Jeep Compass Trailhawk has been spotted testing yet again in Pune. The bookings for the top-end variant had begun a long time back.
Jeep Compass Trailhawk is just months away from its launch and the SUV has been spied again. The Trailhawk is based on the Compass, the entry level SUV offering by Jeep.
The SUV was spotted on the roads of Pune and it bears camouflaged rear bumper, front fenders, bonnet and top half its bootlid. The car sported a bright red colour and the camouflaged parts will make the Trailhawk stand apart from regular Jeep.
The exteriors mostly look the same and the SUV rides on dual tone alloy wheels which are seen on the Limited plus variant of Jeep, dual tone colour roof, sharper rear bumper which will have tow-hooks which will increase the utility of Jeep Compass Trailhawk.
It will also get Trailhawk badges. If you look nibble closely, you may notice the ride height is increased. The ground clearance might be raised up to 225mm, better for off-roading.
The interiors of the Jeep Compass Trailhawk are likely to be the same with the black-ivory themes seen on road cars. However, with the new model, it may see an all-black theme but these are just our expectations. It will feature an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system which will host Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
It will also get a bigger MID, borrowed from Limited Plus variant, a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate control and much more.
Jeep Compass Trailhawk is likely to be powered by the same 2.0L Multijet diesel engine making 177bhp of power with a peak torque of 350Nm. It will be mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox. Yes, finally the convenience of an automatic gearbox with a powerful diesel engine is now offered by Jeep. It is expected to be equipped with a BS-VI compliance engine.
Jeep Compass Trailhawk will get an improved 4X4 driving modes which will now include a ‘Rock’ mode too. Apart from the ‘snow, auto, sand and mud’, the rock mode will drive the Trailhawk with hardcore offroading. The SUV also features a low-range gearbox and locking rear differentials for hardcore offroading.
The pricing for the Trailhawk will be around Rs 25 lakh (ex-showroom) and it will remain the most capable off-roader in the segment.
