Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Australia has today announced price reductions across the newly launched Jeep Renegade range, following a push by the company to align pricing with other models in the brand’s range.
Price reductions range from $1500 to $2500, with the entry-level Renegade Sport now priced from $28,000 plus on-road costs (was $29,500) for the five-speed manual and $31,000 plus on-road costs for the six-speed dual-clutch automatic (was $32,500).
Further up the range, the Renegade Longitude has been reduced in price from $34,500 to $33,000 plus on-road costs in six-speed dual-clutch automatic form.
The biggest price reduction lays with the Renegade Limited, which is the penultimate model and benefits from a $2500 price reduction, now retailing for $36,000 (was $38,500).
Finally, the top-specification Renegade Trailhawk is now priced from $40,000 — down from $41,500.
Drive away pricing is available on Renegade Sport at $29,000 for the entry-level manual and $32,000 for the entry-level automatic.
Customers that bought a Renegade at its retail price since launch will receive money back from FCA Australia to compensate them for price variations, so buyers won’t be any worse off as a result of the pricing change.
CarAdvice criticised pricing of the Renegade at its local launch, coming in much higher than competitors in its market segment.
