2017-jeep-compass-w-titlePhotos of the all new Jeep Compass have been released by FCA.  Jeep and Ram chief Mike Manley said they they’ve chosen Compass for the name of this new vehicle that will replace both the Compass and Patriot.  The compass name was chosen because the vehicle will be sold worldwide and the name needed global appeal.

It will be built on a modified version of the Renegade platform, which Fiat Chrysler has named the “Small Wide 4×4” architecture. Chrysler has said that globally there would be 17 different powertrain choices, and that the US will have multiple choices for engines.

Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram vehicles are available at Elmwood CDJR in East Providence, Rhode Island.
