MUMBAI: FCA India, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, has announced that it will roll out the Jeep Compass from its Ranjangaon facility by June 2017. The car and SUV manufacturer had invested $280 million in its Jeep Compass project.

FCA India has also announced two powertrain options that will be offered with the Jeep Compass — the 160+ HP, 250 Nm Multi-air petrol and the 170+ HP, 350 Nm, diesel.

The SUV will also come with options of the six-speed manual transmission and the seven-speed dual dry clutch technology automatic or DDCT. Both these engines will be scalable to BS VI regulatory requirements in India, a release said.

The Jeep Compass will come with the Jeep brand’s four-wheel drive capability called Jeep Active Drive. It is equipped with Selec-Terrain Traction Management System. The SUV will come with Driveline Disconnect Technology (DDT). It will offer the electric parking brake (EPB) across the range, the release added.

“The local production schedule of the Jeep Compass is firmly on track and we are all set to begin local production of the Jeep brand’s Global SUV by June this year. The Jeep Compass will come with several Industry-first features and will set benchmarks in the Indian SUV space,” FCA India president and managing director Kevin Flynn said.

One of the important highlights of the Jeep Compass is that both its exports as well as the India models will be identical in terms of build and quality. “We will export to international right-hand drive markets from India,” Flynn added.
