The only car largely responsible for FCA’s success in the Indian market is the Jeep Compass. Unlike the other Fiat-branded products — and even the more expensive Jeep CBUs — the Jeep Compass has managed to capture the market quite well. It’s also helped FCA India deliver the best sales in a 12-month period in the last 10 years. Production of the Compass began on June 1, 2017, and since its launch in July last year, the company has despatched more than 25,000 units in the Indian market and 8,000+ vehicles have been exported as well.
To celebrate the success, Jeep India has launched a special edition variant of the mid-sized SUV. It’s called the Jeep Compass Bedrock, is based on the Sport trim, and can only be specced with the 171-bhp 2-litre diesel engine in the 4×2 configuration. Standard features include reverse parking camera, 16-inch alloy wheels, side step, black roof rails, floor mats, etc.
There’s been some Bedrock branding done as well — decals, monograms, Bedrock-branded seat covers. Three colour choices are available, namely Vocal White, Minimal Grey, and Exotica Red.
FCA India’s President and Managing Director, Kevin Flynn said, “We are proud of what we have achieved with the Jeep Compass in less than one year of it being in the market. With the Jeep Compass, FCA India has secured its best sales within a 12-month period, in the last 10 years. We are celebrating our 25,000 sales milestone with Indian customers by giving them the Jeep Compass Bedrock Limited Edition. The Jeep brand has gained a considerable amount of recognition in India and we thank our customers who have placed their faith in our brand and products so far. The FCA team has been working tirelessly to strengthen that faith by providing them with a top notch after-sales service experience, which is backed by our Mopar promise. ”
