Is the 2022 Jeep Compass reliable?

The new Compass is reliable and designed to perform in all road conditions. The four-cylinder engine and advanced 4×4 and all-wheel drive systems will help you navigate Lexington’s winding backroads without any trouble. The Compass also has good gas mileage, with an EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

The snow mode helps you to feel safe during the thick of Kentucky’s winters, allowing wheel slip for improved traction. All the front-wheel trims have a six-speed automatic transmission, while the all-wheel-drive models have a nine-speed automatic transmission and terrain conquering modes.


What is new in the 2022 Jeep Compass interior?

The 2022 Jeep Compass got an interior makeover, with a nice new dashboard and better features. The interior has room for four adult passengers and the seats are high enough to support passengers’ legs comfortably. The leather-trimmed, heated front and rear seats and steering wheel give the interior a luxurious feel[1].

The instrument panel was also redesigned to have a fabric mid-bolster and slim air vents. The Compass features the new Uconnect5 system on a 10.1-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple Car Play and Android Auto, and wireless charging. A 10.25-inch digital cluster display is available, as well.

If you love music, you will love the Alpine premium audio system, which lets you blast your tunes through a 12-channel, 506-watt amplifier, nine speakers, and an 8-inch subwoofer.

What is new about the 2022 Jeep Compass exterior?

The redesigned 2022 Compass is modern and sleek, helping you transition from off-roading in the day, to downtown Lexington city streets at night. It has the iconic Jeep seven-slot grille, with rounded edges and a new texture to give a refreshed look. The fascia was also redesigned, enhancing the curves of the exterior. There is also a gloss black roof available, which gives the Compass even more of a sleek look.

The new Compass was designed to be safe in all weather conditions. The rain-sensing windshield wipers sense moisture on the windshield, then automatically activate the wipers. The heated exterior mirrors help you to keep a clear view of the road when it’s snowing. The windshield wiper de-icer clears the windshield of slush and ice by heating the bottom of the windshield.

Overall, the redesigned 2022 Jeep Compass is functional, yet still has an elevated, modern exterior.


Is the 2022 Jeep Compass safe?

Yes – the 2022 Compass has an array of standard and available advanced safety and security systems, including:

  • Standard forward-collision warnings with active braking, using advanced radar sensors help detect if your Compass is approaching another vehicle too fast. It alerts you and applies the brakes, if necessary.
  • Standard blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-path detection, to alert you when other vehicles travel into one of your blind spot zones and warn you of unseen vehicles or obstacles when in reverse.
  • Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology, to help relieve you of the pressure of long drives and stop-and-go traffic, adjusting your speed to maintain a preselected distance from the vehicle ahead
  • Active lane management, which measures your position within lane boundaries. If it detects an unintentional lane drift, it will alert you and correct the vehicle back into its lane. It also provides steering correction to help avoid a collision with surrounding vehicles in one of your blind spot zones.
  • Seven standard and advanced airbags (side-curtain front and rear), to help keep you safe in a crash.
