Many reports suggest that 2018 Jeep Renegade will come with updates. Since the segment of small crossover is hugely popular all over the world, this seems quite possible. To remind you, this model came in 2014 as a completely new crossover in Jeep’s lineup. It comes with many new design solutions, and the interesting thing about it is that ride on the Fiat’s small FWD platform, which is also used for Fiat 500X. So, these two models share many parts. However, this one comes with more SUVish design, and we believe that it is designed for a wider range of customers. For the next year, 2018 Renegade could receive some updates, mostly in terms of new features and maybe some visual tweaks. However, the price should remain unchanged.
2018 Jeep Renegade possible changes
As we already mentioned, 2018 Jeep Renegade could receive some updates. If we consider that this model came in 2014, and those small cars usually have shorter production cycle, this sounds very likely. So, what to expect from this update? Well, base design characteristic will remain the same for sure, but we could see some new styling details. As it usually goes with these kinds of refreshes, main visual updates will be at the front end. We could see revisions on areas such as headlights, grille etc. However, those modifications shouldn’t be so big, which means that 2018 Jeep Renegade will basically remain in current design language. When it comes to the interior, we surely won’t see some bigger changes, but we could see some smaller tweaks on the dashboard, and also some new standard features. In order to remain competitive, the company will probably offer more equipment in the standard package.
2018 Jeep Renegade engines
When it comes to powertrain, we expect no changes. For the North American market, there are two engines in the offer. The base model comes with Chrysler’s 2.4 liter Tigershark engine, which is good for about 180 horses, and which comes in pair with a new 9-speed automatic transmission. Optional engine comes from Fiat. It is an efficient 1.6-liter turbo engine, which is good for about 160 horsepower, and comes in pair with 6-speed manual transmission. In some other parts of the world, we can also find Fiat’s MultiJet engines in the offer.
2018 Jeep Renegade release date and price
The 2018 Jeep Renegade will come somewhere late this year. The base model will go around 18.000 dollars.
