The Jeep Compass 5th Anniversary Edition will soon Debut in India
Jeep’s first locally assembled model is the Compass; a special edition model will be available in limited quantities.
Jeep India has teased and will soon launch the Compass 5th Anniversary Edition. However, it will only be available in limited quantities. In India, the Compass SUV was introduced in 2017 and received a mid-life facelift in 2020.
- Will get ‘5th Anniversary Edition’ logo
- Available in limited numbers
- Likely to remain mechanically unchanged
Anticipated to Receive Cosmetic Upgrades
The teaser reveals little about the new features of this limited-edition model, other than the fact that it will feature a special “5th Anniversary Edition” logo. Nevertheless, based on previous special editions of the Compass introduced throughout its lifetime, we can anticipate exterior and interior upgrades for the 5th Anniversary Edition.
For instance, the Compass Night Eagle Edition introduced in April of this year featured several gloss black exterior cosmetic updates and new interior upholstery. The Compass 5th Anniversary Edition may also receive a similar treatment, and it may also be available in a variety of unique hues.
The Compass was the first Jeep model to be locally assembled in India, and it has since become the manufacturer’s best-selling vehicle in the country.
Likely to Stay Mechanically The Same
As with all special editions of the Compass, the 5th Anniversary Edition will likely retain the same mechanical specifications as the standard model. The Compass is equipped with either a 163hp, 1.4-liter turbo-petrol engine or a 173hp, 2.0-liter diesel engine, both of which are offered with manual and automatic transmission options; the 4×4 system is only available on diesel-automatic models. Uncertain is whether the 5th Anniversary Edition will be available for all variants or only a select few.
Currently, Jeep Compass prices range between Rs 18.39 lakh and Rs 26.14 lakh (ex-showroom). The Compass 5th Anniversary Edition will likely be priced slightly higher.
Jeep India Line-Up
Jeep currently sells the locally assembled Compass, Wrangler, and Meridian (three-row version of the Compass) in India. In the coming months, the brand will also introduce the new-generation Grand Cherokee; however, unlike the previous generation, which was sold as a CBU, the new Grand Cherokee will be locally assembled. India will be the first market outside of North America to have the Grand Cherokee assembled locally, according to Jeep.
