Although you shouldn’t get excited about the latter, as Jeep is unlikely to take their little crossover over to Chrysler’s high-performance SRT brand, the rendering above is doing a pretty good job at trying to guess some of the styling changes the Renegade might get as an SRT.
The most important modification to the front fascia is the addition of a more aggressive, body-colored spoiler and apron, which it appears to have been sourced from the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. A new set of multi-spoke wheels and a slightly larger hood bulge are the other details that sets this vehicle apart from the regular Renegade pack.
Unfortunately, SRT’s 6.4-liter V8 mill won’t fit in the crossover’s small engine bay, so you might as well forget about pulling 13-second quarter mile runs in a Renegade anytime soon.
In case you’ve missed last week’s news, the smallest Jeep-badged crossover yet will arrive in global showrooms by the end of the year with no less than 16 powertrain combinations. The company will offer a range of Fiat-sourced MultiAir and MultiJet II engines, as well as Chrysler’s nine-speed automatic.
Four trim levels will be available, including a trail rated Trailhawk 4x4, while production will take place in Italy, alongside the upcoming Fiat 500X.
