We recently talked about the 2019 Jeep Renegade’s all-new 1.3-liter turbo engine and how it would be making its debut on the Renegade Limited models as standard equipment in September. Well, today we are breaking down the official production dates for Jeep’s smallest entry.
The 2019 model year launch will start on September 3rd, with the launch of the Limited model. Production of the 2019 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk model will start production on October 15th and will also feature the all-new 1.3-liter turbo as standard equipment.
The Renegade Sport and Latitude models will continue to be produced in their 2018 configuration until November 27th, when they will launch those trim models in their 2019 model year configuration. Both of those models will come standard with the 2.4-liter Tigershark I-4 engine. The Latitude model will be available with the 1.3-liter turbo as optional equipment and the trim level will be available with the Limited’s optional LED Lamps & Safety Content.
The good news for those who still want to order a 2018 Jeep Renegade Sport and Latitude model as of September 3rd, the optional 2.4-liter will become standard equipment on those models.
It’s a bit confusing with both 2018 and 2019 models to be rolling out of the plant at the same time. However, this will allow steady production with the new powertrain is rolled out on upper trim levels.
Currently, Jeep dealers are taking orders for 2018 Sport & Latitude models as well as 2019 Limited models for those interested in customizing their Renegades. Unfortunately, Renegade Trailhawk ordering is not available at this time.
We should start seeing 2019 Renegade Limited models appear in showrooms in late-September or early October.
