    GOOD NEWS- Jeep has done a masterful job of improving the looks and quality of the Compass and Patriot
    BAD NEWS- The Nissan sourced CVT is not worthy of these two products, that hurts.
    MORE GOOD NEWS- By puting this investment in these twins it indicates a strong future for them.
    I do believe, as the Caliber goes away, that it leaves more latitude to distinguish these two from each other as very different approaches, or , the Compass my become the smaller entry level Jeep being planned. In any case Jeep has plans for these two smaller Jeep for sure. The Compass looks great by the way!

    WOW! Huge improvement on the front end. Doesn't look cheap anymore.

    Looks OK, but why does Jeep continue to sale both the Compass and Patriot. They are basically the same with some styling differences. I think the Patriot is the better of the two and more Jeep like.
