The brand new 2018 Jeep Compass will certainly land in Australia in the 4th quarter of this year as well as, while we do not have specific prices and also spec information yet, we did take care of to learn some vital neighborhood details throughout today's global very first drive in the USA.
" If we do choose to bring a FWD version in, it can have either the 2.4-litre or 2.0-litre fuel engine, as both are readily available," Butler stated.

We did some standard computations on the United States prices of the automobiles we evaluated, as well as we believe Jeep Australia could obtain the Trailhawk to dealerships around the 45-grand mark-- which goes over for a car that is an authentic off-roader in a sea of soft roadway alternatives.
There ought to go to the very least another design quality compared to is presently offered in the Compass array that is to be changed with the 2017 array consisting of: Latitude FWD, Latitude 4WD, Limited 4WD as well as Trailhawk 4WD.
