European 2024 Jeep® Renegade Looks To Be Getting An Update

Should Follow In The Footsteps Of The Brazilian Model...

In a surprising turn of events, recent spy photos have unveiled the impending transformation of the European Jeep® Renegade’s interior for the 2024 model year. Despite the looming discontinuation of the Renegade in the North American market, Jeep seems determined to mark the B-segment SUV’s 10th anniversary with a subtle yet impactful facelift.

The Renegade, which first graced the automotive scene at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014, has been a staple in Jeep’s lineup. However, its 2023 Brazilian mid-cycle action (MCA) or update hinted at what’s to come for the European model’s interior in 2024.

These spy images, captured by Walter Vayr (@GabetzSPYUnit), reveal two Renegade prototypes shrouded in heavy camouflage over the instrument panel. While the exterior updates from the Brazilian model may not make their way to Europe, the interior is set for a noteworthy makeover.

The standout feature spotted beneath the camouflage is the new steering wheel design, borrowed from the Renegade’s sibling, the Compass. This shift promises a fresh aesthetic for the Renegade’s cabin, aligning with the brand’s commitment to staying modern and sophisticated.

However, the real story lies in the incorporation of autonomous technologies that are set to become standard across the 2024 Renegade lineup in Europe. One notable addition is the autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system, providing continuous monitoring of the traffic ahead. This advanced safety feature detects collision risks and issues alerts to the driver, activating the brakes automatically if necessary.

Furthermore, the Renegade will boast a lane maintenance assistant (LKA) system that reads road signs and corrects steering to prevent unintentional lane departures. Safety is further reinforced with a fatigue detector, blind-spot monitoring (BSM), rear traffic warning, and automatic high beam switching.

The interior upgrades extend beyond safety features, with an updated instrument panel offering a 7-inch full digital cluster option. This customizable display provides drivers with real-time information, including turbo pressure, power distribution to the wheels, and even G-force metrics. It should be a welcome addition to Europe’s electrified Renegade 4xe and e-Hybrid offerings.

Entertainment and connectivity are not left behind, as the 2024 Renegade should get an updated 8.4-inch Uconnect 5 infotainment system. Wireless integration for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for up to two smartphones, along with an induction cell phone charger with directed air conditioning output, should bring convenience to the forefront. Multiple USB inputs (both Type-A and Type-C ) cater to various devices, eliminating the need for adapters.

One thing we don’t think will make the cut is the “Jeep 1941” embossing on the central armrest, that the Brazilian model received. 

We should have more details in the upcoming days on these changes, as ordering for the 2024 model is scheduled to open by the end of the month for the European market.

Well where are they going to Assemble Them? Is there an appropriate trade agreement between the EU and Brazil? UK can get theirs from India.

Same question I posed yesterday. Popular vehicle, established nameplate, no replacement in sight and no where to build it if one is in development. Now Jeep updates the current one. Really! If this were a TV show they would call it a comedy. Trouble is, no one is laughing, certainly not shareholders like me.
Jeep has good product, arguably the most valuable brand on the planet, yet they can’t figure it out. I know I’ll be drummed out of the conversation, but the rush and foolish over investment in electrification might just be the fly in the ointment.
I’ve been schooled on trade restrictions, and safety code shortcomings and Brazilian industry’s inability to support global export, but it seems people are now gravitating to the possibility that all these issues can be resolved. One can not ignore or deny the talent and capability shown by this Stellantis enterprise on many fronts. Well guess what ??? Maybe Brazil just might need more respect and inclusion since Stellantis needs them more than they don’t.
I’d view the Brazil wing of the company as a transitional player, but a first string player in product development, to begin to integrate intelligently, their formidable presence and capability in the Stellantis global operation. Stellantis NA ignored the Commander, ignored the Rampage and ignored the obvious, Brazil is now a player off the soccer field, it’s time has come. Biggest question, why not?

500x getting same interior treatment or is it left to use up remaining supplier stock? I've always liked the 500x size as a PT replacement, but the interior is just not NA enough for me. The Renegade was similar and thus I shied away.


which layout would you prefer? (I do like the angled window/door controls of the X though...)

500X has a clear replacement with the 600 .... I am guessing this was to reduce the SKUs between the Compass and Renegade in the plants that make both.

Renegade lives on through 2025 in Europe, so the 2024 and 2025 models will have the interior update
