Jeep prepares for the debut updated RenegadeJune 4, 2018
Refreshed compact crossover will be presented in a couple of days.
The American manufacturer plans to update the European version of the Jeep Renegade crossover. The details are not disclosed yet, but a teaser is published, which shows the redesigned tail lamp of the car. He retained the X-shaped graphics, but white in it now only the central part.
Changes in appearance in the updated model are likely to affect also the bumper, radiator grille and, perhaps, the design of the fifth door will be redesigned.
More important will be the renewal of the composition of the power scale, which will be replenished with new three- and four-cylinder petrol engines. It’s about a small 1.0-liter engine with 120 hp. and a larger volume of 1.3 liters in two power options – 150 and 180 hp.
The premiere of the updated Jeep Renegade 2019 model year will be held on June 6 at the Motor Show in Turin. The restyling crossover in the performance for the North American market, presumably, will debut before the end of this year.
By the way, in Europe, the business of Jeep Renegade is relatively good. In 2015, 53,940 cars were sold, in 2016, 76,203 units, and in 2017 sales fell slightly – 72,578 pieces. In the US, the model is sold somewhat better: 60 946, 106 605 and 103 434 cars, respectively.
By the way, if now Renegade is an entry-level model in the brand line, then in 2022 the company plans to release a new small crossover, which is noticeably lower than Renegade. Approximately at the same time, the launch of a new generation of Renegade is planned.
