Many new things are expected from Chrysler in upcoming years. One of them is a new SUV, which should come as a successor of Compass.

This will be a completely new model, with plenty of improvements in all aspects. New model will ride on new Fiat’s platform, which will bring many benefits such as weight reduction, more efficient engines etc. New model will also feature completely new look, which will be very attractive and follow the manner of latest Jeep models.

The 2018 Jeep Compass is coming completely redesigned. We will see plenty of big changes on this new model. Compared to original, new one should come with improvements in all aspects. It will ride on new platform. It is already well-known Small Wide 4×4 platform from Fiat, which company already uses for Renegade. For this occasion, we expect to see a bit extended version of this small platform. So, 2018 Compass should have similar dimensions as current model. However, we expect better use of space, which will provide more room inside. When it comes to styling, exact details are unknown for now. We believe that new model will continue in the same manner as facelifted model, which came inspired by Grand Cherokee. So, completely new 2018 Jeep Compass should borrow many details from new Grand Cherokee. Also, some unique details are expected.
