2022 Jeep Compass
The Jeep Compass has been a test vehicle for Jeep in terms of updates to tech and new engineering. One of the first 4xe models, the Compass was once the leading model in the Jeep lineup for modern tech. Receiving more updates in 2022, the Jeep Compass gets even better once again.

This engine is capable of generating up to 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque.

This system offers 4×4 trims with five modes of driving – Auto, Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud, and Rock.
