The company recently presented a new generation of this popular SUV, which is coming as the 2017 year model, so 2018 Jeep Compass should come without bigger changes. The new model comes with the same familiar nameplate, despite the fact that many believed that company is about to introduce completely new nameplate that will be used for the new model that should replace both Compass and Patriot. However, the company decided to keep the name, although new model really comes as the replacement for these two models. A new generation of this crossover comes with plenty of improvements and it features completely new styling. Since this is a completely new model, we doubt that some bigger changes will come for the second year of production. So, 2018 Compass should come without bigger modifications.
