The first spy pictures of the upcoming Jeep 7-seater SUV (codenamed – Jeep Low –D) have emerged on the web. The heavily camouflaged test mule managed to cover exterior design details of the vehicle. Though, it looks bigger than the 5-seater Jeep Compass.
Based on the Small Wide platform, the new Jeep 7-seater SUV is likely to get different steering gear and suspension unit than its younger sibling.
With modified platform and bigger dimensions, the new Jeep SUV will ensure more cabin space for occupants. Its wheelbase is expected to be around 2.80m. The SUV will have an additional third-row of seats to accommodate more passengers. Read – New Jeep SUV To Challenge Hyundai Venue In India
As of now, the design and interior details of the new Jeep 7-seater SUV are scanty. Though, it’s likely to feature slightly tweaked headlamps, new front and rear bumpers, larger C-column and revised taillamps. The interior layout might be similar to the Compass, but it will certainly have more features to offer.
On the engine front, the new Jeep 7-seater SUV is likely to get a new 1.3L, 4-cylinder turbocharged MultiAir 16V engine featuring electrically control valve opening. It (Europe-spec) pushes out a peak power of 180bhp with torque between 225Nm – 245Nm. Transmission on offer might include a 6-speed manual and a 9-speed ZF-sourced automatic unit.
