    Modern SUVs have come a long way from the awkwardly large square beasts they once were. Anybody who remembers the old school Broncos and Wagoneers can tell you that back in the day, SUVs were built as one size fits all, and there were no other options. But things have changed dramatically, and now you can pick and choose the size SUV you desire, and it’s not like you have limited choices. SUVs now come in every size from subcompact to full-size and everything in between. The 2022 Jeep Compass is a compact SUV capable of seating five. It sits right between its smaller brother, the Renegade, and bigger brother, Cherokee. So it is really the ideal size for a large segment of the population, not too big and not too small.

    The Compass gets some significant updates for the 2022 model, including an interior overhaul. The model also enjoys six trim levels, which ensures that there is a Jeep Compass that will fit your every need. The new model also offers over 75 available safety and security features leaving you to feel safe and secure behind the wheel of your Compass.

    One Singular Point of Power

    There is no need to research and decide which engine is suitable for your Compass as there is only one option; the 2.4-liter four-cylinder that cranks out 177 horsepower. The 2.4-liter engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, but the all-wheel-drive models are equipped with a nine-speed automatic transmission. For those who decide to get the all-wheel-drive model, they get to enjoy the use of several drive modes. Drivers can choose between modes that vary the amount of traction depending on the road surface. In addition, the Trailhawk trim enjoys a Crawler and Rock mode for added traction in off-road applications.

    An Excellent Commuter Vehicle and More

    Some might argue that Jeep should include a V6 option, but that isn’t going to happen for the time being. You need to consider that the majority of drivers who choose the Compass will be using it mainly for driving on paved roads, and as such, the four-cylinder is quite adequate. And when it comes time to fill the tank, many Compass owners will appreciate the fuel efficiency of the smaller engine choice. That said, the Compass isn’t useless in off-road conditions, quite the opposite actually. Without a doubt, those seeking hardcore off-road adventures will probably opt for the Wrangler or Cherokee, but the Compass does fare well in off-road applications.

    If you do desire a Compass with a little more off-road capabilities, the Trailhawk trim is available in four-wheel drive and boasts a lot of off-road chops. The features that make the Trailhawk an off-road enthusiast’s dream are numerous, but they include skid plates, hill descent control, and all-terrain tires. The bottom line is that the Compass does a fine job balancing between off-road driving and city driving.

    For those wishing for an interior that is comfortable, spacious, and functional, the Compass is sure to put a smile on your face. Now let’s touch upon the much-talked-about redesigned interior. The dashboard is entirely new, and it looks fantastic. Better still, Compass owners are sure to appreciate the infotainment system with the Uconnect system that offers a faster and smoother interface.

    Interior Tech

    The Latitude and Sport trims enjoy an 8.4-inch touchscreen, and the higher trims have a 10.1-inch touchscreen, both with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. New to the infotainment system is the ability to connect to your Amazon Alexa device. This is a nice feature for those who are always asking Alexa for information or for listening to music. There is also a new digital display in two different sizes. The smaller display, which runs 3.5-inches, is standard in the Sport and Latitude trim levels, while the larger, 7.5-inch unit is standard in the high-level trims and an option for the Latitude.

    The digital display is where you can get all of the readouts of the long list of safety features. While there are still brands that offer safety features as options, this is not the case with the Compass. Safety features such as Blind Spot Monitoring, LaneSense Lane Departure Warning, and Forward Collision Warning are all standard in the Compass. But the standard safety features don’t end there; the Compass also enjoys Active Braking, Pedestrian Detection, and Lane Keep Assist. Take a look at some of the competition, and many of these safety features either cost additional money or are not even offered.

    Exterior Upgrades

    On the exterior, the iconic seven-slot grille is still intact, but the fascia has been redesigned. It doesn’t seem like they did much with the exterior updates, and yet, somehow, the 2022 Compass looks altogether fresher if not slightly more aggressive like its Cherokee brother. The Trailhawk is the model that received the most changes in exterior styling. The hood features a black and red anti-glare decal along with a unique grille design that gives the Trailhawk an aggressive look.

  • Trims

    There are many of you out there who have already decided that you want your next ride to be the all-new Jeep Compass, but if only it were as simple as picking out the right color choice. With several trim levels and options, you will be having to make quite a few decisions when that time comes when you start shopping for a model. So here are a few trim details that are sure to whet your appetite and enlighten you.


    The Sport is the base trim but don’t let that fool you; there is still plenty of features to enjoy on this model. For example, the 8.4-inch center stack touchscreen is the largest screen among the competition. Even the base model is well-stocked with the safety features that keep you and your family safe and secure. The Sport also enjoys 16-inch alloy wheels, a six-speaker audio system, and cloth seats.


    Next on the list is the Latitude trim, which will get you everything in the lower trim plus a bunch of added goodies. For those cold winter days, Latitude owners will stay toasty warm in their heated front seats, and for an added driving experience, there is ambient interior lighting. Additional tech options include a foot-activated power liftgate, 17-inch wheels, and smarter windshield wipers and headlights.

    Latitude Lux

    New to the trim list is the Latitude Lux, which offers more luxury features and options than the lower trim levels, but not as many as the high trim levels. This is the right pick for you if you desire and enjoy a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, the larger touchscreen option, and 18-inch aluminum wheels.


    The Trailhawk always seems to get all of the attention, and for very good reasons. The Trailhawk is the model you want if you are serious about your outdoor adventures. We already gave you a partial list of the off-road attractions that come with this trim in the "Performance" section, but there are also a few more, including tow hooks and a 1-inch lift kit. A few more of the goodies you get with the Trailhawk include the larger gauge cluster, heated seats, and traffic sign recognition, which is an odd feature for the Trailhawk, considering there are usually no traffic signs on those mountain trails.


    The Limited is loaded with all sorts of premium materials and convenience features. It’s the perfect choice for those who enjoy all of the luxuries in life and in their ride. Inside the Compass Limited, you will find illuminated map pockets, contrast stitching, and door trim panels that are soft to the touch. On the outside of the Compass Limited, you and the people who are turning their heads to check out your ride enjoy illuminated door handles and 18-inch wheels.
