Jeep Compass And Patriot Replacement Delayed Until 2014

February 3, 2012

According to Automotive News Europe, the SUV planned to replace both the Jeep Compass and Patriot, has been delayed until 2014.

Originally intended to go into production in 2013, the code-named B-SUV has been delayed so that Fiat can expedite engineering on its European products, like the Sedici compact. The delay also means a one-billion-Euro expansion of Fiat's Mirafiori plant will be pushed back to late 2013. The delays come after Fiat performed a spending review regarding future investments.

The B-SUV is reported to be smaller than both the current Jeep Compass and Patriot, and will be sold in both the United States and in Europe, along with other markets.

We'll continue to bring you news as more details trickle out regarding the B-SUV, until then make sure to read our latest reviews of the 2012 Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot.
