The 2017 Jeep Renegade is a newest addition to the famous lineup, and by the look of things, the reception is going to be just fine. This compact crossover SUV is looking at some stiff competition this year, but it would appear to stick to the old formula of adding some parts, technologies and brushing up on the exterior in order to draw the attention of its loyal customers.
2017 Jeep Renegade Release Date
As for the release date of the 2017 Jeep Renegade, we can expect it to arrive in showrooms by the end of the year, or in early 2017 in the worst case scenario. It all depends on whether you live in Europe or in the U.S.
Price for 2017 Jeep Renegade
The price of the 2017 Jeep Renegade is still unknown. However, the previous models as well as the competition give us a rough estimate of $20,000 to $23,000 for the base version.
Exterior of Jeep Renegade
On the outside, the 2017 Jeep Renegade will bring little in terms of appearance and the overall vibe. Apparently, the design is still holding its own, so the decision has been made to postpone the inevitable overhaul for a year or two, at least.
Since the new Renegade is built for five people, the dimensions are expected to remain roughly the same: 4.2 m in length and 2.5 m for the space between the wheels. The lights and bumpers are going to be tweaked a little, so the compact SUV will manage to stand apart from the previous versions, if only a little.
The new fascia, reworked front and rear bumpers and a new grille complete with LED lights will certainly add a bit to its personality.
The interior design of the new 2017 Jeep Renegade is expected to offer a pleasant experience in a wide variety of color options, mostly classic black, moderate sand and brown. There is going to be plenty of room inside and the manufacturer has not been skimpy with the materials, either.
As for infotainment, we are looking at a 6 and a half inches of pure practicality, keeping you appraised of any relevant developments in the simplest, most efficient way possible. The tranquil sensation when you sit behind the multi-functional steering wheel is mostly due to the soft steering as well as the improved ignition system.
Of course, automatic climate control, standard touch screen functions and latest safety technology are going to be included.
Jeep Renegade Engine
The new 2017 Jeep Renegade is looking at two confirmed engine choices. One of them is the 1.4 L I-4 MultiAir Turbo, capable of dishing out 160 hp. The transmission is going to be a 6-speed manual.
Aside from that, there is the 2.4 L I-4 with 20 extra hp, and its 9-speed automatic transmission. Unfortunately, fuel efficiency is not going to be a strong suit for the new Renegade, as it is only going to get 14 miles out of a gallon if you drive in urban areas, or 20 if you stick to the highway.
