Here you will find U.S. and Canadian sales figures for the Jeep Renegade. The Jeep Renegade is a subcompact crossover SUV produced by Jeep, a division of Stellantis (formerly Fiat Chrysler Automobiles). Introduced in 2014, the Renegade marked Jeep’s foray into the subcompact SUV segment and was aimed at appealing to younger buyers and those in urban settings while retaining the brand’s off-road ethos. The Renegade is known for its rugged design, off-road capability, and fuel efficiency.
Jeep Renegade Overview
The Jeep Renegade was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2014. It is the smallest SUV in the Jeep lineup. It was developed in collaboration between American and Italian engineers, leveraging the shared resources of Fiat and Chrysler at the time. The Renegade is built on the Small Wide 4×4 platform, which it shares with the Fiat 500X.
The design of the Renegade is distinctive, with a mix of traditional Jeep cues like the seven-slot grille and round headlights combined with a boxy, almost playful body shape. This design aimed to give it a rugged look while being compact and city-friendly. Inside, the Renegade has a contemporary design with various unique design elements, such as a topographic map design on some storage areas and “X” motifs inspired by military equipment.
The Renegade is available in four trim levels: Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk, and Limited. It is powered by a 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 177 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive is standard on all models.
Jeep Renegade Sales Figures
The Renegade’s quirky design and off-road capabilities in a small package have made it a distinctive offering in the crowded subcompact SUV segment. While it has been praised for its character and off-road prowess, especially in the Trailhawk trim, some critiques have centered on its on-road dynamics and powertrain refinement compared to competitors. One of the notable aspects of the Renegade is that it is produced in Melfi, Italy, marking a significant shift in Jeep’s traditionally U.S.-centric production approach. The Renegade is exported to various global markets from this facility. Its international appeal is evident in its sales across Europe, North America, and other regions.
