The Jeep Renegade has been given a slight facelift, with subtle changes to its exterior styling and new technology on the inside, and with a fleet of new engines confirmed. A £945 price increase takes its entry-level price up to £19,200.
Jeep has already confirmed to the Coach that he will eventually be a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine, 48V mild hybrid version of every car in its line-up. This will include the upgrade Renegade when it will be on sale in the UK in September. The American brand has also planned to give each of its models with a plug-in hybrid variant by the end of the decade, as well as a small, sub-Renegade SUV afterwards.
A 1.0-litre, 120bhp petrol and a 150bhp and 180bhp 1.3-litre petrol will also be featured, improving the performance and efficiency of the current iteration of the 1.4-and 1.6-litre petrols. The range-topping Renegade, the 2.0-litre, 168bhp Trailhawk, costs £30,805.
Exterior revisions include revised LED daytime running lights – X pattern for the rear lights continues in the headlights today, and other light settings, while the car’s rugged, retro-Jeep, the style remains.
