2019 Jeep Renegade To Get A New Turbo Engine

 

 

Jeep has recently announced that the newly refreshed 2019 Renegade, the smallest model its lineup, will get a brand new engine and a new gearbox on its top trims along with some slight styling changes. The changing of the engine on the top trims is a bit unusual in that the new one has less horsepower than the 180 horsepower, 2.4-liter engine offered as an option on the entry-level model and standard equipment on the Renegade’s Sport and Latitude trims. There’s also new front fascias, new taillights, new wheels, new active safety features, adjustments to the air intake and more body-color trim.

The New Engine

The 2019 Jeep Renegade’s new engine is a 177 horsepower 1.3-liter turbo four that delivers a healthy 200 pound-feet of torque at just 1,750 rpm. The 1.4-liter Multiair turbo four engine it replaces puts out 175 pound-feet of torque at 3,900 rpm. Now the top engine, the new 1.3-liter turbo is now an option on the Sport and Latitude trims and standard equipment on the Limited and Trailhawk models. Jeep’s new engine working in tandem with a nine-speed automatic transmission is expected to yield better fuel economy as well as lower emissions. This is combined with stop-start and new active grille shutters. The Renegade has a new driveline with an increased crawl ratio of 21:1 which delivers a little more low-range shove off-road when combined with Active Drive Low. Jeep has gotten rid of the 6-speed manual transmission and even though the new Renegade can run on 87 octane, 91 octane is what Jeep recommends.

Styling And Safety Changes

A new front fascia and LED lighting on some of the trims is among the first thing people notice on the 2019 Jeep Renegade. The vehicle also has a lower new air intake and depending on which trim you pick, there’s more body-color trim. The 2019 Renegade also has new taillights and the Latitude and Limited trims have available 19-inch rims.
The Renegade has also added several new features that are now a part of the vehicle’s active safety suite. They include adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors and parallel/perpendicular park assist as part of its available Advanced Tech Group. To see how well a Jeep fits into your lifestyle, you can take one for a spin at Chapman Chrysler Jeep. While you can’t get your hands on a 2019 Jeep Renegade, you can buy a 2018 Jeep Renegade now.

A Better Renegade

With its new turbo engine, new colors, styling upgrades to the front and rear fascias, LED headlights, taillights and fog lamps, new advanced safety features, stop-start tech and nine-speed automatic transmission, the 2019 Jeep Renegade looks and performs better than ever before. With an MSRP of $23,625, the new Renegade offers great value and the potential for lots of exciting adventures. The refreshed crossover, which is built in Italy, is available with both front-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive. Even though the 2019 Jeep Renegade has a smaller engine, it is actually more powerful.

Whether your work or play keeps you on the paved roads or off-road and off the beaten path, the new 2019 Jeep Renegade is capable of handling it all with ease and style and will look very good doing it.
