New 2022 Jeep Compass Interior, Release Date, Colors – Although the new Compass prices have not been officially announced, we are hopeful that they will remain relatively low considering this is a mid-cycle refresh. The Jeep Compass will be kept in the same mechanical condition and will receive a cosmetic makeover for 2022. The 2022 Compass will be able to compete with the Toyota RAV4, Hyundai Tucson, and Mazda CX-30 when launched in fall 2021.
New 2022 Jeep Compass Redesigned
The new 2022 Compass has a more aggressive front look than its predecessors. It is also more calm at the back thanks to minor tweaks in the taillight design. It has a more aggressive look thanks to the new LED headlights, daytime running lights and a redesigned bumper. This model still features the iconic grille, which is great. Two new colours are now available for the 80th-anniversary edition: Urban Green and Mimetic Green. It also comes in 11 colour options, which can make it difficult for buyers to choose.
The 2022 Jeep Compass’s dimensions won’t change with the new exterior styling. The new Compass will have a length of 173 inches, a width of 73.8 inches, a height of 64.6 inches, and a wheelbase of 103.8 inches. The Mazda CX-30 is a rival with a comparable length but has a shorter wheelbase than the Compass. The longest and tallest Toyota RAV4 is 6 inches longer than the Compass and nearly 2-inches higher than the Compass. Its exterior features include:
- Sleeker LED Headlamps
- The signature seven-slat front grille features a new mesh
- Redesigned front bumper
- Entry without key
The New 2022 Jeep Compass Interior model is a significant step up. It is distinguished in its class by new materials, a large touchscreen and a redesigned instrument cluster. It is a driver-focused vehicle thanks to its leather upholstery.
The New 2022 Jeep Compass Interior space is adequate and the Jeep Compass will provide the most legroom in both rows of the vehicle compared to any other rivals. The cargo volume of 27.2 cubic feet is slightly less than other competitors in this segment. The Toyota RAV4 has the largest cargo volume at 37.6 cubic yards, followed by the Hyundai Tucson which can hold 31 cubic feet.
The updated Compass features a full-HD digital instrument cluster with DAB radio and Uconnect 5, as well as a touchscreen that can be resized from 8.4 inches to 10.1 inches, depending on which trim level is selected. Android Auto offers voice recognition, 3D TomTom navigation and UConnect services in addition to Apple CarPlay. The 2022 Jeep Compass’ infotainment system features the following:
- UConnect 5
- Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
- Alpine Premium Audio System
- SiriusXM Satellite Radio
New 2022 Jeep Compass Features
2022 Jeep Compass will retain all six trims, with minor changes to the features and few new features in the top trims. The six trims available are Sport, Altitude Limited, Sport, Latitude and Altitude. Base trims would cost $26,000. It’s the same under the hood. You will continue to receive a 2.4-litre engine with the option of either 4×2 and 4×4 configurations.
The base Sport trim will be again stripped down and lacks many comfort features. The features that are added to the SUV make it more capable as you move up the trim ladder. For higher trims, the 2022 Compass will add a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen as well as a larger 10.1-inch touchscreen. Both run on UConnect 5.
The Jeep Compass can be used for highway and city rides as well as occasional off-road trips. We recommend the Altitude trim in a 4×4 guise. It has a nice list of features and based on the 2021 Compass Altitude Trim’s price, the 2022 Altitude Trim would cost around $30,000.
New 2022 Jeep Compass Engine
Jeep’s legacy of performance and off-road capability will be cherished for generations. The 2022 Jeep Compass will follow the same pattern. The 2021 Jeep Compass will be powered by a 2.4-litre inline-4 engine, which produces 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The new engine option is a 1.3L turbocharged gasoline engine, which gives it the highest performance figures. The 2022 Compass will likely have the same engine options. There are rumours of a Compass 4xe Plug-in Hybrid model, but we do not have any official confirmation.
The Compass can be paired either with a six-speed automatic or a 9-speed auto depending on whether it’s a 4×2 or 4×4 model. We have heard a lot about the slow response of the nine-speed auto transmission on the Jeep Compass. The Compass will be paired with either a six-speed or a nine-speed depending on whether it is based on if it is a 4×2 model or if it is s 4-wheeled. The Jeep Compass will reach 0-60 mph in 9.3 seconds, and the quarter-mile in 17.1 seconds. It is therefore the slowest segment vehicle, while the Mazda CX-30 is the fastest with 0-60mph in 7.8 seconds and quarter-mile in 16.0 seconds.
The Jeep Compass’ ride and handling are unmatched by the Mazda CX-302. Although the Compass is a solid vehicle with a planted ride and well-weighted handling, it can be difficult to maneuver in tight spaces due to its wider turning radius. The braking performance of the Compass before us was impressed with a stopping distance of 60-0 mph and under 140 feet. We expect this to improve with new brakes for Compass 2022.
The Toyota RAV4 is the most powerful SUV with 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. It is followed by the Mazda CX-30 which has 186 horsepower and 186 pound-feet. With 181 horsepower, the Hyundai Tucson is more powerful than the Jeep Compass at 175 pound-feet. The Jeep Compass is still the most powerful SUV.
New 2022 Jeep Compass Fuel Economy
The Jeep Compass is known for its outstanding fuel efficiency, and the 2022 Compass will be no different. You can expect fuel efficiency of 22/30/25 in the city/highway/combined depending on how you combine the powertrain. A combined range of 330 miles is possible with a modest 13.5-gallons fuel tank.
Comparable rivals are much more efficient and the Toyota RAV4 leads at 27/35/30 MPG fuel economy figures in city/highway/combined. The Mazda CX-30 is next with 24/31/26 and 22/28/25 fuel economy, followed by the Hyundai Tucson at 22/28/25 fuel efficiency.
