2022 Jeep Compass Towing Capacity & Engine Specs

Naperville-area motorists already know that the towing capacity behind any Jeep SUV leaves little to be desired. The same goes for the 2022 Jeep Compass towing capacity, which adds up to an impressive 2,000 pounds—more than a respectable number for a compact SUV!

On top of the 2022 Jeep Compass model’s 2,000-pound towing capacity, you’ll also find a surprisingly spacious and versatile cabin that seats up to five passengers and offers nearly 60 cubic feet of cargo space. Every Jeep Compass comes equipped with a 2.4L MultiAir gas engine and can be configured with either a FWD or 4×4 drivetrain. Take a closer look at the specs here:

  • 2.4L I-4 MultiAir engine with FWD
  • 180 hp
  • 175 lb-ft of torque
  • 6-speed automatic transmission
  • EPA-estimated 22 mpg city/31 mpg highway
  • 4,400 Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR)

If you plan to tow heavy loads, be sure to select the 4×4 drivetrain option. This will make available a higher GVWR, while the addition of a 9-speed automatic transmission will provide you with smooth sailing along the highways of Joliet and beyond. Keep in mind that you’ll sacrifice a bit of fuel efficiency when upgrading to the 4×4 drivetrain. Another way to make the most of your towing power is to equip with the Jeep Compass Towing Package, as you’ll see below:

Jeep Compass Towing Package Features

  • The available Jeep Compass Towing Package comes with a four-pin wiring harness and a class III tow-hitch receiver.
  • The addition of a ParkView® Rear Back-Up Camera means that hitching up to your trailer is easier than ever!
