Displaying Compass badges on the doors and a prominent Limited designation on the tailgate, the website, autoo.br, claims the newcomer, which looks like a scaled down Grand Cherokee, will be based on a bigger version of the Small Wide 4x4 platform used by the Renegade, Fiat 500X and South American market Fiat Toro pick-up, with power likely to come from a 2.0-litre turbocharged or 2.4-litre normally aspirated petrol engine. A 2.0-litre turbodiesel is also rumoured.
A six-speed manual or ZF-sourced nine-speed automatic will possibly serve as transmission options, with drive going to the front or all four wheels.
Carscoops reports that the new "Compass" will make its official debut in Brazil later this month, with production and sales expected to commence next year.
