Jeep Renegade expected to launch in India soon

After the unveil of the Jeep Compass, the automaker has further plans for the Indian automotive market by unveiling Renegade.

The Jeep Renegade, which is from the similar line-up as Jeep Compass, will be featured as the company’s cheapest SUV in India.

To sum it all up, the Jeep Renegade is expected to compete with the likes of Renault Duster. However, the Renegade is expected to offer a much intuitive design just like the original Jeep Renegade. Reports noted that the SUV will be bigger in size compared to Duster with a beefy layout.

As far as the specs under the hood, the Jeep Renegade may offer the same engine as found on the Compass variant. However, the power output is reportedly going to be lower on this model. This brings up speculations that the vehicle may have the locally produced 2.0-litre MultiJet diesel engine unit with 140hp power as well as a 1.4-litre MultiAir petrol motor unit with 140hp. As per the price tag, the Jeep Renegade is reported to offer a price of Rs. 1 lakh higher than Hyundai Creta.
