After the Jeep Compass, the next locally made Jeep SUV planned for India is reportedly the Jeep Renegade. The Renegade would expand the brand’s line-up to four models in the country. Previously this model was expected in 2018, but according a new report, the launch is programed for the second half of 2019.

The Jeep Renegade’s local testing has already commenced with the car’s base price speculated to start at around INR 10 lakh.

The Jeep Renegade was introduced in 2014 to tap the booming B-SUV segment. It competes with the likes of Kia Soul, Fiat 500X, Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V and Chevrolet Trax internationally. By the time it is on sale, it will have reached the mid-point of its lifecycle. FCA India, going by reports, will bring it here directly after it receives a facelift internationally.

Just-Auto speculates that the 2019 Jeep Renegade will be the recipient of a larger infotainment screen. FCA could rework the lane-change and parking alerts for quieter operation. Overall feel of the interior could step up with the mid-cycle action.

The Jeep Renegade is based on FCA’s small wide platform. It measures 4,236 mm in length, 1,805 mm in width and 1,667 mm (4×2)/1,697 mm (4×4 Trailhawk) in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,570 mm. Engine options include 1.4-litre MultiAir2 petrol, 2.0-litre Tigershark petrol 2.4-litre MultiAir2 Tigershark petrol, 1.6-litre E.TorQ petrol-ethanol, 1.8-litre E.TorQ petrol-ethanol, 1.6-litre MultiJet II diesel and 2.0-litre MultiJet II diesel.

The Indian-spec 2019 Jeep Renegade will share the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol and 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engines with the Compass. While the Compass gets the 173 PS (170.56 hp) version of the 2.0-litre diesel engine, the Renegade may settle for the 140 hp version of this engine.
