Jeep’s smallest SUV, the Renegade, gets new features, refreshed looks and a new turbo engine.


To describe Jeep’s smallest SUV, the Renegade, as cute, is an understatement. Size aside, the Renegade this year will attract even more car enthusiasts thanks to its comprehensive update, including a new turbocharged engine, a refreshed look and more fuel efficient.

Let’s begin with the engine. New three and four-cylinder turbo petrol engines on the Renegade includes a 1.0-liter delivering 120 hp and 190 Nm of torque and a 1.3-liter delivering 150 hp or 180 hp and 270 Nm of torque. The engine offering also includes the updated 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter MultiJet II diesel engines with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction), all are Euro 6/D compliant. The engine range on the new 2019 Renegade can be paired with a six-speed manual, DDCT (Dual Dry Clutch Transmission) and nine-speed automatic transmissions for a smooth, comfortable driving experience.

The new styling of the Jeep B-SUV is a modern take on the iconic design of the Jeep brand. For off-road adventure lovers, the legendary Jeep brand off-road capability comes courtesy of two advanced 4×4 systems, Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low that ensure benchmark performance in all conditions. For urban adventure enthusiasts, the new Renegade offers fourth-generation UconnectTM with 5-inch, 7-inch or 8.4-inch displays, high-definition touchscreens, Apple CarPlay integration and Android AutoTM compatibility, so owners can always be connected.

Safety also gets an upgrade. State The Renegade gains new features throughout the range like Lane Sense Departure Warning-Plus, Intelligent Speed Assist with Traffic Sign Recognition, and Forward Collision Warning-Plus with Active Emergency Braking standard on Limited.

Inside, the Renegade’s interior roominess is at the top of its category, distinguishing itself in terms of headroom and width of the seats. The Renegade also offers several interior customisation possibilities, thanks to different configurations specific for each trim level. This allows customers to choose the trim closest to their needs, between the Trespass Black and Polar Plunge upholsteries. The latter, for example, is offered in the Ski Grey and Black leather combination with Ski Grey stitching on the Limited trim. Further design improvements include refreshed bezels on the radio, climate vents, central tunnel and speakers. Some details shared with Wrangler are also found inside, including the wide, horizontal instrument panel with central focal points and trapezoidal details.

The Renegade is available in two configurations – front-wheel and four-wheel drive – and features two four-wheel-drive systems, rear axle disconnect, Selec-Terrain traction control, Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control. Its 4×4 capability finds its best expression in the Trailhawk trim created for off-road driving and packed with specific, stylistic and technical features.
