Jeep brand perception turnaround to start with all-new Compass compact SUV
7 Feb 2018
2018 is shaping up to be arguably the biggest year in Jeep Australia’s history, with a raft of new models set to arrive including the monstrous Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, the facelifted Cherokee, refreshed Renegade and all-new Wrangler.
Kicking off the model onslaught is the all-new, second-generation Compass compact SUV, which will be the first all-new Jeep launched Down Under since 2015.
The new Compass will also represent the first vehicle produced in Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ (FCA) new manufacturing facility in Ranjangaon, India, that will also produce Renegades for the Indian market with the potential to build additional models down the line.
For Jeep, the Compass is a crucial vehicle that can potentially turn around the fortunes of a brand plagued by perception problems and declining sales.
Can its new compact SUV get Jeep’s 2018 off to the right start?
