If you’re looking for a cheap, small, relatively fuel-efficient crossover that can hold its own on and off-road, the 2017 Jeep Compass is the Jeep to get. Yes, more so than the Renegade. The Compass looks great, offers a roomy and comfortable interior, and goes a long way to healing the shame we all felt for the…
Old Jeep hoarder and former FCA engineer David Tracy gave an appropriate send off for the old Jeep Compass. It was a terrible car that was part of Chrysler’s “Ah screw it this is good enough” portfolio and we shouldn’t trust our children with one.
Let me apologize up front, because I’m about to show you something that cannot be unseen. Every time you look at a 2017 Jeep Compass on the road, you won’t be able to keep your eyes off that big, fat imposter of an upper grille.
It’s pretty obvious what the design mandate for the 2017 Jeep Compass must have been: “make it look like a little Grand Cherokee.” And it worked. It really worked. One of the least-relevant nameplates in SUVs has a whole new lease on life going into next year.
In its last major corporate update Fiat Chrysler announced it would replace the Jeep Compass and Patriot with a new “C-Segment” SUV this year. Officially, we haven’t heard much about that since. But some spy shots from Brazil seem to give a pretty clear indication of what Jeep’s up to with their next smallish 4x4.
We’ve known that the plucky Jeep Compass and Patriot small SUVs were going to be scrapped in favor of an all new “C-Segment” vehicle this year, but new reports out of the 2016 Detroit Auto Show are saying one of these nameplates will live on.
The Jeep Compass only exists because Chrysler has paid for all the tooling and every one they sell is pretty much pure profit. It’s a pretty poor excuse for an automobile. What do you need to know before you make a huge mistake and buy a Jeep Compass? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in our Buyer’s…
As he showed off the refreshed Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Compass this morning (but not the new Jeep Liberty, which I really hope will stay as just a jacked up Alfa Romeo Giulieta because I'd totally fucking buy that), Jeep CEO and president Mike Manley made a surprising admission: Jeep now cares about the vehicles…
At this year's Easter Jeep Safari, the annual culmination of Utah's off-roading holy week, Chrysler's again hauling out concept Jeeps to tempt the faithful, combining aftermarket gear with stuff from the Mopar catalog. Yesterday, you saw the "Jeep Wrangler JK-8 Independence." Today, there are more.
Chrysler unveiled the 2011 Jeep Compass yesterday, revealing a 3/5ths scale Grand Cherokee with numerous updates to its poorly received predecessor driving on heavily photomanipulated roads. Maybe if you squint all the time it'll look like a real off-roader.
