The 3-row Jeep Meridian SUV was awaited for a long time but now this wait is soon going to end with its launch in the Indian market. The company has announced that the pre-bookings for the Jeep Meridian SUV will start from May 3, 2022. However, the production of the car will start next month while deliveries will start from the third week of June 2022. It is believed that the price of Jeep Meridian can be between Rs 30 lakh and Rs 35 lakh.
The Jeep Meridian is based on the small-wide 4×4 platform, which could see a glimpse of the compass. This platform has been modified for an SUV with a longer wheelbase. The New Meridian is 4,769 mm long, 1,859 mm wide and 1,682 mm high. Its wheelbase is 2,794 mm. The wheelbase has been extended by 158 mm for a longer body. In comparison to the Compass, the new Meridian is 364 mm longer, 41 mm wider and 42 mm higher.
Jeep is powered by the Meridian 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine, which is also in the Compass SUV. This engine generates 170bhp maximum power and 350Nm of torque. It will get a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. Front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive (AWD) systems will be mated to a 9-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
Jeep will initially offer a 7-seater version of it, while the six-seater unit will come at a later stage. In terms of safety, the new Jeep Meridian gets six airbags, traction control, electronic stability control (ESC), hill start and descent control, 360-degree camera and other features. The SUV may also get ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistant System).
It will also get features like wireless Apple CarPlay and 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto. Other features include electrically adjustable front seats, 10.25-inch digital instrument console, wireless phone charging, dual-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof, powered tailgate and 9-speaker alpine source audio system.
