Jeep India is planning to hold an event in Pune on September 16, where they are expected to unveil a specially engineered SUV for the Indian market. The teaser released by Jeep suggests that the SUV may receive a mid-life facelift. Let’s take a look at the possible changes and updates that the company might introduce in the updated SUV.

★Jeep may add automatic transmission: After the implementation of BS6 Stage-2 norms, Jeep discontinued the petrol engine of the Compass, resulting in a significant increase in the price of the automatic transmission variant. To cater to customers who prefer automatic transmission, Jeep might introduce new lower variants with automatic transmission or add this feature to the existing lower variants.

★Compass can be introduced with 4×2 powertrain: Currently, the Compass is available in four trims, out of which only the Limited and S variants come with automatic transmissions. However, these variants also come with 4×4 capabilities, which significantly raises the price. It is anticipated that Jeep will introduce a new variant with a 4×2 powertrain to offer a more affordable option.

★Possible updates: Along with the introduction of new variants, Jeep might also update the Compass and Meridian with minor changes such as new bumpers, grille, and alloy wheels. There could also be some minor updates to the interior, such as new upholstery or themes.

★2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine: Currently, the Compass and Meridian models are only available with a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine, which generates 168bhp of power and 350Nm of torque. It can be paired with either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 9-speed torque converter automatic transmission.

In summary, Jeep India is gearing up to launch a specially engineered SUV for the Indian market. The company might introduce new variants with automatic transmission and a 4×2 powertrain option. Minor updates to the exterior and interior are also expected. The SUV will continue to be powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine.
