Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2022, Jeep is giving the Compass lineup a host of updates that make it more desirable. Along with a revised front end that looks more upscale, its interior benefits from a new dashboard design and a new tablet-style touchscreen infotainment system with the latest Uconnect software.

Handsome exterior design,
packed with desirable modern tech,
Trailhawk lives up to Jeep's off-road image.

Lethargic gas powertrain,
can't tow as much as the Cherokee,
poor value proposition.
