The Jeep Renegade arrived in 2014 and will receive a facelift next year. Jeep has readied prototypes of the 2019 Jeep Renegade for testing, spy shots published by motor.es have revealed.
The spy shots suggest that the 2019 Jeep Renegade will feature refreshed front and rear fascias. The round headlamps, fog lamps, and turn indicators look just like those in the current model, but changes to these elements could emerge as testing progresses. The radiator grille slats do look different from those in the current model. The facelifted Renegade may get new graphics for the tail lamps and remodeled bumpers as well. Inside, Jeep could offer customers new trim and upholstery choices.
The current Jeep Renegade is available with a variety of petrol, petrol-ethanol and diesel engines with displacements ranging from 1.4- to 2.4-litre. Revisions to the currently available engines, if planned, are unknown as of now. However, with the mid-cycle refresh, Jeep could introduce a new 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine like in the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, albeit in a detuned state.
The 2019 Jeep Renegade could arrive in some markets sometime next year. Jeep is reportedly planning to launch the facelifted Jeep Renegade in India in H2, 2019. Built at the Ranjangaon plant, the Indian-spec Renegade is likely to feature a 1.4-litre Multiair turbocharged petrol and 1.6-litre Multijet turbocharged diesel engine. AWD variants could also be on offer.
