Auto components India - - NEWS - ACI

Atruly global all-new com­pact SUV, the 2017 Jeep Com­pass, will be man­u­fac­tured in In­dia, China, Brazil and Mex­ico, for con­sumers in more than 100 coun­tries around the world. For the In­dian mar­ket, the 2017 Jeep Com­pass will be man­u­fac­tured at the Ran­jan­gaon, Ma­ha­rash­tra, fa­cil­ity of Fiat Chrysler Au­to­mo­biles (FCA).

The 2017 Jeep Com­pass ex­pands the brand’s global reach with an un­matched com­bi­na­tion of at­tributes that in­cludes legendary and best-in-class 4x4 of­froad ca­pa­bil­ity, ad­vanced fuel-ef­fi­cient pow­er­trains, pre­mium and au­then­tic Jeep de­sign, su­pe­rior on­road driv­ing dy­nam­ics, and a host of in­no­va­tive safety and ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy of­fer­ings. “Our all-new 2017 Jeep Com­pass en­ters an ex­tremely im­por­tant and grow­ing seg­ment world­wide, and does so with an un­matched list of at­tributes that in­cludes bench­mark 4x4 off-road ca­pa­bil­ity, ex­cep­tional on-road driv­ing dy­nam­ics, fuel-ef­fi­cient pow­er­trains, count­less ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy and safety fea­tures, all wrapped in a pre­mium, au­then­tic Jeep de­sign,” Mike Man­ley, Head of Jeep Brand, FCA Global, said. “Built around the world for cus­tomers ev­ery­where, Jeep Com­pass raises the bar in the com­pact-SUV seg­ment.”

The 2017 Jeep Com­pass, dur­ing its In­dia launch mid next year, will be avail­able in 3 trim con­fig­u­ra­tions. It liv­ers best-in-class off-road ca­pa­bil­ity, cour­tesy of 2 ad­vanced, in­tel­li­gent 4x4 sys­tems, each of which can send 100 per­cent of avail­able torque to any 1 wheel.

Com­pass boasts of a rigid foun­da­tion. The up­per body struc­ture and frame are en­gi­neered as a sin­gle unit for a stiff and more mass­ef­fi­cient struc­ture, and it is de­signed and built with an ex­ten­sive use of high­strength steel and lib­eral use of struc­tural ad­he­sives. More than 65 per­cent high-strength steel is used for max­i­miz­ing ve­hi­cle dy­nam­ics and crash per­for­mance while op­ti­miz­ing weight ef­fi­ciency.

A to­tal of 5 en­gines, 3 ga­so­line and 2 diesel, will be of­fered, across dif­fer­ent mar­kets world­wide. In­dia will get a petrol and a diesel pow­er­train in man­ual and au­to­matic trans­mis­sion op­tions.
