The car will have restyled headlights and roof-mounted antenna
The new Jeep Renegade will have a sculpted bonnet, a large grille, a wide air dam, and restyled headlights with integrated position lights. On the sides, the SUV will be flanked by roof rails, blacked-out B-pillars, ORVMs, flared wheel arches, and designer blacked-out wheels. A roof-mounted antenna, a window wiper, and squarish taillights will be available on the rear section.
Two engine choices will be offered
The new Jeep Renegade will be fueled by a 1.3-liter Turboflex engine that makes 185hp of power and a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel mill that generates 170hp. Transmission duties will be handled by a 6-speed manual or a 9-speed automatic gearbox.
It will get Compass-inspired steering wheel and 'floating' infotainment system
The new Jeep Renegade will have a spacious cabin, featuring reconfigured AC vents, an updated dashboard, parking sensors, and a Compass-inspired steering wheel.
