Jeep Compass/Patriot was spotted by spies during the test-drive in the United States. The car is supposed to premier this March during the auto exhibition in New York.
The company is now finishing the last strokes on the automobile. The Compact SUV will replace both Jeep models, Patriot and Compass. Now the version is called “551” but it will receive one of the two names and will be riding on the lengthened configuration of the platform that located on the Renegade.
The car spy photos Jeep Compass/Patriot 2017 represent a manufacturing prototype with a little camouflage and good ground clearance that will provide some powerful off-road skills. The prototype looks less lumpy than the Patriot and seems to have more similar features as the Compass. Therefore, it won’t be a surprise if the company decides to name the car Compass.
In 2017, Fiat can get its own model of the Jeep compact SUV and it is rumored to have a name of “500XL”. Compact crossovers are usually produced with drive of front wheel as a standard and an additional system of the AWD as an option. The motor line will be taken from the Renegade along with the automatic transmission for nine-speed.
The new version will be presented to the public in March so perhaps the company will demonstrate the crossover next month online.
