Posted on: Feb 12, 2016 - 1:38pm IST

Not confirmed for launch in India, so far.

The Jeep brand will be introduced in India this year through the Wrangler, Grand Cherokee and SRT.

Although FCA India has only announced the Wrangler, Grand Cherokee and SRT models initially, perhaps the company could introduce the entry-level Renegade to challenge the likes of the Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster.

Should the Renegade be considered for launch, it’s engine lineup could be sourced from the UK-spec model, which comprises of a 1.6-liter petrol or 2.0-liter MultiJet II diesel. A 6-speed manual and 9-speed automatic serve as transmission options, while an AWD system is optional in higher grades.

Another reason that cannot be ruled out is benchmark testing, as the Renegade is based on FCA’s Small Wide platform that will underpin the slightly bigger Jeep 551 Compact SUV, which is confirmed to be manufactured and launched in India in 2017.
