New 2021 Jeep Compass for India revealed

New 2021 Jeep Compass for India revealed”

"While the Jeep Grand Cherokee interior has been synonymous with sophistication, our approach to the three-row version was to showcase distinguished details, handcrafted materials, and modern amenities that pair seamlessly with its tailored exterior". The price of the new Jeep Compass 2021 model is expected to be revealed near the scheduled launch next month.

Up front, the Compass retains the seven-box front grille but has been refreshed with chrome inserts. The glasshouse itself has been treated to a floating effect accentuated by the wide D-pillar.

The rear is pretty straightforward, with the narrow LED taillights deserving a mention as well as the chromed line that goes over the side windows only to dip down on the C-pillar and frame the lower edge of the tail window. The Summit rolls on 20-inch polished aluminium wheels, while the Summit Reserve pack brings 21-inch machined aluminium wheels with a mid-gloss Granite Crystal contrast finish. The system also supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Talking about the new seven-seat SUV, Jeep's head Jim Borrison affirmed: "Don't let the third row fool you, this Jeep is still capable".

As with all previous iterations of the Grand Cherokee, the L sits atop a unibody architecture, but one that has been heavily upgraded "to optimise ride, handling and quiet sound, while also reducing weight and improving fuel economy". And that's more than just mere marketing malarkey, the 2021 redesign truly putting the "grand" in Grand Cherokee. There are three 4x4 systems to chose from – Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II with a rear electronic limited-slip differential.

Another new addition to the Grand Cherokee is the Quadra-Lift air suspension with active damping. This system works automatically or can be controlled through five settings. Instrumentation remains the 8.4-inch screen here as standard, or an optional 10.1-inch unit. "The results reflect its premium characteristics, contemporary style and legendary capability that has defined the Grand Cherokee since its inception". New features like wireless charging have also been included. Talking about the Grand Cherokee L's, it features a subtle evolution in its design over the outgoing model.

Balancing its brand's requisite off-road brutishness with the luxury required from a flagship has always been the Jeep Grand Cherokee's forte. This tailors the SUV's powertrain, suspension, pedals, steering and safety systems for use in different conditions.

As for the engines, the familiar duo of the 3.6-litre V6 and 5.7-litre Hemi V8 petrol mills will be making a return largely unchanged, producing 216kW/348Nm and 266kW/529Nm respectively. Control knobs for the air-con and the circular periphery of the engine stop-start button are detailed with intricate striped pattern "fluting". Both are mated to an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission.

The engines have been unchanged and the 1.4-litre turbo petrol and 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine have been carried over in its BS6 form.
