Jeep show as new Renegade is unveiled
JEEP has confirmed pricing and specifications for its recently refreshed Renegade, which is set to arrive in the UK this month.
Starting from £19,200, the Italian-built compact SUV gets a revised look, more equipment and improved safety, along with a new engine line-up.
The new look comes thanks to a redesigned front fascia, although Jeep’s iconic seven-slot grille is still present.
New LED headlights are available as optional extras on all models and as standard on high-spec Limited and Trailhawk models. Entry-level Renegades are powered by a new three-cylinder 1.0-litre turbocharged unit, delivering 118bhp and 190Nm of torque. Another petrol option is offered in the form of a four-cylinder turbocharged 1.3-litre engine, which can be had with 148bhp or 178bhp, with both outputs delivering 270Nm of torque.
There’s also the choice of two diesel engines, which are revised versions of those offered on the outgoing model.
Three gearbox options are on offer: A six-speed manual, a six-speed dualclutch automatic and a nine-speed torque converter automatic. There’s also the option of front or all-wheel drive. An updated Uconnect infotainment system is also on offer.
