This time Jeep is all set to to export the made-in-India compass SUV to international markets like japan etc. The SUV is built at the FCA plant in Ranjangaon, which is also the mother plant for all right-hand-drive Compass units globally.And the most probable car which Compass is going to export is “THE NEW AVATAR OF JEEP COMPASS WHICH IS JEEP COMPASS TRAILHAWK“.
The Trailhawk is going to be the best choice of adventurers. Every model that Jeep builds must have a Trail Rated or Trailhawk version; the one which comes with the better off-road ability than the regular model and performs the best in these specific regions-traction, water fording, maneuverability, articulation and ground clearance.
What’s it like on the outside?
For the simple drivers, this might just be a regular Compass, but for those who love to ride like the pro or more inclined toward automotive,this is the best car for them and there will be no difficulty for us to make them understand what’s the difference between the parent car. The black bonnet decal, the red tow hooks and the badging are the right amount of deco to set it apart and give it that butch off-road appeal.
What’s it like on the inside?
Also it comes with some notable differences with the old model. The car we drove had Trailhawk logos embroidered on the seats, red trim bits around the cabin and an 8.4-inch touchscreen system;and the variant which is available for Indian market will be getting a 5.0 or a 7.0-inch screen. The Trailhawk specifications for India are still not known, however, it will get additional buttons on the four-wheel-drive selector to select four-wheel-drive low, for different indian regions specially for Indian markets.The rest of it is similar to the regular Compass, and that is a good thing.
Jeep has not declared the date of relaesing it in Indian market or even the specification of the car is not revealed yet, but we can expect this car in the nearly around the september of this year, priced at around Rs 24 lakh mark, which will be one level up than the parent model. However, it still remains as usable as a regular Compass, and if Jeep does kit it out with additional bits, like powered seats, for example, it could be an option for even the regular SUV prospect. Then there’s the likely powertrain combo. Currently, the diesel misses out on an auto gearbox and the Trailhawk’s likely diesel-auto combination could prove to be a draw. Thus, as things stand, the Trailhawk could be a great option for both, the adventure seeker and the armchair enthusiast too.
