Jeep has published a teaser for its new three-row SUVApril 7, 2021
The press service of the American brand has published a teaser showing a new three-row SUV, which is based on the current Jeep Compass crossover. The novelty, which will be named Commander, will be sold in Brazil.
Among several new products Jeep is preparing this year is the SUV, which will be mass-produced in Brazil. The name of the model, which in the current lineup of the brand will be located above the current Compass, has not been confirmed, but the new teaser leaves serious suspicions as to what it might be – apparently, we are talking about the word Commander. Previously, there were rumors about the name Patriot, but a new teaser already refutes this theory.
The new seven-seater Jeep SUV was often seen in Brazil – the body of the novelty was very seriously camouflaged.
The teaser video above shows some details that show that this isn’t just a long wheelbase version of the current Compass crossover with extra seats. We see that the front is more curved; The false radiator grille has become straighter and more detailed, and even the headlights are exclusive to this car. It is already known that the new model from Jeep will be powered by a 1.3-liter turbocharged engine and a 2.0-liter turbodiesel, and this engine has more power than the one used in other models of the company today.
Jeep has already indicated that the new SUV will be one of the most advanced models to be produced in Brazil. We can expect options such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind spot alert, automatic emergency braking, and Jeep’s new multimedia system with 4G connectivity and built-in Wi-Fi with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The novelty will be built on the same platform that powers the Jeep Renegade and Compass, but with modifications for the third row, which will be hidden under the floor when not in use.
The official debut of the new model will take place in the second quarter of 2021.
