It is not just a Compass that has been stretched with that little
bit of extra room slapped on to the rear; quite a few body panels
in the Meridian have had to be modified. The third row of twin
seats in the cabin draws our attention as further evidence of
the lengthening. The Meridian's cabin has undergone the most
significant changes as a result of it.
The Meridian's third row is a little dismal. The floor is
extremely high, making entry and exit a little difficult. Even
in the second-row, however, has seats that are big enough for
three adults to fit comfortably, a roomy sensation from the
large windows. The Meridian gets all the features of the Jeep
Compass and basically the same interior.
There is only one engine available for the Jeep Meridian, and it
is a diesel. The Meridian's size and weight make the diesel's
torque delivery at lower rpm levels and better usability at
slower speeds the ideal choice, even if competing 3-row SUVs in
smaller and more affordable price ranges use petrol engines.
This diesel engine is believed to improve the car's handling and
comfort when driving off-road as well.
The same 2-liter multijet II turbocharged diesel engine from the
Compass, in the same state of tune, is provided for the new 3-
row Jeep. The engine produces the same 350Nm of maximum
torque and 170hp of maximum power. The top-tier Meridian
Limited 4X4 (four-wheel drive) model may be ordered with
only the automatic transmission, whereas the 6-speed manual
or the 9-speed automatic transmissions are available for the
4X2 version.
