Alongside hybrid powertrain, the new 2021 Renegade will also offer two more engines and a front-wheel-drive system as standard.
Besides that, the new SUV will get minor upgrades outside. Furthermore, the interior will also get some improvements, and we can expect a great arranged cabin and more safety this time.
2021 Jeep Renegade Is Recognized By Rounded Headlights
Thanks to its small dimension and unique styling, the new 2021 Jeep Renegade wears one of the recognized designs in its segment. Visually, the most outstanding arrangement that will separate this model from the rest of the Jeep models is round headlights, seven-slotted vertical grille, and rugged attitude.
The 2021 Jeep Renegade also comes with shorter overhangs that are ideal for rock climbing and the attractive 16-inch wheels. The traditional design will largely remain and some visual updates will also happen on the back. Taillights will use the latest LED technology and are slightly reshaped as the bumper.
