Jeep India is aiming at heavy localisation for the new Renegade in a bid to keep the prices competitive.

The rear of the Renegade looks mostly unchanged from the outgoing model, save for the aforementioned redone taillights. It has an entirely new shape and design, with the turn signals sharing space with new vents and the fog lights have been moved inboard a bit, sharing real estate with the slimmer lower grille opening. Also, the outer casing looks more refined thanks to the new gloss black shade instead of matte black found on the older model. The obvious changes have to do mainly with the lights: the front headlights are new, and now get LED lighting encircling them, while the rear lights have also been modified, although they retain their familiar x-shaped design.

In addition to subtle exterior updates, Jeep added new engines to its European lineup, including a 1.0-liter good for 120 hp and a 1.3-liter producing 150 or 180 hp in different states of tune.

Inside, a larger infotainment screen takes the place of the current 6.5-inch unit, absorbing the buttons and controls previously surrounding it.

More details regarding the 2019 Jeep Renegade will be revealed in the coming months.

This new engine is the same as seen on the 2019 Cherokee and the Wrangler.

Jeep's smallest entry, the Renegade, is getting some tweaks midway through its life cycle.

There's no mention of a diesel engine, so it's possible this may be the first concrete result of Jeep's promise to drop diesels from its line-up. The Jeep Renegade is expected to be launched in the Indian market too. It is also believed that a mild hybrid unit might be introduced in the Renegade in the future.

Jeep is also expected to launch a turbocharged diesel engine in specific global markets as well.
