2022 Compass Exterior

The new year brings some pleasing updates to the Compass, and Jeep knows that consumers shop with their hearts just as much as with their heads. Emotive styling can do a lot to sell people on a new car, and often helps them overlook its failings. The front fascia leaves a lasting first impression thanks to an updated seven-slot grille with rings in gloss black, silver, grey, or chrome, depending on the trim. Flanking this, you'll find slimmer LED reflector headlights, though to get the fog lamps, you have to upgrade to the Latitude. You can tell each trim apart since each gets its own unique exterior elements. Altitude models get a two-tone exterior with a gloss black roof, the Limited has gloss-black trimming around the grille, while the off-roading Trailhawk gets an earthier grey tone. The Trailhawk also sports a signature red and black hood decal.

The Sport rides on 16-inch wheels, the Latitude and Trailhawk on 17s, the Altitude, Latitude Lux ,and Limited on 18s, and the top-tier High Altitude gets very bold 19-inch alloys. The top model also comes standard with a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, which has to be optioned on to the lower trims. The special (RED) edition comes with 19-inch Granite wheels, red paint, and Neutral Gray exterior trim.

The Jeep Compass is a small but rugged crossover, and its dimensions are a little smaller than its competitors. The wheelbase is 103.8 inches long, and overall length is 173.4 inches. With the mirrors folded, width measures 73.8 inches, and the crossover stands 64.6 inches tall. The available roof rails add 0.2 inches of height. Ground clearance with the front-wheel drivetrain is 7.7 inches, and 8.1 inches with the 4x4.

The Trailhawk gets even more ground clearance at 8.5 inches, which empowers its off-roading abilities. This gives the trail-rated Compass Trailhawk approach/breakover/departure angles of 30.4/23.6/34 degrees. Curb weight varies between trims and drivetrain, starting at 3,184 pounds, and maxing out at 3,633 lbs.
