Jeep Renegade facelift revealed, with new turbo engines

For European markets, 2019 Jeep Renegade will be powered by a new 1.0 liter, 3 cylinder engine offering 120 hp peak power. The rear bumper has also been mildly updated with two individual mesh panels.

As had been teased, the Jeep Renegade received a makeover today in Europe. We must say that the facelifted Jeep Renegade looks a lot more exciting than the previous model.

In terms of pricing, the Jeep Renegade is expected to be priced around Rs 12 lakh (ex-showroom) in India. In fact, when Jeep did release the teaser image of the vehicle, one single image of the new tail lamp was used.

When the 2019 Jeep Renegade goes on sale in Europe it will be offered with a range three and four-cylinder engines.

The 2019 Jeep Renegade facelift gets new headlamps with an embedded LED daytime running light in the centre, a redesigned front bumper where the LED lamps have a housing of their own and the fog lamps have been moved a little lower and are positioned closer than before.

Palestinian FA chief Jibril Rajoub speaks during a news conference, in Ramallah in the occupied West Bank June 6, 2018. She contended that Israel would pass on hosting the competition if it is not held in Jerusalem for political reasons.

At the rear, the tail lamps too get a slight redesign.

Jeep has yet to reveal other details or show us the updated cabin, so stay tuned for more info when it becomes available.

Inside, a larger infotainment screen takes the place of the current 6.5-inch unit, absorbing the buttons and controls previously surrounding it.

Depending on the model chosen, the 2019 Renegade can come with a six-speed manual, seven-speed dual-clutch or a nine-speed automatic. That includes new engines, which Jeep has said to expect but not named. While a mild-hybrid powertrain is also in the works by the company.

Jeep is also expected to launch a turbocharged diesel engine in specific worldwide markets as well.
