Detroit Brings The New Jeep Grand Cherokee, The 2011 Model

By Carltone Belaware

Jeep has officially launched the revised 2011 Compass visual Concept after it made its formal debut today at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. As many expected, the new Compass sports styling will create a lot of popularity for the model, being inspire from the Trail Model of the Grand Cherokee. Images of the car say most of what needs to be said about the design of this diamond : futuristic, but also aggresive and powerful.

Even at first glance, it’s clear that the 2011 Compass gained styling cues from the Jeep Grand Cherokee, particularly in the headlights and signature Jeep seven slat grille. The hood has also been reinvented, rounding out a completely new front-end, especially for the fans of a futuristic design.

Although on the side of the car there are no changes – as to be expected from a mid-cycle refresh – the rear of the vehicle has been “victim” of some small changes. The tail lamps are now much cleaner in their design and convey a more premium feel than the previous model. Likewise, the bumper design is much more in line with the premium style of the big brother Grand Cherokee, clearing the problem with the toy-like display of the 2010 Compass’.

To go along with the major exterior styling tweaks, Jeep has also improved the Compass’ interior for 2011, including soft-touch materials, curved and streight lines in a very interesting mix, offering more space and, if you would like to hear my oppinion, creating a bit more space for the driver. The command lines are similar to the previous model, this kind of changes were not necessary.

The 2011 Compass is available with Jeep’s Freedom Drive II all-wheel drive system, allowing for the first Compass ever to come from the factory with a ‘Trail Rated’ designation. Compass models equipped with the Freedom Drive II system borrow some suspension components from the larger Grand Cherokee, and also ride an inch higher than standard models.

Power for the base-model Compass is supplied by a 158 horsepower 2.0L engine. Up-level models receive Chrysler’s 172 horsepower 2.4L engine, with buyers of either engine able to choose between a five-speed manual or CVT gearbox. Jeep says the 2011 Compass achieves the best fuel economy of any 44 in the class, delivering up to 28mpg.

Official pricing has yet to be announced for the 2011 Compass, but its improvements are expected to come at a premium. Whereas the current model lists from $15,365, the 2011 model is expected to carry a base MSRP of $19,995. Adding all-wheel drive will increase that bottom line to $21,695.
