fascias, which would adopt some of the styling solutions from the upcoming next-generation Grand Cherokee. Of course, we also count on typical updates, such as new color options, wheels, etc.


The inside of the 2021 Jeep Compass Trailhawk new version won’t change too much. The overall cabin layout will remain the same, as well as the dashboard design. This means you may count on a cabin that looks quite simple but feature more than decent overall quality. Materials in this crossover are fine, despite that rivals look far more opulent.

When it comes to the interior space, this is a typical compact crossover. With less than 104 inches in wheelbase, you can’t expect any spectacular amount of space, though both rows are pretty decent. The first row is good for nearly 42 inches of legroom, while the second row is good for about 38.3. Those are quite decent numbers for the class and we can say that both rows are adult-friendly.

The amount of cargo space isn’t the biggest in the class, but most drivers will find it decent enough. You may count on 27 cubic feet behind the second row and 60 cubic feet of the overall cargo space.

2021 Jeep Compass Trailhawk Engines

The current model comes with just one engine in the offer. It is a familiar 2.4-liter four-cylinder unit, which features a max output of 180 horsepower. It definitely isn’t the most spectacular engine you can find, but the ride quality is quite okay. When it comes to fuel economy, you may count on about 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

For the next year, the 2021 Jeep Compass Trailhawk AWD is about to come with a PHEV setup in the offer. Of course, we are talking about the recently presented system, which is based on a 1.3-liter turbo-four engine. The exact numbers are still unavailable, but we expect that this version will be able to provide more than 30 miles on a single charge.
