2020 Jeep Compass Night Eagle special edition is expected to offer glossy black accents
The special edition of the 2020 Jeep Compass Night Eagle has been teased ahead of its impending debut. The pre-facelift version’s Night Eagle edition has been on offer in several international markets and this time Jeep describes it as the Compass’s “first global limited edition.”
We expect additional features such as the previous versions to feature the new version of Jeep Compass Night Eagle. For reference, the previous special edition featured strategic location gloss black finishes including 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels, an 8.4-inch U-Connect infotainment system (the facelifted compass features an updated system), special techno leather upholstery with contrast stitches, etc.
Limited version of the 2020 Jeep Compass Night Eagle is expected to have identical glossy black highlights and special livery. The teaser shows only the Night Eagle badge on the tailgate. One may also expect the special edition to include additional features as regular fitment including driving assistance systems.
Earlier this year the popular compact SUV got a facelift. Although the visual tweaks are hardly noticeable, it features a new 1.3-liter turbocharged petrol engine that replaces the 1.4-liter unit. The new engine comes in 120 hp and 150 hp avatars with 270 Nm of equal torque output.
It is claimed that the slightly downsized engine is 30 percent more powerful than the outgoing model. Transmission options include manual 6-speed and dual-clutch 7-speed transmissions. Hybrid variants will also be available in the future, using this engine in conjunction with an electric motor to produce a combined output ranging from 190 to 240 hp. The new Compass will only have hybrid models with all-wheel-drive capability.
The Europe-spec 2021 Jeep Compass comes with a 1.6-liter 120 hp diesel engine but most likely the Indian version will retain the more powerful 2.0-liter unit.
In India, the new Jeep Compass has already commenced production. The luxury compact crossover has recently received updates to BS6 and we expect the facelift version to be ready by the end of this year at some point. Given that the 2020 Jeep Compass Night Eagle is a global special edition, a few months after the facelifted version debuts here we expect to be introduced in India. India is, after all, one of the SUV ‘s prime manufacturing sites.
The Jeep Compass competes with the likes of Tata Harrier, MG Hector, and Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta fully loaded models in India. The company is also working on a version of 7-seater which has been spotted in Brazil.
