Auburn Hills, Mich., Aug 8, 2005 -
The legendary Jeep® brand hints at global portfolio expansion and
explores all-new territory with the world premiere of two compact SUV
concepts—the Jeep Patriot and Jeep
. 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.
Jeep® Patriot concept offers
a modern interpretation of classic Jeep styling: rugged, strong and
capable. 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. 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 the most capable vehicle in its class.
