American SUV manufacturer Jeep has been working on launching a facelifted version of Compass in the market. It will be launched in the market early next year. Jeep Compass was the first product from the manufacturer for Indian market and was a huge success. It competes with cars like Tata Harrier, Hyundai Creta in the segment. Jeep India is now planning to launch a special edition version of Compass in the market before the facelift. Jeep India recently posted a tweet that says that they will soon be bringing the ‘Night Eagle’ version of Compass SUV. This special edition Compass has already been on sale in select international markets from last year.

The Night Eagle edition will be getting all-black treatment, giving it a mean look. The chrome elements on the SUV will either be removed or completely blacked out. It will have blacked out front grille, fog lamps garnish, window lines, alloy wheels and so on. It will help give it a bit more butch and aggressive stance than the regular version. As the tweet shows, Night Eagle badging on the tail gate of Compass will be one thing that differentiates the new variant from the other trims of the SUV.
On the inside, the same kind of ‘all-black’ treatment is expected. The interiors will be getting an all-black dashboard with gloss black panels at places. The seats will all be given a black treatment as well. The upholstery will be coming with a contrasting stitching to give it a more upmarket and sporty appeal.
Apart from these cosmetic changes both on the outside and inside, the Jeep Compass will continue to offer all features like a touch screen infotainment screen that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Push button start, keyless entry, dual zone climate control and so on. The Night Eagle edition will be powered by the same engine as regular Compass. It will be offered with a 1.4 litre turbo petrol engine generating 160 PS of peak power and 250 Nm of peak torque, and a 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine that churns out 170 Bhp of peak power and 350 Nm of peak torque. Both engines are BS6 compliant and are available with manual as well as automatic gearbox options. Jeep will also be launching a 7-seater version of Compass which is likely to be known as ‘Grand Compass’. The Grand Compass will make its debut in India next year, after the facelifted Compass’ launch.
