Jeep will be unveiling the 2019 Jeep Renegade at the Turin Auto Show in Turin, Italy, today. This will be the first time we will get a chance to see the 2019 Jeep Renegade’s refreshened styling cues. Although we get to see the vehicle in it’s Euro-spec form, it shows us what is coming to the other markets around the world in the styling department.
Taking many of the cues from the 2018 Jeep Renegade B-UTE Concept from this year’s Easter Jeep Safari, the new compact Jeep gets a more brawny front fascia. By pushing the trademark seven slot grille down and making the slots wider, it has given the Renegade a more aggressive look. Fog lights have been pushing down to the bottom of the front fascia and LED headlights are now available on the higher level trims.
The rear looks very similar to the 2018 model. The tail lamps are new for the 2019 model year featuring an all red lens, that still pays homage to the jerry cans from military Jeeps of the past with an “X” pattern molded into the lens.
European models get an all-new 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that will make about 120 horsepower. Two different four-cylinder models will be offered with power outputs of 150 horsepower and 180 horsepower. We expect the Renegade to retain four-cylinder powertrains here in the NAFTA market. We know Jeep is working on an electric assisted model, as we have seen in previous spy shots.
