    Current Jeep Compass and Patriot To Stick Around For 2017


    • FCA plans on building a stockpile of Jeep Compass and Patriots before their replacement shows up

    While the replacement for the Jeep Compass and Patriot is just around the corner, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has made the decision to extend production of the two models into the 2017 model year.

     

    Sources tell Automotive News that FCA has a plan to end production of both models on December 23rd at the Belvidere, Illinois plant. North American production of the replacement model will begin on January 30, 2017, at FCA's Toluca, Mexico. With a month's gap, FCA wants to make sure they have a stockpile of both models until the replacement model starts arriving at dealers on a regular basis.

     

    An FCA spokesman declined to comment.

     

    As for Belvidere, the plant will be closed from the holiday break to May 14, 2017 to retool for producing the Cherokee.

    This is understandable, wonder what the replacement will look like and what the over all fit n finish will be.

     

    This also tells me that some good deals will be available on these at the end of the year and early part of next year as they blow them out then.

    There are pretty clear spy photos of the Compass/Patriot replacement making the rounds over onto the interwebs.  It looks like a junior Grand Cherokee in the front, and the rear looks like a cross between a junior Grand Cherokee and slightly bigger Renegade.

    I think the front end will look really nice based on the spy shots. It think size wise it'll be similar to the Hyundai Tucson, which is like in-between size of subcompact and compact crossovers.

      Previous Page Next Page Say hello to the new 2017 Jeep Compass. The new model which will replace both the current Compass and Patriot was revealed last night at FCA's Brazilian Jeep Assembly Plant in Goiana, Pernambuco.
      As we saw in spy photos last week, the new Compass' exterior looks like a mashup of Cherokee and Grand Cherokee. The interior looks to be more like the Cherokee with a similar design and layout. Jeep is keeping quiet on powertrains for the new Compass. They did reveal that the Compass would offer “17 fuel-efficient powertrain options for consumers in more than 100 countries around the world.” Many believe the U.S.-spec Compass will come with a 2.0L turbo-four and a 2.4L Tigershark four-cylinder. Both engines will come paired with a nine-speed automatic.
      We'll learn more about the Compass this November as it will debut at the LA Auto Show.
