Accordingly those looking for an off-road focused, diesel automatic variant of Jeep’s midsize SUV have been following the news, waiting for an official confirmation about the Compass Trailhawk’s India launch. We can now confirm the Jeep Compass Trailhawk will launch before the end of July 2019.
Meanwhile to give you a recap, the Trailhawk is the off-road-focused version of the Jeep Compass. The ‘Trail-Rated’ badges it sports are there for a reason, as it gets Jeep’s Active Drive Low 4x4 system, which is essentially a system with a low-range, a rear locking differential, hill descent control and an additional Rock mode for the Selec-Terrain system.
Furthermore the Compass Trailhawk’s ground clearance is at 225mm, a full 20mm higher than the standard Jeep Compass, and it also gets reprofiled front and rear bumpers, which give it improved approach and departure angles. Also different is the positioning of the air intake; it is set higher now, giving the Trailhawk a water wading depth of 480mm, up from the standard Compass’ 405mm. And just to make it more off-road-ready, Jeep has equipped the Trailhawk with underside skid plates, all-season tyres and all-weather floor mats too.
