    According to Allpar sources, Jeep is doing quite well in the U.S. small and compact crossover markets, holding its own even against GM and Toyota in retail sales — that is, sales to individuals, excluding fleet buyers.

    Jeep has issued its third recall for the new Jeep Compass, affecting 27,000 cars in the US and an unspecified number elsewhere.

    The new 2017-18 Jeep Compass is a very nice package, with one big flaw: Jeep changed the design after its release, so the gauges stay daylight-bright at night — and aren’t affected by the dimmer switch. It turns out that’s against the law, because bright gauges hurt the driver’s night vision...

    The new Compass has been on sale long enough now for Jeep to guess at the popularity of each trim level. What do they think will sell? According to dealer materials recently leaked to Allpar by oh2o, the most popular Compass will be the Latitude, which adds many popular features to the base...

    In the United States, there are two major safety ratings: IIHS, the insurance industry’s standard, and NHTSA, the government standard. In Europe, though, NCAP tests, conducted by an independent group, dominate. The 2017 NCAP tests place a greater margin on active safety features which prevent...

  15. Compacts: Renegade, Patriot, Compass, Caliber
    Ok, I assume I'm NOT going to be the only one thinking about this. So I figure thoughts and discussion will be helpful for many people. Anyway, I'm thinking about both, mostly because of the incentives currently on the Cherokee. I'm kind of flipping back and forth: Compass: AndroidAuto, the...

    Now that Jeep has released Compass pricing, the natural question is — what about the options? On the Sport, going with an automatic (a six-speed Aisin) adds $1,500 to the price. The cold weather group adds $700-$800, and a compact spare is $245. A Sport Appearance package adds $600, and the...

    Just two weeks ago, Jeep shut down its Compass and Patriot line, and started converting their plant to make Cherokees. Ironically, 2016 turned out to be, by a good margin, the best year ever for the twins — even better than years in which you could add the Dodge Caliber into the mix. The...

    Mike Manley has officially launched the American version of the Jeep Compass in Los Angeles, and along the way clarified some questions about the new crossover. First, it does appear to be a 2017 Jeep Compass, somewhat confusing given that there was already a 2017 Jeep Compass — the original...
