Bookings open for Fortuner rival Jeep Meridian from 1st week of May

After its launch in the Indian market, which is expected by the end of May, the Jeep Meridian will compete against the Toyota Fortuner and the MG Gloster.

Bookings for the Jeep Meridian SUV will begin in the first week of May, according to Jeep. The SUV was previously unveiled, with a launch date set for the end of May and deliveries beginning in the third week of June. The Jeep Meridian is based on the Compass, which is worth noting. The SUV, on the other hand, will be available only in diesel.

The Jeep Meridian has major changes to accommodate the extra row of seats, despite sharing its underpinnings with the Compass. There are also design changes to give it a distinct appearance. The Meridian is clearly longer, taller, and wider than its sibling on the scale, demonstrating the difference between the two SUVs.

The body panels on the Meridian are all new, and the overall design is reminiscent of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee L that is being sold internationally. The Meridian’s longer rear overhang and taller tail section indicate the presence of a third row of seats.

The car’s interior details have yet to be released, but it is expected to have a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster. It will also feature a 10.1-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, powered front seats, six airbags, a 360-degree camera, wireless charging, and dual-zone climate control, among other features. Traction control, ESC, hill start and descent control, and selectable drive modes are also included.

A single 2.0-litre four-cylinder Multijet turbo-diesel engine with 170hp and 350Nm will power the Meridian. It’s the same engine that powers the Compass, but it’ll be tuned for Meridian to produce more power to match the SUV’s size.

The engine will be mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 9-speed automatic transmission; manual models will only be available with front-wheel drive, while automatics will be available with all-wheel drive as well.

Because the SUV is manufactured in India, it will be reasonably priced. Furthermore, given the Jeep Meridian’s competition in India, which includes SUVs such as the Toyota Fortuner and the MG Gloster, it must be reasonably priced.
