The Jeep Renegade now features an even more distinctive styling - updated in the front and sporting unmistakable features unique to the Jeep brand design and technical heritage. Distinctive and iconic design cues on the new Jeep Renegade include round headlamps and trapezoidal wheel arches. There is a clear connection between the design of the 2019 Renegade and the new Wrangler, while showcasing the blend of styling for both city streets and off-road trails of Renegade. Its off-road capabilities are best-in-class and remain the benchmark of the segment. The new Renegade is available in two configurations - front-wheel and four-wheel drive - and features two four-wheel-drive systems, rear axle disconnect, Selec-Terrain traction control, Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control. Its 4x4 capability finds its best expression in the Trailhawk trim created for off-road driving and packed with specific, stylistic and technical features.
New turbo petrol engine lineup
The new turbo petrol engines are debuting on the new Renegade. Based on a modular structure, they are available in two configurations: a 1-liter three-cylinder delivering 120 hp of peak power and 190 Nm of peak torque paired with a six-speed manual transmission and a 1.3-liter four-cylinder delivering 150 hp paired with a DDCT dual clutch transmission - both with front-wheel drive. A lively turbo 1.3-liter, 180 hp paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission with torque converter and 4WD is also available. Peak torque of both 1.3-liter engines is equal to 270 Nm.
The new petrol engines comply with the Euro 6 / D standards and feature GPF filter (Gasoline Particulate Filter).
Top level safety features
The new Jeep Renegade was developed to guarantee top level protection courtesy of several state-of-the-art safety systems, offered as standard or optional, and including six standard airbags and ESC (electronic stability control) with ERM (electronic rollover mitigation).
The 2019 model year has been updated to include new contents that complement the offer in terms of safety ensuring maximum protection and comfort. Now standard on the entire range are Lane Sense Departure Warning-Plus and Intelligent Speed Assist with Traffic Sign Recognition.
Lane Sense Departure Warning-Plus uses the optical sensor of the camera to establish the position of the vehicle on the road. In case of unintentional lane departure, occurring when the system detects a lane drift without the turn signal being switched on, Lane Keeping Assist provides corrective action to return the vehicle back to its original position.
The new Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) system is able to recognise road signs, including speed limits with and without restrictions, and to notify the driver through an alert that can be viewed on the instrument panel. In combination with the Intelligent Speed Assist system (which can be operated comfortably via the steering wheel controls), the speed can be set to the limits that the TSR has previously identified. However, the driver is free to ignore the system's notifications and to reject the speed limits indicated by the traffic sign.
An updated Automatic park assist - park sense® (available after launch) simplifies manoeuvring into - and now also out of - parking spots. It is based on the same functions as the previous version of the system. Automatic steering is implemented by means of sensors and cameras, integrating the side obstacle detection function.
