I will bet you a large portion of the men buying a Compass were married and the wife had some or a lot of influence on the decision. Unless the results are single men only I think you would find without the wife having input the Compass % would be lower and Patriot % higher for men. JMHO.

Understand me I am not anti women here. I don't really care one way or the other what other people buy. I just believe the Compass has a greater appeal to females than males in general and if no influence other than personal preference was involved I think females would gravitate towards the Compass and males to the Patriot.

I am surprised at the 61% overall Jeep owner stat being men to be honest. I see just about as many women as men driving Jeeps in general. I see TONS of women in Liberty's and a lot in the Wranglers and older Cherokees. I bet the new Cherokee will be very popular with females too( men as well ).

Re: What's the difference?

I always find the studies interesting on who buys what, who buys what color, etc. The differences are rarely very large with the exception of VERY high end cars. It is more a case of a small percentage being "perceived" to be much greater percentage than in reality.

Re: What's the difference?

Doesn't surprise me. My sister has been driving the same Liberty for almost 9 years now and is still scared to shift into 4WD sometimes.

There are people out here that are like that. Jeeps/Trucks/SUVs are intimidating to some women. That was the reason for the change to electronic 4WD, etc. Men? Not so much... they are out there though... in VERY large numbers.

Trust me, automakers would LOVE to save cash and use a manual 4WD system. Problem is, nobody would buy them... too scared to use them.

Agreed. I don't see too many chicks in the Compass, but the Patriot is pretty popular around here... To be fair, I don't see that many Compass at all, but most seem driven by what sure appears to be males.

I'd suspect this is a fairly wide geographical area average.
Here, closer to their presumably intended home range, the Patriot just seems to make the Compass so rare that you notice the Compass--as being rare.
But then the local females seem to like the Wranglers more than either one.

Plus people didn't like having to stop, get out, and squat/kneel to mess with the front hub locks when they were in a spot that was messy enough to need 4WD.

Now that's going too far and even *I* would hate doing that.

Shift-On-The-Fly was perfect. Too bad those days are gone too.
