Jeep Renegade India Launch Not In The Offing!

While the focus currently lies entirely on the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee, Jeep has no plans of bringing the Renegade compact SUV anytime soon. We will eventually have the Renegade being built at FIAT’s Ranjangaon facility though. India will get an all-new C-Segment SUV, which will replace the Jeep Compass and Patriot internationally. The Renegade has been spotted testing in India on multiple occasions fueling rumours of its launch in India. However, Jeep has been using these test mules to tune their new platform for an all-new product that will come to India in 2017.
