  1. i know its quite nice at offroading but before u pick this over a crv, u must consider that this car only got 2 star out of 5 in the euroncap safety test

  2. jeep will put the trail rated badge on anything! whats next, jeep gona rebadge the caravan and make that trail rated to. they could call it the humpty van, by jeep.

    I like Pentastar that on a Liberty. The Powertech 4L V-6 is underpowered and its fuel economy is worse than Chrysler 300/ Dodge Charger V8 with AWD. The Liberty will be all new in ’13 from what I hear, and will have Fiat’s design. We’ll see what they’ve got on the pipeline.

  4. They’re both on the same platform (mainly through the Powertrain). Its main difference is in its styling. The Compass’ front and grille looks similar to the Grand Cherokee. The Patriot has a boxier shape, and Jeep says that its front looks like a Wrangler (I personally don’t see it as such). Pricewise, Patriot tend to cost a little less.

  5. Its main difference is its front facf facia; it looks similar to that of the Grand Cherokee. The Patriot’s similar facia is close to the Wrangler. Also, the Patriot is better suited for off-roading than the Compass; 2011 is the first time it gave the Jeep Trail rated badge. Where its the same are the powertrains.

  6. Don’t you think that now they must update the rear as well? The front look superb and sharp ,but the rear still looks boring. I guess they had the budget to only update the front or rather the budget to update the front of Cherokee and than copy paste it to a compass.
