I see nothing good with that. Makes the different models in a makers range lose their "touch".

And let's not forget why the eff the Jeep badge is on the hood. Plus the 7 slotted grille. Enough. If you don't know that's a Jeep then you're a moose testicle.
No need to make them all the same in the front.

Re: new compass = mini grand cherokees?

Personally, I think they should have made the patriot look this way since it sells better anyways and just axe the compass. I kind of wish they waited till the new 2013 small suv from Jeep came out to do this because the compass is a representation of what was wrong with Chrysler and sure they put a different front & rear fasca on it..but it's still the same 2.4 CVT 0-60 in 10 seconds, same interior as 2010, not really competitive car compared to our new grand cherokees.

Moose testicle.. LOL

The Compass could be a viable product if they called it the Patriot and it looked like one, too. I do see more Compass' around here than Patriots, God only knows why..?

Re: new compass = mini grand cherokees?

There's nothing really wrong with the 2010 interior.

Beats the 2007 interior by a long shot.

The Compass came out on sale well before the Patriot, so it had a head start. Once the Patriot launched, the sales numbers started tilting heavily towards the Patriot.

It's a decent handling, if slow, mini-ute, and the 2011 refresh with the 2009 interior rehab went a long way to making it look quite decent.

Still, they won't be around much longer- the roadmaps I've seen indicate a 2012 overhaul, at which point they are likely to go to a Fiat platform.

Keep the same engine and 5 speed manual transmission and that car would be fine by me
