This looks like a powertrain mule. The grille is finished, but the lights are not.

Nobody should jump to conclusions about styling.

Interesting. The same platform as the 500L.

Those appear to be Michigan plates...

One can almost make out the 7slot grille. Yep, probably it. Correct platform/mule. This is theoretically replacing the Patriot in the lineup (if one looks at pricing pecking order). I'm assuming this will be launched BEFORE the Compass replacement now.
In one of the pics the seven slot grille is very clear.

Or...jumping to conclusion...the lights may be exactly like the bug eyed rendering shown in the other thread. ;)
There does appear to be a seven slot grill behind the cladding.

Time of course, will tell.
Platform AND Architecture could be a minor departure with reliance again upon electronic traction controls, as the new Jeep mantra.

Norm:

Those are the standard 500L lights. Just like the Dart and KL mules used the Giulietta's lights.

Was my humor missed?
I suppose I should have linked the rendering from the other post. ;)

I think it's a powertrain mule. Wasn't the B Jeep's development supposed to be done in India?
Engineering yes,

Powertrain and dynamics development? Probably not.

I had been told that the B Jeeps were running around on cut up 500L's. Aparently the body is just like the Dart and 200 and KL mules. Dont trust what you see :)

Ok maybe its just the angle of the photo but the passenger side light is definitely a MiTo but the drivers side looks different like a standard 500 maybe?

Weren't Patriot/Compass supposed to be replaced by one Crossover?

I'll jump to a conclusion. The upright grille makes me think it will trend toward boxiness. Haven't they said it will favor the Wrangler?
That is the rumor yes.
