American SUV brand Jeep sells the Compass SUV as one its entry-level models in the United States. The company has put out three TVCs of the Compass, which show the capability of the SUV, as a tool for exploration, of both urban areas and the hinterland. Here are all three TVCs. You can watch it one by one.
In of the TVCs, Jeep shows the Trailhawk edition of the Compass going off the road and climbing a hill. This edition is not yet available in India but will soon be launched. The Jeep Compass Trailhawk variant will get many features that make it off-road ready.
The front and bumpers of the Compass Trailhawk get reprofiled for better approach, departure and breakover angles. The ground clearance goes up and the all wheel drive system gets specific modes for Slush, Rock and Ice. The SUV’s all wheel drive system also gets a hill descent control feature on the Trailhawk model. Jeep is likely to offer the Trailhawk variant with a new, 9 speed ZF-sourced automatic gearbox.
The Trailhawk variant will be the priciest Compass on sale in India, with prices likely to cross the Rs. 25 lakh mark. This will make the Trailhawk variant a niche product mainly for those who like going off the road. The engine of this variant will be the 2 liter turbocharged diesel with 170 Bhp of peak power and 350 Nm of peak torque.
The Compass sold in India is also available with a 1.4 liter turbocharged petrol engine that produces 160 Bhp of peak power and 250 Nm of peak torque. The Compass Petrol gets 6 speed manual and 7 speed twin clutch automatic gearbox option, but is front wheel drive-only.
