2017 Jeep® Compass delivers a premium driving experience – by Design!

On any given day, where do you spend most of your time? Chances are good it’s one of three places: at home, at work or in your vehicle.

Turning a significant slice of your day into time well spent takes on new importance.

In the FCA Product Design Office, the Advanced Color & Materials team embraces that creative challenge with each new vehicle portfolio they work on. For the launch of the all-new 2017 Jeep® Compass, the team took their time crafting a fresh, unique interior space that would instantly say ‘love at first sit’ to would-be customers.

La Shirl Turner, who heads up the Advanced Color & Materials Design team, says creating just the right interior for the Jeep Compass involves patience, persistence and, perhaps most of all, the desire to make the customer feel like the experience of driving the 2017 Jeep Compass is time well spent.

Hi, I’m Betty Carrier Newman. I know – three names! Just who does she think she is? I’m a native Michigander; therefore, I love all things outdoors, like hiking and off-roading. I work in Communications with the Digital Media team. Some days I produce video shoots, write scripts, voice and edit video for features to post to our corporate and social media sites. Other times I’m strategizing with the brands I support – Ram, Jeep and Corporate – to come up with attention-grabbing ways to tell their unique stories. Then there’s the travel – to places like Moab, Utah, and the Rubicon Trail in California – to shoot (and enjoy) awesome off-road adventure that I then turn into exciting videos to post on our sites. Routine? Definitely not in my world! Challenges, creativity, cool cars and trucks, exciting places – yeah, they’re in there! Oh, the three names? In an earlier life I was hired as the first major-market female TV co-anchor for the NBC affiliate in Detroit – Channel 4. My name was Betty Carrier back then – until I married and added the ‘Newman.’ That’s my story and, yes, I’m really enjoying my FCA ride!
