Jeep hints at global portfolio expansion and explores all-new territory with the world premiere of two compact SUV concepts - the Jeep Patriot and Jeep Compass Rallye.
The Jeep Patriot and Jeep Compass Rallye concepts are compact Jeep 4x4s that would deliver fun, freedom, utility, capability, as well as the potential for exceptional fuel economy and interior flexibility - all at a great value.
The two concepts make their world premiere at the Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA) on September 12.
The Jeep Patriot concept offers a modern interpretation of classic Jeep styling: rugged, strong and capable.
Jeep says it would appeal to young buyers looking to join the brand in a genuine Jeep vehicle that would deliver fun and freedom at a great value.
The Jeep Patriot not only looks like a Jeep, but all-new Jeep off-road technology would ensure Patriot could be a Jeep Trail-Rated 4x4, making it among the most capable in its class.

The sporty Jeep Compass concept - due at Frankfurt
The Jeep Compass Rallye concept broadens the global appeal of the Jeep brand.
It's a contemporary styled Jeep concept that targets new buyers who might not have previously considered the brand.
Compact and nimble, and smaller than the usual Jeep products, the Jeep Compass Rallye concept is the right size for world markets and is designed to offer a fun-to-drive experience, performance and fuel economy unexpected in the highly competitive compact SUV segment.
