Jeep Showcases Updated 2019 Renegade In Turin

It’s been over four years now since Jeep rolled out the Renegade, the boxier version of the Fiat 500X. So while it may not be time for complete replacement just yet, it was about due for a bit of a facelift. And that’s just what it has received.

Unfortunately Fiat Chrysler has revealed precisely squat in terms of details, and only three images to show what it’s done to the baby Jeep.

What we can tell from those images, though, is that the Renegade has had some minor nips and tucks here and there. Those are new headlights recessed next to Jeep’s signature seven-slot grille, and look closer to the units on the new Wrangler. The sheetmetal in the front fascia dips down lower around the airdam to encompass new vents and daytime running lights. And the lines look slightly more sharply creased.

The subtle changes appear to continue around back, where the taillights we saw in the teaser the other day look different to the existing model’s. The tailgate also incorporates a new handle. And though our eyes could be deceiving us, the spoiler trailing from the edge of the roof looks to have been reshaped as well.

We can’t see inside yet, or under the hood. But we’re expecting FCA to have taken the opportunity to update the equipment in the cabin and fit it with upgraded engines.

We’ll have to wait to find out more as the 2019 Jeep Renegade has just made its debut today at the Turin Auto Show – way up in the north of Italy from where the vehicle’s built in Melfi.

    US wants our 1,6 Diesel…We want your 2,4 Tigershark with Manual of course…

      Us versus then douchebag mentality. Oh, boy…

      Jeep is American as apple pie even if a few econo-turds get made for Asian Europe with the Jeep name put on it. Get over it.

      We’ll pass on the 1.6, what we want is the 2.0 diesel unit! 😀

      • Christian

        sorry…. Ya mean the 2 liter MJT– 🙂

      A 2.4L engine with only 184hp in most European countries doesn’t make any sense. It pays a lot of taxes in emissions and/or engine capacity. And poor gas mileage, specially in city driving.

    • EM1

      I don’t want the Tigershark, the more powerful Hurricane is the way to go!

  • Six_Tymes

    Looks better, but that model is not my style. However, that blue color is really impressive.

  • Carmelo Van Cabboi

    Very, vry nice front end and happy to see finally the led-lamps. The color is wonderful!

    Those new lights are definitely a great addition. But that color! It’s stealing the show all to itself

  • Victor Ferreira

    I actually think the refresh did wonders for the looks, especially in the front. And that shade of blue, nice!

  • :/ Yurr

    That looks a lot better Jeep. Nice job…Or it might just be that blue color lol.

  • DMJ

    Best part (for Europe) is that they finally removed those hideous orange reflectors in the front. The blue color seems the same Montecarlo Blue from the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, really nice.

    Renegade always looked liked like a chick ride to me..
    Perhaps https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/248da36c30ec015c85c7783097a1ae65181b925429152b6dfb4aa199eb1edccf.jpg a set of 20” mud grips 2.0 and pickup version would ‘roid it up!

    • Mill0048

      Wow, that front clip really looks nice as a truck cab!

  • Autoexperte

    it looks good

  • TheHake

    I want it in Trailhawk guise with the 1.3T engine and automatic. But we wont get it.

  • Enter Ranting

    So, new headlights and new fake grilles in the bumpers on this Fiat. Check. I’m gonna pass.

  • maserati123

    Nice to see FCA making some strides with Alfa,Jeep and RAM,now it has to fix all the other brands, and quickly.

  • SteersUright

    Love how this little Jeep looks, they really nailed the design. I’ve just heard they’re rather poor performers, bad to drive, and consume more fuel than competitors. Shame, a tiny Jeep off-roader that drives great is exactly what Jeep needs these days.
