Jeep confirms pickup; new SUV to be Patriot or Compass
Jeep is making moves to continue its global expansion and sales records in the coming years, with the introduction of a compact SUV this year and a long-awaited pickup likely in 2018.
Jeep’s global chief, Mike Manley, said Monday the brand expects to set a global sales record — its fifth consecutive — this year, as it continues to expand production of Jeeps in key international markets.
Helping bolster the brand’s momentum will be the introduction of an all-new compact SUV at the New York International Auto Show in March. The new compact SUV will replace both the current Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot models. Manley said the new vehicle will use one of the names of the outgoing models.
