The American SUV manufacturer, Jeep has been extensively testing the facelifted model of its globally popular SUV – Renegade. While we saw the first spy pictures of the Jeep Renegade facelift a few days ago, the recently leaked pictures give us a clearer idea about the changes the new model will receive.
The new spy pictures show that the new Renegade will share some of its design bits with the new Wrangler SUV. Features such LED headlamps and LED DRLs (daytime running lights) with circular design will be carried over from its elder sibling. The front radiator grille gets slightly slimmer, and it has also ditched the black colour for the new matte-grey shade. Read About – India-bound 2018 Jeep Renegade

The front bumper has also been revised with a new design and a monotone theme. You can also see the interior of the new Renegade.

Engine details of the new Jeep Renegade are still under the wraps. The global-spec model is expected to use the existing engine setup that includes multiple 1.4-litre to 2.4-litre petrol unit, petrol-ethanol and diesel motor. Rumour also has it that Jeep might introduce a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol powertrain on the new Renegade.
No changes will be made to the transmissions as well. The SUV will continue to come with four gearbox options – a 5-speed manual, a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic and a 9-speed automatic. Currently, the SUV carline comes with the standard front-wheel-drive system and Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive 4X4 systems. Read – New Jeep Cherokee Officially Revealed
