Jeep Opens Pre-Booking Of Compass Trailhawk

  • Jun 12, 2019

Leading American carmaker Jeep has officially opened the bookings for the Trailhawk version of the Compass sports utility vehicle (SUV) which is set for its India debut next month. Intending customers can book the car for a refundable deposit of ₹50,000 at any Jeep dealership.

The Trailhawk is the most capable off-road vehicle in the Compass series and has revised back and front bumpers along with added features. The car is hauled by a 2.0-litre BS-VI motor which produces 173PS maximum power and 350Nm peak toque. The engine is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission (AT) system. The Compass Trailhawk is going to be the first BS-VI compliant car in the midsized SUV segment in India. Other features of the car include all-wheel drive, a ‘Rock’ drive mode, and enhanced ground clearance. The car has been manufactured by FCA India.

Announcing the opening of the bookings, president and managing director of FCA India Kevin Flynn, said that the Compass Trailhawk has been made for customers hunting for an exclusive and capable vehicle in the compact SUV segment. It’s the first SUV to be offered in India with a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel motor, he claimed, adding that the engine is already BS-VI compliant nearly a year before the new emission standards are set to be implemented.

The Jeep Compass Trailhawk retains the cabin from the standard model. However, the Trailhawk gets all-black upholstery, while other versions have a dual-tone finish. The Trailhawk shares most of its features with the Compass Limited Plus model. It gets a panoramic sunroof, six airbags, an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, and a dual-zone AC. The Trailhawk, however, misses out on auto headlamps, automatic rain-sensing wipers, and powered front seats that are standard features in the Compass Limited Plus.

The Jeep Compass Trailhawk is expected to command an ex-showroom price of ₹25 lakh.
