2011 Detroit Auto Show: 2011 Jeep Compass Live Photos

Follow Viknesh

Earning the nickname of Grand Cherokee’s little brother, for good reason, the new 2011 Jeep Compass comes with new styling and several new standard features to better position itself in the fuel-efficient crossover segment.  

While the previous model looked downright frumpy, the new 2011 Jeep Compass has a look that exudes toughness and quality. Combined with a retuned suspension with stiffer springs, damping, and rear anti-roll bar for a more controlled highway ride, the latest Compass is sure to be a hit.

The vehicle is on sale now so head over to our sister site TheCarConnection for the full run down.

  1. What an impressive update! Jeep is serious about capturing the global compact SUV market and the Compass/Patriot twins prove that clearly.
    Jeep has cleverly made a controversial design into a really appealing offering in one swoop, amazing transformation by any measure.
    Jeep continues to work on the CVT tranny and the AWD system along with the suspension to improve and deliver what was a weakness into an acceptable system for most buyers in this class. The interior has been addressed significantly to the point where many would call it class leading in style, ergonomics and quality.
    There is no doubt that rather than wait for the Fiat influenced next generation, Jeep engineers have proven that not only can they make the worlds best SUV in the Grand Cherokee, but given a few sheckles, they can do magic in any vehicle in their lineup. FANTASTIC!

  2. It looks great inside and out. The only problem is that crappy Nissan CVT auto transmission. Not only does that transmission rob power it has an odd feeling about it and requires some getting used to. I would take a 4-speed entry level auto trans., over the CVT any day.
