The Night Eagle flies again.

The Jeep Compass range will once again open with a Night Eagle trim for 2022, replacing the Launch Edition that debuted as part of the small SUV’s mid-life update last year.

It’s priced $2000 higher than the variant it replaces, pushing the Compass’ base price perilously close to $40,000 at $39,950 before on-road costs.

The carryover Limited, S-Limited and Trailhawk are each up by $1000, while option prices have also crept up slightly.

As with other Night Eagle models in the Jeep line-up, the new base Compass will feature darkened exterior elements.

That includes 18-inch black-finish alloy wheels, plus gloss black detailing for the fog lamp bezels, grille and badging. The window surrounds are also finished in black, as is the roof.

Inside, there’s a black headliner, as well as piano black accents plus black accent stitching.

Pearl White is new to the Compass range’s colour palette, replacing the solid Bright White. It’ll be available to order from July 2022 as a no-cost option.
