Back in August 2016, FCA brought the Jeep brand to India . The prices of the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee start at around Rs 56 lakhs, and hence they aren’t accessible to most car buyers. However, all of this is set to change with the launch of the 2017 Jeep Compass in India. The Jeep Compass being manufactured locally, will be launched in the third quarter of 2017 i.e around August this year. Jeep India has officially announced that the local manufacturing of its upcoming SUV has started.  The Jeep SUV is likely to be priced at around Rs. 20 lakh (ex-showroom). In this post, you can read about all details of the upcoming 2017 Jeep Compass India launch. We have also managed to grab a couple of spy shots of the upcoming SUV.
