When FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne announced changes in the design of the whole line of the cars, Jeep models were some of them who are expected those changes, too. However, that change comes from a concept Yuntu later introduced China where some details are already taken for latest Compass. However, changes are mostly seen in details, while the shape and overall of 2019 Jeep Renegade are the same, so old buyers will recognizable it on the roads, but in terms of engine, the manufacturer made significant changes. The new Renegade is still attractive but now modernized and adjusted to many customers’ demands.
- has front and all-wheel driving system
- Apple Car Play or Android Car system
- only automatic transmission
There are few visible changes in the design of 2019 Jeep Renegade since it gets a mid-cycle update. The recognizable front end has the same gridded mesh grille, but lights should be angled now and not rounded as before. There is surely wide protection on the bottom made of aluminum and thin air intake. The rear end is rounded and slightly changed, with different rear lights and new curves and lines on the truck door. The car is more like a crossover than SUV, meaning that roof and hood are slightly rounded and the car looks smaller and compact.
There are expected changes in the cabin of 2019 Jeep Renegade as in term of design as well in term of equipment. There will be added the fourth generation of Uconnect entertainment system, which allows connection with the car with Apple Car Play or Android Car system. It is likely that the manufacturer will use better and more luxury materials as well as modernize the dashboard and steering wheel.
As we said, there are some changes in engine worthy of mentioning under the hood of 2019 Jeep Renegade. First of all, smaller 1.4-liter turbo engine should remain the same, while the bigger one, 2.4-liter gets more than 180 horsepower due to very strong competition in this class and stronger and stronger engines that they make every year. As on previous models, there will be offered six and nine-speed automatic transmission and front and all-wheel driving system.
2019 Jeep Renegade Release Date and Price
2019 Jeep Renegade is a truck that almost every buyer can buy according to the price of only $19,000 for the base model. However, thanks to many changes, it will be very attractive to buyers, while the old ones should not be disappointed with those changes at all. Releasing date should be at next 2018 New York Auto Show when all doubts will be resolved. The biggest competitors are: popular Honda HR-V and Nissan Kicks.
