Jeep Renegade

The Jeep Renegade is a subcompact crossover SUV produced by Stellantis under their Jeep marque.[7] It was first shown to the public in March 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show and production started in late August of that year. As of 2022, the Renegade is the smallest vehicle that is currently marketed by Jeep, slotting below the Compass. It is based on the FCA Small Wide 4×4 platform which is also shared with other FCA models, including from Fiat and Alfa Romeo brands.

Jeep Renegade 1.6 MultiJet (Germany)

At one time it was believed that the Renegade would replace the Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot in the Jeep lineup.[citation needed] The Patriot was discontinued after model year 2017, but the second generation Compass was launched in early 2017.

The Renegade is the first Jeep product to be produced exclusively outside of North America and is sold in the North American, European, Brazilian, South African, Australian, Japanese and Chinese markets. The vehicle is built in Melfi, Italy with the designation BU/520, alongside the related Fiat 500X; Goiana, Brazil[2] with the designation B1 (alongside Jeep Compass and Fiat Toro[8]); and in Guangzhou, China codenamed BQ.

Standard Renegade models come with front-wheel drive, with four-wheel drive available on Sport, Latitude and Limited trims.[9] In the US, the lineup consists of Sport, Latitude and Limited trims, all of which come with a choice of front- and four-wheel drive, as well as the Trailhawk trim, which is 4WD only.

The Renegade has an available My Sky dual-panel removable roof. The My Sky can be either retracted like a standard sunroof or removed completely for a more open-air experience, similar to that of the Jeep Wrangler.

Trim levelsEdit

In North America, the Renegade is sold in Sport, Latitude, Altitude, Limited and Trailhawk trim levels:


The base Sport model includes a 1.4L MultiAir Turbocharged Inline Four-Cylinder (I4) engine or a 2.4L multiair inline 4 engine, a six-speed manual transmission or 9 speed automatic transmission, sixteen-inch, black-finished steel wheels, a black-finished front grille, black side mirrors and door handles, the Uconnect 3.0 AM/FM stereo w/ USB, iPod, and 3.5-millimeter auxiliary audio input jacks and four speakers, a heater, dual air conditioning, cloth seating surfaces, a 3.5-inch monochromatic instrument cluster display screen, remote keyless entry with power door locks, and more. The Power and Air Group adds air conditioning and power windows.

The mid-level Latitude model includes the Sport's standard equipment, plus seventeen-inch black-accented alloy wheels, exterior-colored side mirrors and door handles, the Uconnect 5.0BT AM/FM stereo w/ USB, iPod, and 3.5-millimeter auxiliary audio input jacks with five-inch color touch-screen display, voice command, Uconnect hands-free Bluetooth phone and stereo wireless audio streaming and six speakers, power windows, air conditioning, and more. The MySky removable "sunroof" roof panels, both manually-removable or power-retractable, are available on this model and higher-end models. In Europe, this is called Longitude.


The top-of-the-line Limited model includes the Latitude's standard equipment, plus the 2.4L TigerShark Inline Four-Cylinder (I4) engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission, leather seating surfaces, a silver-finished front grille, chrome side mirrors and door handles, and more.

Like the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, the Renegade Trailhawk features red front and rear tow hooks, a red 'Trail Rated 4X4' badge on both front upper fenders, a black vinyl decal in the center of the hood, and alloy wheels with black-painted accents. The Trailhawk model emphasizes the Renegade's off-road capabilities, and is meant for the avid off-roader.

2019 model yearEdit

2019 Renegade
Renegade PHEV

In June 2018, the Renegade was updated with some slight aesthetic touches: the front and rear bumpers have been redesigned, new LED headlamps (their design is inspired by the ones used for the Wrangler) were adopted, and the front grille is larger.

The infotainment system was upgraded with a new, more up-to-date processor and a more generous display that varies from 7" up to 8.4" in the navigator version. The displays are all multitouch and the customizable menus also offering the possibility to adjust the air conditioning. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility was introduced.

The Latitude version now also has USB jack on the back of the armrest dedicated to passengers sitting in the rear seats.

The European version introduced the new gasoline engines of the Global Small Engine (FireFly) family produced by FCA Poland Powertrain in Bielsko Biala (POLAND) in two versions: 1.0 L Turbo 3-cylinder 120 hp with direct injection, Multiair system and GPF filter, and 1.3 L Turbo Multiair with direct injection and GPF filter 110 kW (148 hp; 150 PS) and 132 kW (177 hp; 179 PS). The 1.0 L is available with a 5-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive, the 1.3 L with a 6-speed manual transmission, a 6-speed automatic double clutch or a 9-speed ZF automatic with front or 4-wheel drive. The diesel engines introduced the SCR system and are approved Euro6D-Temp.[19]

In September 2018 the facelifted Renegade was unveiled for the North American market (MY2019) which introduced the 1.3 L GSE Turbo Multiair engine with 132 kW (177 hp; 179 PS) as a replacement for the 1.4 L Fire Turbo Multiair, while the 2.4 L Tigershark engine remains available. The North American model has the same changes applied to the European model.[20]

In October 2018, the updated version for the South American market produced by FCA of Goiana (Pernambuco) in Brazil was introduced and presents only aesthetic updates with the adoption for all versions of the Trailhawk bumpers; the front and rear headlamps remain those of the previous model. The engines for the South American market are the 1.8 L E.Torq Evo gasoline and the 2.0 L Multijet diesel.[21]

2022 changesEdit

For 2022, all models receive a standard U Connect 4C 8.4-inch (8.4") touchscreen infotainment system, which includes SiriusXM Satellite Radio, SiriusXM Travel Link, and SiriusXM Guardian services, all with included trial subscriptions, as well as integrated GPS navigation and HD Radio. A new (RED) Edition, in partnership with Product Red, is also available. Based on the mid-level Latitude trim, the (RED) Edition adds nineteen-inch (19") tires and Granite Crystal-finished aluminum-alloy wheels, Colorado Red exterior badging, Ruby Red front and rear door speaker grille bezels and outer instrument panel bezels, Gloss Black transmission shifter and center console bezels, and Ruby Red accent stitching on the seats, steering wheel, center console lid, and transmission shifter boot. Available in Colorado Red, Alpine White, Black, and Sting-Gray, proceeds from all sales of the (RED) Edition will be donated to the Global Fund.

For the base Sport trim, the Beige interior color option has been discontinued, and the Jeep Active Safety Group now comes as standard equipment on all Renegade models. Nineteen-inch (19") tires and diamond-cut aluminum-alloy wheels are now available on the Limited trim when equipped with the optional Sun, Sound, and Wheels Package, which adds a dual-pane power panoramic moonroof and a nine-speaker Alpine premium amplified surround-sound audio system with a subwoofer.[22]

The 2.4 L engine option was discontinued for the US market.

2023 changesEdit

For 2023, Jeep has unveiled a refreshed model of the Renegade for the Brazilian market. Featuring revised front-end styling and a revised 1.3L "Turbo-Flex" Turbocharged Inline Four-Cylinder (I4) gasoline engine known as the "T270", the new model is also expected to debut for the rest of the world for the 2023 model year.[23]

For 2023, in the US market, Jeep has discontinued the entry level Sport trim and all front-wheel drive versions of the Renegade, thus making all-wheel drive standard across the board. Latitude is now the entry trim level on the Renegade. Altitude, Trailhawk, and Limited remain available.
