    Where Is the Jeep Compass/Patriot Replacement?


    • An explanation as to why the Compass/Patriot replacement wasn't shown in New York

    One vehicle many of us were expecting to debut at the New York Auto Show last week was the replacement for the Jeep Compass/Patriot. But it was a no-show. Instead, we were treated to two new versions of the Grand Cherokee. What happened?

     

    Jeep CEO Mike Manley told Australian outlet Motoring.com.au that debut will take place in Brazil as that will be first place where the model will be built.

     

    “We decided to launch the new C [segment] SUV in Brazil. It’ll be the first plant that gets the global vehicle, so no delays — it’s on track,” said Manley.

     

    As we reported last year, the Compass and Patriot will merge into one new model. It is expected the model will wear the Compass nameplate as Patriot isn't going to work in other markets.

    Compass was a feminine looking terrible cuv. Patriot is what it needs to be called here in the US and retire the stupid Compass name. This smells of more of Sergio's incompetent leadership.

    The Compass was not bad, but it was not great either. We had a Compass for a month while my Cobalt was waiting on the recall. Part of it is that it drives like the station wagon it is. That said, it was pretty useful for stuff, and had some get up and go.

     

    Like the Patriot, but man is it long in the tooth....
