SKF supplies Jeep Compass with wheel hub bearings


Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has selected manufacturer, SKF to supply front and rear wheel hub bearings for new Jeep Compass SUV. The new compact sport utility vehicle is equipped with SKF’s third-gen, premium quality, front and rearwheel Hub-Bearing Units (HBU3).

The HBU3 is a lightweight wheel bearing system combining high levels of performance with reduced friction. The system features a double-row angular contact ball bearing, optimised contact angles and post-assembly machined rotating flanges, which helps reduce vibrations and noise during braking to result in a more comfortable driving experience.

“Our SKF bearings are designed to meet robust FCA performance requirements and contribute to an efficient, comfortable and smooth driving experience,” said Andrea Reisoli-Matthieu, SKF Account Director for FCA. “We offer FCA value by providing a consistently high level of engineering competence and service delivery in each region.”

SKF is manufacturing the HBU3 for the Jeep Compass at its facilities in Busan, Korea, and Cajamar, Brazil. SKF will also supply engine and gearbox seals for the Jeep Compass.

The Jeep Compass agreement extends SKF’s relationship with FCA. The company already supplies parts to other FCA vehicles sold in Europe, Latin America and North America.
