2008 Jeep® Compass Grows Brand in a New Direction
The Jeep® brand continues its expansion into new territory with the 2008 Jeep Compass —a compact sport-utility vehicle (SUV) that delivers fun, freedom, utility, excellent fuel efficiency and Jeep 4x4 capability at a terrific value. With Compass, Jeep continues to grow by offering an affordable, modern-styled SUV designed to reach consumers who may not have previously considered the brand.
Jeep Compass competes in the compact SUV segment, which is expected to grow considerably in the next decade, giving the Jeep brand the opportunity to grow with it. Annual compact SUV volume in the United States for the 2006 calendar year was 520,045 units, up from 387,528 units in 2005. The compact SUV segment is expected to continue growing to more than 745,000 units by 2017.
Compact and nimble, Jeep Compass brings a new sense of adventure to the compact SUV market, combining the packaging and functionality of an SUV with the performance, handling, fuel economy and price of a compact car or small pickup. Compass and its stablemate Patriot are the Jeep brand's first front-wheel-drive-based products with fully independent suspensions for comfortable on-road ride and handling and fun-to-drive characteristics.
