Overdrive's sources indicate that the Jeep Compass could be launched at an introductory starting price of Rs 16 lakhs.

Quote:
At this price the Compass will undercut the Hyundai Tucson by close to Rs 2 lakh. It may however be noted that the keyword here is ‘introductory’ and Jeep will increase the price of the Compass after a certain period.

The aggressive pricing is a result of Jeep’s decision to build the Compass at FCA’s sprawling Ranjangaon facility and localising most of the parts.

The Compass will be available in four trims- Sport, Longitude, Limited and Trailhawk. The latter will feature all the 4×4 bells and whistles, making it the most capable Compass for driving off-road. Jeep is expected to introduce the Compass with a 2-litre Multijet diesel that develops 165PS and 350Nm. The engine will be mated to either a six-speed manual or a 9-speed automatic, depending on the trim.

Thats quite an undercut over Tuscon considering that Jeep is believed to have only the 2Liter diesel engine for India and Tuscon diesel range starts at over 21.5L.

Correct me if I'm wrong about the powertrain assumption of Compass.

Also the fact that the Trailhawk edition coming to India is nice! I'm looking forward for a sub 25L 4WD Jeep

If thats true, this is killer pricing! I can imagine even the likes of Creta getting hit to some extent given how the Jeep brand resonates in our minds. Plus, this one looks handsome to say the least. Now they should ensure that there are enough showrooms to sell these & that the service stays in line with expectations! There will be people who will definitely want to get this to do what it actually can which means there will be some real need for TLC. It will be such a wasted opportunity if they launch this without full preparations on all aspects and lose the opportunity to build the Jeep brand.

In the interview with ACI, Kevin had clearly mentioned that the petrol motor will also be an option.

I wonder whether their Top Spec Jeep Compass Trailhawk 4x4 will be actually priced at about 25 lac. Im sure it will be around 25 lac ex showroom BLR...

I would imagine that they will price that variant to compete directly with the Yeti, the Tucson and the CRV etc because the Jeep brand does certainly command that much value for sure.

Much as I hate to say it, I would be pleasantly surprised if that particular variant comes in at any less than 30 lacs on road.

But then, personally I would much rather be inclined for sure, to buy a real Jeep, even a Made in India Trailhawk Jeep in definite preference to the Tucson or CRV or similar.

Lets wait and watch...

I have to agree , Trailhawk will be priced close to 30 lakhs on road considering the off-roading ability on offer in this version . It would still be a much capable vehicle & a much better choice than the Endeavour & Fortuner .However reliability is something which no one can vouch for in a Jeep .

I am sorry but did you mean Jeeps are not reliable?

From YouTube channel Trippers Cookers, whose spies have caught the Jeep Compass test mule in Pondicherry.

Shots include a clear interior pic.

Pardon the picture clarity.

What makes you think like this? Wrangler is what competes with Fortuner / Everest ( Endeavour) elsewhere. Moderator Anshuman had this last month - check below links

Off Topic: Is that your new Endeavour? Does it have any damage at the bottom due to beaching? Did you inspect after this?

Did you do this on Sand mode?

yes. Nothing, it's soft sand so the truck was sitting comfortably and got pulled easily with little efforts. It was probably let down by an inexperienced driver (me).

I used Sand mode, I think it holds gears longer and RPM's are little higher as well. I might get rid of the foot boards and get some customised sliders if this hobby continues, all thanks to our NCR members - Anshuman & Rohit
