The updated 2022 Jeep® Compass has already begun to roll off the assembly line in Guangzhou, China. With five different plants around the globe building the compact SUV, there have been a lot of questions surrounding Jeep’s most popular global model. Thanks to several sources, we are finally getting details on when the rest of the world will be getting its chance to see the newly revised Compass.
Thanks to our good friends at AutoCar India, we have learned that the 2022 Jeep Compass will make its official debut on January 7th, 2021. The current Compass has been a huge success for the Jeep brand in the Indian market and according to sources, the updated Compass has already started production at the Ranjangaon facility in Pune, India. The newest model should go on sale immediately after its unveiling.
Unlike the Chinese-spec models which we have talked about earlier, the Indian-spec models will continue to feature 2.0-liter turbodiesel and 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engines.
Following the Indian debut, the Italian Melfi Assembly Plant which currently manufactures the Compass and electrified Compass 4xe models for Europe and most of the Middle-East will launch its version of the revised compact SUV. We have heard that production of the revised Compass from Melfi, we start sometime in early January.
It was recently reported that the Melfi plant would expand production of its Renegade and Compass models, due to demand. That should go into effect on February 15th, according to the website ClubAlfa.
The Pernambuco, Brazil plant which manufacturers the Renegade and Compass for the Latin American and South American markets are reported to start production of the revised Brazilian-Spec model in March. The Compass and Renegade both play important roles in the success of the Jeep brand in that region. Brazil is the second biggest market in the world for the Jeep brand behind the United States, with 22% of the country’s SUV sales.
For those living in the North American region, the Toluca, Mexico Assembly Plant has already undergone updates for the 2022 models. Production isn’t expected to start until April according to our friends in the dealer communities. This would put the Compass on schedule for the 2021 Moab Easter Jeep Safari event. Originally the Moab event coincides with the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS), however, that event has been scheduled for Friday, August 20th, 2021 to Sunday, August 29th, 2021.
This means for us in the North American market, we should be seeing the new models roll into dealerships sometime late in the second quarter of 2021.
