2022 Jeep Compass vs Chevy Trailblazer

The crossover SUV class is a competitive one, with brands jockeying to be the best. The Jeep Compass has been a major player in the crossover class, offering plenty of power, sporty looks, and a surprising amount of room. The Compass's fifth-generation begins in the 2022 model year and brings an aggressive look with performance and capability to back it up. The Trailblazer, which used to be one of Chevy's full-size SUVs, was reimagined for the 2022 model year to be a crossover. While it has a mean look, its power doesn't quite match, although some features are sure to impress. Continue reading below as we give you an inside look at both of these heavy-hitting crossover vehicles to help you decide which is best for you!

2022 Jeep Compass Power & Handling

The 2022 Jeep Compass features a 2.4-Liter Multi-Air Inline-4 engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission driving the front wheels. This setup provides a capable 177 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque. While front-wheel drive is the standard setup, Jeep's robust Active Drive 4x4 system is available to the entire compass lineup. Active Drive provides superior traction by seamlessly shifting into and out of four-wheel drive without any driver input when a loss of traction is detected. In addition, Active Drive 4x4 Compass models feature a 9-speed automatic transmission. To take capability one step further, the rugged Compass Trailhawk features Active Drive Low 4x4, providing a two-speed transfer case with a low-range gear ratio for better handling on difficult terrain.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Power & Handling

The 2022 Chevy Trailblazer comes standard with a 1.2L turbocharged I-3 engine offering just 137 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. The more attractive option of the two is the 1.3L turbocharged I-3 that bumps the output up to 155 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque; however, this is still less horsepower than the Compass. Trailblazer models that are equipped with the standard 1.2L engine are only available with front-wheel drive, while the 1.3L engine comes standard with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available. Additionally, the front-wheel-drive variants come with a continuously variable transmission, while the all-wheel-drive models come with a 9-speed automatic.

2022 Jeep Compass Features & Design

Jeep gave the Compass a complete makeover for the 2022 model year, updating the front fascia to be wider and more aggressive while also being functional, providing greater engine airflow. LED headlights are now standard for the Compass on all trim levels. In addition, the interior was upgraded with a reconfigured dashboard, a standard 8.4-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen, and a more premium overall feel. Uconnect 5 operates four times faster than the previous generation and offers wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, voice-activated TomTom navigation with live traffic updates, dual Bluetooth connectivity, Amazon Alexa, and much more. Higher trim levels of the 2022 Compass feature things like leather upholstery, heated front seats, heated rear seats, a 10.1-inch touchscreen, a 7-inch or 10.25-inch digital driver information display, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, and much more.

2022 Chevrolet Trailblazer Features & Design

The Trailblazer features a very sporty design with sharp edges and lines. The narrow pointed headlights and grille provide an aggressive frontal appearance, while the side profile adds a streamlined look. Inside, you'll find standard cloth upholstery, a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, wireless smartphone integration, and a 6-speaker sound system. Higher trim levels of the Trailblazer include fog lights, remote start, LED taillights, twin-tip exhaust outlets, an 8-inch touchscreen, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, deep-tinted rear glass, and push-button start.

Conclusion:
