The 80-year-old version of the Jeep Renegade Connected begins with the flexible version with a six-speed automatic transmission at R $ 123,490. In the turbodiesel variant, with nine-speed automatic transmission and 4×4 traction, the 80-year-old series starts at R $ 164,590.
The Adventure Intelligence package can also be purchased as an option. In the Moab version the package costs R $ 2,500, for Trailhawk and Longitude the price is R $ 2,000, the three models have a 2.0 turbodiesel engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission.
For R $ 1,500 the connectivity package will also be available in the flexible versions Limited and Longitude. In that case, the engine is a flexible 1.8 with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Application with features
As at GM and Ford, Jeep will offer a smartphone app that will connect to the vehicle. It will also be possible to access the features through a smartwatch.
With this, the owner has access, even at a distance, to information on autonomy, tire pressure, the next overhaul and even the possibility to lock or unlock the vehicle remotely. In the app, the owner will be notified in case of attempted theft.
The Adventure Intelligence application also has an intelligent navigation map that allows you to program a route and trip before using the smartphone and then mirror the information on the 8.4 “multimedia center screen. The map has information about radars and gas stations, for example. , on the way.
The service also allows you to create parameters such as the Valet mode. With it it is possible to limit how far the car can run and if it leaves a pre-defined parameter, the owner will be alerted by the application. It is also possible to check which speed was reached by the car in that period.
