As of now, it’s unconfirmed if Jeep will launch the Renegade or not.

When the Jeep brand was launched in India at the Auto Expo 2016, the models confirmed to go on sale were the WranglerGrand Cherokee and SRT Cherokee. The Renegade could serve as Jeep’s entry level premium SUV to rival top-end grades of the Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster.

If the Renegade launches in India, 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 will serve as transmission options, while an AWD system is optional in higher grades.

Another likely reason that FCA brought the Renegade to India is for benchmark testing, as it is based on FCA’s Small Wide platform. This platform will underpin the slightly bigger Jeep 551 Compact SUV, which is confirmed to be manufactured and launched in India in 2017.
