2017 Jeep Compass Replacement
We do believe that the replacement for 2017 Jeep Compass has been spotted for its driving test performance in USA. As a new model, it will be planned to replace the current Patriot. Based on some rumors, the company would like to introduce it at the second half of next year so that the production could be started sometime in 2017. Although this information is still bias, we found some details and rumors to help us get known more about this car.
2017 Jeep Compass as a new model is still not a fixed name. Jeep may prepare other name that could be Patriot or others. It represents CUV which means it will come between the Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Renegade. This new compact crossover is possible to have similar design and engine like Renegade but we found no confirmation yet. Jeep would like to release it as their effort to increase the sales market for more than 1.8 million vehicles by 2018.
Still based on some unofficial sites that 2017 Jeep Compass replacement will be completed with exterior design that is like what you will see on Jeep Renegade. It has unconventional look with aggressive design and boxy appearance. We hope that the similarities would not be too clear. Somehow the car needs its uniqueness and more identity. It will be designed with Small-Wide platform which is also used by Renegade. Both the cars will not offer the same dimension. This Patriot might go with longer body dimension and it is possible if this car will also borrow the independent suspension setup from Renegade.
2017 Jeep Compass Replacement – Possible Powertrain Options
2017 Jeep Compass for its replacement around the powertrain is unknown before. Regardless the fact, most people predicted that this new generation could come out with the same engine or a bit similar to Jeep Renegade. It means that this crossover could go with turbocharged four-cylinder engine and 2.0 liter with the standard setup is front-wheel drive while the new model could be featured with all-wheel drive as the optional.
The transmission in 2017 Jeep Compass is strongly believed as six-speed manual transmission. It is quite promising to see the new nine-speed automatic too.
We cannot help our self to expect that 2017 Jeep Compass should be released sometime in 2017 so that the presentation should be started in 2016. The price tag is still hard to define.
