Jeep® Avenger Making Its Way To Brazil By 2025!

But It Won't Be All-Electric!

Jeep® is gearing up to introduce its latest offering, the Jeep Avenger, to the Brazilian market. The production of this exciting new model is set to take place at the Stellantis Assembly Plant in Betim (MG), and it is expected to debut alongside the new Fiat Argo, both based on the CMP modular platform utilized by Peugeot in Argentina and Citroën in Brazil. With its launch projected around 2025, the Avenger will bring fierce competition to established rivals like the Volkswagen T-Cross and Nivus, Chevrolet Tracker, Fiat Pulse, and Nissan Kicks.

Contrary to initial speculations, the Brazilian version of the Jeep Avenger will come equipped with a hybrid engine, rather than an all-electric powertrain. Jeep believes that this decision will best cater to the diverse needs of Brazilian customers, offering both eco-friendly benefits and the convenience of conventional fuel.

Designed to meet the demands of European customers, the Jeep Avenger boasts a functional design that emphasizes 360-degree protection and uncompromised freedom of movement. This feature makes it ideal for both urban commuting and off-road adventures. The subcompact crossover has room to comfortably seat five passengers within its 4.08-meter (14.4 feet) frame. Despite its compact size, the interior offers remarkable versatility and ample space. The 1-meter (3.28 feet) wide square-shaped cargo area is ingeniously adaptable, featuring multiple modular storage pockets and a movable central tunnel to accommodate various user preferences.

Under the hood, the Avenger is rumored to house a turbocharged 1.0-liter T200 inline-three-cylinder engine, supplemented by a belt-start generation (BSG) system similar to Jeep and Ram’s eTorque mild-hybrid technology. This innovative system not only adds extra torque to the vehicle’s thermal engine but also generates electrical energy to charge the supplementary 12-volt Lithium-Ion battery. This arrangement works in tandem with the conventional electrical system, ensuring optimal efficiency and performance.

Jeep envisions the Avenger as a direct competitor to well-established crossovers in the Brazilian market. By leveraging its functional design, hybrid powertrain, and adaptable interior, the Avenger aims to capture the hearts of adventure seekers and city dwellers alike. With its exceptional maneuverability and robust off-road capabilities, this crossover is set to become a symbol of versatility and practicality in the automotive landscape.

With its distinctive features and strong performance attributes, the Jeep Avenger promises to make a significant impact on the Brazilian automotive scene, forging a new path for the iconic American brand in the country.

Actually have interest in E-torque as a feature for the Hurricane powered Grand Cherokee, Charger and Challenger. Improves gas mileage, improves performance and can be classified as a mild hybrid. That “power shot” feature from the Hornet could be adopted as a fun feature on the two muscle cars and perhaps a way to augment off road capability for the Jeep. This seems to be a proven system that might be considered and extend the life cycle of the gas powered vehicles that people still demand and make government types happy that there is something electric helping reduce fuel consumption and pollution. Something to consider. That power shot feature is like a Nitro boost that could incentivize Dodge buyers across the brand range.

Slap the powertrains from the hornet in this thing and it'd be the perfect replacement for the Renegade. Avenger sounds cool

A high voltage electrical system is needed for something like the power shot. Twelve volts or even 48 volts just won't cut it for that sort of gimmickry.

The bureaucrats running the socialist s___ show are dictating battery electric. They don't give a rat's tail about what's best for us citizens or this country, because most bureaucrats aren't elected. GM had offered 12 volt mild hybrid options on some of their vehicles way back in the bankruptcy days. The system worked quite well, but the battery supply dried up when a major oil company bought the supplier. Battery electric is the one size fits all panacea no matter what reality demonstrates otherwise. What makes "government types" happy is having their pockets lined. Follow the money trail.

The next generation, 48 volt, mild hybrid system for the rear drive cars has an electric motor in the transmission, like what the high voltage plugin hybrid Grand Cherokee and Wrangler have. The BSG is retained because it allows for starting the IC engine on the fly.

Slap the powertrains from the hornet in this thing and it'd be the perfect replacement for the Renegade.

The PHEV powertrain from the Renegade is used in the Hornet. The Renegade and Compass had it first. The Renegade, along with the ICE powered Fiat 500 and Panda, had the 12 volt BSG mild hybrid setup in Europe well before this Brazilian Jeep Avenger. These technologies never crossed the Atlantic.
