Muscat: Dhofar Automotive (DA), the official distributor of Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Fiat, RAM, and Alfa Romeo vehicles in the Sultanate, launched the all-new Jeep Compass in a special ceremony at the DA showroom in Wattayah.

The event was attended by Mark Tomlinson, group general manager and Rhett Maxwell, the general manager of Dhofar Automotive, together with a number of Jeep fans, and was overseen by Rhett Maxwell, the GM of Dhofar Automotive.

The all-new Jeep Compass offers an unmatched combination of attributes that includes legendary and best in class 4x4 off-road capability, contemporary and authentic Jeep design, excellent on-road driving dynamics, open-air freedom and a full array of advanced user-friendly connectivity and safety technologies.

Commenting on the arrival and official launch of Jeep Compass in Oman, Maxwell said, “The all-new Jeep Compass is truly a huge step forward In terms of exterior and interior design; it has a fresh and attractive look, backed by new tech, such as the highly impressive new Uconnect infotainment system.”

“Mechanically, the 2.4-litre engine, mated to a 9-speed gearbox, is impressive both, in terms of performance and efficiency. More importantly, the Compass is a true Jeep sporting unparalleled off-road capabilities in its segment,” Maxwell added.

Powered by an economical, fuel-efficient 2.4-litre Tigershark petrol engine with MultiAir2 technology, it delivers 173 hp at 6,400 rpm, 237 Nm of torque. Superior on-road driving dynamics result from its architecture, fully independent suspensions, segment-exclusive frequency damping front-and-rear-strut system and precise electric power steering.

Compass, which features distinctive, contemporary design, with a wide stance and exceptional glass-to-wheel proportions, is immediately recognisable as a Jeep thanks to characteristic traditional design cues, such as the seven-slot grille and the trapezoidal wheel arches. Jeep designers even gave the legendary grille a fresh look by setting each of the individual chrome slots in gloss black. LED signature headlamp bezels featuring a black outline add personality and attitude to the face of the all-new Jeep Compass.

“The all-new Jeep Compass will be the best choice ever for the fan of small and economical SUVs. With its unmatched capabilities and competitive prices, which start from just OMR8,599, the Compass will definitely meet expectations of small families and enthusiastic youth alike. I would like to, therefore, invite all customers to visit their local Jeep showrooms to know more about this stunning model.”
