New three and four-cylinder turbo petrol engines debut on the refreshed Jeep Renegade – the new engine family includes a 1.0-litre delivering 120hp and 190Nm of torque and a 1.3-litre delivering 150hp or 180hp and 270Nm of torque. On the diesel front, there’s the updated 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre MultiJet-II diesel engines with selective catalytic reduction, all of which are Euro 6d-TEMP/D compliant.

Exterior changes

The 2018 Renegade features a new front fascia which now sports a redesigned 7-slot Jeep grille (similar to the Wrangler), and new head and fog lights. There’s a range of seven new wheel styles, including 16-, 17-, 18- and 19-inch, with the larger reserved exclusively for the top of the range Limited trim.

Interior changes

Interiors across the refreshed Renegade range offer innovative colour combinations, higher quality materials, high-tech features and revised storage compartments.

Depending on trim level, new Jeep Renegade can be equipped with Uconnect 5-inch or Uconnect 8.4-inch NAV, which include touchscreens and easy-to-use features and an uprated processor which offers improved response. Either Uconnect unit allows the driver to control both the climate and sound systems and much more.

Drive-line

The 2018 Jeep Renegade is available in two configurations, with two- or four-wheel drive. Renowned Jeep off-road capability is guaranteed by two advanced 4×4 systems, Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low which secure benchmark performance in all conditions.

Jeep Selec-Terrain is integrated with four settings: auto (default mode with rear axle disconnect); snow (4WD calibrated to reduce understeer), sand & mud (both 4WD modes for maximising low-speed traction).

Safety improvements

The updated Renegade was developed to guarantee top level protection with several state-of-the-art safety systems, standard or optional, including six standard airbags and electronic stability control with electronic rollover mitigation. Now standard across the entire range are lane sense departure warning-plus and intelligent speed assist with traffic sign recognition.
