Jeep Patriot and Compass are two separate yet matching compact crossover SUVs as they share many common features.

Therefore, despite being different names and price ranges, both SUVs have matching features and parts.

As a result, the manufacturer discontinued the production of Patriot after 2017 and introduced the second generation of Compass for later models from 2018-onwards.
