New 2017 Jeep Compass Video Highlights Interior Design

A new video from Jeep focuses on the 2017 Jeep Compass and shows how it is designed from the ground up to give drivers a premium driving experience.

The new video put up on Jeep’s YouTube page takes a look at how something like the 2017 Compass is designed.  It features an interview with the head of Advanced Color and Materials at the FCA Product Design Office.  She highlights the materials used in the design of the 2017 Compass and how the team put together an interior that has a premium look and feel to it and is also comfortable.

For how much talk in the creation of vehicles is focused on the exterior design or the engine and the raw horsepower it can achieve, it is nice to see how engineers at FCA work with materials to help the driver with their driving experience.  Watch the video here:

Could The Jeep Wrangler Pickup Look Like This?

One of the most anticipated vehicles is the Jeep Wrangler pickup.  It is one of the most demanded vehicles from Jeep drivers and many are waiting for the reveal.  Until then, it is time to speculate.  On the JL Wrangler Forums, fans have put together their vision for how the Wrangler Pickup will look.

The really well made artist rendering is of a two door Jeep Wrangler Pickup.  It looks like the artist based the design on a Rubicon.  The design comes from what is currently known about the Wrangler Pickup’s look.  It will be a boxy Jeep look, straying away from the Cherokee’s, Renegade’s, and other newer Jeeps updated looks.  This will be a big plus for Wrangler fans as their preference for Jeep looks is the classic boxy look the Wrangler still holds to.

The other facts known about the Wrangler Pickup is that it will have the Jeep’s seven-slot grille and the headlamps will be round.  Again, those hints point at a traditional Wrangler look.  The artist seems to agree as the concept art, while looking fancy, looks like the back of a Wrangler was replaced with a pickup bed.

Is Jeep Being Spun-Off From FCA?

In the recent years, Jeep has been leading the sales for the Chrysler family.  It is one of the most popular brands in America and is starting to really catch on globally.  Jeep has been expanding into various different countries and is becoming a global phenom.  Does that mean it is time to start thinking of Jeep being its own brand?

The Detroit Free Press spoke with Fiat-Chrysler’s chief Sergio Marchionne and asked if he was considering making Jeep and Ram trucks their own brand?  The response was “Yes.”

Would spinning Jeep and Ram trucks off into their brand really change things?  Not really.  Marchionne did the same thing with Ferrari and it turned out fine for everyone.  Jeep and Ram trucks getting their own brand would make a splashy news headline, but ultimately wouldn’t impact either brands.  It may just be Marchionne wanting to keep the raising trend for both brands up by doing what he can to make sure Jeep and Ram are consistently news-worthy.  In the end, Jeep and Ram will continue to produce quality machines no matter what brand they are operating under.
