    If it comes out looking like that, IMO they'll have a winner.

    Wish they all had a rear window as upright as the Renegade.

    I'm thinking they might move Cherokee to v6 only, and keep the 4cyl in the compass. (Whatever they call it)

    .. I wish whoever had taken the pics of the ad (if not Photoshop), had taken a pic of the name too.

    Ive been told by a reliable source that the Car and Driver renderings are spot on....

    So yes, they basically do look like that. It will be a winner IMO.

    Looks sharp, even to this guy who doesn't care for CUVs/SUVs.

    It almost seems as if this is a 'baby Grand Cherokee' IT should have been called Cherokee, while the current Cherokee should have been... something else?

    So, this clarifies the sizes doubts and the fear of overlaps between New Compass and Cherokee. :)

    One doubt: Are the "new Compass" and the coming "Wagoneer" one and the same? Or is a Wagoneer an additional offering?

    If the answer to the first question is YES, is the definitive Jeep Line-Up going to be:

    Renegade, Wagoneer, Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Grand Wagoneer, Wrangler (all variants), Wrangler Pickup?

    Plus, perhaps, a sub-Renegade for emerging markets only?

    The more I look at this, the more I doubt it to be legit. Only time will tell, however.
    [in the rear 3/4 view, the tail-lights are off angle a bit; in the front 3/4 view, lighting-wise & perspective wise]

    I don't think the replacement Compass will be called Wagoneer. It seems like SM is positioning the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer to be premium SUVs (maybe even full size like Tahoe/Suburban). No one seems to know much publicly though.

    One school of thought is that Grand Cherokee name goes away and is replaced with Wagoneer, leaving the Grand Wagoneer as the big brother. This would separate Grand Cherokee from Compass. This would not connect Cherokee and Grand Cherokee.

    But, it is a theory only.

    I was thinking what would set the Wagoneer apart is engine layout.

    A
    Renegade
    Compass
    Cherokee
    Wagoneer - GUS
    Grand Cherokee
    Grand Wagoneer

    Wrangler HT
    Wrangler
    Wrangler 4
    Wrangler Pickup

    Quite a lineup

    I could see that, Wagoneer as similar or slightly larger Cherokee with longitudinal layout. I can't imagine the Grand Cherokee name going away, too much good branding in it. Can't think of any negative stigma, except maybe not enough solid axles. ;)

    One thing that always bothered me was the Cherokee's (KL) rear bumper, or at least a smoother curve. The damn thing looks like it was chopped off with a cleaver.

    Compass looks much better.
