Last year, Jeep announced its plans to introduce a number of newer models in the coming years for the Indian market, one of which included a 7-seater SUV. Although not much is known about the upcoming model, the company launched a similar car in the Chinese market called the Grand Commander and we can expect a number of features and specifications to carry over to the Indian-based variants as well. What we can also expect are the powertrain options to be similar to what is already available including the 2.0L diesel engine found on the Compass as well as the 2.0L petrol engine housed in the new Wrangler. The diesel variant will come with either a 6-speed manual or 9-speed automatic transmission whereas the petrol variant should carry a 9-speed automatic gearbox. In terms of looks, we don’t really know what this 7-seater will look like, but we can be sure of one thing – it will have 3 rows of seats which means it will be big. If you have a big family and are looking to get your hands on this vehicle, you might want to use a used car evaluation tool to help you sell your current car for a better price.

Unveiled at the Auto Expo 2020, the Tata Gravitas is expected to be the flagship model above the similar-looking Harrier.
