2019 Jeep Cherokee: The Baby Grand

  2019 Jeep Cherokee: The Baby Grand 2019 Jeep Cherokee: The Baby GrandSetting priorities for what needed to change on the Cherokee must have been easy. Its design, with an insect-like squint and dual-light setup, was a point of contention among consumers. So, Jeep switched things up by reverting to a more family-like appearance. After launching the smaller Compass with styling reminiscent of its best-selling flagship, the Grand Cherokee, Jeep tweaked the Cherokee to look like a bigger Compass. Or like a Grand Cherokee twice removed.

Fiat Chrysler Considers Tiny Jeep, but Not for U.S.

  Fiat Chrysler Considers Tiny Jeep, but Not for U.S. The tiny Jeep would likely be based on the Fiat Panda.But don't expect to see a smaller Jeep in the U.S. The Renegade is already about as small as the American market will accept, Jeep believes, probably correctly. The tiny Jeep would be targeted toward Europe and other parts of the world where small cars sell well—perhaps China, which is also getting a big Jeep. It would likely be built in Italy, at FCA's Pomigliano plant alongside the Fiat Panda that is already produced there—yet another reason for them to share a platform.

"If you don’t need a larger vehicle, why haul one around all the time?"

The vehicle that previously wore this badge was a mediocre little thing, a plasticky lump based on the Dodge Caliber. Overall, its most notable attribute was that you could get it for cheap. Other than its name, this new Compass has about as much in common with the old one as a Fiat 500 does with a one-ton Ram truck.

You’ll pay more for the new Compass over the old, of course, but overall, it’s worth the bump.

The all-new Jeep Compass was unveiled for 2017, and it rumbles virtually unchanged into 2018, except for some new features in its available SiriusXM: travel link, traffic information, and Guardian, which includes remote services and assistance.

The Compass comes in front-wheel drive on the entry-level Sport and next-up North. Both can be optioned to 4x4, the only configuration on the Trailhawk and my tester, the Limited.

It’s based on the same platform that underpins the larger Cherokee and smaller Renegade. All Compass models use a 2.4L four-cylinder engine cranking out 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The Sport can be ordered with a six-speed manual. Otherwise, you get a six-speed automatic when you order front-wheel drive, and a nine-speed automatic in four-wheeler models.

Drivers Claim That Waze GPS App Instructed Them To Drive Into A Lake

  Drivers Claim That Waze GPS App Instructed Them To Drive Into A Lake When a salvage team pulled a Jeep from the bottom of a lake Monday, it had been there for more than a week. All the owner did was lend it to friends for a sight-seeing trip in Vermont, who, according to USA Today, said Google’s Waze GPS app instructed them to drive of a boat launch and into Lake Champlain. USA Today reports that the driver and two passengers didn’t realize what was happening until they’d slid onto the frozen lake. All of the Jeep’s passengers got out safely.

Pricing starts at $25,250 for the base Sport, and rises to a high of $35,245 for the Limited. Of course several options are available, and my ride was ordered from the factory with a heavy hand: $7,125 in extras, bringing it to $42,370 before freight and taxes.

That was a bit too hefty a tag for my compact ride, but on the other hand, I also like that more automakers are now allowing buyers to load up smaller vehicles, if that’s their preference. It used to be that if you wanted more features, you had to buy a larger footprint. My loaded-up Compass felt as well-equipped as some Grand Cherokees I’ve driven, but without the bulk that our two-member family doesn’t require. If you don’t need a larger vehicle, why haul one around all the time?

The Compass’ little engine is fine if you’re driving moderately, but it gets wheezy when you ask it for more and run it out. If you want some passing power, especially at highway speeds, you put your foot down and then count a couple of beats while the transmission downshifts and then everything catches up. The nine-speed gets it up into the higher gears as quickly as possible for fuel economy, but at the same time, I thought it shifted more smoothly than a Trailhawk I tested last year. Perhaps a bit of extra trans tuning for the Limited’s more luxo feel?

While Jeep’s middle child SUV – slotting below the Grand Cherokee and above the new Compass – was clever enough to sell nearly 170,000 units just last year, it always struck me as just slightly, well, weird looking. Apparently I wasn’t the only one.

2018 Jeep Compass Limited 4 x 4 . Brian Harper , Driving . Testing the Limited (,895 to start), I was pleased to see a thoughtful, well laid-out cabin with an appropriate measure of modern conveniences.

Also, in keeping with fuel economy and emissions, the engine has a automatic stop-start feature, which shuts it off at idle, such as when you’re sitting at a light. You get a noisy, rough jolt when it starts up again, and if it’s too much, you can disable the system by pressing a button.

Despite its somewhat lacklustre engine performance, the Compass redeems itself with its ride. It’s wonderfully smooth and composed, soaking up bumps and coddling passengers without feeling detached or floaty. The cabin is very quiet, too, which adds to the overall higher-end feeling. Against the official figures of 10.8 L/100 km in the city and 7.8 on the highway, I averaged 10.1 L/100 km in my week with it.

The four-wheel system runs primarily in front-wheel, seamlessly transferring power to the back when necessary. A dial on the console lets you adjust the system to better tackle snow, sand, or mud, and you can lock it into power to both axles when travelling at low speed in the sticky stuff. My tester did fine in some heavy snow, but if you want more of the full Jeep experience, opt for the Trailhawk. It adds a “rock” setting and low range with a 20:1 crawl ratio, and while it isn’t as gnarly as a Wrangler, this trim level is far more off-road capable than you’d expect.

The Compass is a handsome beast that looks a lot like a scaled-down version of a Grand Cherokee. North trims and up include automatic headlamps, roof rails, and fog lamps; while the Limited adds rain-sensing wipers (which, like all moisture-sensitive ones, work great in steadier precipitation, but fizzle in drizzle, and aren’t as effective). My tester was further optioned with a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, at a wallet-draining $1,595.

The interior design is close to that of the larger Cherokee, and it’s as handsome as the outside, with lots of soft-touch materials, contrasting stitching, and curvy styling. However, not all is perfect. There are several controls stuffed into the centre console, with no room left over for storage. There’s a small covered console box and door pockets, but no place up front to casually toss your phone or other items. And while the climate controls are simple and intuitive, they’re set low in the curving centre stack. They can be tough to see and reach, especially if you have the seat set high.

There’s a decent amount of rear-seat legroom, but because the Compass is relatively narrow, three people across the rear bench can be tight. The liftover into the cargo area is low and it’s easy to load, and the rear seats fold flat for extra storage.

Jeep’s designers like to have fun, and as with their other vehicles, there are a few surprises baked into the design. Look in the mirror, and you’ll catch sight of the Loch Ness Monster swimming at the bottom of the rear window. And be sure to check out the foot rest, to the left of the brake. The dot-and-dash design on it is actually Morse code, and it spells out “Rocks Rivers Snow Sand”. (This is what you discover when you have an inquisitive husband who figured there had to be something more to an asymmetrical pattern.)

The Compass features Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment system, one of the best in the industry for ease of use, and on my tester, it was upgraded to an 8.4-inch touchscreen (seven inches is the norm) with navigation.

It could use a bit more grunt to its engine, but overall, I like the Compass. It’s a handsome, nicely sized, smooth-riding machine, with a good-looking and comfortable interior. My tester was too pricey, but shave off some of its more expensive options, and you’ve got something that’s well-equipped without being too big.

Review: 2018 Jeep Compass Limited 4×4 .
Two becomes one – that’s essentially the genesis of the current Jeep Compass compact SUV which remerged all-new about a year ago out of the ashes of the previous gen Compass and the former Jeep Patriot. Lest you think the new Compass is just a reskin of the old – spoiler: it’s not – a little history is in order.Perhaps the best way to delineate between the old Compass / Patriot and the new Compass is to view them along the lines of old North America-centric Chrysler and globally-oriented Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).
