Jeep has brought out a new special edition, limited-run model of its Compass SUV, called the Bedrock edition, at Rs 17.53 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Only available with a diesel engine, the Bedrock is based on the base Sport trim but gets more equipment and cosmetic changes inside and outside. Jeep has launched the model to celebrate 25,000 units sold of the Compass.
On the outside, the Bedrock edition is available in three paint shades - Vocal White, Minimal Grey and Exotica Red - and gets black-finished 16-inch alloy wheels, decals on the doors and black roof rails. The insides of the limited-run SUV get Bedrock-badged seat covers, new floor mats and the 5.0-inch infotainment system doubles as a reversing camera with dynamic guidance.
As it is based on the Sport trim, the model gets standard equipment such as dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD, stability and traction control, four-wheel disc brakes, power adjust and folding wing mirrors and an electric parking brake.
The American brand only offers the Compass Bedrock edition with the 173hp, 2.0-litre diesel engine, which sends power to the front wheels via a six-speed manual transmission.
At this pricing, the special edition slots between the Sport (Rs 16.55 lakh) and Longitude (Rs 17.87 lakh) trims.
In India, Jeep is expected to bring the Trail Rated version of the Compass to India soon, and is also scheduled to bring in the Renegade facelift to the market in the future. The highlight of Jeep’s future plans is that it is working on a sub-4m SUV for our market.
