The C-SUV will replace the Liberty and Compass models.

Brazil and India will be the primary production locations of the new Jeep C-SUV which will be positioned above the Renegade and below the Cherokee. Brazil will cater to the North and South America market, while India will cater to Europe and Asian markets.

The new C-Jeep is a global SUV. It would act as a single product successor for the Liberty and Compass models. Fiat-Tata JV plant at Ranjangaon will be expanded to accommodate the new Jeep’s production.

The recent spyshots show that the vehicle will continue to adopt a traditional boxy styling and trademark grill with vertical slots. The projector headlamps with integrated daytime running lights and LED taillights are also clearly visible in these set of pictures.
