Jeep took a dive into the cool, subcompact crossover segment with the Renegade in 2016. Since its launching, the Renegade has actually remained virtually unchanged– the 2017 model got optional xenon headlights, auto high beams, and keyless ignition. In 2018, we anticipate much of the very same from this small crossover.
Most current reports state that company prepares a mid-cycle refresh for its tiniest vehicle in lineup, which will come as 2018 Jeep Renegade. This is a subcompact crossover produced by Jeep, based upon 500X. Company wanted to offer a little crossover, ideal for urban conditions. So, the borrowed a platform from Fiat, which is a professional for little cars, and developed a vehicle which finally was available in 2014. Now company prepares a refresh, when this little young boy turn three years. Up until now, we still do not know specific information about these changes, however most likely we will see just visual improvements.
As we mentioned, 2018 Jeep Renegade will come refreshed. Although this model is well-accepted and makes good results, when it has to do with sale numbers, company wish to make certain that this state will stay, and perhaps even to improve results. Due to the fact that of that, Jeep chose for a mid-cycle refresh, maybe a bit earlier than we expected. So, exactly what to expect from this upgrade of 2018 Jeep Renegade? Firstly, it is basically for sure that we won’t see mechanical changes. In this element, we will see basically state as on model that came 3 years earlier. On the other side, we will see some visual updates, although we need to confess that present model still looks really fresh, really attractive and modern.
It is still unidentified which areas will be modified however, as it is usual for these types of updates, the majority of them will come at the front. We might see things like update front fascia, reviewed headlights and grille, customized bumper and so on. On the other side, rear end will most likely remain the same. When it is about interior, 2018 Renegade will most likely keep the exact same style and styling. Only thing that we can anticipate are updates and upgrades of present hi-tech systems, and maybe some new standard features.
When it has to do with engines, we won’t see any change. Base 2018 Jeep Renegade will be powered by Chrysler’s 2.4 liter engine, which benefits about 180 horses, and comes coupled with 9-speed automatic transmission. Optional engine is 1.4 MultiAir Turbo engine from Fiat, which benefits about 160 horse power.
The 2018 Jeep Renegade is expected to come somewhere in the second half of this year. We expect production of the 2018 Renegade to begin in November 2017. This would give it an on-sale date of around December. Price ought to remain pretty much the very same, which suggests in a range between 18.000 and 23.000 dollars.
