After introducing two of its brand-new made-in-India SUVs Jeep Meridian and Jeep Grand Cherokee to the Indian markets this year, Jeep India has now launched its 2022 Jeep Compass Night Eagle edition. Earlier this year in February, the brand had brought back its Jeep Compass Trailhawk variant to the Indian markets. The Trailhawk trim reportedly received an overwhelming response, with its first batch having been sold out within just two months. It currently commands a waiting period of almost four months. And now the all-black themed 2022 Jeep Compass Night Eagle variant takes over the baton to continue taking the brand to new heights.
Commenting on the launch of the new Night Eagle in India, Mr Nipun J Mahajan, Head of Jeep Brand India, said, “The Jeep Compass Night Eagle brings a new level of Boldness and Elegance with its all-black styling. The high demand for the Trailhawk, which was sold out in two months of launch, is testimony to the excitement for the Jeep Compass range and we expect to see similar enthusiasm for the Night Eagle.”
The 2022 Jeep Compass Night Eagle sports its front grille, grille rings, 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lamp bezels, ORVMs and roof rails in a gloss-black finish. Speaking of its interiors, it features a piano black theme complemented by black cloth/vinyl seats with light tungsten stitching and black vinyl inserts for the door trim and IP. On the front of equipment, comfort and safety features, it offers a 10.1-inch infotainment system, a 7-inch instrument cluster, Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control, Hill Start Assist, All-Speed Traction Control System (TCS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), and Electronic Parking Brake.
Coming to the mechanical specifications of the 2022 Jeep Compass Night Eagle, it is offered with a 2.0L multijet turbo diesel engine (with a 6-speed manual transmission) and a 1.4L multi-air turbo petrol engine (with a 7-speed automatic transmission). The turbo diesel engine delivers an output of 168bhp and 350Nm of torque whereas the turbo petrol engine delivers 161bhp and 250Nm of peak torque. The Night Eagle is available in seven colours, namely Brilliant Black, Techno Metallic Green, Bright White, Exotic Red, Grigio Magnesio Grey, Minimal Grey, and Galaxy Blue.
The Night Eagle variant Jeep Compass price in India starts from Rs 21.96 lakhs (ex-showroom).
