Jeep entered the compact crossover class in the late 2000s with a pair of then-new models. One of them was called the Patriot, and the other was the Compass. Only the Compass has survived, having entered its second generation in 2018.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
For 2022, the second-gen Jeep Compass gets a mid-run refresh with new exterior styling, a retuned suspension, and a thoroughly update interior with new standard and available tech features, and some new upscale touches.
2022 Jeep Compass trim levels include Sport, North, Trailhawk, and Limited. A 2.4L four-cylinder engine is standard across the range, along with a nine-speed transmission. All-wheel drive is standard in all but Sport trim, where it is optional.
Sport trim starts with 16-inch steel wheels, auto on/off LED headlights, heated side mirrors, heated front seats, six-speaker audio, A/C, 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment, and rain-sensing wipers.
