It seems like the American off-roading SUV manufacturer Jeep India is raising the price of its popular SUV Compass every day now. Recently Jeep India announced that it has hiked the price of the new facelifted Compass once again for the fourth time this year. According to the newly revised price list, the prices have gone up by Rs 1.8 lakh, depending on the trim selected for the new Compass. With this new price revision, the base model of the Compass which is the Sport 4×2 Petrol model will now cost Rs 20.89 lakh ex-showroom.
All Compass versions have had their prices raised by Jeep, with the 1.4L Petrol DCT Fifth Anniversary Edition seeing the largest increase of Rs 1.80 lakh.

Back in April of this year Jeep India also launched a new variant of the Compass SUV called the Night Eagle. The all-new model received a few minor cosmetic upgrades over the regular model. The Night Eagle comes with a glossy black finish for various exterior elements such as the front grille, alloy wheels that measure 18-inches, fog lamp surrounds, outside rearview mirrors, and roof rails.
Meanwhile, the interior is also finished in an all-black theme that does give a sporty vibe to the cabin. It gets vinyl seats finished in black and light tungsten stitching. There are also black inserts on the door pads. It continues to come with features like a 10.1-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, Hill Start Assist, Traction Control System, dual-zone climate control, Electronic Stability Program, Electronic Parking Brake etc.
Other Jeep India news includes the announcement that the new Grand Cherokee would be unveiled on November 11 and the company’s recent posting of a teaser of the next SUV on its website. In January 2021, the fifth-generation Grand Cherokee officially debuted abroad. And over two years later, the American OEM has finally made the decision to export it to India. The all-new SUV will be the company’s fourth model to be domestically built and its fourth vehicle to be sold in India. Jeep is more likely to release the Grand Cherokee’s regular five seats to the Indian subcontinent. In some countries, the Grand Cherokee is also available in an “L” variant that has three rows, however, it won’t be making its debut in India.
