Jeep India's adventurous and go anywhere, do anything spirit
has earned the Jeep Compass Trailhawk the honour of becoming the first Indian
SUV to cross the Great Indian Desert in one go.
The expedition's mission was to showcase the Jeep Compass
Trailhawk's ruggedness and capability to navigate across the difficult terrain
of the desert without touching any tarmac. The Jeep Compass Trailhawk adorned
with the 'Trail-Rated' badge, accomplished the mission at hand with ease,
demonstrating a competent desert rig with off-road capabilities and reliability
to endure long and difficult journeys.
The Jeep Compass Trailhawk proved to be a reliable partner
over the 1,280-kilometer voyage from Sri Ganganagar, Rajasthan, to Kutch,
Gujarat. The Jeep Compass Trailhawk was challenged to its limit over the three
day trip in the arid desert’s tough conditions over varied terrain and extreme
weather conditions with temperature ranging from over 40°C in the day to
near-freezing temperatures at night. The terrain of the Great Indian Desert is
covered by shifting sand dunes that get sediments from the alluvial plains and
the coast and rocky features, which the Jeep Compass Trailhawk managed
effortlessly, owing to its salient features such as the first-in-segment 'Rock
The adventurous Jeep Compass Trailhawk travelled through
Alissar, Bikaner, Dhani, Army dunes, Small Rann, Kala Dungar, Virgin Dunes,
Barner, Jaisalmer, Rann of Kutch, Sandstones, as well as arid regions of
undulating sand hills, and many more unidentified and abandoned routes, adding
to the challenges.
Despite the rocky cliffs, darkness, and dust, Abhimanyu
Alsisar enjoyed this voyage thanks to the unparallel comfort and convenience
offered by off-roader. The Jeep Compass Trailhawk's trustworthy companionship
allowed the expedition to go longer, discover new terrain, and marvel at the
beauty and adventure of India's unique surrounding landscape.

Compass Trailhawk across the Great Indian Desert, Nipun J Mahajan, Head of Jeep
Brand India, remarked, "The Jeep Compass Trailhawk epitomises the Jeep
brand's core DNA: an insatiable thirst to explore and go on exhilarating
adventures and in this case, the SUV did not traverse tarmac even once. With
the challenges we placed before the Jeep Compass Trailhawk, it proved and
established itself as a bonafide off-road SUV. The Jeep Compass Trailhawk's
features and capabilities will certainly make it the most preferred SUV for
off-roading aficionados and adventure seekers."
The Jeep Compass Trailhawk is a versatile trail rated
variant of the Jeep Compass equally capable for onroad and offroad adventures.

higher suspension, as well as the 225/65R17 all-terrain tyres, make it ideal
for off-roading voyages. They also provide a better grip on a range of terrain,
including sand, mud, snow, and even rocks.

badge, which signifies exceptional off-road performance in terms of traction,
ground clearance, manoeuvrability, articulation, and water fording, as well as
a range of advanced off-road features and capabilities.
