The Jeep Compass is a four-door compact crossover SUV proposed for the 2007 model year and is in its second generation. The prime generation Compass and Patriot, its rebadged variant, were amid Jeep's first crossover SUVs. The second-generation Compass launched in September 2016 in Brazil and at the Los Angeles International Auto Show in November 2016, sharing a revised platform with the Renegade.
In 2002 a concept car with the same name Jeep Compass was unveiled in Detroit at the North American International Auto Show, four years before the main production, with a two-door body, all-wheel drive, and a 3.7-liter V6 engine.
The Compass was not equipped with the 3.7 L Power-Tech V6 motor from the Jeep Liberty, though the production line of Compass held the concept car's styling and some of its traits. Another difference between the concept and the production model Compass is that the production model had four doors instead of two doors.
