A Jeep representative on the other side of the Atlantic said that the Renegade will soon, starting in 2024, cease to exist in the Jeep range for the US and Canada.
It should be noted that, just as it is true for each of us, the Renegade is the entry-level model in Jeep for the USA and Canada, having a place in the range below the Compass. Its price starts from 29,445 dollars, while that of the Compass, which will assume the role of ticket for the Jeep range from 2024, starts from 29,995 dollars.
The Renegade has been available in the US since 2015, and its best year in terms of sales was 2016, when Jeep’s small SUV also recorded 27,549 sales. Now, however, given the peculiarities of the American market and the weakness of the Americans in the bulkier vehicles, its popularity has decreased with its sales in 2022 being limited to 27,549 units.
“Jeep will focus on the SUV categories that continue to grow in the US,” said the representative of the brand, justifying the relevant decision.
Obviously, this decision will not affect other markets as the Renegade will continue to be available in the markets of Latin America, Mexico, Asia and of course the European market where it is Jeep’s most popular model and is now available in addition to the electric version in gasoline others and mild hybrid version.
As for the rest of Jeep’s plans for the US, from 2024 two more electric models will be offered in the form of the exuberant Wagoneer S and the Recon, an electric variant of the Wrangler, followed by an all-electric version in the second year Compass as well, the American brand has announced that by 2025 it will offer electric versions for its entire range of models available in the US.
