Compass from FCA India stable is all set to hit the Indian roads by June 2017.
The company will roll out Jeep Compass from its Ranjangaon manufacturing
facility. This facility is owned by Fiat India Automobiles Pvt Ltd, a 50:50 JV
between Fiat and Tata Motors. FCA India has invested US$
280 million (approx Rs 1809 crore) in the
Jeep Compass project.
The SUV will be available in two engine options - 160+ HP, 250 Nm
Multi-air 1.4 litre petrol and the 170+ HP, 350 Nm, 2 litre Diesel. The SUV
will also come with options of the 6-speed manual transmission and the 7-speed
Dual Dry Clutch Technology Automatic or DDCT. Both the petrol and diesel
engines can be scalable to BS VI regulatory requirements in India.

with Jeep Active Drive, a
four-wheel drive capability which is
equipped with Selec Terrain Traction Management System. The SUV will come with
a Driveline Disconnect Technology (DDT) which disconnects the drive that goes to

assists safer driving.
