Chrysler stops offering CVTs for 2014 Jeep Compass and Patriot

Chrysler Group will no longer offer continuously variable transmissions for its re-engineered 2014 Jeep Compass and Patriot compact crossovers, as part of the carmaker’s mid-cycle changes for the two vehicle models. Chrysler will instead install a new six-speed automatic gearbox in the crossovers. The Compass and Patriot have used CVTs since they were introduced in 2006.

According to Jeep engineers, the new six-speed automatic is quieter and enhances acceleration as well as highway fuel economy. Mike Manley, head of the Jeep brand, remarked that they are going to address the final customer points on the vehicles, which focus on the transmission.

The crossover will also sport styling changes in their exterior, but will be limited to new headlights and taillights and more chrome trim. For the interior, the crossovers will be available with new optional leather seats made of the same materials as the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
