Here’s a recent rendering of the upcoming 7-seater Jeep Compass. It is expected to derive power from a 2.0-litre diesel and 1.4-litre petrol engine.
Earlier, we reported that the American carmaker Jeep is working on the 7-seater version of Compass. We say it as the 7-seater Compass because it will share a lot of things with its 5-seater counterpart including the platform. Based on several spy pictures, here’s a new digital rendering of the 7-seater Compass, which is expected to be called ‘Commander’ in foreign markets and ‘Patroit’ in India. This digital rendering has been made by our in-house rendering artist, Soheb R. Kalania.
Earlier, Jeep said that the design of their upcoming 7-seater SUV will be inspired by regular 5-seater Compass. Moreover, based on new teaser images, we know that the upcoming Jeep SUV will borrow a few styling cues from the bigger Grand Wagoneer. The front fascia of the car will get a seven-slat grille along with sleek looking LED headlights. The test mule of the car snapped so far has hardly previewed the design of its front bumper. In the rendering, the car gets a new Jeep Compass facelift like bumper with a huge central air dam and fog lamps housed in a deep set of air dams on both ends. One of the most noticeable changes in the 7-seater version of Compass will be in its side profile. As one can see in the rendering, the rear quarter of the car has been completely revised with a larger rear overhang, but there will be an actual increase in the wheelbase of the SUV.
This also means that the rear doors will also be longer than the one offered with a 5-seater Compass. At the back, the Jeep SUV is likely to come with a more upright boot lid with revised LED taillights and a new bumper. Mechanically, it will derive power from a 2.0-litre, four-pot multi-jet diesel engine and a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol mill. Transmission duties will be done by a 6-speed MT or 8/9-speed AT. Once launched, it will rub shoulders with the likes of Toyota Fortuner, MG Gloster and Ford Endeavour.
