  • Updated designs for 2014 Grand Cherokee and 2014 Compass
  • New trim choices, including Grand Cherokee Summit and Compass North
  • Special 10th Anniversary Edition for Wrangler Rubicon

Jeep revealed a trio of European premieres at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show, including the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the 2014 Jeep Compass and a special edition of the Wrangler Rubicon that celebrates 10 years for the rugged, trail-ready model.

The Grand Cherokee, which sports an updated look for the 2014 model year, benefits from a new, 8-speed automatic transmission that Jeep says will deliver better economy and acceleration and smoother shifts. The gearbox will be available across the Grand Cherokee engine lineup, which includes the diesel V6 that Jeep soon will offer in the U.S. for the first time.

In addition to the new transmission, the 2014 Grand Cherokee also features updated designs inside and out. Up front, a shorter grille is flanked by LED daytime running lights and bi-xenon headlights. At the rear, LEDs are used for the new, larger taillights as well, and a redesigned tailgate improves visibility. Inside, the Grand Cherokee gets an 8.4-inch touchscreen in the center stack, and is now available with a customizable display in the instrument cluster.

Finally, the Grand Cherokee Summit becomes the range-topping trim choice starting with the 2014 model year. It joins the entry-level Laredo and mid-range Limited and Overland models.

The 2014 Jeep Compass also has a new automatic transmission: a 6-speed unit that is paired with both the 2.0-liter and 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engines available in the Compass. Jeep says the 6-speed is smoother, quieter and more efficient than the CVT it replaces. The automaker also claims the new transmission will lower maintenance costs; it has no dipstick and requires no filter or fluid changes under normal operating conditions.

The 2014 Compass gets a new top-of-the-lineup trim choice too. The Sport and Limited models are joined by the new Compass North in Europe. In the U.S., we can choose from the Sport, Latitude or Limited.

The quintessential Jeep Wrangler also shared the spotlight at the 2013 Geneva Auto Show, showing off the new 10th Anniversary Edition of the off-road specialist Wrangler Rubicon. Available on the 2-door Wrangler and 4-door Wrangler Unlimited, the package adds unique leather seats and more off-road equipment, such as winch-ready bumpers. The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition will be available in the U.S. soon.

We think of Jeep as all-American. But the automaker's European sales are growing at a time when overall European sales are suffering. These updated models may help Jeep maintain its bright spot in an otherwise weak market.

What it means to you: Americans aren't the only ones who love Jeeps. The brand's popularity in Europe is growing too. Jeep's Geneva Auto Show display gives Americans a look at what's coming next, and at how it will improve the current Jeep lineup.
