Jeep could be planning an SRT version for the new Compass

Jeep is the Fiat Chrysler Automobile Group (FCA) firm that best commercial results are getting. The leaders of the group are aware of this and are therefore enhancing the qualities of its range. Among the models that make up soon will be the new generation of Compass and to make it more attractive in the eyes of customers, at the signing of the seven bars would be thinking of giving a vitamin version.

We all know the SRT models of the American manufacturer. They distinguish themselves from their brothers by their great motors, high performances (high consumption too) and by being endowed with aesthetic elements that differentiate it from the rest of brothers of range. These models (according to the company) have a reception in the market much more good than we could expect and why its existence is more than justified.

The creators of the latest generation of the Jeep Compass would be evaluating whether the market would be receptive to having an SRT version of the SUV. If the demand were strong enough the heads of the FCA Group could give the green light to the project and therefore, in a short time we could have a spicy version of this, now, interesting compact SUV.

If this information is true, there are rumors that place Jim Lyijynen, chief engineer of the development of the Jeep Compass, talking about the mechanics that could use the variant SRT. The first idea that manages the manufacturer is to use the same gas block with 3.2 liters of piston displacement Pentastar in configuration V6 that offers the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

However, this motorization is not very adapted to the tastes of European consumers and with the Compass SRT would like to have a global model. Therefore, it would not be unreasonable to use a variant with four cylinders and turbocharged (I can think of the engine 2 liters turbo that just released the Giulia and Stelvio) to significantly reduce consumption and emissions.

This information sounds like celestial music so we have to be aware if the FCA Group makes any statement. In addition, the spy photographers are lurking in case a test vehicle is discovered tuning the Jeep Compass SRT.
