The next-generation Jeep Compass made its global debut yesterday in Brazil as FCA celebrated the start of production at a new assembly plant in Goiana, Pernambuco.
More than 100 countries around the world will receive this refreshed compact SUV, which offers no fewer than 17 powertrain options.
The company is also promising legendary and best-in-class 4x4 off-road capability, premium and authentic Jeep design (largely influenced by the Cherokee and Renegade), superior on-road driving dynamics, open-air freedom, and a host of safety and advanced technology offerings.
While calling it “the most capable compact SUV ever” might be a stretch, we are very much looking forward to our first test drive.
The new Jeep Compass will have its North American premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November before going on sale in Canada and the U.S. during the first quarter of 2017.
