Jeep Renegade prices cut - again!

The Jeep Renegade range has seen its prices cut for a second time, bringing the US brand's smallest SUV more into line with its mainstream competitors.

The entry-point to the Jeep range remains the Renegade Sport, which is now priced from $26,000 plus on-road costs for the 1.6-litre petrol four-cylinder, five-speed manual model, while the 1.4-litre turbo six-speed auto model now attracts a smaller premium than it did in the past, priced from $28,000 plus on-road costs (previously, it was $3000 more). In fact, the Sport auto is the big mover, with the others shifting down in smaller increments.

Here are the differences between the prices:

ModelOld price (before on-road costs)New price (before on-road costs)
Sport 1.6 manual FWD$28,000$26,000
Sport 1.4T auto FWD$31,000$28,000
Longitude 1.4T auto FWD$33,000$32,000
Limited 1.4T auto FWD$36,000$35,000
Trailhawk 2.4 auto 4WD$40,000$39,000

There aren't any additional bits of equipment fitted to the Renegade range - rather, this is more of a revision to the pricing to try and get more buyers interested. In fact, the Sport manual model (pictured below) is being promoted right now at $26,000 drive-away - pretty sharp.

Here's what Jeep's local arm had to say about the changes:

"FCA Australia has been working collaboratively with the Jeep dealer network to secure an even more compelling price point for the Renegade," a statement from the company read.
