Jeep India has launched a new edition of its most affordable SUV. The Compass Bedrock edition will be available in limited numbers and only with a diesel engine. The Bedrock is based on the base variant of the Compass - Sport, but comes with a list of new equipment and cosmetic upgrades to the inside and out. The new edition has been launched to mark the sale of 25,000 units of the Compass at a price of Rs 17.53 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Based on Jeep Compass Sport trim, the Bedrock edition will be available in three colour options - Vocal White, Minimal Grey and Exotica Red, with black 16-inch alloy wheels, decals on the doors, black roof rails and a 'Bedrock' logo on the boot lid.
On the inside, the Compass Bedrock limited edition will come with a 5.0-inch infotainment system that doubles as a screen for the reversing camera with dynamic guidance, 'Bedrock' seat covers and new floor mats.
In terms of safety, Jeep Compass Bedrock comes with dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD, stability and traction control, four-wheel disc brakes, power adjust and folding wing mirrors and an electric parking brake as standard equipment.
The limited edition Compass Bedrock will be available only in one engine option - a 173hp, 2.0-litre diesel engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission, sending power to the front wheels. In terms of pricing, the Bedrock is positioned between the Sport (Rs 16.55 lakh) and Longitude (Rs 17.87 lakh) trims.
Several reports and spy shots also suggest that the Jeep Compass Trailhawk edition is expected to launch in India this year. The new Jeep Compass Trailhawk variant is more off-road biased than the regular model and hence, looks bolder than the latter. Click the link above to read all about it.
