Jeep has released these images of the all-new Compass which has commenced production in Goiana, Brazil.

Official ‘covers-off’ will be at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.

First-up we must say the styling is a great turnaround from the current dowdy look – the newcomer integrating a handsome and purposeful front-end borrowed from the up-scale Jeep Grand Cherokee with an all-new rear-end which possibly shows some cues to the Renegade in the C-pillars with the shutline for the rear doors extending to the tailgate.

But overall, if you said the all-new Jeep Compass looks like a scaled-down version of the Grand Cherokee you wouldn’t be far off the mark.

We know the all-new Jeep Compass will ride on its version of FCA’s ‘Small Wide 4x4’ platform (i.e. it will be slightly larger than the platform used for the Renegade and Fiat 500X).

Officially, Jeep says that, in total, the all-new Compass will be offered with some 17 different powertrains but we’re betting the local lineup will be exclusively turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol or diesel driving through the new nine-speed automatic transmission and offered in either front-drive or all-wheel-drive.

While North American versions will be produced at the FCA plant in Mexico, expect the Jeep Compass models sold here to come from Brazil (that plant will be producing Compass models for 100 export markets).

The new Compass could also spell the end for the Jeep Patriot in Australia, but Fiat Chrysler Australia has yet to make any announcements.

North American on-sale for the 2017 Jeep Compass is the first quarter of next year and we hear FCA will announce Australian launch details at the LA Show in November.
