Default Re: Jeep Renegade spied testing in India

Is it just me or someone would tend to agree that our own home grown TUV 300 is very much a boxier version of renegade. I am sure the fit and finish may be class apart but seems so very similar to me both of them. Renegade gets more points for a better fascia and front for sure.

I have been waiting for almost 8 months now since I first heard of Renegade launch and it will be a huge ask to wait for another whole year to get my hands on one. Looks like patience is gonna slip away by then. They certainly need to launch it sooner. Hope they display and even launch it at upcoming Auto Expo. Would be a good time to announce the launch.

With all focus on Jeep Compass, Jeep RENEGADE will be launched in 2019.

The much awaited Jeep Renegade that was expected to be launched in 2018 has been delayed.
The Renegade is still undergoing tests to help the company decide what powertrains etc should be used on it. The focus also is towards enhancing Jeep’s service and sales network within the country, Hence the company doesn’t want to burden the dealers quickly, so that they focus on quality first.

I don't know whether this is the appropriate thread for this post, but this morning I saw a brand new red Jeep Wrangler, when I was walking my dog. Had a Pride Motors sticker and had the temporary yellow sticker of a newly registered vehicle. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a picture since I wasn't carrying my mobile.

I am somewhat confused, as according the the Jeep India, website the Wrangler is the next vehicle in the pipeline. And there is no mention of the Renegade on the website. Can someone clarify where the Renegade fits into Jeep India's plans?

Wrangler was launched along with the Grand Cherokee almost a year back. Renegade may come next year.

Vehicle line up lowest to highest end:
Renegade - Compass- Wrangler - Cherokee- SRT

The last three are CBU's and hence cost a bomb vis-a-vis what they should have.

Renegade is so far the entry level model for stepping into the Jeep family. Since the launch is fair bit away it does not find a mention on the Jeep website.

Indeed, the Wrangler costs a bomb.

Just checked with the dealer in the city. Petrol version around INR 75 lacs; add another INR 10 lacs for the diesel version.

The demo vehicle has just been received by the dealer and for the next two days, all the slots are booked.

Isn't Renegade a segment lower than the compass? How can compass jeopardise the sale of Renegade?

Well 2000cc is a pleasant surprise for me. I thought they would just plonk the 1.6L multijet in the Renegade. Or am I missing something here? It would fill the gap between Brezza/Ecosport and Creta IMO, so will it really come with the 2.0L multijet? If not, why not to test with the 1.6L itself.
At more than 1.5 ton, this vehicle is HEAVY. Cars above it are lighter in weight.

The sales guy at Pride Motors informed me yesterday, via a text message, the the Renegade is expected to be launched some time next year at around INR 16 lacs.

Thats not possible compass is 15lac starting then how can this be 16lac starting when its below compass in global range. Maybe some variants maybe around the 16lac mark but starting 16lac is impossible since Compass is better in almost every regard.
