The 2022 Jeep Compass will play an essential role in the company’s future plans. Compass already gained popularity globally, and Jeep will work on further improvements. The New 2022 model has been spied a couple of days ago. It is a European-spec Compass that is currently produced in Italy. However, spy shots will disappoint some of the fans. The changes are really minor.
However, the spy shots from China and Latin America are showing more updates. We just hope the Compass will arrive on American soil with a more significant upgrade. According to various reports, the 2022 Compass will gain more driver-assistance aids and various interior updates. Here’s what we know about the arriving model.
2022 Compass Spy Shots
As for the exterior design, the new 2022 Jeep Compass will introduce minor changes. The spy shots are showing a new set of LED headlights and taillights. Similar features can be found on the new Cherokee and Renegade models. Besides that, Compass won’t change.
It is the same styling, and even the dimensions are intact. A seven-slot grille is the same, and Compass wears the same trapezoidal fender flares. The rear end is relatively fresh, so new taillights surprise us. We can’t say if the Limited or Trailhawk versions will get the same type of updates.
On the inside, Jeep should deliver significant updates. The 2022 Jeep Compass will get a technology boost and, most likely, interior redesign. However, the highlight of the new Compass will be the FCA’s next-gen Uconnect infotainment system. On the other hand, an 8.4-inch touchscreen should remain standard.
Some rumors are suggesting a new series of displays thanks to the FCA cooperation with Panasonic. Jeep will add more driver-assistance aids. The plan is to deliver higher safety ratings. New safety systems will be added across the complete trim level lineup. Compass is dimensionally the same, so the interior room is a carryover.
Engine Specs, Hybrid Version
The forthcoming 2022 Jeep Compass will introduce a new 1.3-liter engine. This unit powers the Renegade model, and it replaced the current 2.4-liter gasoline engine. New 1.3-liter is a turbocharged engine with a stop/start system. It can produce up to 180 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque. In terms of horses, Compass won’t deliver more power, but new drivetrain generates an additional 35 lb-ft of torque. We are still waiting for Jeep to release its electrified powertrain options.
That includes both American and European versions. According to various reports, Compass will arrive with a plug-in hybrid variant and a standard 4×4 system. The hybrid version will combine a new 1.3-liter engine with electric motors and a battery pack. Total output will produce up to 240 horsepower, and Compass PHEV will deliver around 31 miles of all-electric driving range.
2022 Jeep Compass Price and Release Date
The price of the brand-new 2022 Jeep Compass will start at some point in 2021. The price will remain, but the PHEV variant will cost more, around $37,000. The base trim level starts at $32,000. Compass will continue to compete with Ford Escape and Honda CR-V.
