Here is the new Jeep Compass — and when it’s coming

by David Zatz on

The Jeep Compass was supposed to have been replaced some time ago, but it‘s still in the works; and when it appears, both the Compass and the Patriot are probably going to finally leave production, long after their original sell-by date.

An Allpar reader sent in these photos; he wrote,

I saw three of these in my neighborhood today. They weren’t  happy with me getting the pics …. It had really nice LED Grand Cherokee-style headlights and taillights; I thought it was the new GC, but it was way too small, and had a similar greenhouse DLO. It resembled a Range Rover Evoque. The interior was very nice.

The current Jeep Compass is scheduled to stop production at the end of 2016, according to reliable source oh2o.

It’s possible that the new Compass will be shown at the New York Auto Show, the Northeast ironically being Jeep’s best market. Production of the new Compass would likely start either at the end of the year or early in 2017.
