Jeep has updated the Compass lineup for 2022 for North America, with subtle exterior revisions, a new interior, and standard safety tech. The 2022 Compass is expected to reach U.S. dealers this fall; in the meantime, trim-wise MSRP is listed below —
In addition to these standard trims, a High Altitude Package (shown in the photos here) is available on the Limited trim for an extra $2,595.
As mentioned, the styling updates are subtle and in line with the 2021 Compass facelift that was revealed for the Indian market earlier this year. There’s a new front bumper design with new fog lamp housing and a larger lower grille. The upper seven-slot grille has also been tweaked but is barely noticeable compared to the outgoing model. There are new LED headlights too. Depending on the trim, the Compass gets up to 19-inch rims. Earl and Bright White are the two new exterior paint options. Jeep also said that it has tweaked the suspension for smoother ride and handling, and so is the steering wheel for improved on-road responsiveness.
The aforementioned High Altitude Package adds Neutral Grey and gloss black exterior detailing, black roof, body-colored front and rear lower fascias and painted side flares, a full suite of LED lighting (automatic projector LED headlamps, fog lamps, taillamps) and 19-inch Satin Granite Crystal aluminum rims.
The Trailhawk continues to be the ultimate off-roader in the lineup with a 1-inch factory lift for up to 8.6-inches of ground clearance, water fording up to 19-inches, high-strength steel skid plates, signature red front and rear tow hooks, and 17-inch aluminum rims wrapped with rugged all-season tires. The Trailhawk also comes with an exclusive Selec-Terrain Rock mode (in addition to Auto, Snow, Sand/Mud modes).
The new dashboard design is also in line with the 2021 Compass facelift for India. A chrome-plated accent that runs the entire length of the dashboard not only adds a premium touch but also seamlessly integrates new slim HVAC vents. Other features include an optional 10.25-inch digital driver display (standard with the High Altitude Package), a 10.1-inch central touchscreen (8.4-inch standard), wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto connectivity, and USB ports.
As for the ADAS, full-speed Forward Collision Warning with pedestrian/cyclist detection and emergency braking; Active Lane Management, and Blind-spot Monitoring are now standard across the trims. Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go is standard on Trailhawk and Limited trims. At a later date, the 2022 Compass will offer Highway Assist semi-autonomous driving system, available on Limited, Trailhawk and High Altitude trims.
The 2022 Compass will continue with a 2.4-litre Tigershark 4-cylinder petrol engine with 132 kW (180 metric hp) and 233 Nm (172 lb-ft) of torque. The engine can be paired with either a 9-speed automatic or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The Trailhawk boasts an Active Drive Low 4×4 System with a 20:1 crawl ratio.
