Fiat Chrysler unveils 2017 Jeep Compass SUV


Fiat Chrysler has unveiled the 2017 Jeep Compass, the vehicle that replaces both the original Jeep Compass and the Patriot. FCA officially released images of the small SUV recently at its assembly plant in Goiana, Brazil. The 2017 Jeep Compass is a vehicle that will be available in markets all over the world. While many global Jeep customers are already familiar with the Jeep Compass name, other markets that had been used to the Jeep Patriot will be hearing the Jeep Compass name for the first time. Fortunately the Jeep brand has always been known for producing durable, dependable, fun to drive, good-looking automobiles, so customers new to the Compass name know what to expect.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has built the new Compass on a larger version of the Small-Wide platform that has been used with great success on the smaller Jeep Renegade. The immediate challenge for the 2017 Jeep Compass is for a single vehicle to replace the original Jeep Compass as well as the Jeep Patriot in the minds and hearts of Jeep customers. What makes replacing the Patriot and the original Compass interesting is that although both vehicles were subjected to endless derision, they did sell amazingly well, particularly over the past two years. But FCA seems confident the snazzy looking 2017 Jeep Compass will do just fine. If you want to see the Jeep Compass in action, you should really consider taking one for a spin at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.

Many buyers loved the Patriot and the original Compass because they combined an affordable low price with the ruggedness, quality engineering and daring visual design elements people have come to depend on Jeep brand vehicles to provide. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles wants customers to know the 2017 Jeep Compass is both affordable and quintessentially Jeep in its design, visual appearance and performance. And as the recently released pictures show, it is a rugged-looking yet very attractive automobile. One that’s versatile enough for off-roading yet stylish enough for classy date nights and everyday use.

While Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has revealed that the 2017 Jeep Compass for the international market has already begun production in Brazil and the 2017 Compass for the North American market will be produced in Mexico, the company has not revealed a lot of information about the powertrains of the vehicles. The company did say the 2017 Jeep Compass comes with 17 fuel-efficient powertrain options designed to meet the needs of consumers in over 100 countries worldwide. Aside from the photos, Jeep lovers and the automotive media will have to wait until November at the Los Angeles Auto Show for the 2017 Compass’ domestic debut.

People in the know postulate that the 2017 Jeep Compass will use Jeep’s stalwart 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and it will be paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission for the American market. However, Jeep has several other four-cylinder engines they could use for the Compass. One of them is Jeep’s turbocharged 2.0-liter “Hurricane” four that’s slated for the 2018 Wrangler. The company has said the Compass has “best-in-class 4×4 off-road capability”. So it will have “Trail Rated” badges when it debuts in early 2017.



The new 2017 Chrysler 300 is fast, powerful and stylish. In addition to that, the federal government just gave it a four-star safety rating. That means no matter how fast it zooms along the highways, byways and city streets, its driver and passengers are safe and sound. The full-size Chrysler 300 sedan was not just given that high rating, it earned it based on the way it handled the intense testing it was put through by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This is confirmation that Fiat Chrysler Automotive has done its homework. This new vehicle not only has style, it has substance as well.

While it didn’t earn five stars, which is the NHTSA’s highest rating, the vehicle has proven that it’s designed to safeguard every passenger and the driver. So as the 300 makes its way to a Chrysler dealership near you, you can rest assured this beautiful new vehicle with all the latest bells and whistles will safeguard you and your loved ones no matter where your travels take you. Not only did the Chrysler 300 get four stars in its front crash and rollover crash tests, it got the top rated five stars on its side crash test. That’s enough to make lovers of this vehicle able to confidently cruise wherever life takes them. To see how you like the feel of the 300, check one out at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.

This new high safety rating applies to the 2017 Chrysler 300 models with either rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive. This sedan is chuck full of important safety features. These versions of 2017 Chrysler 300’s standard safety features include inflatable driver’s knee bolster, front and side-curtain airbags, electronic stability control, a rearview camera as well as hill start assist. That means it’s not just another good-looking vehicle from the FCA stable that made to perform well. It’s designed with the safety of the people inside in mind. That adds to the comfort level.

To make the 2017 Chrysler 300 even safer, the manufacturer offers a number of other pieces of optional safety equipment. Those options includes forward collision warning, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control. So while the new sedan runs like a gazelle, it’s as safe as a tank. This will allow it to compete quite nicely with the other vehicles in its class like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the BMW 5 series and the Audi A6 in terms of safety. Plus, when you add the new technology, power and creature-comforts for which Chrysler is known, the 2017 Chrysler 300 is a great value for the price.

The front of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler is getting a minor makeover. No need to worry, the iconic vehicle will have most of the elements drivers have come to know and love. The only thing that’s going to change is the headlights. The 2017 model now comes with optional LED headlights. The better for making those late-night off-road runs. The new LED headlights will be a factory feature for the 2017 Jeep Wrangler being made for the American market. It’s the first time Fiat Chrysler has changed the headlights on this much beloved vehicle.

The new headlights are just a hint of some of the changes Jeep enthusiasts can expect to see when the 2018 model hits the showroom and the streets. In 2018 ,Jeep will replace the current Wrangler with a brand new model. So the 2017 model is the last opportunity for buyers to get the Wrangler they have come to know. Fiat Chrysler hasn’t said what changes people can expect for 2018, but rest assured it’s going to be great. For now if you want the classic Wrangler look you’ve gotten used to, the 2017 model will be your last opportunity to get it, and you can get your hands on one at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.

People who purchase the 2017 Wrangler or the four door Wrangler Unlimited will get the new headlights as part of the Sahara and Rubicon trims standard equipment. The Sport and Sport S will see the new LED headlight offered as an option. They will make it all the better to see your way no matter where your travel adventures take you. According to the venerable forum Jeep Garage lower trims that want the new LED headlights will have to pay $595 for it as a dealer-added upgrade. That won’t hurt too much when the lowest base price of the two-door 2017 Sport is $23,995 and it costs $37,445 for the four-door Rubicon’s most expensive model.

Jeep’s press release says the new lights are significantly brighter. The output of the low beam will be increased by 63 percent, while the high-beam output will increase by 90 percent. Sounds like it will make nighttime driving almost as bright as daylight. The fog lights on the 2017 Wrangler will be LED as well. Jeep has not said how much brighter LED technology will make the fog lights, but it’s sure to be improved significantly as well. What’s also significant is it takes 67 percent less power to run the new headlights.

The improvement in illumination of the 2017 Jeep Wrangler is sure to please more than a few Jeep fans. On the forums the current Jeep Wrangler headlights have been described as ‘decent’ to as low as ‘piss poor’. So the new, brighter LED headlights will be a welcome change for many people. Plus, Fiat Chrysler isn’t simply adding new LED light bulbs, the company is creating a housing specially designed to maximize the projection of the LEDs. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler’s specific are still a mystery. But with the new LED headlights the future of the Jeep Wrangler looks much brighter. Either way, no matter what Jeep Wrangler addition you get, you are sure to be happy.

Jeep Towing


So you’ve finally gotten the Jeep you’ve always wanted, and now you are ready to plan your outdoor adventures. But first you want the right trailer hitch so you can tow anything you need to make your adventures more spectacular. There are a number of hitch types from which to choose. They vary not only in design, but also in tongue weight and overall towing capacity. Hitches are rated from Class I to Class V. A class I hitch has a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds and between 200 and 250 pounds in tongue weight. A Class V hitch can tow up to 25,000 pounds.

There are round, square, receiver, weight distribution, 5th Wheel and Gooseneck hitches. The way you plan to use you Jeep will determine which type is right for you. It’s very important to consider the vehicle’s towing capacity, gross trailer weight and trailer tongue weight before you decide. Make sure the trailer hitch you choose is compatible with your vehicle. Unless you have experience and the skills and tools necessary, it is usually best to have your trailer hitch installed by an expert. This can eliminate potential problems and make the towing experience safer and easier. To see how easy it is to love a Jeep, test drive one out at Chapman Chrysler Jeep.

When choosing a trailer hitch, it’s usually a good idea to choose one which offers excess capacity without exceeding your Jeep’s towing capacity. If you buy more jet skis or motorcycles, get a larger boat or for some other reason your towing needs increase, you won’t have to spend more money to replace the trailer hitch you already have with a heavier one. On the other hand, there is nothing wrong with towing a lighter trailer using a heavier hitch.

Make sure to do your due diligence when you are deciding on which trailer hitch to buy. As part of your research, be sure to talk to a trailer hitch dealer and ask them about the designs they have available. The trailer hitch dealer can also tell you which type of hitch is compatible with your Jeep and tell you which one is right for your vehicle. There are some hitches that are designed to be unobtrusive and hidden under the bumper of the SUV. Others are made so they can be more prominently placed and cannot be hidden because of your vehicle’s undercladding. Hitches can also vary in style, finish, quality and color. Choose the one that best suits your aesthetic and functional needs. To find the best one for your needs, check out the Jeep parts and accessories at your local Jeep dealer.

There are many different types of hitches made by a variety of manufacturers that have several different features. Curt hitches are among the most popular. Many Jeep owners like them because of the well-fitting, vehicle-specific designs they offer, as well as their powder coat rust-resistant finishes. If you want the low-profile look, you may like a Hidden Hitch receiver hitch. It features removable drawbars which can help to make the hitch almost invisible when it’s not being used.

Whichever trailer hitch you choose for your Jeep be sure to use it safely.
