2022 Jeep Compass vs 2022 Chevy Trailblazer

SUVs are top-rated for a reason. They are competent family haulers with solid engine options and plenty of fun features, but with so many on the market, it can be challenging to know which one is best for you and your family. Two of the best out there right now are the 2022 Jeep Compass and the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer. Both SUVs are powerful and well-equipped, but which one has the advantage? For the answer, we have compared both of these SUVs to see which one will be best for you and your family!

2022 Jeep Compass Power & Handling

Under the 2022 Jeep Compass hood, you will find a terrific 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that pumps out 177 horsepower and 172 lb-ft of torque. This engine is powerful enough to get you to where you want to go! On the Sport and Latitude trims, the Compass gets standard front-wheel-drive, though all-wheel-drive is available if you want a tad more traction for those bad weather days. All other trims come standard with all-wheel-drive. Those who go with front-wheel-drive will get a six-speed automatic transmission, while those with all-wheel-drive get a nine-speed automatic transmission. Both offer you a smooth ride! So, whether in the city or the woods, the Compass has your back!

2022 Chevy Trailblazer Power & Handling

With the Trailblazer, you get a couple of engine options, and there’s some decent power to be had here. The standard engine is a turbocharged 1.2-liter four-cylinder that kicks out up to 137 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque that comes with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Front-wheel-drive is the default setup here. Want something with a little more pep? The Trailblazer also offers a turbocharged 1.3-liter four-cylinder that ups the horsepower and torque and pairs with a nine-speed automatic transmission. While we like both of these engines, the Compass is more impressive.

2022 Jeep Compass Features & Design

The 2022 Jeep Compass comes with five trim levels, each with extraordinary features. We start with the Sport, which comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, heated mirrors, roof rails, rear air vents, cloth upholstery, and a height-adjustable driver’s seat. In addition, several tech features are available for the Compass Sport, such as an 8.4-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and satellite radio. But wait, that’s not all! The Sport also has several safety features such as forward collision mitigation and a blind-spot monitor. Next up is the Latitude, which adds to the Sport with foglights and automatic headlights, keyless entry and ignition, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. New this year is the Latitude Lux trim, which piles on the luxury items with features such as 18-inch wheels, a remote engine start, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather upholstery, a giant 10.1-inch touchscreen, automatic wipers, ambient interior lighting, and dual-zone climate control. Off-road enthusiasts will love the Trailhawk trim, which adds many solid off-road items, including off-road-oriented tires, a raised suspension, hill descent control, a unique all-wheel-drive system, and tow hooks, and underbody skid plates.

2022 Chevy Trailblazer Features & Design

There is one less trim level available for the Trailblazer, so it only stands to reason that it will come with fewer features. The base trim level is the LS which comes standard with some exciting features such as 17-inch alloy wheels, a Wi-Fi hotspot, automatic high beams, a six-speaker audio system, and a 7-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. More advanced features are available for the LT as it has roof rails, LED foglights, heated mirrors, proximity keyless entry and push-button ignition, heated front seats, and a power driver’s seat. The Trailblazer can go off-road, too, thanks to the Activ trim, as it comes with underbody skid plates and a tow hitch receiver. This trim has simulated leather upholstery, a rear-seat armrest, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and unique styling elements. Higher trims have premium items such as 18-inch alloy wheels with standard tires and red-exterior accents. We like what the Trailblazer offers a lot, but the Compass offers you more!
