The appearance of the 2022 Jeep Meridian may remind of the Compass SUV, which is already on offer in Indian markets since 2016. However, there are certain design changes in the Meridian that will make it stand apart from the five-seater SUV. For instance, the Jeep Meridian will be offered with redesigned LED headlights with LED DRL units, fog lamps, LED taillights, mounted camera on the ORVMs. The grille, which is expected to carry Jeep's traditional seven-slats, are likely to be redesigned to look slightly different from the one seen on Compass.
