After all, it'll be competing against the similarly priced Nissan Juke.
This past weekend, it looked as though official pricing for the new Jeep Renegade was accidently made available online through a Google search. For a supposed base price of $18,595, the Renegade appeared to be very competitively priced when compared to future rivals like the Kia Soul and Nissan Juke, which have starting prices of $14,000 and $18,990, respectively. Now, what was somewhat puzzling about the Renegade's price is that it's identical to that of the Jeep Compass.
So could Jeep have given the Renegade a starting price identical to that of the outgoing Compass? You know, just for continuity purposes? Well, Autoblog dug a little deeper and spoke to a Jeep official who confirmed the Renegade's rumored pricing was an error, and it won't be known for several more months as to how much it'll cost. What this Jeep official did confirm, however, was that the Renegade should begin sales in Europe at the end of this year, and will arrive in US showrooms in early 2015. If we had to guess, the Renegade's official base pricing still won't be all that different than that of the Juke, perhaps its most serious rival.
