What about the new Jeep Renegade? Overheard the guys at my local chevy dealer talking about it, seems like it could be a better competitor to the Trax
Find me the specs, they havent been released as far as I've looked. The Renegade fits in the same footprint and market slot as the Patriot/Compass, plus Renegade won't be available until early '15. So if you need a vehicle now Renegade is not exactly helpful..

Trax seems more aimed at casual city drivers than the Compass which is still going for the standard Jeep off-road thing. People looking into the Trax could therefore go with the Jeep possibly, but people who are interested in the jeep I think are less likely to be swayed into getting the Trax.

and I think thats why there is sufficient crossover between the two. I could see the Jeep traditionalist argument holding true if we were considering the wrangler or GC, but the Compass has always been shirked by the hardcore Jeep enthusiast...
