a history of Compass goes back to 2001... In 2001 Compass was first introduced as a concept, but now it just may go on sale.. It will go on sale in 2007 and will be a direct rival to cars like: Toyota RAV4, Land Rover Freelander, Honda CR-V.. <p>Main topic about this car will be it's price. In US it will cost less than $20,000<p><IMG SRC="http://www.autoreview.ru/new_site/news/2005/03/31_7/800_1.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://www.autoreview.ru/new_site/news/2005/03/31_7/800_2.jpg" BORDER="0">

I wonder how much will change with 2 more doors(hopefully they put 2 more doors on it, if they want it to compete with those other suv's)

All those SUV's are 4 doors, and this one is 2 doors.. will it really be a rival for them?

I was really hoping this would make production. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> When it is said that this will go on sale in 2007, does that mean fall 06 or early 07? I wonder how much the actual vehicle will look like this.

I'd heard they changed the name to "Scout." Anyone heard anything more?

I always like this concept too. Id like to see how the production version translates. Any word on the Gladiator making it out the door?

The Compass (or Scout) will make a nice entry point in to Jeep Vehicles. With the Liberty to Nitro conversion I cant help but wonder what a Dodge version would look like......... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Autoweek reported that the Dodge Caliber, PT Cruiser, and Jeep Compass will share a platform.

Here's an article from today's Autocar that claims to confirm the green light for production of the compass:<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote &raquo;</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote"><u>Jeep to Introduce Fifth Model Line</u><p>Jeep is pressing ahead with a new entry level vehicle to slot in below the Wrangler. Due in 2007, the new five-seater has been conceived to take on the Toyota RAV4 and Land Rover Freelander, and is inspired by Jeep's 2001 Compass concept, from which it should take its name.<p>The new crossover, thought to be a sister car to the forthcoming Dodge Caliber, marks a big departure for Jeep by placing more emphasis more on versatility than off-road ability. "In the past all Jeeps were engineered to drive the Rubicon trail. That won't be the case in the future", a senior Jeep official told Autocar at last week's New York Motor Show. "We've got products in the pipeline that will reflect a different set of values".<p>The new Jeep is said to be styled along the lines of a high-roof estate car, and it's projected to have a price of around 20,000. Its introduction will boost the number of model lines at Jeep from three to five.<p><u>A sixth model, based on the company's Gladiator pick-up shown at January's Detroit Motor Show, is also rumoured to be in the works</u>.</TD></TR></TABLE>
