It's no secret that both the Jeep Patriot
and Compass are living on borrowed time. Each were designed during an era of deep cost-cutting and a mindset that a Jeep
model can do well even without real off-road capabilities. Since both vehicles here are built on the same platform as the old Dodge
Caliber, it's fair to say they're not true Jeeps in the same sense as the Wrangler or Grand Cherokee. With both models on their way out, Jeep has revealed mild updates for each at the Detroit Auto Show.
