Special edition Jeep Compass launched
Based on the Sport trim, the special edition is priced at Rs 17.53 lakh
Last year, Jeep unveiled its baby SUV, the Compass, which sent Shockwave across the compact SUV segment. The Compass is about to turn a year old, but celebrations have already begun. The American carmaker has sold 25,000 units of its baby SUV in less than a year. And to commemorate this, Jeep has launched a special edition christened ‘Bedrock’.
Based on the Sport trim, the special edition is available in three paint schemes – Vocal White, Minimal Grey and Exotica Red. Along with this, the other changes which the ‘Bedrock’ has received are 16-inch alloy wheels painted in gloss black, reverse parking camera, Bedrock-branded seat covers, black roof rails and new floor mats.
Mechanically, it remains unchanged. It is powered by the 2.0-litre turbo-diesel which produces 170bhp and 350Nm of twist. Power is sent to the front wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. In terms of safety, it is one of the safest compact SUVs out there. Don’t believe us? Well, here’s a detailed report of it getting five stars in the ANCAP crash test.
