The first and also the most important reason is the fact that the Trailhawk is a diesel automatic version in the Jeep Compass lineup. Specifically, it is powered by a 2.0-litre Multijet II motor which is good for a maximum power of 173 PS and a peak torque of 350 Nm. The engine is compliant to the BS-VI emission standards, which is also a reason for the price gap. The transmission duties are undertaken by a nine-speed torque converter.

These include Active Drive Low 4x4 system of Jeep with 20:1 crawl ratio, low range, hill-descent control and a new Rock driving mode added to the Selec-Terrain system. Moreover, the ground clearance which rises by 30 mm, the water depth wading depth ability which has been improved by 510 mm, the approach, departure and ramp break-over angles which measure 26.5 degrees, 31.6 degrees and 21.2 degrees also help further enhance the Trailhawk’s off-road capabilities.
