The New Jeep Compass Premiere
|   Wednesday, October 26, 2016
During the period when the majority of car enthusiasts around the world have eyes fixed on Paris, the venue of one of the most important International Auto Show of the year, Jeep decided to reveal the first images of new Compass somewhere else.

After almost nine years since the launch of the current generation, those from Jeep tell us that the time has come for a new Compass generation. The new version went into production at the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles plant from Goiania, Brazil and will be officially launched in November at the International Motor Show from Los Angeles.


It must be said from the very beginning that the new Compass is seen by the American car maker as a global model and will reach over one hundred countries worldwide. Already in production, the first Jeep Compass models will be ready for delivery in the first months of 2017.
As was expected, the first market where the new Compass generation models will rest is the US, following next that the SUV will take the path of Europe, Middle East and Africa.

The Jeep Compass is found in the manufacturer's range under the Cherokee models, respectively Grand Cherokee. Thus, this model has been used as inspiration for a number of design elements and more. The general lines of new Compass generation’s appearance are the same that we know from the Grand Cherokee, the model still benefits from some discrete optical blocks and the same front grille which can be recognized with eyes closed too.

Standing 4.42 meters long, 1.82 meters wide, 1.65 meters in height with a wheelbase of 2.64 meters, the new Jeep Compass is shorter, and not as tall compared to the previous generation, but retains the hierarchical position between the Renegade and Cherokee models. According to the American manufacturer the new Compass is the most capable compact SUV ever produced.

On the outside the new Jeep Compass reminds us of the previous generation, but the proportions are more successful, and some ideas are taken from current models Renegade, Cherokee and Grand Cherokee.

There will be several versions, including one ordinary with urban bumpers, one which has bumpers with high angles of attack, Longitude, and a version dedicated to rugged terrain, Trailhawk, which comes with distinctive red and black elements, and a hood with the middle part painted in matt black.

The interior design is very close to the Cherokee model, but the Jeep Compass comes with several stylistic improvements, here being found a partially digital dashboard. The multimedia system display is 8.4 inches and the luggage compartment has a volume of 410 liters.

Although Jeep has not yet officially announced the range of engines dedicated for the market in Europe, rumors say the new Compass will have a diesel unit with a displacement of 2.2 liters and the gasoline units are already known from the Renegade, all coupled to manual six-speed transmissions or automatic one with nine reports. In Brazil, the Compass is powered by a diesel engine with a displacement of 2 liters and 170 hp, and an aspirated gasoline and ethanol unit, Flex Fuel engine, with a displacement of 2 liters and 166 hp.

The basic versions will be front-wheel drive, while those with more powerful engines get the all-wheel drive system Selec-Terrain, which offers four running programs (Auto, Snow, Sport, Sand / Mud), or even five with the additional dedicated off-road version Trailhawk, which will also benefit from a ground clearance raised by 2 cm.
