2022 Jeep Compass: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

When the fully redesigned Jeep Compass was introduced in 2017, it gave Jeep a modern compact crossover with incredible off-roading prowess. It stood out as a rugged option in the segment that didn’t have anything with real off-roading capability. Entering its sixth model year on sale, we expect the 2022 Jeep Compass to be a carryover model, though a refresh is possible.

The redesigned Compass arrived in 2017 carrying iconic Jeep elements and a rugged design. Jeep’s iconic seven-slot grille sits above a large air intake. Triangular headlights, durable body cladding, and a ridged hood are also at the front. The rear end of the current Compass isn’t as dramatic, with smooth lines, oval taillights, and a thick rear bumper. Things should mostly remain the same for the 2022 Compass, though the refresh could bring an updated grille, headlights, and front fascia.

On the inside, the current Compass keeps things simple with a straightforward design and large dials and buttons. The compact SUV has a good mix of upscale and durable materials to highlight its rugged character, while being comfortable. A carryover 2022 Jeep Compass will retain a lot of the same design elements. A refreshed model is expected to have a new chunkier steering wheel, a new center console layout that separates the touchscreen and controls, as well as sweeping lines on the dashboard.

Currently, the Compass comes with a 7-inch touchscreen, six audio speakers, two USB ports, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Bluetooth as standard. An 8.4-inch touchscreen, an Alpine audio system, navigation, and an HD radio are optional. A carryover Compass will continue to have the same tech features, while a redesigned one should see a new 10.25-inch touchscreen and a 10.1-inch digital instrument cluster.

Jeep Compass

Jeep offers one engine with the Compass. Power comes from a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes 180 horsepower. Front-wheel-drive models come with a six-speed automatic, while all-wheel-drive SUVs come with a nine-speed automatic. This powertrain is expected to go unchanged for the 2022 model year.

The only standard safety feature on the current Compass is a rearview camera. Every advanced driver-assist system is optional on the SUV. The SUV earned mixed crash-test scores from both the IIHS and NHTSA. We expect these safety features and ratings to remain the same for the 2022 Jeep Compass.

Pricing & Release Date

Jeep hasn’t announced when the 2022 Compass will be released. Based on previous years, we expect the compact SUV to go on sale fall 2021.

Pricing remains unclear for the 2022 Jeep Compass. As an expected carryover model, the Compass should remain close to the current model’s range. Pricing for the current Compass ranges from $25,410 to $2,555 with destination. A redesigned 2022 Compass would see a hefty increase in pricing.

This compact SUV will compete against the Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5, Honda CR-V, and Kia Sportage.
