2022 Jeep Renegade Is Going To Be A Looker

Off-Road / Comments

Updated baby Jeep has been shown off in a striking orange hue.

Jeep's most compact model, the Renegade, has been available since the 2015 model year in the US. The compact SUV received several updates through the years, with the 2019 model receiving cosmetic enhancements like a larger radiator grille, LED headlamps, and redesigned bumpers giving the littlest Jeep more presence. Minor trim and body changes were bestowed upon the Renegade late last year. At the time, Jeep only revealed a handful of images of the new Renegade, but we can now get an even closer look at it thanks to Stellantis in Brazil.

Whether this is a Brazil-only facelift or yet another upgrade for the Renegade planned for other markets too, Brazil's version - pictured here in Trailhawk guise - sports a few differences compared to the US-spec model shown late last here.

The grille has been reworked yet again, taking on a more upright stance when compared to the previous model. Adding an element of modernity, the headlights now feature integrated turn signals and daytime running lamps. Furthermore, the front fog lights have been repositioned and feature a rectangular shape.

Round back, the rear bumper has received a nip/tuck, with a more aggressive-looking faux skid plate. The LED taillights have also been the benefactor of a redesign, the signature 'X' detailing replaced with a more contemporary motif, slimming the backup lights in the process. In this shade of orange, we'd say it looks even sportier than the US-spec model shown last year.

Similarly, the cabin has also been the recipient of several updates. An 8.4-inch infotainment screen takes center stage and is supplemented with a digital seven-inch instrument panel. The vehicle is shown in Jeep Brazil's video sporting red stitching on the seats. The steering wheel is also new - now with a more pronounced center pad - and resembles the item found in the larger Compass.

As far as engine choices are concerned in the US market, all 2022 Renegades make do with a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-pot with 177 horsepower and 210 lb-ft of torque. It's mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Set to make its debut in the South American market early this year, there's no news (as yet) about when the revised Renegade will reach North American shores.
