2018 Jeep Compass and Patriot replacement due in the fall

2018 Jeep Compass and Patriot replacement due in the fall

640 × 480
Jeep have announced the vehicle that replaces both the Jeep Compass and the Jeep Patriot will be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November this year. Jeep are planning to replace both vehicles with a single successor but we don’t yet know what.

We do know that the replacement vehicle will continue one of the two names, but we don’t know which one. What we do know is that both vehicles are worthy of a successor and that FCA have their work cut out to deliver a vehicle that combines the best of both the Compass and Patriot while competing with some of the very capable SUVs out there in the market.

The new vehicle will be unveiled in Brazil this fall at a ceremony at their manufacturing plant.

2016 Jeep Compass
The 2016 Jeep Compass is a great looking, great value compact crossover. The smaller sibling to the Cherokee, the Compass is not diminished by playing second fiddle to its larger brethren. It seems happy in its segment and more than content with its lot.

The design of the Compass is a good one. It has all the hallmarks of a Jeep without any of the negatives. The front end is a smaller version of the Cherokee, with nice headlights, a tidy grille and a very familiar look. The hood bulge is a neat touch while the modern profile keeps buyers coming back for more.

Inside, the recently uprated interiors are proving their worth. The materials are all higher quality, finishing is better across the board and the controls are all where they should be.

Under the hood is a 2.0-litre four cylinder that puts out 158 hp and 141 lb-ft of torque. It uses a five speed manual or a CVT and comes in front or all-wheel drive. There is also the option of a 2.4-litre engine that produces 172 hp and 165 lb-ft of torque that comes with the option of  a six speed automatic transmission.

The 2016 Jeep Compass is a no-nonsense, good value crossover that will be missed by its fans. We hope that the successor, whether called the Compass or Patriot will do the marque justice.

If you’re in the market for a great value compact crossover, the 2016 Jeep Compass is an excellent option. Visit Unique Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, 915 Walkers Line, Burlington, ON  L7N 3V8 to see it for yourself.
