Great news brings new 2020 Jeep Renegade! In order to follow the competition and make this model attractive to the young buyers, the manufacturer has decided to offer a hybrid plug-in engine along with the other engine versions that were offered before. It should make this car more competitive, which is important since the SUV and crossovers market became very crowdy in the past few years.
- The model has a new hybrid engine.
- There is a great and unique design of the car.
- It is not known which equipment will be exactly offered.
- The price is not known and could be high.
There should not be many changes in the design of 2020 Jeep Renegade from the last models. For those who do not know, this is very attractive and cute compact SUV, literally boxy shaped with recognizable gridded grille and rounded front lights. The rear end is flat, making with the flat roof also boxy shape, and with modern but simple rear lights. However, the car is not literally boxy, it has chubby sides of the doors and slightly flat roof, with additions on the bottom as a protection.
Even though the change in the engine does not mean change in the design of the car, there could be few changes in the cabin of 2020 Jeep Renegade. Do not forget, the old model had a great and comfortable cabin with great equipment, mostly in term of driving assistant systems. The cabin was also made of two-tone leather and with great details on the dashboard and steering wheel.
Let’s remember that 2020 Jeep Renegade always had good engines under the hood. Last year model had three great petrol engines literally for every type of drivers and buyers. The base model had a 2.4-liter petrol unit with 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. There was a version with the 1.3-liter petrol model, too, that produces 170 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque. However, this time the manufacturer has promised a completely new engine, a plug-in hybrid model, which will bring completely new fuel consumption numbers and the price. It should follow the competition like Chrysler Pacifica and Ram 1500 which already brought their electric versions.
2020 Jeep Renegade Release Date and Price
Since the 2020 Jeep Renegade comes with the new engine, the price that current model brought of $20,000 is surely too low for it. However, the manufacturer has not said anything about the new model price or any other information, so we could only predict the much higher number, or at least new trim version with the upgraded price for it. The new model should be on the market during next year, but according to some rumors, it could be prolonged to 2020. In any case, new plug-in Renegade will blow away the competition.
