It is the sister car to the Caliber and is built on the same platform as it too, but with Jeep design. It looks OK, just not a Jeep person I guess.
Unless you’re looking at the SRT-4, the 2.0L and 2.4L Caliber will only be available in a CVT. They may provide a manual transmission option but at this time we haven’t received any information regarding this offering.sonicman said:yeah and unlike the caliber, supposedly get the 2.4 engine w/ manual at launch =)
I believe he's talking about the Jeep Compass. So far we can't confirm or deny anything regarding this model but anything is possible. Officially it is still considered Concept vehicle.Xordok said:Sonic.. Sorry to disapoint you (like I was when I had the bad news...).. But the Manual transmission is only available in 1.8l... The 2.0l and 2.4l are available with the CVT..
My mistake,Steve Desjardins said:The compass is still considered a concept even though I have brouchures and its on dealer connect locate options?
The reaction is half and half, most of the jeep faithful dismiss the vehicle because it’s not a true off-roading vehicle. (The reality is that 95% of jeeps never see off-roading) Others are convinced that the Compass will dilute the Jeep heritage, pretty standard fair for any new vehicle.Xtreme Thunder said:Just wonder how Jeep owners will react when the Compass joints their family. It is not your average looking Jeep mind you.
