Jeep has just refreshed its Compass model series for 2022, with the much-demanded updates. The results are clearly visible in the new exterior design cues as well as in its interior styling. However, the most important change in the 2022 model year lineup of the Jeep Compass series is the presence of a new trim level, named as the Latitude Lux.
On the other hand, the 2022 Jeep Compass continues to use the same 2.0L inline-4 engine rated at 177-hp, known for delivering a standard on-road performance but goes exemplary when tested on the off-road patches, commented a seller at the Morganton Jeep dealership.
The refreshed design of the 2022 Jeep Compass looks elegant, both inside and out. While the exterior goes crisp with some smart updates, the inside cabin flaunts some new design elements that follow the latest state-of0-the-art recipe.
The new feature, you get to see in the 2022 Jeep Compass models as standard, is the new 10.1-inch touchscreen display that stands taller than before. The latest infotainment system now also includes a wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality. There are improvements done in the safety corner as well. The 2022 Jeep Compass models are now safer to drive. They secure your rides with the most advanced safety technologies like Automatic emergency braking, a 360-degree view camera with a Blind-spot monitoring system, Adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist that works with a Lane departure warning, a Rear cross-traffic alert with Rear parking sensors, and a Post-collision safety system. Driving the 2022 Jeep Compass becomes easier in hilly regions with a Hill descent control working towards preventing it from a backward body roll while its rain-sensing windshield wipers help you drive through rains.
Features for Better Ride Comfort
The 2022 Jeep Compass models are open to endless optional upgrades. Jeep designates a Convenience package for the buyers who wants to add more comfort to their Compass models.

There is also a pricier list of options named the High Altitude package, which can be installed only on the Limited trim to add features like a complete set of LED lighting, 19-inch aluminum wheels, panoramic sunroof, and many more.
The 2022 Jeep Compass models use a 2.4L four-cylinder engine, which continues earlier generation. Being the only available engine option across the entire lineup of the 2022 Jeep Compass, it makes 177 hp and 172 lb-ft. of torque when it pairs with a 6-speed automatic transmission with an FWD setup. However, to offer another powertrain variety, Jeep allows you to select a 9-speed automatic transmission to team up with the engine that automatically enables a 4WD setup.
With this engine at work, the 2022 Jeep Compass models can pick up a speed of 0-60 MPH in 9.3 seconds, while it reaches a distance of a quarter of a mile in 17.1 seconds with a top speed of 117 MPH, informed the Jeep dealership Morganton.
