The Jeep 551 will serve as the second generation Jeep Patriot/Jeep Compass.

When launched, the Jeep 551 will serve as the second generation model of the Jeep Compass or Jeep Patriot. The current Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot are mechanically the same products, but the Compass is a more modern looking model while the Patriot has the classic Jeep look, and obviously, aimed at a different set of buyers.

The Jeep C-SUV will be based on the small-wide front-wheel drive platform.

The Jeep C-SUV will be based on the Fiat 500X and the Jeep Renegade‘s small-wide front-wheel drive platform. Expected to be one of the most globally focused Jeep models to be on sale when launched, the Jeep C-SUV will be available in right-hand drive configuration also. Two engines are said to be on offer: ~164 hp 2.0-liter Tigershark petrol and ~170 hp 2.0-liter MultiJet II diesel, mated to 6-speed manual or 9-speed automatic transmission.

The Jeep 551 will debut at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show in November. It will be built in Brazil as well as in India. In India, the right-hand drive version will be built, at the Tata-Fiat JV plant in Ranjangaon, Maharashtra, beginning next year.
