Of course it is. It will probably be more of a Jeep than the Compass. The Compass seems to be more of a car based vehicle with no off-road capability. I guess you will have to wait and see how the Trailhawk version of the Renegade will be. I saw a Trailhawk version of the Cherokee on the showroom at a local dealer. What a beautiful Jeep!!!!!!!

As soon as it rolls off the assembly line and gets that little J - E - E - P badge put on it, it's a Jeep.

I suppose if you disagree, you could either not buy one or you could apply for Marchionne or Manley's job and change it. Because until you're in charge of an international multi-million dollar company, your individual opinion doesn't really matter. They'll make whatever they think will make them some money, and SOME of us will even buy it.

But to be less frank about it, yeah. I think it will fit nicely into the Jeep lineup (otherwise why the heck would I even be registered on this forum).

Not technically, as a consumer our opinion is our dollars, and if we don't give them our dollars than what are they in business for right ;) I see what you're getting at however.

When we had the similar thread before I made the point to one of our traditionalist friends that Jeep had to build the renegade because all those traditionalists who don't buy new Jeeps weren't paying the bills! >:D

You're absolutely right. If all Jeep made was Wranglers, they wouldn't sell any more than they do now. They would just lose all the money from people that wanted to purchase the other vehicles they have to offer.

People can and will argue about this topic all day, every day, for the rest of their lives though.

Oh and that's why I said "individual" opinions. If there are enough people with the same opinion, then of course, that may override executive decisions.

I don't care what they call it or about the specific heritage. Someone brilliantly pointed out in the other thread that Porsche (an iconic sports car brand) is making their livelihood selling sedans and SUVs. Do you remember Jeep Comanche pickups? They were not the best offering in the late '80s, but a lot of diehard "Jeep guys" of that era accepted it as cool solely based on the name.
If Jeeps need to diversify their product line to support their "core" products, then the traditionalists should celebrate that Jeep is keeping costs down for the specialty products. This is Jeep's tradition, as evidenced by the Comanche and other variants.

Of course it's not. If so, then the 3-wheeled baby stroller I bought my son at Babies-R-Us is a real Jeep. Slapping a name tag on a vehicle doesn't make it a Jeep. Being able to transport humans to terrains and places that regular vehicles cannot is what makes a vehicle a Jeep.

So if everyone started making off-roaders, no jeeps would be jeeps?
