A First Look at the "Baby" Jeep SUV

When we at Thompson Chrysler Dodge Jeep caught a first glimpse of the new Jeep crossover, we knew it was going to be big news for SUV enthusiasts. Photos of the vehicle's test site show a prototype based on the Fiat 500 L, and sources say the new Jeep model will echo the Fiat 500X to be released in Europe by early 2015. We wish we didn't have to wait another year for the new, smaller Jeep vehicle to be released in the United States, but we're excited to share the latest details on our blog.

Although the new model will be about the size of the Fiat 500 L crossover, the still unnamed "baby" Jeep version will feature all-wheel drive for extra traction on rough terrain. No official details are available, but speculations are that the powertrain will be similar to the one powering another Chrysler crossover vehicle, the Dodge Dart, while the exterior will feature a squared-off design clearly recognizable as a Jeep model. This subcompact SUV is intended to replace the Jeep Compass and Patriot models here in the U.S.

At Thompson Chrysler Dodge Jeep, we trust Jeep brand vehicles for reliability and durability. We can't wait for the premier of the "baby" Jeep SUV to add to our impressive inventory of new Jeep vehicles perfect for adventure on or off the road. Come by our Baltimore, MD dealership today to take one of the latest models for a test drive. We'd be proud to send you home with a sturdy and powerful Jeep SUV while you wait for its sleek, mini counterpart to hit production.
