New petrol engine options for a refreshed Renegade

New petrol engine options for a refreshed Renegade

Pricing and specification has been announced for the new Jeep Renegade ahead of the B-segment SUV’s arrival in September.

Prices for the Sport 1.0 GSE T3 120hp version will start at £19,200 OTR.

Among the changes to the MY19 Renegade are new front styling, giving a fresh aesthetical appearance; new petrol and diesel SCR engines; improved fuel economy with new 1.0-litre engine; refreshed and updated interior with increased storage capacity; new LED headlights (Standard on Limited and Trailhawk versions); new wheel designs – 16, 17, 18 and new option 19-inch (on Limited version) and improved safety content across the entire line-up.

The new Renegade offers a new engine range developed to ensure maximum fuel efficiency and outstanding performance both on and off-road.

New three and four-cylinder turbo petrol engines debut – the new engine family includes a 1.0-litre delivering 120hp and 190 Nm of torque and a 1.3-litre delivering 150hp or 180hp and 270 Nm of torque.

The engine offering also includes the updated 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre MultiJet II diesel engines with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction), all of which are Euro 6d-TEMP/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 Renegade features a new front-end design delivering a more modern look thanks to a new front fascia, which now sports a redesigned, cut-in silhouette seven-slot Jeep grille – similar to the Wrangler – new headlights and fog lights.

The exterior is completed by new wheels. The new model offers seven different wheel options – including 16-inch, 17-inch, 18-inch and 19-inch -– with the latter introduced for the first time and exclusive to the Limited trim – all featuring special finishes.

Depending on trim level, the new Renegade can be equipped with Uconnect five-inch or Uconnect 8.4-inch NAV, which include touchscreens.

This allows for the driver to control the climate system, the sound system and more directly from the Uconnect display, for additional safety while driving.

The new Jeep Renegade is available in two configurations, with two- or four-wheel drive. Two advanced 4x4 systems, Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low, secure benchmark performance in all conditions.

Jeep Selec-Terrain is integrated with four settings (auto, default mode with rear axle disconnect; snow, 4WD mode calibrated to reduce understeer; sand and mud, 4WD modes for maximising low-speed traction) for optimal response on all road surfaces.

Safety systems, standard or optional, include six standard airbags and ESC (electronic stability control) with ERM (electronic rollover mitigation). Now standard across the entire range are Lane Sense Departure Warning-Plus and Intelligent Speed Assist with Traffic Sign Recognition.
