    Spying: Jeep Compass/Patriot Replacement Makes An Early Reveal


    • What does the Jeep Compass/Patriot look like without the camouflage? 

    We know that Jeep is planning to replace the Compass and Patriot with one new model later this year, and we now have our first look at it undisguised. Brazilan outlet AUTOO got their hands of the new model before a photo shoot. 

    We can't tell if the name is Compass or something else on the front door due to the poor quality of the pictures. Everyone seems to believe it is Compass so we're going with that. The design looks to be a mashup of Grand Cherokee in the front and Cherokee for the remainder. There is the iconic seven-slot grille up front, albeit somewhat narrow. 

    AUTOO says the Brazilian-spec Compass will be offered with a 2.0L Tigershark four-cylinder or 2.0L Turbodiesel. Both engines will come paired with a nine-speed automatic and the choice of front or all-wheel drive. It would be safe to assume that the U.S. version will come with the 2.4L Tigershark.

    Jeep will debut the next Compass at the at the São Paulo Auto Show in Brazil this November. Expect a debut for the U.S. sometime thereafter.

    Looks like a compass, hopefully they will have a plug-in hybrid or pure ev in this thing. No need for the Diesel.

    One could hope, but I do not think they have the tech to pull it off.

    Looks really good, imo.  Would love to see a torque-happy diesel in it here in the U.S.  Also, their new turbo gas 4 sounds promising as well.  No need for the fatal compromise of electrification on this one.

    Different strokes for different folks.  i welcome a wealth of choices for various applications.  If you live in a major city with lots of charging stations, electric would be wonderful.  If you live in Montanna and drive a ton of miles, a diesel would be wonderful. We need to get out of a one size fits all thinking when it comes to vehicles.
