FIAT Chrysler Automobiles has unveiled the Jeep Compass.

A stretched version of a Fiat 500X and Jeep Renegade, the all-new Jeep Compass replaces both the Compass and Patriot nameplates.

The Patriot badge is expected to be removed from the Jeep line-up – for now – with Jeep electing to retain the Compass badge.

“The all-new Jeep Compass expands the brand’s global reach with an unmatched combination of attributes that includes legendary and best-in-class 4x4 off-road capability, advanced fuel-efficient powertrains, premium and authentic Jeep design, superior on-road driving dynamics, open-air freedom, and a host of safety and advanced technology offerings.”

The covers were taken off the compact soft-roader to help celebrate the start of production at FCA Jeep’s assembly plant in Goiana, Pernambuco, Brazil.

Further information will officially be revealed when the Compass makes its North American debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.

The Jeep Compass will be available in North America in the first quarter of 2017, so expect a late 2017 local launch.
