FCA India today announced that the entire Jeep Compass range has been upgraded with Bharat Stage VI (BS6) engines. Local production of the BSVI range has already begun in its Ranjangaon manufacturing facility. The upgraded SUV range will be available to customers with both BS6 petrol and diesel engines options, with immediate effect.
Dr. Partha Datta – President and Managing Director, FCA India said,
We were the first OEM to roll out a BSVI powertrain in the premium compact SUV category in June 2019 and now, in eight months, our entire Jeep Compass range is BSVI compliant. There is a marginal price revision across the range owing to significant technological upgrades in both our petrol and diesel engines. However, we have loaded our trims with additional equipment, which offers abundant value to the customer.
The Jeep Compass BSVI price increase will range from INR 25,000 to INR 110,000, from the base Sport to the top-end Limited Plus and will be available with upgraded petrol and diesel engine options in choices of automatic as well as manual transmission. Despite this technological upgrade, the Compass will continue to deliver in performance. There will be no change in specifications or configurations of both the engines.
The BSVI 2.0-litre Multijet II turbo diesel workhorse is capable of being run on BSIV diesel until BSVI quality is freely available in India. The ‘urea’ technology that FCA engineers have adopted, makes this possible and ensures peace of mind to customers while driving out to even the remotest part of the country without worrying about the quality of fuel available there. This engine is designed to cleanse itself on the go, without external intervention, thanks to the urea technology used. Urea, which can be used only in diesel powertrains, can be filled/replenished via a separate nozzle provided next to the diesel filler nozzle, in the fuel filling section in the vehicle.
