This is a sketch of the Jeep® Compass concept vehicle, which made its world debut at the Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA) on Sept. 12, 2005. The Jeep Compass concept broadens the global appeal of the Jeep brand. It’s a contemporary styled Jeep concept that targets new buyers who might not have previously considered the brand. Compact and nimble, Jeep Compass concept is the right size for world markets and is designed to offer a fun-to-drive experience, performance and fuel economy unexpected in the highly competitive compact SUV segment. The Compass made it to production in 2006, to the dismay of Jeep loyalists who for the most part affirm that it dilutes the brand.
