Jeep decides to take an old name and plasters it on a new model, will this lead to success for the new model or will it cause issues for problems that are unforeseen. Only time, sales, and customer reviews can reveal this aspect for the company, for better or for worse.
- The Jeep Compass recently underwent a complete overhaul, updating its styling and technology.
- Jeep designed the Compass in part to emulated the trademark look of the Grand Cherokee while being competitive in markets that favor smaller cars.
- Although the car is smartly engineered and off-ready, the lack of larger engine choices leave something to be desired.
“The Compass’s only engine choice leaves it slow to accelerate, and the nine-speed automatic transmission that pairs with the available all-wheel-drive system only exacerbates the problem.”
