Jeep Meridian facelift to come with minor styling tweaks and more features

Jeep Meridian facelift has been spotted testing for the first time. The prototype is heavily camouflaged, hiding the new styling details underneath. It is expected to launch by the festive season this year with visual tweaks and new features.

The front profile will get updated headlights with revised LED DRLs, tweaked grille design but the typical Jeep elements will be retained, new bumper design for sharper looks, new alloy wheels, updated rear bumper and redesigned tail lights. We might see new exterior colour options as well with the facelift.

The interior of the Meridian is also expected to come with some changes. The dashboard might get new materials and colour combination. The upholstery of the Meridian is also expected to be new.

It will continue to offer the floating touchscreen infotainment system measuring 10.1-inch along with the 10.25-inch all-digital instrument cluster. Other features will include 360 degree camera, dual zone climate control, etc. Jeep might introduce new front and rear dashcam with the updated Meridian along with ADAS Level 2 to improve the safety features of the SUV.

There will be no changes in terms of mechanicals. It will continue to be powered by the same 2.0-litre diesel engine producing 170 BHP and 350 Nm of torque, mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. There is currently no petrol option on offer. Jeep is considering to introduce a 1.3-litre turbo petrol engine soon that produces 185 HP and 270 Nm of torque. This engine will be first offered with the Compass and later it might make it to the Meridian.

The Jeep Meridian will continue to rival the Toyota Fortuner, which is the undisputed champion of the segment along with the MG Gloster and Skoda Kodiaq. What are your thoughts on this product by Jeep? Let us know in the comments below.
