Default 2019 Renegade spy shots

2019 Renegade spy shotsJeep is preparing a minor update for its pint-sized Renegade as the vehicle approaches the midway point in its life cycle.

Today we have the first spy shots of a prototype for the updated Renegade, which should be revealed later this year, as a 2019 model.

The good news is that Jeep won't be messing around with the car's cute exterior. There could be just some minor tweaks made to the front and rear fascias, though it's hard to say with all of the camouflage gear.

Of more interest is what's happening inside. It looks like the center stack will be redesigned with a larger infotainment screen on the way as well as the climate control dials seen on the recently revealed 2019 Jeep Cherokee.

It's possible there will be some powertrain tweaks, too. We've got our fingers crossed the 2.0-liter turbo in the latest Cherokee and Wrangler makes its way into the Rengade as a replacement for the current Rengade's noisy 2.4-liter mill, though it may be a bit too powerful for the subcompact Rengade. In the compact Cherokee the engine is producing 271 hp.



Based on these recent spy shots, it looks like the littlest Jeep is getting a little makeover soon. They show a Renegade with camouflage on the front and rear, indicating there will be some changes to the outside. Whatever those changes are, they're extremely subtle. The headlights and taillights look untouched. The grille may have slightly wider slots than the current one, and the available fog lights look a little bigger.

The biggest change appears to be inside. Sitting in the center stack is a massive touchscreen. It's bigger than any available on the current Renegade. It also pushes physical buttons and knobs for controls lower down in the stack, instead of surrounding the screen. The lower part of the center stack has also been redesigned for this new button layout, which includes driver assist buttons, stereo controls and climate controls.

Fans of manual transmissions will also be happy to see this newer Renegade features a stick-shift. Part of that could be because this Renegade is probably a European model, based on where the images were taken. But seeing as this is a light refresh, and Jeep already offers a manual here, it should still be available on U.S. models, too. Also, considering how mild this update is, we would expect to see it revealed by the end of this year.

Hopefully we have more details on Jeep's updated Renegade soon. Stay tuned.
