Jeep is an American automobile manufacturer that has quickly made a name for themselves in the Indian market as well. The brand sells cars that specialize in off-road activity and are built to take on the toughest of terrains with ease. Originally, Jeep was solely a military vehicle manufacturer but soon launched a number of SUV’s that were targeted to the common public. With the competition in the industry already so fierce, Jeep is ready to launch its newest lineup of cars into India in 2020 – here is a closer look at them.
|Jeep Compass 2020||22.0 Lakh|
|Jeep Renegade||10.0 Lakh|
|Jeep 7-Seater SUV||30.0 Lakh|
|Expected Launch||July 15, 2020|
|Engine||2.0L Multijet II Diesel, 1.3L 4-Cylinder FireFly Turbo Petrol|
|Transmission||6-Speed Manual, 9-Speed Automatic|
While the Jeep Compass has been available since 2017 and is the most old cars in the lineup, it was about time that the company added some much-needed improvements to it so it could go up against some of the competition. The 2020 Jeep Compass has already hinted at a number of changes from its look to the powertrains and interiors. As far as the exteriors are concerned, the Compass 2020 will not change a lot and could just include a sleeker design. The inside is where the Compass will most likely hold the majority of changes. An upgraded upholstery is expected to make its way into the car while other changes like ventilated seats, a heads-up display, and the inclusion of an eSIM technology could make the car very attractive. The Compass 2020 is expected to be powered by a 2.0L Multijet II diesel engine which will be mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. There will also be a petrol variant that will house the latest 1.3L FireFly Turbo petrol engine which will be fitted to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
|Expected Launch||July 20, 2020|
|Engine||2.0L Diesel, 1.4L Turbo Petrol|
|Transmission||6-Speed Manual, 7-Speed Dual-Clutch Automatic, 9-Speed Automatic|
Sitting below the Jeep Compass 2020 is the much-awaited Renegade, which shares a lot more than its platform – small wide 4×4. Under the hood, the Renegade is expected to come with the same 2.0L diesel engine as found on the Compass and will also have the same 9-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, there will also be a 1.4L turbo petrol variant that will be mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The Renegade, when launched, will house a plethora of features that will make it one of the best off-road SUVs on the market. Firstly, the car will come with a new 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system that will be connected to a premium set of speakers. On the front, the car will house LED headlamps with fog lights while the rear will be fitted with LED taillights. The hill descent control will give the car better control on slopes while the Forward Collision Warning-Plus technology activates the brakes when it recognizes the chances of a collision. Some of the other features on the Renegade are electronic rollover mitigation, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, lane sense departure warning, and blind-spot monitoring.
|Expected Launch||July 15, 2021|
|Engine||2.0L Diesel, 2.0L Turbo Petrol|
|Transmission||6-Speed Manual, 9-Speed Automatic|
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 1 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.
While Jeep has already been doing well in the country, we can expect the brand to move forward with these upcoming cars and take on bigger names in the segment like Ford and Toyota. Do these above-mentioned cars have enough to get you to prepare your RC transfer papers or are you looking for something more?
