Jeep India is still basking in the success of the new Jeep Compass. Jeep and its parent company FCA are buoyed by the impressive sales and growing demands for the Compass SUV, and planning to offer more products in India to boost sales further. However, apart from other products, Jeep is also planning to expand the lineup of the Compass in India to make the most of the success of the SUV and also to draw new customers. As per the latest reports, Jeep is planning to introduce the Compass Trailhawk top-end trim in this country.
The Jeep Compass is the first ever Jeep product to be locally manufactured in India and India is also the production hub for the Compass for all the global right-hand drive markets. However, the Compass range topping variant, the Trailhawk which is the toughest off-road focused model in the Compass range is not yet available for sale in India. The Compass Trailhawk version is currently being manufactured in India at FCA’s Ranjangaon plant, near Pune for the other export markets, but not for the domestic market. Now, Jeep India has decided to launch this top trim of the Compass in the Indian market as well, and it is likely to launch within 2018.
