No! This is not a Deja-Vu. The Jeep renegade has been spied testing once again. Two Motoroids fans, Vishal Zadoo and Nayan Trehan sent us images as well as a spy video featuring a test mule of the Renegade making test runs in Pune.
The test mule of the premium compact SUV has been spied on previous occasions as well. This time though, the video reveals the signature grille of the company hidden under a camouflage. Images suggest that the model will also feature ORVMs with integrated indicators. The model has been testing for quite some time in the country although the model will not be introduced in the Indian market. Instead the company will be introducing the Jeep 551 in the country.
Powering the Jeep Renegade globally are the 1.4 litre and 2.4 litre diesel engines. According to import data available on the web, the model seen in the images and video is powered by a 2.0 litre four cylinder diesel engine. The recurring spy images hint at an impending launch that is likely to happen after the company commences its operations in the country. Once launched, the Jeep Renegade will be the entry level model for the company.
Jeep, a brand owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) made its Indian debut at the 2016 Auto Expo held earlier this year. The company showcased its models such as the Wrangler Unlimited, Grand Cherokee and its high performance version, the Grand Cherokee SRT. The company is yet to begin its operations in India although it is likely to happen soon.
Here is an image gallery of the Jeep Renegade that was spied testing:
