FCA has launched the new 2017 Jeep Compass Launched in Brazil for buyers in Brazil and it comes with stylish looks designed to keep long running customers happy.
The brand confirmed that the next generation Jeep Compass will be available with 17 different powertrains around the globe. It is designed from the ground up to offer immense off-road capabilities and can withstand even the most demanding road conditions. FCA added that the engineering team has upgraded the vehicle with different safety technology and connectivity features allowing Compass owners to scale new territories without difficulty.
Many of the design features found in the Jeep Compass is inspired by the baby Grand Cherokee. Much to the relief of many, Jeep has removed the boxy look the model is known for but the familiar front grille and headlightshas been retained. The model is designed to fill the gap between the Renegade and the Cherokee.
While Jeep has not officially revealed the powertrains that will be used in the Compass, inside sources confirmed that a 2.0-liter Hurricane turbo four is in development and should be one of the many powertrains set for vehicle. It will be mated to the nine-speed automatic transmission system.
Apart from building the next gen Jeep Compass at the Brazil plant, production of the model will take place in multiple locations including Toluca in Mexico and Guangzhou in China. The brand is gearing up for a grand reveal to show the car the Los Angeles Auto Show scheduled to take place this November.
With the year coming to a close, auto expos are sparse in numbers. Yet, top brands are about to make good use of the remaining shows to showcase their new models and reveal the technical specifications. The Jeep Compass is slated to be launched in the first quarter of 2017 and deliveries should probably commence by the mid of 2017.
Jeep has been tight lipped about the different powertrains options they are going to provide for the Compass. It will vary from one region to another so as to offer buyers enough choices when they go for the model. Similarly, there is no word on how the interiors will look like and the upgrades that are done within. We expect more comfortable seats, smartphone connectivity, better navigation and probably additional sensors as an added safety features. Stay tuned for the Los Angeles show after which we will know a lot about the upcoming Jeep model.
