Jeep Renegade celebrates a decade on sale with 2024 update

The refreshed Renegade now starts from £30,500 and comes with all-new technology

Available to order in the UK now, Jeep says the Renegade is the “modern heir of the Willys” – Jeep’s legendary WWII vehicle. Although with the slightly smaller Avenger now on the scene, the brand obviously thought some modernisation of the retro-inspired Renegade would be appropriate.

The most obvious changes are the new 10.1-inch central infotainment screen (40 per cent larger than before) and a 10.25-inch driver’s display. There’s also a new digital camera, USB-A and USB-C connectivity, plus wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. With its retro-inspired exterior design, the Jeep Renegade still manages to stand out in the small SUV class despite now having being on sale for a decade. That’s not to say it didn’t need a little help to keep it looking fresh inside. Jeep has come to the rescue, adding a new dash layout and some tech changes for the 2024 Renegade. 

Not only is the central screen much larger than before, it has a better resolution for a crisper display. That’s just as well because the infotainment has been refreshed too, with five times quicker processing, 4G over-the-air updates and simplified Jeep app connectivity between the infotainment screen and your smartphone.

Instead of Limited, Upland and Trailhawk trim levels, the range now comprises Altitude, Summit and Overland, with Trailhawk remaining as the true off-road focused model. Altitude comes in at £30,500, and has 17-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, LED lights front and rear, plus automatic air conditioning, automatic high-beam headlights and a digital rear-view camera.

Summit costs from £33,000 and has new 18-inch alloy wheels as standard, as well as heated front seats and a heated leather steering wheel. Overland is next at £38,000, focusing more on the Renegade’s off-road ability. It gets smaller wheels, wrapped in mud and snow tyres, plus off-road bumpers and black-painted wing mirrors.

The range-topping Trailhawk costs from £39,000 and has fabric seats, plus skid plates for the transmission, suspension and fuel tank. Exclusive to the Trailhawk, the ‘Selec-terrain’ drive mode system includes ‘Sport’ and ‘Rock’ modes too, which provides “enhanced control and adaptability”. The Trailhawk also gets a red tow hook, bonnet emblem and all-season floor mats.

The mild-hybrid e-Hybrid and 4xe plug-in hybrid versions are retained from before, with the former offered on Altitude and Summit and the PHEV reserved for the Overland and Trailhawk. 

These fresh changes come just weeks after the Jeep Renegade went off sale in the US. Eric Laforge, Head of Jeep brand in Europe, reinforced the Renegade’s position in Europe, however, saying: “The new Jeep Renegade 2024 marks a turning point. Thanks to these product enhancements, the new Jeep Renegade MY24 will continue to be one of the protagonists in the B-SUV segment”.
