New Jeep Compass 2022 changes more inside than outside; see photos


It didn’t take long for the new 2022 Jeep Compass to be officially unveiled. Just a day after releasing teasers of the model, the manufacturer showed the car in China, during the Guangzhou Show. The SUV brings a slight visual change to the exterior, focusing on the inside with the addition of items such as digital dashboard, a new steering wheel and a tablet-style multimedia center. The launch in Brazil will be in the middle of next year.

As seen in the teaser, the interior of the Jeep Compass 2022 is the part that has changed the most. Now that multimedia has become a floating 10.1 ”screen, it has freed up space on the dashboard and the SUV has adopted a new design for the console. It has a leather finish that runs from the steering wheel to the door, outlined by two silver fins at the top and bottom. The central air outlet has a new design, matching the screen.

The air conditioning controls are just below, adopting much smaller buttons and in an arrangement that takes up less space. In front of the gearshift is a wireless charger for smartphones. The steering wheel also has a new look, with a style similar to that of the Grand Wagoneer concept, but with an extra stem at the bottom. Behind it is the fully digital instrument panel, using a 10.25 ”LCD screen.

The multimedia center brings a new version of the Uconnect system, now in its fifth generation. It has a wireless connection for Apple CarPlay and Baidu CarLife (which acts as Android Auto in China). It still has an artificial intelligence voice command system, although the manufacturer hasn’t said what it is capable of.

Outside, the Compass adopts a detail coming from the Grand Wagoneer, with a black finish at the central air intake, interconnecting the fog lights. The upper grille uses a new internal design in the seven air intakes, with chrome lines, while the headlights are considerably thinner and longer, with full-LED lighting and the DRL on the top.

Restyling has changed almost nothing in the measurements: the Compass 2022 measures 4,424 meters in length, 1,819 m in width, 1,652 m in height and maintains a 2,636 m wheelbase. They are 9 mm longer and 17 mm higher in height, while the width and the wheelbase remain unchanged.

The Compass Trailhawk has also been revamped, but its style has some differences from the normal model. Set aside all the chrome details to use matte black paint. In addition, the central air intake has a different shape, without the black horizontal bar. The fog lights are a little lower and have their own area. Finally, he kept the red tow hooks at the bottom of the bumper.

The mechanical part had no changes for the Chinese market, which already used the 1.3 turbo engine with 173 hp combined with an automated double-clutch transmission with 7 gears. In Brazil, this engine will finally make its debut and should deliver around 180 hp when fueled with ethanol, combined with a CVT transmission. The launch of the national Jeep Compass 2022 will take place in the middle of next year.
