Great things are happening in Toledo. After the start of the Trackhawk SUV, the impending arrival and the revival of Wagoner, the company of the group FAC is always on the point of receiving updates concerning the rest of its range. The 2019 Jeep Renegade is underway and is a small update of the currently available model. The first prototypes of 2019 Jeep Renegade were seen in tests conducted in winter conditions.
Like any modern mid-cycle enhancement, the front fascia receives most modifications. Despite the camouflage, we can see an updated grid, repositioned fog lights and new intermittent fires. The grid has less dead space between the seven slot opening. The chrome trim also surrounds the slots and should offer a slightly more ladylike feel to the 2019 Jeep Renegade playful design. The fog lights are now located further down just below the bolted recovery loop. Placement means that this test mule is a model that is not Trailhawk and does not have the red tow hooks in plain view. The indicators mounted on the bumper are now shorter and wider than before. They also seem to be LED. Our spy photographer says that the new 2019 Jeep Renegade will also be offered with optional LED headlights. We think they will look like the new Wrangler JL premium LED units. In return, it is difficult to distinguish the differences between the test mullet and the current 2019 Jeep Renegade. The only notable changes are the taillights, whose white parts are wider in the center than the X-shaped taillights of the current 2019 Jeep Renegade. This could also be the angle of the camera. The rear bumper also confirms that this test mule is not the Trailhawk model because the red rear towing hook is not present. Finally, the 2019 Jeep Renegade appears unchanged in the middle. The doors, the roof and the central parts of the wheel holes are uncovered.
Our spy photographer could not take pictures of the interior, but said the dashboard features a new, larger information and entertainment system and updated CVC controls. While we are confident that the 2019 Jeep Renegade will not receive the 12 inch Uconnect system from the 2019 Dodge Ram 1500, we expect Jeep to update the 2019 Jeep Renegade interface. Currently, 2019 Jeep Renegade comes standard with a 5.0 inch Uconnect display and an optional 6.5 inch unit. We bet that the 7.0 inch will be the default system and the Uconnect 8.4 inch will be the premium option. The latest Uconnect 4 software will also be present. When it comes to HVAC controls, we do not know what else Jeep can do in addition to rearranging the design. 2019 Jeep Renegade is now available with an automatic dual zone system with higher settings. Maybe a new dual zone system is standard in all areas. We also expect an updated connectivity base with more USB ports, including USB-C connectivity. Jeep could even launch a wireless phone charger. Otherwise, the updated 2019 Jeep Renegade will continue to accommodate five people in its row, while maintaining 18.5 cubic feet of things behind the second row. Folding the row of the 60/40 split second row opens up the load capacity to 50.8 cubic feet of storage.
We expect Jeep to upgrade the 2018 Renegade transmission and 4WD systems. However, it is likely that the engines will be transferred almost unchanged. The 1.4 liter MultiAir is a naturally aspirated, four cylinder engine that produces a 160 horsepower, 184 pound per foot bit. A six speed manual transmission and a nine speed automatic are the two transmission options. Fuel economy reaches a maximum of 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. The optional 2.4 liter Tigershark MultiAir 2 engine also has natural suction, but generates a little more horsepower with 180 horsepower and 175 pound feet of torque. This engine is only available on four wheel drive models and is exclusively associated with the nine speed automatic transmission. The fuel economy is slightly lower than that of the small engine, but not much. The 2.4 liter has an EPA rating of 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. Regarding the important updates, we expect the new 2019 Jeep Renegade to receive the nine speed automatic update of the Cherokee 2019. According to Jeep, the transmission allows for smoother changes thanks to a control module. computer reprogrammed. It is also likely that the new Active Drive I 4WD system was borrowed from the updated version of the Cherokee.
The latest version of this mid-size SUV is expected to be released later this year. The vehicle 2019 Jeep Renegade will arrive by 2019 MY. Price details for the next car are not available at the moment. The current version is priced at $ 20.00 for its entry level model. The basic version is completely naked, so to speak. If you opt for additional equipment, such as automatic transmission, air conditioning and a touch screen information and entertainment system, the price will be lost among $ 20,000. The fully loaded Trailhawk and Limited models will cost you over $ 30,000.
