2022 Jeep Compass engine and drivetrain options
The 2022 Jeep Compass uses a 2.4L I-4 engine that supplies drivers with 177 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. Standard equipment for the Jeep Compass Sport and Latitude trims is a 6-speed automatic transmission that powers the front wheels. However, Jeep’s praised Active Drive 4×4 system with a 9-speed automatic transmission is available to these trims while standard on the Latitude, Latitude LUX, and Limited trims. This full-time 4×4 system uses a disconnecting rear axle to maximize fuel efficiency on ideal road conditions by driving just the front wheels and automatically engaging the rear wheels, driving all four when inclement road conditions are encountered. The Compass Trailhawk exclusively comes with Active Drive Low 4×4, which operates similarly but uses a two-speed transfer case with high and low mode to better handle a wider range of on and off-road conditions. In addition, both systems come standard with Jeep’s traction management system, Selec-Terrain. With Active Drive, it employs Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud, and Auto modes, while the Trailhawk adds Rock mode to optimize the systems for low-speed crawling control.
What are some standard and available features for the 2022 Compass?
The 2022 Jeep Compass has loads of new features and equipment to make it stand out from the previous years. For instance, looking at the 2022 Compass head-on, you’ll notice a much more aggressive appearance provided by slim headlight housings with newly standard LED headlights and a wider grille. There is also a sense of elegance on the exterior, with sharp edges and smooth curves down the sides. Standard exterior features include a larger bottom grille for more engine airflow, 16-inch alloy wheels, and heated/power-adjustable side mirrors. A single-pane or panoramic sunroof, 18-inch alloy wheels, Gloss Black accents, and LED fog lights are added to the exterior on higher trim levels. Once you get inside the 2022 Compass, you’ll enjoy premium cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a reconfigured center stack. The reconfiguration of the center stack makes it more user-friendly and intuitive. An 8.4-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen is now standard for the Compass, giving it the largest standard touchscreen in its class. Higher trim levels feature a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, five driver memory profiles, leather upholstery, heated seats/steering wheel, a 10.1-inch touchscreen, navigation with voice-activation and live traffic updates and more.
Is the 2022 Jeep Compass safe?
Under the hood, inside, and out, there is a lot to love about the 2022 Jeep Compass. But even with all of the capability, comfort, and convenience features, it also excels in safety and security. In fact, it is equipped with more than 75 standard and available driver assistance technologies. The entire Compass lineup comes standard with active lane management, automatic emergency braking, blindspot monitoring, full-speed forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and rear cross-traffic detection. Building on the standard driver assists, higher trim levels add adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree surround-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, traffic sign recognition, and more. In addition, the Compass will be available with Jeep’s Highway Assist hands-on-wheel eyes-on-road autonomous driving technology later in the 2022 model year.
