Set to take up a prominent position in the brand’s line-up and slot in between the Renegade and the Cherokee, the Compass will be produced in a breathtaking 17 powertrain options for consumers residing in over 100 countries around the world.
Built on an elongated Renegade platform, the newest entrant into the Jeep line-up is expected to feature front-wheel drive as standard and four-wheel drive as a commonly selected option. The word on the ground is that the 2018 Jeep Compass could feature a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine or a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated engine mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission.
Gunning to be the most capable compact SUV ever, the all-new Compass will be available in North America in the first quarter of 2017 and in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, starting the second half of 2017.
