Its not just the car but the service that could let them down.
The Fiat service quality has improved from the TATA days, but the reach is still a concern. However, I don't think they will be opening up new dealership for Jeeps and therefore It would not matter a great deal if they bring quality products even under the Fiat brand.

The new Compass 2017 will be responsible for the 2.0 engine debut Tigershark on Brazil, already in version estimated 160 cv flex.
It will be mated to the six-speed automatic transmission used in the Renegade 1.8, and always with traction 4 ◊ 2 (front). The base will be truck Fiat Toro, which in turn derives from the Renegade, but with shorter clearances. More expensive versions, the Compass will use the 2.0 Multijet 170 HP diesel, exclusively with automatic exchange of nine marches (the first being reduced to off-road) and traction 4 ◊ 4.

New Jeep Compass is spotted in China.

The project 551 of FCA's being called the New Jeep Compass and was recently seen in China. The future crossover will be above the Renegade and is produced in several places, including Brazil, Mexico and China.

Quote:
The new Compass will also have a range of engine options, starting with the 1.4 MultiAir Turbo, which can deliver up to 170 HP in a setting for crossover, as well as the Tigershark 2.0 and 2.4, ranging from 160 to 190 HP.

With diesel, Multijet II 2.0 with 140 or 170 cv is another option. In Europe, even the 1.6 diesel version with 120 HP wouldn't be something impossible. Already the transmission must be manual or automatic with six or nine gears.

Scheduled to debut at the 2016 Sao Paulo Auto show in November, the Jeep 551 will be brought into India via the CKD route and will be assembled at Fiat's Ranjangaon plant.

When launched by Q3-2017 with a localised 170BHP 2.0L Multijet II diesel engine, it will take on the Toyota Fortuner and the Ford Endeavour.

Production of the current Compass and Patriot at Fiat Chrysler’s Belvidere, Ill., plant is to end Dec. 23rd.

Meanwhile, North American production of the replacement for both models — the name of which hasn’t been announced — is to begin Jan. 30, 2017, in Toluca, Mexico.

Bro, not sure what makes you believe it would be a CKD, as FIAT is investing to produce the car with a lot of localization, ofcourse to price it sensibly if not agressive. Also, it's in no way close to the segment of the Ford or the Toyota. So, I'm not sure how it will take on the big guns, apart from the possibility of the price and sales numbers.

That would be Jeep's India-specific model you are talking about, to be developed locally and with an initial investment input of $280 million. (link)

The Jeep 551, on the other hand, is the replacement for the Compass and the Patriot worldwide. It is design-wise similar to the Grand Cherokee and slots above the Renegade in Jeep's lineup. If imported as a CBU, it will cost no less than 50-odd lacs. Only way to keep costs down is to bring it via the CKD route, for which Jeep has shortlisted 2 models from it's lineup - one being the 551. (link)

Buddy, not sure if you read the first comment after the post in that link. It's from me and to avoid any further confusion, just wanted to share that the India specific model is nothing but the 551. They planned to bring in the GC as CKD, but I doubt if that would happen any time soon.

There are only 3 Jeeps currently under consideration for India. Wrangler & GC under CBU, with wrangler having both short & long wheelbase versions and GC in it's SRT form. The third would be the upcoming 551 or Compass as I would like to call it (you would too if you checked Zauba). I have not heard of any other car being specifically built for India,especially above the Renegade.

PS: Even if the Compass was to be imported as CBU, it would not cost more than 35-40Lacs, as it's not going to be priced in the range of Wrangler or Cherokee(not GC) even in US.

The FCA decided to advance the launch of its new national SUV. The Jeep Compass will hit stores before the Sao Paulo motor show, which takes place between 10 and 20 November and will feature the model among its stars. The jeep, which is greater than the Renegade and is practically a mini Grand Cherokee, will go on sale at dealerships in October
Quote:
According to sources involved in the project, Brazil will be the first country to sell the car, still in 2016. Production in Mexico should be initiated on 30 January 2017. Other markets will also manufacture the SUV, which must be produced in the United States and China, and is considered also to be done in India

Jeep Compass will compete with Hyundai ix35, Honda CR-V, Mitsubishi ASX and Toyota RAV4.

Quote:
The engine of the versions of entry will be the 2.0 16V Tigershark flex of 159 horsepower to 6,200 rpm with gasoline and 164 HP to 6,000 rpm with ethanol. The torque will be in the House of the 4,000 rpm kgfm 19.8 20.4 kgfm the 4,400 rpm, respectively.

Already the top-of-the-line versions will have 2.0 turbodiesel engine of 170 HP and 35.7 kgfm of torque, equal to that of the Jeep Renegade. The exchange rate must also be the nine-speed and automatic traction more complete configurations will be adaptive integral. One of the key differentiators of the Compass in relation to younger brother, Renegade, will be in suspension, which replaces the rear McPherson scheme for multilink. The versions are the same ones used by the younger brother: Sport, Longitude and Trailhawk.

After doing a survey way back in April, Fiat is looking to bring an 'India specific SUV -Jeep 551' - could either be a <4 m or a 4.3m long to take on Creta /Duster. Will have the highest level of localization possible.

Fiat confirms Jeep Renegade will not be for India but continues to test in India as the Renegade will be the donor car for the all new SUVís that FCA group is making for India.
Quote:
The testing of this platform could spawn as much SUV as the Indian market requires and finally we can see FCA group vehicles getting much success that it has looked for
But the problem seem the time frame for this project. As it stands it looks like a release earlier than 2018 looks bleak.
