2016 Jeep Compass – Release Date and Info

2016 Jeep Compass Release Date, MSRP Price, Review, Engine, Specs – As the newest version of the 2016 Jeep Compass is being released, you will be getting a vehicle which offers a generally well equipped offer that comes for a bargain priced. But this small crossover does come with a few backdrops this time as there is not a technologically savvy interior offered nor does it come with a high safety rating. Nevertheless, the added accessories and the provided specs of the car are just enough for it to make it a good choice for this year.

It seems that the Compass has been sadly and gradually falling behind the competition as it has been slowly but surely shifted down the bench line and substituted but other vehicles to come. This has been going on for a while until the makers finally came to realize that the car needed to be seriously rearranged or thrown away all together. The revamp does not come suddenly as needed but good things are happening with the 2016 as it manages to revive the brand a bit. The models that are going to try and prevent to achieve its success include the Hyundai Tuscon, Nissan Juke, Mitsubishi Outlander and Subaru Crosstrek models.

The Compass looks like a slimmed down Cherokee, as the car has lost some weight in all the right places and gained a much more comfortable interior. But we are not too happy about the technologically impaired package which needs to be updated for the future. But we love the price on the other hand. Check out all the specs and offered news about the newest Compass in this review and study the exclusively released pictures.

The new 2016 Jeep Compass enters into its 10th generation with a somewhat revised exterior look. Everyone is calling it a mini-Cherokee look as the car is much similar to this vehicle and is actually the thing which manages to revive it after years of bland and awkward designs. The car has not been redesigned so much during its existence and was what caused the problem in the first place. The past update came 5 years ago in 2011 when some of the awkwardness was revised and changed a bit with some styling changes that managed to change the angels of the car and give it a bit of a modern look. The changes brought then were kept now and still remain a part of the exterior design of the car for the new 2016 model.

The newest elements and thus the highlights of the new design of the car feature a new grille, a revised good and newly added headlights as well. The grille is the same one used in with the Cherokee vehicle while the other parts of the front end of the car have been changed in accordance to bring us a much more modern design. The profile of the car is a lot different as it has some trapezoidal but soft details to it. Some would say that it looks a lot cuter now, but we would not like to go so far and can only state that the car is much more appropriate for the contemporary period.

Interior

The inside can only be described as controversial, as the 2016 Jeep Compass has gone through a significant update. This is one of the examples of a mid-year revamp seen only in the Chrysler and Dodge vehicles and as it manages to do a better job it also leaves a few backdrops and has a few misses here and there. But all in all we can say that this is a fairly good revamp. It manages to solve many issues that the vehicles have had before and adds a lot of comfort and usability inside the car. The design is pretty straightforward while it has some very functional features to it. The cabin has been arranged so every person can find its way around it and quickly learn what it’s all about.

They have concentrated on enhancing the upholsteries and the materials inside the car and have now made available the Saddle Brown perforated leather upholstery which has accent stitching. There has also been a change in the pallet of the colors that have been used inside the car, so for instance last year’s Eco Green Clear Coat has been updated with a Mojave Sand color theme for this year. But the design also leaves a lot of holes and it actually deals with the technical support which could not have been bleaker. We expect this to change for the future models and would like to see much more of the Compass vehicle in the tech department than the choices given to us now.

Engine

Although the engine has been refined along the years and we have various upgrades to the powertrain of the Jeep Compass now it still uses the same engine it always has. This means that under the hood of the 2016 model you will still see the 158-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, while Limited versions of the Compass get the 2.4 liter version which produces 172-hp. The Sport trim gets a five-speed manual gearbox as its base option while a six-speed automatic one is available for all trims and comes offered as an optional choice. But the fuel economy does not come in high numbers as it has been rated to an EPA rating of 30 mpg on the highway at best, but the off-road package actually helps as it manages with 20/23 mpg.

Price and release date

One of the advantages of the 2016 Jeep Compass is its price which still remains at an affordable rate of 19,595 USD as base MSRP. This is something that will help the Compass get its needed sales and it has always managed to help the line, but if the car does not get the required upgrades we are not sure how long will it manage to remain like so. The car is going to be available for sale next year with the release date made for March of next year.

New 2016 Jeep Renegade – Release Date and Info

2016 Jeep Renegade Release Date, Price, Specs, MPG, Review – The forthcoming 2016 Jeep Renegade has a lot to offer with its new and engaging style and the ability to please both the people who want to use it as a commuter and those who aim this vehicle for off-roading. But the fact remains that its performance does not come in the required numbers as it was expected. Nevertheless, the car manages to come off with some stellar specs which you will be able to find out about in this review.

The Renegade is perhaps the smallest Jeep that has been produced by Chrysler, in fact it actually is the smallest jeep that has been mad after World War II. But with its small size the car does offer immense functionality and versatility. Not only is it capable of being a vehicle for everyday use or your daily commuter vehicle, it also managed to come with some rugged numbers and specs which give it a pretty decent off-road package.

The Renegade is also a great opportunity for the American buyers to get a vehicle with jeep characteristics for a price within the 20,000 dollars range, which is rare to find on the US soil these days. The Renegade offers well functionality and driving characteristics that are seen in some smaller SUV vehicle and even goes well beyond them. The fact is the Renegade is one of the better vehicles produced by Chrysler this year and if you take a look at the pictures you will see just why is that. The competition is also gearing up whit models as 2016 Honda HR-V, Nissan Juke, Mazda CX-3 and Buick Encore model.

The Renegade ‘s exterior looks blends tradition with the urban sized characteristics and does better to incorporate some hatchback characteristics than the next step Cherokee car. The profile of the car is well upright but in fact pretty much square but it does come with a bluff front end and a vertical tailgate. It is actually very tall, very slob sided and so upright despite its size which is an amazing feat of engineering. The car has a standard Jeep grille up front with the standard seven slats which are here much more pronounced that in the upper level Cherokee, for instance. The headlamps are rounded and have been etched with a Jeep icon in the lamps. The wheel arches have been designed to be very large and have a trapezoidal shape while both the front end and rear end bumpers look very strong and beefy.

What is an interesting addition to the outside design is that the car has adopted some peculiar additions or in fact some Easter Eggs that can be seen through the whole vehicle. For instance the rear tailgates of the vehicle have an X design that has been directly borrowed from the WWII one which had the same design made to its back side. In the rubber bin pad you can find the map of the Detroit skyline etched inside. For God’s sake, there is even a small Yeti placed by climbing up the edge of the rear window as well. So the design does not make it also workable and appropriate for the car it also makes it fun for the owner to enjoy.

Interior

The inside of the 2016 Jeep Renegade has a tougher more robust layout than the one you could have expected to see inside a subcompact car. Everything has adopted this look, the dash, the console the furnishing of the vehicle, everything. Of course the car gets appropriately oversized controls and combines them with the Jeep elements which you have been expecting to see inside a vehicle like this one. The controls are big and round and are also easily understandable. There are two air vents on a pod positioned on the center console which rather remind us of a particular cartoon character, we assume that you will notice which one we mean when seeing this.

Generally speaking the interior of the Renegade is more like a generic but very practical design that does not actually come with a lot of Jeep elements. If there was not all the military inspired texture inside the car and the Jeep logos everywhere, you may have not noticed that this is a jeep at all. This means that the inside is a very good one and something that makes the car useable for a lot of different purposes. The comfort levels are awesome and are pretty high for this type of a vehicle, making the new 2016 Renegade an all-round vehicle which will be on the top of sales lists for this year for certain.

Engine

We now come to the engine design of the 2016 Jeep Renegade car which this time comes with a 160-horsepower turbocharged 1.4-liter four, as a base powertrain which also provides 184 lb-ft of torque. This engine option comes with a six-speed manual gearbox and does well for the primary use of the vehicle. But if you want to go a step forward and use something a bit more powerful there is a second engine option added, the 180-horsepower 2.4-liter four, which makes 175 lb-ft of torque  and is used with a nine-speed automatic gearbox. The car does not only come with an all-wheel option but also various kinds of settings for various kinds of extreme conditions. The Trailhawk model, or the highest trim level, packs everything all into one and with an inch taller ground clearance can surpass any obstacle with ease.

Jeep Wrangler is by no mistake one of Jeep’s most trending models and will come with important refreshments which we are going to be addressed exhaustively in the following review. The Jeep Wrangler is also ranked within the compact crossovers and SUVs segment and is even ranked higher than the current Subaru Outback, but still has the Hyundai Tuscon, Ford Escape and Honda CR-V models in front of it.

Exterior – 2016 Jeep Wrangler

Ever since the creation of the Jeep Wrangler model, the vehicle has always managed to  maintain its overall look despite of the alterations that have adorned it whenever a new model is released to the market. Up front, the new Jeep Wrangler 2016 will retain its seven-slit grille, angular LED headlights, and fog lights.

Also a refreshed bumper will now appear smoother than in its predecessor. Moreover, the windshield dimensions have suffered a reduction for purposes of making the car look assertive and bold. The vehicle’s designers also gave the vehicle a higher ground clearance which as they put it will ensure the truck has a smooth ride on both rough on-road and off-road terrain, and on water too.

2016 Jeep Wrangler Engine Specs

Beneath the hood of the new Jeep Wrangler 2016 will be a six-cylinder V6 engine which will have a displacement of 3.6Litres. The above engine will be able to generate up to 285 hp and 280 pounds feet of torque.

The engine will come paired to either a 5-speed transmission with an auto shift or just a 6-speed with a manual gearbox. The transmission will be a massive leap towards the future considering the previous version used only a one speed transmission mode.

Another engine worth noting will be the 3.6L engine that, according to insiders, will have a better fuel economy and will consume lesser fuel than its predecessor. With the new engine comes an increment of the fuel economy ratings by a staggering 20 percent which is by any terms impressive.

Despite the automobile’s assertion that the main alteration to the vehicle will be the reduction in weight, that won’t certainly be the most drastic as Jeep has made headlines by saying the new engine will be a diesel powered.

The Jeep Wrangler diesel 2016 will be powered by a turbocharged 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel engine. The turbocharged V6engine will be able to crank out 240 hp and about 420 pounds of torque. This power will be transmitted to an all-wheel drive system through the eight-speed automatic transmission system.

It is projected that the fuel economy ratings will be 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway at least for the V6 engine.
