American carmaker Jeep has just revealed their India-spec Compass. It will be launched in India in the third quarter of 2017 but the big news we have stumbled upon is the Renegade coming to India. According to reports, the Renegade is headed to India and will most probably be revealed at the 2018 Auto Expo.
The Renegade is the smallest offering from Jeep and is offered in both, 4x2 and 4x4 setups in the international market. It is sold in four trims - Sport, Latitude, Altitude and Trailhawk. While the first three trims are powered by a 1.4-litre MultiAir turbocharged petrol engine which is capable of churning out 160PS and 250Nm torque, the Trailhawk which is the most capable trim of the Renegade has a 2.4-litre naturally aspirated MultiAir petrol engine that makes 180PS and 237Nm torque.
As of now, Jeep has not revealed anything officially and thus it cannot be confirmed what avatar the Renegade will come to India in, however it will be slotted underneath the Compass and could become the second Jeep car to be built in India.
The Renegade will be an ideal vehicle for Indian conditions, small and nimble, but powerful enough to go anywhere.
