Originally launched in 2014, the Jeep Renegade is one of many city SUVs to hit the market to fill a growing segment. Four years later, in 2018, the first restyling arrived, and now he is preparing for another facelift.
The new spy photos of the American car arrive from Brazil and anticipate all the news that will be seen once the year 2022 enters. The images show a prototype wrapped in a camouflaged body, although its iconic squared shapes have not changed much.
Like any redesign, the new details will largely focus on the front and rear bumpers, as well as the design of the headlights. At the front, the position lights have been integrated into the circular headlight, while the fog lights (located at the bottom of the grille on the current model) appear to have disappeared.
It should be noted that the Jeep in the photographs may be the Brazilian version or a specific configuration, therefore, it is difficult to understand exactly what are the changes that we will see in the European market. However, there will be no shortage of new options in terms of rims and terms of body colors.
As far as the interior is concerned, the Renegade could update the instrumentation and infotainment system with something quite similar to what the Jeep Compass has. The steering wheel should also receive a design similar to that of the ‘brother’ model.
The other novelties have to do with mechanics. Jeep is preparing to say goodbye to the blocks 1.0 T3 of 120 HP of power and the 1.3 T4 of 150 HP, to move to the new 1.5 T4 Firefly.
The latter integrates a 48V mild-hybrid system, with three power versions (130, 160, and 190 hp), in addition to lower consumption compared to the rest of the engines in the process of retirement.
The 190 and 240 hp plug-in hybrid versions and the 131 hp 1.6 diesel have also been confirmed. In a few months, we will get rid of doubts and we will see the restyling of this American SUV.
