7 REASONS WHY JEEP COMPASS TRAILHAWK IS THE BEST OFF-ROADING SUV IN INDIA

For the Price, it makes a Compelling Argument

This year 2020 was definitely an unsurfaced road, made with its own versions and variations of sand, riverbed, gravels and mud. Our sheer tolerance and capability of toughness, is helping us get through the pandemic. The perfect representation of our spirit in the year 2020 is this magnificent SUV called the JEEP COMPASS TRAILHAWK.

India has seldom explored the real off-roading SUVs. We have been bestowed upon with many pseudo SUVs in the past. But JEEP COMPASS TRAILHAWK is way more than you can fathom.

Without further ado, let’s check out the insane features of the JEEP COMPASS TRAILHAWK

(Keep reading till the end, as there’s a bonus feature, too.)

1. OFF-ROADING CAPABILITY

With 17” All-terrain tyres and a ground clearance of 205 mm, which is 27mm more than the JEEP COMPASS, Trailhawk becomes more off-roading capable than your usual Compass.

2. APPROACH AND DEPARTURE ANGLE

Who doesn’t like curves? No innuendos, I’m still talking about the vehicle.

With an approach angle of 26.5° and a departure angle of 31.6°, you no longer have to worry about any kind of terrain messing with either your front or back bumper. You can have a stress-free, nonchalant off-roading experience.

3. MATTE WRAPPED HOOD

Saving you from the evening sun glare which ricochets off of the front hood, JEEP makes sure you have an unhindered drive, out in the open, without missing out on the spectacular sight through the windshield.

4. SMART OFF-ROAD MANAGEMENT

JEEP COMPASS TRAILHAWK is boastful about its mind-blowing Active Breaking which essentially, manages power and distributes it throughout the vehicle. Especially in situations while driving on rocky terrain, it shuts the power down from the tyre which doesn’t interact with the ground and immediately directs it to the other three tyres for a better and quicker exoneration.

More-over the tyres have an open differential architecture which makes them capable to rotate at different speeds while treading on a difficult path.

5. ADVANCED FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE

Blessed with 4-wheel-drive function, which only comes in Trailhawk, and not in your regular Compass, off-roading on various paths like snow, sand, mud and rock (which are the 4 modes) becomes the vehicle’s headache even though you’re driving it.

6. HIGH MOUNTED AIR FILTER

Worrying about water going in the engine while crossing a river is so 2019. This vehicle has a high mounted air filter with water wading depth of 483mm so you no longer have to worry about the air intake getting affected.

Whoever thought investing in a JEEP COMPASS TRAILHAWK would be like investing in a canoe in disguise?

7. 9-SPEED TORQUE CONVERTER

Here comes the king of all features, a Torque Convertor 9 Speed Gear Box. Trailhawk doesn’t come in the petrol variant, but even in the diesel variant, it comes with a 2-litre-4-cylinder Diesel Engine. This diesel engine is the famous Fiat Multijet engine which is also supplied to Tata for it's Harrier and MG to use in it's Hector. This engine produces 173BHP and 350Nm. It surely is a revolver with missiles for ammunition, the most powerful in its class. You simply get the best of both worlds.

  • If you consider just going the off beat path then it's alright. On a proper trail, it won't be the best (not saying it's useless; it will hold it's own). But I'll not go so far to say it's the best off-road SUV in India. I'd rather have the latest Thar. Having said that, it offers a great mix of on road creature comforts along with decent off road capability. I would really be wary of plunking 27 big ones on this though.
