Jeep continues to be one of the fastest-growing new car brands in the United States, capitalizing on low fuel prices and continued demand for SUV and crossover type vehicles.
But that's not to say that Jeep is stuck in the past. Its lineup is (mostly) modern and is set to get even better next year when the dated Compass and Patriot are combined into one, all-new model. Oh, and let's not forget that the brand's de facto flagship—its venerable Wrangler—is up for a total redesign that could bring with it extensive aluminum body panels, a turbodiesel engine, and many more surprises.
For 2017, there's not nearly as much to report. But let's have a look at what you'll find at your local Jeep showroom if you're in the market for a new SUV or crossover.
