Jeep Compass launches in Australia in December


With the first Jeep Compass largely forgettable, the company is hoping that the launch of the 2018 Jeep Compass will win back buyers, and has today announced that Australian Jeep customers will take deliveries in December of this year.

The Compass will come in four different trim levels: Sport, Longitude, Limited and Trailhawk. Both the Sport and Longitude will come as standard with the 2.4-litre “Tigershark” petrol four-cylinder, while the Limited has the option of both the 2.4-litre petrol and a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel. The Trailhawk will only come in diesel configuration.
