It's supposed to be launched in the first quarter, so I guess we are coming close. But also some rumors that they are interested in reducing the price, so dropping some of the luxury features. Hope they don't drop the panoramic sunroof, which it is rumored to have. And of course, hope they don't do an Alturas and price it too high!

So what were their thoughts? Any idea what offroad specs the Indian version will get? All of them or only a few?

Did you by any chance see or notice any fresh equipment apart from the off-road gear for the new variant?

Also what opinion did the testing officials give about the vehicle?

Promised not to reveal what was discussed actually. However couple of observations;

1) Trailhawk usually is supposed to be 20mm taller, but strangely this mule didnt look taller than the compass' we see currently on road.

2) This mule was being driven very slowly (even on empty roads) probably the testers were trying to replicate traffic like conditions.

Does this birdie have any information about the Jeep Wrangler JL launch date?

Jeep Compass Trailhawk: Production test run begins

Thanks to the Team-BHP fan (he prefers to remain anonymous) who sent this information in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this page!

Trial production of the India-spec Jeep Compass Trailhawk has reportedly begun. The SUV is being built at the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) plant at Ranjangaon near Pune.

The Jeep Compass Trailhawk. EDIT: Launched @ 26.8 lakhs-jeep_compass_trailhawk_05.jpg

In India, the Compass Trailhawk is expected to be powered by a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine that produces 171 BHP and 350 Nm of torque. There is no word yet on the transmission that will be offered on Trailhawk, however reports suggest that it could get a 9-speed automatic and the Selec-Terrain 4WD system.

The made-in-India Compass is also exported to international markets. The carmaker is likely to introduce an 'S buzz' variant featuring a slightly different interior and new 19-inch alloy wheels for export markets.

FCA could introduce the Compass facelift in 2020 or 2021. The updated version is likely to get an automatic parallel parking feature.

Rumour: Jeep Compass Trailhawk bookings to open in June 2019

According to a media report, bookings for the Compass Trailhawk are likely to open by mid-June 2019. The SUV could be launched in July this year.

As reported by us earlier, trial production of the India-spec Compass Trailhawk has already commenced at the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) plant at Ranjangaon near Pune.

The Jeep Compass Trailhawk. EDIT: Launched @ 26.8 lakhs-jeep_compass_trailhawk_05.jpg

The Compass Trailhawk is expected to be positioned at the top of the Compass line up. It is expected to feature redesigned bumpers for improved approach and departure angles and higher ground clearance compared to the standard Compass. It is also likely to get painted tow hooks and a matte black decal on the bonnet.

The Compass Trailhawk is likely to be powered by a BS-VI compliant 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine that produces 171 BHP and 350 Nm of torque. The engine could be mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission and Selec-Terrain 4WD system.

Is FCA bringing in a new transmission in place of ZF 9-Speed which is on sale in other markets ? or is the 4*4 system of different specification ?

If not, i'm not able to understand the delay ! They already have the Euro VI engine, Transmission and 4*4 hardware. They could've launched this long back !

I presume, adapting Euro VI engine to BS VI norms shouldn't be time consuming. (After accounting for difference in Fuel quality etc.,)

Now that is one desirable Jeep..proper hardware and the subtle visual differences are oh-so-wow!!
This would be one for the proper off road enthusiast. The long term vacuum shall be fulfilled. I cannot comment on the prospective sales but Jeep will surely tug the hearts of the die hard enthusiasts with this offering. I sincerely hope it does not go down the road of FCA's prior halo/pseudo halo offerings like the Abarth Punto et al

Spotted this Trailhawk test mule in Pune today morning. It has bumpers wrapped. Looks similar to the ones spotted earlier as posted in this thread.

Nice leak but the biggest question for all those who are waiting remains unanswered still - is the diesel automatic finally coming with this? If not just a off-road version would make no impact whatsoever in India
