Facelifted Jeep Renegade to get upgraded interior tech and hybrid powertrain
Small SUV has its retro rugged styling tweaked and gains a larger infotainment screen inside - a hybrid will come later
The Jeep Renegade will be facelifted in 2019, with light changes to its exterior styling and new technology inside.
Exterior revisions will likely include revised LED daytime running lights and other such light tweaks, while the car’s rugged, retro-Jeep styling is a dead cert to remain.
Inside, a larger infotainment screen will take the place of the current 6.5in unit, absorbing the buttons and controls previously surrounding it. The new unit is still housed in the shaped surround so takes up no more space than the complete previous unit.
Jeep has previously confirmed to Autocar that there will eventually be a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol, 48V mild hybrid version of every car in its line-up. This will include the upgraded Renegade when it goes on sale in the UK in 2019. The American brand also has plans to give each of its models a plug-in hybrid variant by the end of the decade.
