Images of the production-spec Jeep Compass Trailhawk have surfaced online ahead of its expected launch in India this July. The bookings for Jeep Compass Trailhawk are expected to begin from next month at authorized dealerships across India. Meant for serious off-roading, it will come with Jeep’s hardcore Active Drive Low 4x4 wheel-drive system with a low range, rear locking differential and hill descent control. It will additionally get five driving modes-Snow, Mud/Sand, Sport, Auto and Rock mode.
Styling changes will be made to the exterior and interior to match its rugged character. The bumpers at both ends get a restyling and improved approach as well as departure angles. Air-intakes have been set higher for better water wading abilities up to 480mm. Underside skid plates, tow hooks in red, black anti-glare decal on the bonnet and a ‘Trail-rated’ badge round up the styling tweaks on the off-road focused variant.
The interior will receive Trailhawk badging on the seats, etc. There will be a cruise control, all-weather floor mats, a large touchscreen infotainment system, navigation system, a panoramic sunroof and a new instrument cluster with coloured multi-info-display.
Under the hood, it gets the powerful BS VI compliant 2.0-litre oil burner. This engine makes 170hp and 350 Nm torque in the Europe-spec version. As for transmission, expect it to get a nine-speed automatic gearbox. In addition to the above changes, the off-road-specific variant will sit 20 mm higher than the standard Compass at 225 mm. With these changes, the Jeep Compass Trailhawk is expected to be priced much higher than the standard version.
