The 2022 Jeep Compass is presented in eight trim levels: Sport, Latitude, Altitude, Latitude Lux, Trailhawk, Limited, High Altitude, and the (RED) edition. They all share the same 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which develops 177 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard on the Sport and Latitude, but a 4x4 drivetrain is available, and standard on the remaining models.
The basic Compass comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, cloth upholstery, manual front seats, air conditioning, keyless entry and ignition, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and six speakers. The safety suite comprises full-speed forward collision warning and emergency braking, lane management, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and hill-start assist.
The Latitude adds larger wheels, fog lights, and premium touches to the steering and shifter. For off-roading, the Trailhawk receives a specially tuned suspension and Jeep Active Drive Low, as well as hill-descent assist. The Latitude Lux gets larger wheels again, leather upholstery, and a heated steering wheel and front seats. The Limited comes with a few more high-end options and rides on 18-inch aluminum diamond cut wheels, while the High Altitude sports huge 19-inch wheels and a dual-pane sunroof.
The (RED) edition features 19-inch Granite Wheels, a Redline body color roof, and Neutral Gray grille rings, while the Altitude gets blacked-out exterior accents and piano black interior highlights.
The price of the 2022 Jeep Compass is quite competitive for the segment. The base Sport with the front-wheel drivetrain goes for just $26,390, with the Latitude asking for $28,485. Altitude models start at $30, 130. All three models can upgrade to four-wheel drive for an additional $1,500, but every other model gets 4WD as standard. The Latitude Lux is the cheapest of the standard 4x4 models at $31,195. The Limited costs $32,995, the Trailhawk is priced at $33,210, and the (RED) goes on sale for $34,790. The High Altitude tops the list at $35,690. These are MSRP prices, which do not include the $1,595 destination charge in the USA. It's worth noting that some trims require an additional $395 for exterior paint, too.
The best way to get bonus features is to move up through the trim levels since prices aren't too far apart. However, there are several packages to review that bridge some of the gaps between trims. While the Sport doesn't have anything noteworthy in terms of packages, the Driver Assistance Group ($1,495) bestows some of the more advanced driver assists on the Latitude, including a surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, park assist, and premium LED fog lights. The Convenience Group ($1,695) further empowers the Latitude with heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a power driver's seat, and dual-zone climate control. The panoramic sunroof and premium Alpine sound system upgrade can be added on as part of the Sun and Sound Group for $2,195 and is also available to the Latitude Lux, Limited, and Trailhawk
For the Latitude Lux, there is a $1,995 Lux Driver Assist package that adds a surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, dual-zone climate control, parking assist, a power liftgate, and a variety of other convenience features. The Limited gets its own version of this bundle for $2,295, including more features such as traffic sign recognition and a universal garage door opener.
Premium leather upholstery is available on the Trailhawk, Limited, and High Altitude as part of the Elite Group, though the price varies between trims, from $1,495 to $2,995. You can also get the Convenience and Driver Assist Groups on the Trailhawk, for $1,295 and $2,295, respectively.
Don't let the wide selection and odd names confuse you. Even the base model, the Sport, is a good value proposition. Nevertheless, we'd propose that the Latitude is the best Compass, as it gives you more customization options. The step up to the Lux is a $3k jump, and it still misses out on some of the top features. Instead, we'd option on the Convenience and Driver Assist Groups, which give you something akin to the Limited for a lot less money. However, if you intend on using the Compass for regular camping trips into the great unknown, we'd have to choose the Trailhawk, since it has the best off-road capabilities.
