Jeep Renegade Facelift also gets a updated rear section with revised taillamps and bumper

A Jeep spokesman in the United States said the company has "nothing further to announce" about when the tweaks seen in these photos would make their way to the US-market Renegade.

As previously teased, the Jeep Renegade has been treated to light revisions for the 2019 model year.

Jeep recently took the wraps off the 2019 Renegade facelift model.

Another addition to the front is the new set of fog lamps on the lower bumper with a clear-lens turn indicator above it. So far, only the exterior has been shown, and it does reveal a number of differences from the current model. Around back the changes are subtler, but highlighted by a new taillight design that had already been teased, plus a new liftgate that now has a prominent opening handle instead of the old model's hidden handle, beneath the lower edge near the bumper. That said, it receives a slightly larger infotainment screen which is supported by smartphone connectivity features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Slight changes have also been made to the fabric seats.

White House reportedly considering new economic penalties against Canada
The U.S. imports $417 billion in goods from the European Union , $294 billion from Mexico and $278 billion from Canada. The Mexican tariffs target USA pork, produce, bourbon, and steel - products chosen with a political objective in mind.

For European markets, 2019 Jeep Renegade will be powered by a new 1.0 liter, 3 cylinder engine offering 120 hp peak power. Additionally, there will be a new 1.3-litre turbo-petrol unit outputting power in two tunes-148bhp and 177bhp. Front-wheel drive will come as standard while all-wheel drive is available as an option.

Key rivals to the Renegade include the Hyundai Creta, Renault's Captur and the upcoming Nissan Kicks.

Jeep has officially unveiled the images of the facelifted Jeep Renegade that is expected to be launched in India.
