Everything you need to know about the new Jeep Compass Trailhawk facelift is right here.
While the Jeep Compass received a mid-cycle refresh last year, the off-road-focused Trailhawk variant was introduced in February. The Trailhawk costs Rs 1.38 lakh more than the fully loaded Model S trim, starting at Rs 30.72 lakh (introductory, ex-showroom, India).
We’ve compiled a list of all the major changes that come with the higher price tag.
1. The Styling has been Updated
The design is one of the major differences from the previous Compass Trailhawk. Jeep has fitted the updated Trailhawk with the Compass’s new headlights and grille. The Trailhawk’s design, on the other hand, has some key differences from the regular Compass, such as re-profiled front and rear bumpers for a more rugged look, a new hood decal, ‘Trail-rated’ badges on the front fenders, a red tow-hook at the rear, and all-new Trailhawk-specific alloy wheel design.
2. It Continues to Receive Upgrades that are Geared Toward Off-Road Use
The Trailhawk version of the Compass is distinguished by its more off-road-oriented setup. As a result, the new Compass Trailhawk comes standard with Jeep’s ‘Active Drive Low 4×4 system’ with Selec-Terrain drive modes, improved ground clearance (205mm), and improved approach, departure, and breakover angles, just like its predecessor (coming in at 30 degree, 24 degree and 34 degree, respectively).
3. Its Interiors are Refreshed
The cabin of the new Compass Trailhawk has been updated with the design and layout of the facelifted model, just like the exterior. When compared to the previous model, it has a free-standing touchscreen in the middle of the layered dashboard, a new steering wheel design, re-shaped AC vents, new switchgear, and a new centre console layout. Inside, the colour scheme is black with contrasting red stitching, and there are ‘Trailhawk’ logos on the seats to further distinguish it from the standard model.
4. It is Well-Equipped and will be The New Top-of-The-Line Model
The new Trailhawk is the new top-of-the-line trim in the Compass lineup, replacing the Model S. As a result, it comes standard with a 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with UConnect 5 and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, connected car technology, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, dual-zone automatic climate control, wireless charging, a 360-degree parking camera, leather upholstery, powered and ventilated front seats, and a panoramic sunroof.
5. It is Only Available in Diesel Power
The new Compass Trailhawk will only be available with the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, which produces 173 horsepower and 350 Nm. Power is sent to all four wheels via a 9-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine found in the standard Compass will not be available.
