To celebrate the Jeep Compass SUV’s success in India, the American SUV giant has launched the Compass Bedrock special edition model. Jeep has sold 25,000 units of the Compass in India, in less than a year of launch. Many more Compass SUVs have been exported to right-hand drive markets around the world including Thailand, Australia and the United Kingdom. Based on the Sport variant of the Compass Diesel 4X2 variant, the Bedrock adds aesthetic tweaks, both on the outside and the inside of the SUV. It’s priced at Rs. 17.53 lakhs, ex-showroom, Delhi.
Kevin Flynn, the CEO of Fiat Chrysler India, had this to say about the new SUV,
We are proud of what we have achieved with the Jeep Compass in less than one year of it being in the market. With the Jeep Compass, FCA India has secured its best sales within a 12-month period, in the last 10 years. We are celebrating our 25,000 sales milestone with Indian customers by giving them the Jeep Compass Bedrock Limited Edition. The Jeep brand has gained a considerable amount of recognition in India and we thank our customers who have placed their faith in our brand and products so far. The FCA team has been working tirelessly to strengthen that faith by providing them with a top notch after-sales service experience, which is backed by our Mopar promise.
