All eyes are studying the horizon, awaiting the unveiling of the 2018 Jeep Renegade. The body styling of the new model is not expected to veer much from the 2017 version. This is not a bad thing, as the design release in 2015 has proven to be one of the most innovative and functional multi-tasking compacts SUV’s ever brought out.
2018 Jeep Renegade – Body Styling
The automotive insiders claim that major restyling of the smaller SUV from Jeep will not happen until 2020 or 2021. Any obvious changes will be superficial. Utility vehicles never gained popularity with the urban buyers until the size was brought down to accommodate narrow driving lanes, tighter corner maneuver demands and limited parking space. The Jeep has answered the call in many ways. The development of the Patriot, which is a trimmed down version of a Cherokee started a trend towards satisfying the practical needs of urban customers. The 2018 Jeep Renegade is also designed to offer the ability to cut through the heaviest traffic, fit in the tightest parking stalls and comfortably deliver you to the woods for a weekend fishing expedition with ease. Individuals desiring versatility and multi-tasking properties declare the Renegade a winner.
How Jeep Holds Up to the Off-Road Market
Leave it to Jeep to find a way to pack all of the needed extras to enable a smaller SUV to really hit the back roads with success. The Active Drive Low capabilities with the AWD also allow for solid movement along debris-littered trails and rocks without difficulty. However, the Selec-Terrain feature helps in crossing areas of sand, mud, water and snow with less chances of getting stuck. The 2018 Jeep Renegade is a true melding of fast-track urban comfort with off-road rugged performance.
Benefits of a Powertrain Repeat
The 2018 Jeep Renegade is expected to offer a repeat performance of the powertrain initially brought out in 2015. However, they see no reason to change a formula that has garnered much praise and favor with the buying public. The Sport and Latitude models are also expected to remain with a 1.4 liter, 160 HP turbocharged engine offering 184 pound-feet of torque. The 6-speed manual transmission and All-Wheel-Drive will eliminate much of the competition, with the exception of the Fiat 500X and also a Subaru Crosstrek. It is looking to be a banner year for the makers of Jeep in the urban market.
Choosing the Automatic
Many return buyers will want to stick with the 2.4 liter, 180 HP that delivers 175 pound-feet of engine torque due to the 9-speed automatic transmission. This should still be available on the Limited and Trailhawk models. This is the type of SUV that makes you want to go and explore the world.
Price, Availability Date and Recapitulate of the 2018 Jeep Renegade
According to some rumors, the 2018 Jeep Renegade will have a price range from $20,000 to 30,000. The field of competition is limited for this little SUV. The packaged power and performance mix have already earned many happy return customers. The hardest part for the most consumers is waiting to see what the final vision of the 2018 model presents. All indications are that the features the public found positive for the previous year model will remain. The wait for the 2018 Jeep Renegade has finally brought back excitement to the compact SUV market. Its release date is expected in the middle of 2018.
