New Cars 2016: Jeep


American SUV-maker Jeep’s all-new Renegade readies itself to enter the Singapore car market this year

What: Renegade
When: TBA
How Much: TBA, but likely most affordable Jeep to date

The Renegade is something of a, well, Renegade for the American SUV brand. It’s actually the fruit of the Chrysler-Fiat pairing and Jeep’s first small SUV.

Based on the Fiat 500X, it’s quite compact at 4.2-metres long with a 2,570mm wheelbase.

Currently Chrysler-Jeep Singapore is still in the process of seeing how feasible the Renegade would be for the local market, but if it is, we’d place our bets on a version with a 1.4-litre turbocharged gasoline engine with 160bhp and a nine-speed automatic gearbox option with front-wheel drive.
