2022 Jeep Compass debuts a new premium design

The 2022 Jeep Compass debuts with a new premium design and all-new interior packed with advanced safety features. Jeep has delivered a vehicle packed with two 4×4 systems and all new connectivity for a great entry price point. It has the most available safety features in its class and will arrive in dealerships this fall. 

2022 Compass Sport

The 2022 Jeep Compass Sport has a new design loaded with features with a starting price of $24,995 for front-wheel-drive, and $26,495 for 4×4 models. All trims feature icon exterior Jeep craftsmanship and standards. The front view has a modern fascia, new grille and restyled slim LED headlights. 

On the interior, the Sport trim has more space providing double the storage capacity and accentuated the next-generation technology upgrades. Even the drivers view has a new aesthetic, with a redesigned instrument panel and slimmer HVAC vents. The new layout gives the driver better accessibility. The Sport model features the Uconnect 5 system with a standard 8.4-inch touchscreen. This is the largest standard entry-level touchscreen in its class. The new Uconnect offers a one-touch Home Screen, five user profiles, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Sports models now offer USB Type A and Type C ports in the front row, allowing devices to charge much faster. The second row offers passenger the standard option USB Type A charging port. 

Looking at all the new standard safety features, even in the Sport model, it’s loaded. It includes Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with active brake and pedestrian/cyclist detection, Active Lane Management with LaneSense Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, Advanced Brake Assist, Blind-sport Monitoring with Rear Cross Path detection, LED reflector headlamps, Hill-start Assist and ParkView rear backup camera with active grid lines. These are features normally available exclusively in top trims at a much higher price point, but the Compass managed to pack it all in.

The Compass Sport is available in front-wheel drive, but the 4×4 is the standard way to buy a Jeep of any kind. The Sport 4×4 model uses the Jeep Active Drive system providing up to 100% of the torque to the rear wheels, to grip any low-traction conditions. Utilizing the Jeep Selec-Terrain system, drivers can chose from three modes: Auto, Snow, Sand/Mud. This feature gives the Jeep Compass Sport the best four-wheel-drive performance and capability on and off the road in any seasonal weather condition. 

“A hallmark of the Jeep brand is actively listening to customers, and with the new 2022 Jeep Compass we stayed true to our roots by delivering unmatched Jeep 4×4 capability, a clear differentiator for any Jeep brand SUV in the market. But we didn’t stop at legendary Jeep capability. We also delivered an incredibly modern, spacious and technically advanced interior for this new Compass, packed with next-generation safety and technology for a starting price of less than $25,000,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President, Jeep Brand North America. 

The Compass Sport standard engine is the 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder with 177 horsepower, 172 lb-ft of torque paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission in the 4×4 models or six-speed automatic in the 4×2 models. Compass 4×4 models also have a class-exclusive fully disconnecting rear axle and power-transfer unit (PTU) to enhance fuel economy.
