The Jeep Renegade is now on sale here in Limited trim and equipped with a 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo engine, promising to deliver a unique combination of best-in-class drive quality, on-road driving dynamics, fuel efficiency and world-class refinement. Built with a generation of youthful and adventurous drivers in mind, the Jeep Renegade features a host of innovative safety and advanced technology.
Designed in the U.S.A and crafted in Italy, the Renegade showcases Jeep’s global resources and dedication to meeting customer needs in the world market. Equipped with Jeep’s iconic trademark – the familiar seven-slot grille, circular headlamps, and an upright stance, the Renegade embraces the brand’s heritage styling while looking every bit suited to ply daily urban traffic.
As the first Jeep vehicle built exclusively outside of the U.S.A, the development of the Renegade was a global coordination of Jeep engineering and design, with Italian craftsmanship and execution.
The 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo four-cylinder engine featured in the Renegade Limited offers 138bhp and 230Nm of torque for a spirited driving experience. Mated to a six-speed dry dual-clutch automatic transmission, the 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo engine transmits its power through high-strength components throughout the drivetrain. Boost pressure is dynamically managed to provide a broad torque curve over a wide variety of ambient conditions, translating to a comfortable and dynamic city drive.
Innovative MultiAir valve-actuation technology controls intake air cylinder-by-cylinder and stroke-by-stroke, boosting fuel economy up to 7.5 percent. As such, the Renegade is stated to deliver a combined fuel efficiency of 16.9km/L.
The Renegade also features a noise, vibration and harshness package, which includes laminated acoustic windshield glass, under-flush rolled-framed doors with triple seals and acoustic wheel-well liners to absorb road noise. At the same time, Jeep engineers maximised the vehicle’s structural design and tuned the interior environment for quieter sound levels by isolating powertrain, wind, and road noise. Combined, these design improvements provide the Renegade with world-class interior sound quality.
For safety, the Renegade comes packed with various safety and security features such as Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, ParkView rear back-up camera with dynamic grid lines, Electronic Stability Control with electronic roll mitigation, LaneSense Departure Warning, and six standard air bags.
Inside, the Renegade offers technology features once found only in upper-segment vehicles, and makes them attainable to customers in the growing small sport utility vehicle segment – including Jeep’s award-winning Uconnect touchscreen and the segment’s largest full-colour instrument cluster.
Key features available on the Uconnect 5.0 system include a 5-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, USB port and auxiliary audio jack input. Filling the Renegade’s gauge cluster in front of the driver is an available 7-inch, full-colour, premium multi-view display, featuring a reconfigurable function that enables drivers to personalise information.
