Jeep Liberty & Compass replacement coming in 2013 - report

 Jeep Liberty & Compass replacement coming in 2013 - report
2012 Jeep Liberty Arctic special edition - 11.11.2011

Will be based on the CUSW platform

The Dodge Dart was recently unveiled at the North American International Auto Show, but a new report is indicating it is just the harbinger of things to come.

According to USA Today, the model's CUSW (Compact U.S. Wide) platform will underpin the replacements for the Jeep Liberty, Jeep Compass, Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger. The latter part is interesting because it contradicts previous rumors the Avenger would be axed, but nothing is official as of yet.

Both Jeeps will reportedly be launched next year and Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said one of them will be "a trail-rated, full-blooded Jeep that has its origins in the architecture of a sports car."

In related news, Chrysler is considering an entry-level hatchback - dubbed the 100 - which could also be exported as a Lancia if approved for production.

Almost anything would be better than the current Cherokee/Liberty. Interiors are ghastly, fit and finish is a notch above Chinese quality standards, not to mention its lack of steering feedback.

...maybe I missed that but as far as what has been said and written there is only supposed to be 1 Jeep that replaces the compass & the patriot so does that mean the Jeep Liberty will be "a trail-rated, full-blooded Jeep that has its origins in the architecture of a sports car." That would be a very interesting vehicle...

I am a Wrangler fan, and I see this Jeep family extension with some concern. I hope Marchionne will not be tempted to transform Jeep into another bunch of retarded SUVs.
