These cars have a dual heater core setup ['15 and newer] - so there's an actuator for driver's side, passenger side that regulate the amount of heat directed to each side (and allows blending temps for A/C operation).
So its a single constant displacement style A/C compressor. One chiller circuit feeding into the dual heater core box.
For reference, the earlier ['14 and older] had single zone heating / cooling. '11 brought auto-climate control, where '10 and earlier was manual climate controls...
The only vehicles that are stop start seem to be the Jeep models other than Wrangler that have engine stop/start - they get ~ 1 mpg higher on city cycle and this also lower the CO2 emissions on the EPA test.
For the models sold outside the US, the C02 emissions are a big deal with in the those countries; often the similar setup will be deployed across the line, and for the EPA test cycle, the higher MPG helps with a maker's CAFE number and the credits they earn. [if they're under the CAFE, they get fines...this goes back decades when CAFE requirements came into play]
