2009 Jeep Compass Concept Car

The Jeep Compass (MK) is a compact crossover SUV introduced for the 2007 model year. Jeep made its public debut of the Compass at the 2006 North American International Auto Show in January. The Jeep Compass, along with the Patriot will take over from the Jeep Liberty as Jeep’s entry-level sport utility vehicles, and is one of Jeep’s first crossover SUVs. The Compass has a base price of $15,985 in the United States market. The first Compass was produced on May 30, 2006.

The Compass and Patriot are both based on the DaimlerChrysler/Mitsubishi GS platform. These vehicles are differentiated by their styling and marketing: The Patriot is a traditional 4-door Jeep wagon, while the Compass is intended as a sporty “hot hatch” crossover like the Toyota Matrix. The Dodge Caliber, also based on the GS platform, is a combination of these two segments.

It uses a 172 hp (128 kW) 2.4 L GEMA I4 gasoline engine and will also get a 2.0 litre Volkswagen-designed diesel engine for the European and Australian markets. The 2.0 diesel from Volkswagen is the same as used in the Volkswagen Passat. The car also features an electronically-controlled all wheel drive system with variable torque between speeds of 25 and 65 mph for optimal handling. However, the base model version has only FWD, a first for any Jeep. The Compass will be the first Jeep offered in many years that isn’t badged as “Trail Rated”. This indicates that the Compass has not passed the same testing of off-road ability as other Jeep vehicles in terms of traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation, and water fording. Since the similar Dodge Caliber debuted with an SRT treatment, the Compass is expected to get the SRT treatment, possibly in 2007.
