In crowded segments, such as the segment of subcompact crossovers, things are usually changing pretty fast. Carmakers tend to practice shorter production cycles, with more frequent redesigns and updates. However, that’s not the case with Jeep Renegade, a model that’s been around since 2015 and hasn’t received a redesign yet. Moreover, it looks like the current generation is about to march on for a few more years. It looks like there is one more update, planned for the 2024 Jeep Renegade, which should keep this model fresh and competitive for some more time.
Details about this update are still unknown but we presume we could see similar changes to the ones that happened in the Brazilian market model last year. This would mean a few aesthetical tweaks, along with a couple of interior modifications. Moreover, the company might also bring some novelties under the hood.
2024 Jeep Renegade Design
So, the current generation is expected to remain in production for some more time. Therefore, most reports suggest some updates for the 2024 Jeep Renegade. Most likely, that would be a mild facelift, similar to the Brazilian market model. If that happens, the new Renegade would come with novelties at the front end, where we would see things like a new bumper, with new foglights, as well as a new grille and headlights, which would be slightly modified in their upper section, mainly due to the different hood design.
The rest of the SUV shouldn’t change much, though there is always room for smaller-scale updates, such as new wheels and color options. The mechanical aspect of the vehicle shouldn’t change either, so we count on a familiar driving experience, which leans toward comfort a little bit more than athleticism. Also, you may count on solid off-road performance, as all models come standard with an all-wheel-drive system. There is also the TrailHawk trim, with further off-road upgrades, such as higher ground clearance, additional traction control modes, hill descent control etc.
When it comes to interior design, the 2024 Jeep Renegade might come with some revisions as well. Some of the things we could see are a new steering wheel, as well as a new, digital instrument cluster, The rest of the dashboard might come with subtle revisions as well, while a new infotainment screen, with updated software, also sounds possible. Finally, there are typical updates, such as new color schemes, materials etc.
Of course, the overall cabin layout will remain the same, so you may expect the same seating organization. Due to the boxy shape, both rows are very generous with headroom, while legroom is pretty decent as well. As a result, both rows accommodate adults with ease. The cargo area offers around 18.5 cubic feet behind the second row and 50 cubic feet of the total cargo volume, which is quite typical for the segment.
As mentioned, this update could also bring a few updates in terms of standard and available features. We already talked about the possibility to see a digital instrument cluster, along with the new infotainment screen. Still, we presume that most things will remain the same as in the current model.
For reference, the current model comes standard with goodies like an 8.4-inch touch screen, navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, a USB port, HD Radio, satellite radio, a six-speaker stereo, remote keyless entry, push-button start and dual-zone automatic climate control.
Also, there are available features like a nine-speaker audio system, proximity keyless entry, remote start, ambient lighting and a panoramic sunroof, and we presume some of these might become part of the standard equipment in the next year’s model.
2024 Jeep Renegade Engines
When it comes to powertrain, standard models will most likely continue in the same way. Therefore, count on a familiar 1.3-liter turbo-four, which puts out 177 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque. The engine comes coupled with a 9-speed automatic transmission, which does a relatively decent job, though could be a little bit more responsive and refined. It’s also worth mentioning that all models come standard with all-wheel drive. When it comes to fuel economy, you may count on about 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, which is below average for the segment.
Some sources speculate about the possibility to see a new, plug-in hybrid powertrain option in the 2024 Renegade. That model would use the same system as the European-market version, which combines the same turbo-four with an electric motor, for a total output of 240 horsepower. The officials are still quiet on this matter.
2024 Jeep Renegade Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2024 Jeep Renegade will arrive sometime in the second half of the year, with a starting price of around 30.000 dollars. Of course, the competition will remain the same, in the form of models like the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-30, Hyundai Kona etc.
