Facelifted 2019 Renegade Aiming To Boost Jeep’s Sales Next Year

Jeep continues the development of the facelifted Renegade, with our spotting a camouflaged test car parked next to the current model.

The automaker hopes that the influx of new as well as refreshed models in Europe will boost its sales in the region and help them benefit from the current SUV trend. Jeep is planning to launch the facelifted Renegade, the revised Cherokee towards the end of the year in Europe, before the two new models be joined shortly after by the all-new Wrangler.

As for the updated Renegade, Jeep plans to give it a redesigned front end that includes a new grille, new lighting signature and new fog lights, as well as a new rear bumper along with refreshed taillights.

The new exterior styling is expected to draw inspiration from the company’s latest models, including the Wrangler and the Cherokee. The headlights are expected to be LED units that mimic the design of those in the Wrangler while the new front bumper will have its fog lights repositioned.

The interior of the smallest Jeep available is expected to remain pretty much unchanged, given that the company only recently updated the Renegade’s cabin with new seat fabrics, bezel treatments, a pair of new storage compartments and a revised Selec-Terrain shifter.

The updated 2019 Jeep Renegade is expected to offer the company’s latest driver assistance systems, as well as smaller revisions to its off-road arsenal. We still don’t know if Jeep plans to make any changes to the Renegade’s engine range, which currently includes a turbocharged 160hp 1.4-liter and a bigger 180hp 2.4-liter unit.

The facelifted Jeep Renegade is expected to break cover towards the end of the year as a 2019MY, with sales to begin shortly after.
