In case you thought that the minty fresh, somewhat urbane Compass wouldn’t live up to the Jeep brand’s pedigree of taking on the rough with aplomb, here are the first set of images that prove otherwise. Brazilian publication Autos Segredos recently got behind the wheel of one to test its off-road capabilities on a track prepared by Jeep, and came away pretty impressed. The Longitude and Trailhawk versions of the Compass are equipped with the 4 × 4 Jeep Active Drive Low system, accompanied by the Selec-Terrain system with five modes – Snow, Sand, Mud, Rock and Auto – for varied topographical conditions that you subject your Compass to.

The Trailhawk version has more off-road potency, courtesy a suspension that’s 2 cm higher than standard, special tires for mixed use, and extra plates protection under the body. Also, that matte black sticker on the centre of the hood is not there for aesthetic reasons.  It’s there to eliminate glares for the driver, cutting unwanted reflections from sunlight or other external light sources. The Trail Rated 4 × 4 seal on the Trailhawk’s flanks attribute to the vehicle having met Jeep’s Trail Rated criteria of having adequate  ground clearance, manoeuvrability, water wading capabilities (in this case up to 48 cm ) and traction.

The Compass put to the test is powered by Fiat’s 2.0-litre Multijet II diesel engine. Noteworthy features on the Compass (Trailhawk) include Xenon headlights with signature LED daytime lights, dual zone automatic climate control, an 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat, black leather seats with red contrast stitching, key-less entry, engine start-stop button, automatic headlamps/wipers, exterior mirrors with electric folding function, rear parking sensors, a premium audio system with nine speakers, FCA’s 8.4-inch touchscreen equipped infotainment system with USB and Bluetooth connectivity, and a tire pressure monitoring system.

Just yesterday, we showed you a set of grainy renderings from the JL Wrangler Forums. Today, we have more detailed renderings that show much greater detail of the vehicles. While these are highly detailed renderings, and not actual photographs, they give us our best look yet at the next-generation Wrangler.

In these shots, we can see more detail on the front lighting and that, at least on the higher trim levels, the JL will have not only LED strip running lights and turn signals but an LED “halo” in the headlights. At least in these renderings, the bumper-mounted fog lights appear to still be incandescent, but there’s a good chance the top-trim production models will have all-LED exterior lighting.
