Jeep will officially unveil the EU-spec 2019 Renegade at the Torino Motor Show, in Italy, this Wednesday.
Spotted several times by our spy photographers while undergoing tests, the smallest model in the company’s lineup will get all sorts of design updates. There’s a redesigned grille, new front bumper, relocated fog lamps, different bumper at the rear and refreshed taillights. It’s very likely that along with the modified styling, the baby Jeep will also receive new exterior colors and rim patterns.
Inside, the 2019 Jeep Renegade won’t get a significant makeover. Still, expect new trim materials, a couple of extra storage compartments and a revised Selec-Terrain shifter.

The engine lineup will be extended with the addition of new units. In the official release announcing its debut on June 6, the manufacturer talks about “a new family of three- and four-cylinder petrol engines”. These will be a 120PS (118hp / 88kW) 1.0-liter and a 1.3-liter mill with two outputs: 150PS (148hp / 110kW) and 180PS (177hp / 132kW).
More details about the Euro-spec version of the facelifted Jeep Renegade, probably along with an extensive image gallery, will be released in the second half of June, during the first media drive.
It remains to be seen if the 2019 Jeep Renegade will get the same powertrains and updates in the U.S., but the visual makeover might lead to a slight price bump. Right now, the current base grade that can be had from an MSRP of $18,445.
