Jeep revealed the Jeep Renegade Willys Limited Edition at the 2018 Sao Paulo Motor Show in Brazil. The vehicle comes with aesthetic improvements and good qualities, honouring Willys, the brand which produced the first Jeep vehicles. It can now be ordered even before its launch in the South American nations. Jeep desires to maintain the originality of the limited edition, so the American carmaker has decided to restrict the number of vehicles to be produced to just 250 units.

The regular version of the next-gen Jeep Renegade is scheduled to be launched in India in 2020. Once launched, it will be priced a little less than the new Compass which is likely to make its official debut at 2020 Auto Expo. As the Compass has been losing its popularity recently, it is necessary that the American automaker speed up the production of its three-seat row UV and compact SUV.
