Jeep Compass Trailhawk 4x4 AT spied


The Trailhawk is an off-road oriented variant of the Compass which was launched in India last year. Latest spy images reveal the Compass Trailhawk without any camouflage. The front of the Trailhawk gets a different bumper with two exposed tow hooks at the bottom and a skid plate. The ORVM housings are black and it has a matte black decal on the bonnet. It gets 4 parking sensors at the front unlike the regular Compass and a 'Trail Rated' badge can be seen on the fender.

The rear of the Trailhawk is similar to the standard Compass except for the red exposed tow hook placed on the left of the bumper and the 'Trailhawk' badge on the tailgate. It has 6 parking sensors in the rear, 2 more than the regular Compass. The car is equipped with dual tone 17-inch alloy wheels with 225/60 profile Falken H/T (Highway Terrain) tyres. The Trailhawk is likely to be offered in dual-tone colour schemes, the spotted car however has body coloured roof and no exterior chrome trim.

The cabin layout of the Trailhawk is similar to the standard SUV. It has an all-black interior with a three-spoke steering wheel, a twin-pod instrument cluster and a touchscreen infotainment screen in the centre. The automatic gear lever has a red trim around the boot.

The Compass Trailhawk will likely be offered with the same 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine from the outgoing Compass. It will likely be mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox. Just like the international model, the SUV will come with Jeep's Active Drive Lock 4x4 System with four-wheel Low mode and rear locker. The Selec-Terrain system has 5 driving modes - Auto, Snow, Sand, Mud and Rock. Media reports suggest that Jeep would be launching the Trailhawk in India later this year, but the company hasn't officially revealed details of the India-spec Trailhawk yet.
