Not expected to launch in India.
The Renegade was likely imported for testing the Small Wide platform in India, which will underpin the Jeep 551 SUV that will be manufactured and sold in India. Two variants were imported for testing: 6-speed manual and 9-speed automatic versions of the Renegade diesel model that packs a 2.0L Multijet engine.
As for the Jeep 551, it will replace the Compass and Patriot SUVs in several markets. The SUV will make its world debut in Brazil in late-September, followed by a U.S. debut at the 2016 LA Auto Show in November. Unlike the Renegade, the Jeep C-SUV will feature a more contemporary styling similar to the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee.
