American SUV manufacturer Jeep has already confirmed the launch of facelifted version of their popular SUV Compass in the market. The SUV will get cosmetic changes to make it look more updated and relevant in the segment. What Jeep has also confirmed in the past is that they are working on a 7-seater version of the Compass SUV which is most likely to be called as Grand Compass. Jeep will be launching this SUV in the second quarter of 2021 and it has been caught testing under heavy camouflage a couple of times. Here we have a new render image from an artist that shows what the upcoming SUV could look like.
The artist behind this render image is Kleber Silva who has also created a render image for the upcoming Jeep Compass facelift. The image created by the artist is based on the Compass render that he had created earlier. It gets sleeker headlamps with LED DRLs in it. The front grille will be getting a matte black finish with all the chrome elements removed. The turn indicators are placed on the lower part of the bumper and the fog lamps are missing on this render. The area where generally, the fog lamp is placed gets a black garnish. The lower part of the bumper is also redesigned with a skid plate.
Coming to the side profile, The Grand Compass gets the badging on the lower part of the front door. It gets bigger alloy wheels in comparison to Compass and of course, the SUV is now longer than regular Compass. This is done to accommodate, the third row seat. The roof does not slope down as it would reduce the head space for third row passenger and at the rear, the tail lights look slightly different from regular Compass.
Jeep is currently working on this new SUV, which is code-named as Low D 3-row. It will be based on the facelifted version of the Jeep Compass and will be built in Jeep’s Ranjangaon facility. This means, Jeep will be pricing it competitively. It is expected to use the same engine and gearbox as in Compass and will be also be offering 4×4 option. The Jeep Grand Compass could take on the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour in terms of price and positioning.
