Compass slowly becomes one of the Jeep’s most popular models. The upcoming 2022 Jeep Compass will gain even more success as it will offer a hybrid powertrain. This is not the only change. Whatsoever, spy shots are available, and we can see further cosmetic upgrades. The interior will get even more changes, new cabin design, and more high-tech amenities.
The gasoline-powered Compass won’t offer any performance boost, but Compass Hybrid will be the highlight for 2021, no doubt about it. Jeep plans to launch a new Compass in the second half of 2021, and its price will slightly increase.
2022 Compass Spy Photos
The all-new 2022 Jeep Compass has been spied once again. This time, we can see the latest changes that the manufacturer provides. For a start, new LED headlight and taillights are in the offer. This comes as no surprise, and Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Renegade are already offering similar units. The styling remains, and we can assume that the bodywork will be improved.
Moreover, Compass’s shape and dimensions will remain intact. The front fascia hosts a recognizable seven-slot grille and the same trapezoidal fender flares. The rear section was redesigned recently, so we don’t expect further changes in the back. Lastly, all of Compass’ trim levels will get the same type of updates.
The interior of the 2022 Jeep Compass will get more drastic upgrades than the exterior. This crossover should obtain a technology boost and, most likely, the cabin redesign. The FCA’s next-generation Uconnect infotainment system is confirmed. On top of that, an 8.4-inch touchscreen is offered as standard. Various reports are predicting new displays, thanks to the Jeep’s latest cooperation with Panasonic.
Moreover, Compass will host new driver-assistance aids. Thanks to that, the crossover will arrive with even better safety ratings. The interior will remain both roomy and practical as before. However, we expect from Jeep to deliver new upholstery and more high-quality materials.
The forthcoming 2022 Jeep Compass will get a new 1.3-liter engine. The same engine can be found under the hood of the new Renegade. That means 2.4-liter gasoline is gone. The new engine comes with a turbocharger and a stop/start system. It will generate around 180 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque. Compared to the previous engine that it replaces, 1.3-liter provides the same amount of horses. However, it also adds 35 lb-ft of torque.
The highlight for 2022 is the hybrid powertrain. According to the newest information, a hybrid variant will arrive both in Europe and America. It is a plug-in hybrid version that uses a standard 4×4 configuration. The hybrid system will be combined with a 1.3-liter engine, and it will produce up to 240 horsepower. The 2022 Compass PHEV will also offer 32 miles of all-electric driving range.
