2020 Jeep Renegade will be the new hybrid plug-in small compact crossover on the market. The management of the Fiat Chrysler group announced that as the part of the five-year plan. As they said, it should be the new version of the well-known model, this time more attractive to hybrid crossovers’ drivers. Knowing how much the class of the large vehicles has been changed in the past few years, this is actually not surprising at all. Let us remind you that the other manufacturers have already changed their trucks and crossovers to plug-in hybrids. Some of them, like Ram 1500 has never been part of the classic green car class before, but that happened last year, too. On the other hand, Chrysler Pacifica was already showed up as a plug-in hybrid, and it calculated great selling season last year.
Just as we expected a few small changes in the design of the last year model, 2020 Jeep Renegade could be redesigned in order to accept the new electric engine. We are not sure how that change will look like, as well as how much it will be different from the last year model. However, we are sure that the manufacturer will not change the recognizable gridded front end with rounded lights and the squared shape of the rear end, in combination with the flat roof.
It is still too early to say how the 2020 Jeep Renegade will look like inside. The last year model had great large and roomy cabin with simple but soft seats. The model also should have the best technology in the class.
The engine that is planned to be sold on the US market in the new 2020 Jeep Renegade is actually nothing new for the FCA group. It should be a PHEV engine, placed on the rear end of the car, with the front-wheel driving system. Even though this engine will be a part of the Renegade next year, expect even eight versions of this engine before 2021. Along with Renegade, the same plant will make an electric engine for the Fiat 500X.
2020 Jeep Renegade Release Date and Price
Since all of these novelties are announced for the next year, we are thrilled to see how the new 2020 Jeep Renegade with a plug-in hybrid will look like. As there are not many changes in the design of the car, we cannot say how the last year price of $20,000 for the base model will be changed. However, expect numerous changes and novelties and the new car made in a new factory in Melfi in Italy. Expect even 30 hybrid models that will be made in FCA group in future two or three years for the US market, along with the 12 models that will be sold around the world.
