The Jeep Renegade is getting a new appearance package for the 2023 model year, the automaker announced.
Based on the Latitude trim, the special-edition Upland trim pairs off-road looks with a well-appointed interior and upgraded content, Jeep designers said. The new package also accompanies the return of the Solar Yellow exterior paint color, which is available on all Renegade trims, including the Upland edition.
“The 2023 Jeep Renegade is a fun compact SUV with a big personality. These well-known characteristics are even more evident with the popular Upland edition, which is packed with legendary Jeep 4×4 capability, rugged good looks and premium appointments – all at affordable price point,” said Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “Our vibrant exterior color palette is something we take great pride in, so reviving Solar Yellow for the Renegade lineup is yet another example of a standout exterior shade that speaks to our loyal and avid Jeep community.”
The Jeep Renegade Upland has a U.S. manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $595 for the package, and features a matte black hood decal, an off-road-ready front and rear fascia, cornering fog lamps, automatic headlamps, windshield wiper deicer, Gloss Black badging, 17-inch aluminum wheels with all-terrain tires, 7-inch thin-film transistor cluster display, topographic black cloth bucket seats with bronze inserts, ambient lighting, Techno-leather steering wheel, plus Uconnect 4 with a standard 8.4-inch touchscreen display and GPS navigation, Jeep said.
The Jeep Renegade Upland 4×4 model comes standard with a 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission, and a Jeep Active Drive full-time 4×4 automatic system. The Jeep Selec-Terrain system, providing four modes (Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud) is also standard.
All Renegade models are equipped with more than 70 safety and security features, including standard Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking (not available on Trailhawk or Upland), Blind-spot Monitoring and Active Lane Management System.
In addition to Solar Yellow, the 2023 Jeep Renegade Upland edition is available in Alpine White, black, Colorado Red, Slate Blue and Sting Gray for a total of six exterior color options.
