Jeep Compass 5th Anniversary Edition Unveiled
The Jeep Compass 5th Anniversary Edition has been teased by Jeep India, and it will soon be released. It will, however, only be offered in a small quantity. In India, the Compass SUV was introduced in 2017 and had a mid-life makeover in 2020.
Apart from the fact that it will have a unique “5th Anniversary Edition” logo, the teaser does not offer much about what might be new on this limited-edition model. The 5th Anniversary Edition may, however, receive exterior and interior upgrades if past special editions of the Compass are any indication.
For instance, the Compass Night Eagle Edition, which was introduced in April of this year, had new interior upholstery as well as many exterior gloss black visual upgrades. The Compass 5th Anniversary Edition might also receive a similar makeover and come in exclusive color combinations.
The Compass was the first Jeep to be locally produced in India, and it has since become the brand’s best-selling vehicle there.
The Jeep Compass 5th Anniversary Edition’s mechanical components are expected to be the same as those of the ordinary Compass model, as is the case with other special editions of the Compass. The Compass’s engine options include a 163 horsepower, 1.4-liter turbo-petrol, or a 173 horsepower, 2.0-liter diesel, both with manual and automatic transmission choices. The 4×4 system is only offered on the diesel-automatic models. Whether the 5th Anniversary Edition is available on all variations or just a handful is still up in the air.
Currently, the Jeep Compass costs between Rs 18.39 lakh and Rs 26.14 lakh (ex-showroom). The Compass 5th Anniversary Edition will likely cost a little more.
Currently, Jeep sells the domestically assembled Compass, Wrangler, and Meridian (a three-row Compass variant) in India. In the upcoming months, the company will also introduce the new-generation Grand Cherokee, which will be locally built in contrast to the outgoing model, which was offered as a CBU. According to Jeep, India would be the first market outside of North America to receive a locally assembled Grand Cherokee.
