Jeep is about to launch the new Trailhawk variant of the Compass SUV in July 2019. The carmaker has officially opened pre-bookings for the first diesel-AT Compass with a refundable deposit of Rs 50,000 at all its showrooms.
The Trailhawk is the most capable off-roader variant of the Jeep Compass with its revised front and rear bumpers and added features. It will be powered by a BS6 2.0-litre diesel engine paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission, producing 173PS of power and 350Nm of torque. It will be the first BS6-compliant offering in the mid-size SUV segment. As an off-road specialist variant it also gets 4WD low, new ‘Rock’ mode for the Selec Terrain system and additional ground clearance.
In terms of comforts and features, the Trailhawk is specced similarly to the current top-spec Limited Plus 4x4 variant, but with a black leather interior and red accents in the cabin. Jeep is expected to price the Compass Trailhawk upwards of Rs 25 lakh, which is a significant premium over the Limited Plus 4x4 variant that costs Rs 23.11 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
