The new Jeep 7-seater SUV will be based on the Compass.
Jeep recently confirmed a new sub compact SUV (codename – Jeep 526) and a 7-seater SUV (codename – Low-D) for the Indian market. While the former will sit below the Compass, the latter will be slated above the Compass. The new Jeep 7-seater SUV will be based on the monocoque chassis and share most of its components with the Compass.
While we don’t know exactly what the new Jeep 7-seater SUV will look like, a latest digital rendering gives us a fair idea about its design. Based on the Jeep Compass, the 7-seater SUV will have a slightly elongated rear session for accommodating the extra row of seats. The overall length will be increased; however, the wheelbase will remain the same. The SUV will carry the conventional Jeep design with boxy stance.
For power, the new Jeep 7-seater SUV will use the BS6-compliant 2.0L Multijet II diesel engine pushing out a peak power of 173PS against 350Nm of torque. Transmissions on offer might include a 6-speed manual and a 9-speed automatic unit. Rumour has it that it could be also offered with BS6 version of the 1.4L MultiAir petrol engine that’s good for 163PS and 250Nm. This gasoline motor could be paired to a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Read – Jeep Compass Facelift To Get A New Petrol Engine
