Very cool. All this discussion about the Compass being discontinued or not, and here they have an Overland.

So, new things in short:
- wheels
- grille
- rounded air vents
- softer armrest
Not much. No big changes. Must be a good car if does not need changing

Happiness is not a goal, but a lifestyle

Maybe they sell better abroad? In any case, a few changes to differentiate the Compass might help its sales.

To my eye, they both have a more molded, less pieced-together look in those pics. I like it.

I guess they both are sporting EU bumpers but that shouldn't change the look by much.

Also

- side-turn signals/markers are added to the side front fenders
- back up warning signal (you can see the sensors on the rear bumper)
- door sills
- reshaped dash (not just the air vents)
- chrome inserts in interior

Which are already on the European versions of the Patriot and Compass. Remember these are concepts for the European market.

1st one- 1989 Cherokee Laredo. 12 great years
2nd one- 2001 Cherokee Limited. Got it before they were gone.
