After the recent facelift, we expect to see no bigger changes for the 2020 Jeep Renegade. The company believes that the current model still has a lot of things to offer and that the redesign won’t happen so soon. After all, a plug-in hybrid version has been in preparations and may come already in the next year. That would definitely be the biggest novelty for the next year, though we are still waiting to head details from the officials. Other than that, the 2020 Jeep Renegade will continue in the same way.
The small but capable crossover. The recent facelift has brought a lot of novelties, so we don’t expect any notable change for the next year. The styling has been updated, as well as interior features. Therefore, we have no reason to believe that the new model will come any earlier than usual. It will come sometime late in the year.
2020 Jeep Renegade Redesign
When it comes to base design characteristics, this model hasn’t changed too much since the initial launch, which happened five years ago. It rides on the company’s families Small Wide platform and shares a lot of parts with the Fiat 500X. On the other side, the styling has been updated last year. For this occasion, we saw a typical facelift with a fine amount of subtle updates. Of course, most of the changes were made on the front end. If you look closely, you can easily notice that the new version comes with a different bumper design, larger front grille and new Wrangler-like LED headlamps.
On the other end, you can notice revisions on the rear bumper and a few more areas. All in all seems more than enough to keep this model fresh for a couple of more year. So, don’t expect to see any important changes on 2020 Jeep Renegade. The best we could see are things like new exterior colors.
On the inside, the recent update hasn’t brought too many changes, but rather new features, starting from a new infotainment system and similar things. On the other side, the overall interior design isn’t much different compared to previous year models and the 2020 Jeep Renegade is expected to continue in the same way, which is a good thing. This crossover has one of the nicest cabins in the class. The dashboard looks very stylish and upscale and also features quality materials all around the cabin. When it comes to interior space, things are pretty typical for the class. Front seats are quite generous in terms of space and comfort, while the second row might be tight for taller passengers. When it comes to cargo capacity, you can count on 18.5 cubic feet behind rear seats and around 50 cubic feet of total cargo space.
This is one of the aspects where we could see novelties for the next year, especially if we consider that the Renegade isn’t as generous as some rivals. Still, don’t count on anything significant. The core will remain the same, so base models will come with standard features like a 7-inch touchscreen, six-speaker audio system, a USB port, and Bluetooth. Of course, there is a long list of available features, which includes things like a bigger 8.4-inch touch screen, navigation, a nine-speaker Beats audio system, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, Dual-zone automatic climate control, etc.
In terms of safety, all models come standard with a rearview camera only. On the other side, higher trims include advanced systems like adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking and more.
2020 Jeep Renegade Engines
The 2020 Jeep Renegade engines will continue with two familiar engines in the offer. Base models will come with 2.4-liter four-cylinder, which is good for about 180 horsepower. There is also an optional turbo-four version, which features a similar amount of power, but more torque, which provides better performances and overall ride quality. However, both engines are a little bit disappointing in terms of fuel economy, as you can count on about 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
As we already mentioned, a PHEV model is expected to arrive in the next year. However, we still don’t have any information about the drivetrain.
2020 Jeep Renegade Release Date and Price
We believe that the 2020 Jeep Renegade will come in a typical time of year. In this case, that would mean sometime in the last quarter of 2019. Base models should go around 22.000 dollars. Some of the main competitors are models like Hyundai Kona, Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3 etc.
