2018 Jeep Compass

Looking pretty good.
It is based on the same platform as the Fiat 500X/Jeep Renegade, but is obviously a bit larger and more upscale.
I think this has the potential to be a huge seller for Fiat/Chrysler.
As they have been pushing the Jeep brand lately. And everywhere.

It also seems ( So far)  they will keep the "Compass" name for the new car.

Based on the styling cues we can see, Compass is probably the correct name choice. Liberty and Patriot monikers probably aren't appropriate for Italian-based vehicles anyway.

This will be very popular, especially for those who want a small Jeep but think the Renegade is too "cute ute."Too bad about that side rear window treatment - just like every single other compact crossover with the upward curving belt line.

Will it need an engine replacement after 36k miles?

Aside from it looking like a Nissan Rogue clone, exactly which Jeep model will the new Compass poach sales from? The slightly smaller Renegade, or the slightly larger Cherokee? This may be a classic case of "unintended consequences".

Grand Cherokee
Wranger Truck
Grand Wagoner

Jeep will be the most robust they have ever been!

The new cherokee is not a big car by any means. So how much smaller could this new compass be? Ans i thought the compass/patriot experiment was a failure - so why would they create two flavors of the same car AGAIN now with the new compass/renegade?

Are you sure it is not like the Jeep Grand Cherokee? Same manufacturer. Right?
