Pune, 12 April 2017: Jeep Compass is all set to roll out from its Ranjangaon manufacturing facility by June 2017. Over US$ 280 million has been invested in the Jeep Compass project, which is expected to be one of the safest SUVs on Indian roads with several industry-first features.

Two powertrain options will be offered – the 160+ HP, 250 Nm Multi-air petrol and the 170+ HP, 350 Nm, 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.
