    So we throw it out because the slots are shorter now?

    HUMMER's dead, so it really doesn't matter.

    And the way cooling and aero works, it likely makes sense to do it that way...

    They need to introduce this already, by the time they release it it'll have new competition from Honda's revamped CR-V.

    ... also remember, the Compass replacement might not be called the Compass. Wagoneer might be the replacement name. While the Grand Wagoneer fits the luxury line above Grand Cherokee.

    So how close in size will this be to the KL Cherokee? It just feels like if it's in the same size class, having 2 vehicles filling the same niche is a bit silly. I would understand if one were an offroad powerhouse, and the other more a commuter car. However, these both appear to be commuters first.

    Its not... Its smaller. It is based on the Renegade platform, but stretched. The Cherokee is based on the CUSW platform.

    Here is an early Compatriot replacement mule....

    I wasn't sure that that's what I was seeing. If they are there, then yes, absolutely Jeep.

    The Durango SRT Fascia is VERY similar to the new WK SRT one, so some of the styling cue's are going to be misleading.

    I understand that, I am just curious how similar the interior dimensions will be. Save for cargo space, Renegade was already similar in size the Cherokee as far as interior dimensions (actually beating Cherokee in many categories). If the interior dimensions are going to be closer, in the mind of a consumer what will differentiate the two? Does new-Compass get a V6 option? If not, would it eat into Cherokee 2.4L sales? I am just really curious what the strategy is for selling this vs Cherokee is.

    No. The platform the Renegade uses was not designed for a V6 engine. So the new Compass (or other name) won't offer one either.
    I do agree with the concern that the Jeep line up will appear crowded with too many similar looking and sized vehicles.

    Correct. The Compatriot replacement will be a bit narrower and not as long as the Cherokee as well.

    And, if like the Renegade, will be minus several options available on the Cherokee - Like 8.4, auto dimming headlights, auto windshield wipers, power tailgate......
