Jeep Australia has confirmed the refreshed Renegade baby SUV will indeed make its way to Australia, currently earmarked for arrival during the second half of 2019.
Beyond the rough timeframe, the local arm wasn't able to provide further information about pricing and specification, simply saying these details will be "release closer to launch".
The news comes nearly a whole year since the updated SUV was revealed at the Turin motor show in June, with a mildly revised design and a new range of turbocharged powertrains.
While details of Australian models are unconfirmed, overseas the Renegade is now available with a new 89kW 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine, along with a 1.3-litre four-cylinder unit available in both 112kW and 134kW tunes.
There's also the plug-in hybrid drivetrain revealed at this year's Geneva motor show, pairing the 1.3-litre turbo petrol engine with an electric motor on the real axle, with a projected EV range of around 50km.
Available features on overseas models now include AEB, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and lane keep assist.
There's also LED lighting at both ends depending on variant, along with revised bumpers and front grille.
