2022 Jeep Compass Review, Pricing, and Specs
The 2022 Jeep SUV range covers everything from compact city performers to high-end off-road demons, but every vehicle has one thing in common: an enticing combination of power under the hood and comfort in the cabin. The Compass fits squarely into this approach, offering all the convenience, economy, and tech you need for daily urban driving, but with enough off-road performance to make weekend adventuring a genuine option.
The latest 2022 Jeep Compass is now available for test drive at our Scarborough dealership, and here are the key highlights you can look forward to enjoying.
Power Under the Hood
The Compass might be a compact SUV but it packs a genuine punch in its powertrain. Every model in the lineup is built around a 2.4L four-cylinder gas engine pushing out a meaty 180 horsepower and 175lb-ft of torque, plenty enough to propel the Compass's compact frame with confidence. There's a choice of front-wheel drive paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, or all-wheel drive with an upgraded nine-speed automatic.
The AWD versions of the Compass are also available with the advanced Selec-Terrain system, which automatically optimizes traction and torque to each of the four wheels independently, with selectable drive modes providing impeccable handling over a variety of difficult surfaces.
But despite its generous output, the 2022 Compass doesn't disappoint when it comes to fuel economy. The highway rating is a frugal 7.6L / 100km, making for highly economical longer journeys, while the combined figure of 9.4L / 100km is more than respectable for an SUV of this capability.
But it's in the passenger cabin that the 2022 Compass gains most over its previous model years. The dashboard has been redesigned to give a cleaner and more thoughtfully laid out appearance, while available leather upholstery and other comforts give this SUV a genuinely upscale feel.
The infotainment technology has also been upgraded. The standard touchscreen size is now a generous 8.4", with a huge 10.1" option also available for those who need even more screen real estate. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both available in wireless format for seamless smartphone integration, while navigation and natural voice recognition complete the suite of attractive tech features.
Advanced Active Safety Features
The suite of active safety and driver assist systems also impresses with its wide range of options. Key highlights to keep you safer on the road include:
- Automated emergency braking at full speed.
- Adaptive cruise control.
- Lane departure warnings and keep assist.
- Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts.
