The Made-in-India Jeep Meridian has been unveiled in production form. However, the company has not revealed the official launch date yet. The SUV will arrive at the Jeep brand dealerships across India by mid-May. While the deliveries will commence from June 2022 onwards. The Meridian will be offered in both 4X4 AWD and 4X2 variants. 


“The Indian market has unique demands. With the Meridian, our engineering and design teams have delivered a striking product; with three rows while retaining the authentic Jeep DNA of adventure and capability. We are delighted with the outcome and firmly believe that the Jeep Meridian will set new benchmarks for the segment,” as commented by Roland Bouchara, CEO & Managing Director, Stellantis India.


The India-spec Jeep Meridian gets a similar dashboard layout as the Jeep Compass. However, the new SUV opts for a brown color scheme instead of an all-black look. Most of the features have been carried forward from the Compass. These include a 10.1-inch touchscreen unit, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, wireless Apple Carplay & Android Auto connectivity, dual-zone climate control, powered front seats, ESC, traction control, 360-degree parking camera, six airbags, and hill-start & descent control. The SUV also offers three selectable drive modes namely sand/mud, snow, and auto. Besides these, the vehicle also gets a powered tailgate and a 9-speaker audio system by Alpine. 


“The Jeep brand has been an icon for decades because it pushes the boundaries of capability, comfort and design. The Meridian with its distinctive demeanour, features a fresh yet iconic design, with thoroughly crafted details inside and out. A brand new member of the Jeep lineage that is emboldened by its confident stance and timeless road presence, the Jeep Meridian heralds an era of functional elegancy,” as commented by Ralph Gilles, Chief Design Officer and Member of the Executive Board, Stellantis N.V.


Performance-wise, the Jeep Meridian will come equipped with a 2.0-litre diesel engine. The power output and the peak torque have not been revealed yet. However, in the present state, the engine generates a top power of 169 bhp and a peak torque of 350 Nm. Transmission options will include a 6-speed manual with a front-wheel-drive (FWD) and a 9-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
