The brand new 2018 Jeep Compass will certainly land in Australia in the 4th quarter of this year and also, while we do not have precise rates as well as spec information yet, we did handle to figure out some essential neighborhood details throughout today's worldwide initial drive in the USA.
A manual transmission is not likely to be supplied in Australia, despite the fact that one is offered, greatly since it comprises around just 5 percent of sales in the section in your area.

"We're additionally eager to see exactly what kind of function the Trailhawk design enters this group, and also this Compass is quite at the lead of the Jeep rebirth for the brand name in Australia."
CarAdvice comprehends Australia will absolutely obtain the 2.4-litre fuel four-cylinder engine as well as the 2.0-litre diesel four-cylinder. Even more, there is no 2.0-litre gasoline engine presently verified for Australia.
