Jeep India has now revealed the specifications of the Jeep Meridian ahead of its launch in India by early May.

Meridian is the three-row, seven-seater iteration of the Jeep Compass and will be available in two top-spec variants at launch.

The Jeep Meridian is 4,769mm long, 1,859mm wide and 1,698mm tall.

This makes it 364mm longer, 41mm wider and 58mm taller than the Compass.

The Meridian has a 146mm longer wheelbase than the Compass, at 2,782mm. Ground clearance is 203mm.

The three-row Jeep SUV is powered by the familiar 2.0-litre Multijet diesel engine, improved here for better NVH although it still outputs the same 170PS and 350 Nm

The gearbox options remain unchanged too, with a six-speed manual and nine-speed torque converter on offer, the latter reworked for more responsiveness.

The Meridian will be available in 4x2 with both manual and automatic options and a 4x4 automatic option.
