All-New Jeep Compass Finally Debuts Looking Like a Meaner Renegade

The new Jeep Compass has been introduced in celebration of the start of production at FCA’s Brazilian Jeep Assembly Plant in Goiana, Pernambuco.

Heading to market as a global compact SUV, the Jeep Compass will be produced with 17 fuel-efficient powertrain options when it’s sold in more than 100 different countries in the world. Although the American automaker didn’t release complete details about the new Compass, it promises that it will deliver best-in-class 4×4 off-road capability, advanced fuel-efficient powertrains, premium and authentic Jeep design, superior on-road driving dynamics, open-air freedom and a host of safety and advanced technology offerings.

The new SUV will replace both the existing Compass and Patriot models, slotting between the Renegade and Cherokee. Under the hood, expect to see either a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine or a 2.4-liter four-cylinder mill, both paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

It will also head to North America starting the first quarter of 2017 and it will make its first public debut at the 2016 L.A. Auto Show in November. Expect more details to be released then.

I like the looks of this, just not really sure where it fits in, I feel like its in the exact same class as the Cherokee? Unless they are aiming for a cheaper price point (I doubt it though).
2012 Crush JK Rubicon. Teraflex 2.5" coil w/fox shocks and ATS, 1/2" front and 1" rear TF spacers. TF monster front and rear track bar, RK F/R lower arms, Ruff Stuff front upper. 315 75r16 duratracs. LOD armor lite mid w/Warn VR 8000. Lots of other goodies.

I was really surprised to see this continued honestly, but it kind of makes sense. The days of Jeep trying to rely on marketing only two vehiches are gone, and with this being a mix of already successful vehicles, it seems to have a place.

Always liked the look of the Patriot better than the new Grand Cherokee, Compass, and Renegade, but I wouldn't be surprised if that came back in a few years and tries what the Commander did, but in a somewhat of a middle ground of features and affordability.

I like it, but the 9 speed AT would be the deal killer for me.
