Details of the new and updated Jeep models launching in Australia in 2015.
Jeep Grand Cherokee update – Q1
The flagship Summit version will be the first in this big Jeep’s range to adopt a heavily revised interior, arriving first quarter with changes cascading to lower models later in the year.
America’s famous 4WD brand has yet to reveal details of the changes, though CarAdvice understands cool new technology and upgraded materials will be the stand-outs.
Refinement levels will be raised with tech based on noise-cancelling headphones, which insiders say will bring a “whisper quiet” driving experience.

Jeep Renegade – Q4
After years in the planning pipeline wilderness, Jeep’s smallest off-roader yet hits the showroom trail in 2015.
We’ll drive the new Renegade overseas in February before it reaches our shores in the fourth quarter.
Just 4.2 metres long, the Renegade should bring class-leading off-road ability to the baby SUV segment – especially in Trailhawk guise that brings higher ground clearance and greater approach/departure angles.
Engines are expected to comprise 1.6-litre four-cylinder, 1.4-litre turbo four-cylinder and a 2.4-litre four-cylinder. Pricing is likely to range from about the mid-$20K mark to mid-$30K.
