Sales trends show a high (approx. 50%) female buyer for the Compass, and a majority (forgot the %age) of males go for the Patriot. The strong negative comments I hear about the Compass are from the guys. I'm pretty sure there are a ton of people out there that don't like 'boxy' vehicles. I used to be one of them.

Because of the surprisingly high take rate by the ladies, the Compass will be considered a success. It'll get more people into the Jeep brand, and should strengthen it even more. Smart move. Although I do read snippets that Compass sales are 'slow' - I believe the Patriot will more than make up for it.

Patriot vs. Compass

The Compass cannot be Trail Rated. That is a major difference.
My wife wants something good in the winter with 4x and enough cargo
room for 3 large dogs....I sure hope she gets a Patriot.
Let's just say, it will look good next to my XJ.
That will make 4 Jeeps in the family.
Hell, I'm excited..

If it says Jeep on it and it has 4x.... it's a Jeep to me.

I bought a Patriot, one of the first in Ohio as far as I know. Silver, very nice.

Putting 3 large dogs into the back of a patriot would be a tight fit.

someone at ***********.com did a size comparison...

the XJ is slightly bigger so I guess you wouldn't have a problem.
I guess when I envision "Big" dogs, I think of BIG dogs. I have a greyhound, and many consider him to be a big dog but I don't. He's medium to me
