The Jeep Avenger is one impressive SUV. Not only does it present cutting edge technology, it’s darn good looking to boot. I can see the Avenger making it to North America and South America too once production sites are established. I predict that the route will be manufacture in Brazil, export to Mexico, then to North American markets. Gets around import trade barriers, establishes electric build capacity in Brazil and gives the US market a fully electric entry level Jeep in a new segment. Let’s wait and see. In the mean time the Avenger will sell like hot cakes in its targeted market.

Doesn’t meet U.S. standards, plus Average Transaction price would be lower than Stellantis U.S. mark.

When people said Forign vehicles don’t meet US standards, what does that really mean? What are the big thing that make it so different for our US market? ie: Europe’s Jeep Comander, Mexico’s New Dodge Journey and Dodge Neon. What standards are different and why is it said it would cost to much to up date for the US? I have been trying to figure this out for years but have never found info on the difference between US standards and countries outside the US. Apparently only Canada shares the same standards with US vehicles. I am surprised Mexico doesn’t since they produce many US vehicles.

Yes stuff like refinement/driver comfort to legal & safety such as seatbelts.

Holy ****, a 54 kWh battery (bigger than the PSA CMP EVs), uConnect infotainment and the interior shares a lot with the 500e.
This is amazing! I was expecting just a re-badged Mokka-e but this is actually a great improvement that uses a LOT more FCA parts than what I expected. And with a decent battery for this class of vehicles.
This might even be an eMini model?

No, they switched from eMini to eCMP in 2020 – before Stellantis was born. There were reports about letters to suppliers by that time. I think all Stellantis cars will get Uconnect.

Glad they did add some skid plates to make is a bit more durable than the standard PSA eCMP.

I thought European safety standards were generally more stringent, like limiting exterior projections for pedestrian safety, etc. Maybe i'm wrong on that.

Refinement/driver comfort I've generally assume NA to be more "picky", but no reason this design and being electric/BEV instead of a high NVH, low power output ICE powertrain wouldn't be acceptable in NA.

I wonder if AWD will be dependent on the Hybrid powertrain?

But it seems they took some lessons from eMini.
Yes, FCA strategy without a merger was E-Mini, but then during Covid lockdown they made a licensing arrangement with PSA to avoid spending while avoiding violating E.U. Antitrust rules.

Well aside from the ground clearance and lack of AWD. It is a good looking Jeep'ish looking vehicle. Styling and interior are very good.

I love the rear design. And the trunk is bigger than the one from the Renegade. You can fit a lot of junk in it 😬:

Comparison of interiors with the 500e:

You can see some similarities in a few molds. And obviously on the uConnect system.
