The automotive media stands behind the 2022 Jeep Compass. The reviewer at Car and Driver praised the 2022 Jeep Compass, writing:
“The 2022 Jeep Compass is a compact crossover that enjoys the brand’s rugged cachet and can be outfitted to actually excel off-road. It fills the space between the smaller Renegade and the slightly larger Cherokee and competes against alternatives such as the Mazda CX-5 and Toyota RAV4. ... Of course, Jeep’s image is based on getting off the beaten path, and the Trailhawk trim is the best equipped to accomplish that.”
Several drive modes assist all-wheel-drive Compass models in negotiating different driving situations. Set on automatic, the system automatically selects the amount of torque to send to the wheels. Drivers can select Snow, Sand and Mud modes to get the best grip for the prevailing road conditions. The Compass Trailhawk features a low gear ratio and a Rock mode that keep the vehicle in first gear and send power to the wheels with traction.
