Due on sale in September and priced from £19,200 OTR, the refreshed Renegade provides evidence of Fiat Chrysler’s plans to move away from diesel by introducing new petrol engines in the form of a 1.0-litre three-cylinder with 118bhp, and a 1.3-litre four-cylinder with 148bhp. Both feature particulate filters and significantly lower SMR costs than their predecessors. Transmission choices cover a six-speed manual for the 1.0-litre and a DDCT (Dual Dry Clutch Transmission) auto for the 1.3-litre.

The engine line-up also includes updated 118bhp 1.6-litre and 138bhp/168bhp 2.0-litre MultiJet diesel engines which now get AdBlue injection and are Euro 6d-TEMP/D compliant. The 2.0-litre engines come with four-wheel drive and a low-range mode on the Trailhawk model along with selectable driving modes.

Other changes include new frontal styling that echoes the Wrangler plus new wheels and LED headlights, the latter on Limited and Trailhawk versions only.

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 a more powerful processor with improved response capability.

Equipment changes see Lane Sense Departure Warning-Plus and Intelligent Speed Assist with Traffic Sign Recognition now standard across the entire range.

The updated Renegade also gets Jeep’s new five-year warranty as part of the 5-3-5 offer, which also includes a three-year servicing programme, plus five years’ roadside assistance.
