Jeep designed the Compass as a global model. To that end, it will be assembled in China, India, Mexico, and Brazil, and it will be sold in over a hundred markets around the planet. Additional information such as when we’ll see it in U.S. showrooms and how much it will cost will be published closer to its official launch date.
Later this year a Jeep pickup is on the way, another sign FCA will be pushing the brand hard. Having seen the new Compass, I’d say they are pushing in the right direction.
Four trim levels will be available in Canada, including Sport, North, Limited and the aforementioned Trailhawk. A Uconnect 5.0 infotainment system is standard, while the optional Uconnect 8.4 and 8.4 NAV integrate Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other available features include a panoramic sunroof and a power tailgate.
The 2017 Jeep Compass will be built in four countries—Mexico, Brazil, China and India—for sale around the world. The new compact SUV should hit Canadian showrooms in a few months.
