Compass may show in Geneva before NYC

by David Zatz on

The worldwide debut of the next Jeep Compass — which officially is still referred to as the “Jeep C segment SUV” — will be revealed in Geneva in early March, before it appears at the New York Auto Show, according to a recent release from FCA.

It is unlikely that Jeep will unveil its crossover in both places at once, since that would mean a rare public-days unveiling. In any case, this model is more likely to be a hot item in Europe than the US.

Most observers believe that the next Compass, whatever it’s called, will use the same basics as the Jeep Renegade, and that will likely extend to the engine and transmission choices, which are much more varied outside of North America.

Reliable source oh2o wrote that production of the current Compass and Patriot would stop at the end of the year; conceivably, Jeep could end the Compass earlier and keep the Patriot going. If FCA chose to make the Compass on the same line as the Renegade and export it from Italy to the US, the delay would likely be necessary: the company would need time to get a its shiploads of cars across the ocean to the Americas.
