Upcoming Jeep Renegade

Jeep Renegade
October 2020 Expected Launch
8.5 - 12 Lakhs Expected Price

The Compact SUV scene seems to be buzzing by the hour as there are more and more manufactures planning to make a debut in this newly popular segment. Popular SUV maker, Jeep, is seriously considering launching its all new compact global vehicle Renegade in India. While the expected launch is supposed to happen in 2017, it will rival the likes of Renault Duster, Ford EcoSport, Hyundai Creta and Maruti Suzuki S-Cross.

The Jeep Renegade SUV packs in all characteristic traits of off-road potential that the brand is known for. Based on the newly developed small wide 4x4 architecture, Jeep Renegade will be the most affordable vehicle from the classic SUV maker. It will have best in class driveability with a strong focus on performance and safety. Even the suspensions of this compact SUV have been tuned with improved damping system along with high-performance brakes and independent suspensions for all wheels, together making the Renegade a one of its kinds. 

Jeep Renegade is undoubtedly the smallest SUV from the brand but even then the designers have managed to make it look exciting. Firstly, the circular headlamps paired with the signature Jeep grille give it a familiar look of its siblings. They won’t be offered with modern day projectors nor will it sport day running lamps like that in the Hyundai Creta.

Instead, the Renegade combines old school design with a retro feel. It gets matte claddings underneath with the same continuing throughout the exterior profile. The side gets unique squarish wheel arches with minimalistic contours giving it a muscular look. The pillars are blackened and are tall in nature to make sure the occupants have a greater visibility. It gets body coloured door handles with equally stylish looking alloy wheels. The rear might remind you of the early generation Willy’s with squared tail lights and a rather simple tail door.

The funky appeal of the design is carried inside the Jeep Renegade too with sporty and youth inspired trims. Firstly, it gets a solid leather wrapped steering wheel with multiple functions to control infotainment, telephony and entertainment options. Large air con vents will get body coloured surround and to the centre, there lies a touchscreen infotainment system which will be completely savvy with its high dimensional user interface. It is expected to be wrapped with an all black ebony meets leather themed interiors. In terms of space, the Jeep Renegade will have plenty of headroom with its tall boy design while the kneeroom and legroom aren’t expected to be as generous as the Renault Duster.

One thing is for sure that this small Jeep will not give an excuse before seeing a challenging surface. It will be more of an off-roader than the usual soft roaders like its core rivals and the reason for that is the strong foundation which has been formed with comprehensive use of high-strength steel along with stronger structural bonds.

It is expected to be powered by a Fiat sourced 1.5-litre engine, when launched in India. The international variants are powered by a 1.4-litre and 2.4-litre engines. The Fiat sourced motor will make a power output of 118 bhp and 320 Nm of torque. It is also anticipated that Jeep will offer the Renegade with a 4x4 drive train, only on the high end variants.

We expect Jeep to price the Renegade SUV at an extremely competitive price to make a strong statement against its rivals also ensuring a firmer foothold in the country. The Renegade is a result of extensive research carried by Jeep on a product that exceeds the expectations on quality and reliability. Before launching an aggressive product like this, the brand would also need to have a dense dealership network, to not repeat the mistake that Fiat did in India.
