Hollywood Chrysler Jeep 2022 Jeep Compass

The 2022 Jeep Compass soldiers on as a somewhat entry-level offering from Jeep that’s more rugged and off-road capable than its segment competition. Crossovers like the Mazda CX-5 and Honda CR-V are its contemporaries, but none are known for their off-road prowess. Back and ready to roll with a redesign, the 2022 Jeep Compass features an all-new modern interior, a massive tech upgrade, and a redesigned front fascia as well. 

“Sophisticated and well equipped, the Compass stays true to its benchmark 4×4 capability and on-road dynamics, but with even more refinement and precision. It also boasts a host of new attributes and innovative technologies designed to keep consumers connected and make their lives easier,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President, Jeep Brand North America. 

2022 Jeep Compass: What’s New? 

The 2022 Jeep Compass enters the model year with a resculpted front fascia, including several changes to the iconic seven-slot grille design, slimmer LED headlights, high gloss black accents, and a larger lower grille that enables engine cooling. High-tier trims of the model even feature LED projector headlights, LED fog lights, and new LED tail lamps. On the interior of the model lie some of the more anticipated changes, such as a new instrument panel, a cleaner horizontal theme throughout the dashboard for a more upscale vibe, an 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen display, the latest Uconnect 5 system, Apple CarPlay, and Google Android Auto connectivity, hands-free Bluetooth, Amazon Alexa compatibility and much more. 

The Trailhawk, Limited, and Latitude LUX trims are one rung above the rest with their 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen display, as well as all-wheel-drive capabilities on their respective lists of standard features. Additionally, the revamped 2022 Jeep Compass also comes with a new multifunction steering wheel, an eight-way power driver’s seat, and HVAC vents in the second-row console. 

Safety Tech Galore

Jeep added the Pedestrian/Cyclist Automatic Emergency Braking option to its Standard Advanced Brake Assist and Forward Collision Warning systems. Limited, Trailhawk and High Altitude trims of the 2022 Compass come standard with traffic sign recognition, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop &  Go, as well as an available parallel and perpendicular Park Assist System that makes parking a breeze no matter the location.
