The 2018 Jeep Compass is a compact SUV crossover to be set up for the 2007 model year Jeep made its public compass debut in 2006 International Auto Show North America in January. The Jeep Compass, as well as the Patriot, will take over as the entry-level Jeep SUV Jeep Liberty and will be one of the first Jeep crossover SUVs.
Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot are based on the DaimlerChrysler / Mitsubishi GS platform. The Jeep Compass trims will be differentiated by their style and marketing: The Jeep Patriot is a traditional 4-door Jeep wagon, while the Compass is designed as a sports crossover “hot hatch” like the Toyota Matrix. Dodge Caliber, also based on the GS platform is a combination of these two segments.
However, the basic model version has only FWD, a first for a Jeep. Compass is the first Jeep offered for several years that are not badged as “Trail Rated”. This indicates that the compass has failed the same test skills Jeep SUV other vehicles in terms of traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water trailer. Although Chrysler has released a 2008 version of the 2008 model year SRT4 high-performance Dodge Caliber, it is unlikely that an edition of Compass’s Street and Racing SRT will be released.
