Despite the fact that it was officially presented a few weeks ago, Jeep today revealed all the technical data of its first electric car, the Avenger. This B-segment SUV, based on the eCMP platform of the Stellantis group, is destined to become the new access proposal of the American firm, placing itself one step below the current Renegade.
From an aesthetic point of view, the Jeep Avenger is characterized by very youthful lines, something reinforced by the striking yellow color of its bodywork (Sun Yellow) and the contrasting black roof (Volcano Black). The seven-slot grille and horizontal hood quickly identify it as a true Jeep, albeit conveniently modernized thanks to features like blacked-out dual-height headlights and hidden rear door handles.
Some of its most characteristic features are shared with the Renegade (pilots in the shape of an X) and the Compass (C-pillar in the shape of a shark fin), although its forms are more stylized since it has a lower and more muscular silhouette than its predecessors. Older brothers. Although it is far from being an off-roader, its dimensions are not bad for its segment: clearance height of 20 centimeters, approach angle of 20º, break-over angle of 20º, and departure angle of 32º. Its wheels are 18 inches.
In the passenger compartment, we find digital instrumentation of between 7 and 10.25 inches depending on the version, as well as a 10.25-inch touch screen for the infotainment system. Practicality has been specially taken care of since it has 34 liters in storage space and a huge 380-liter trunk, similar to that of a larger compact (the Avenger is barely 4.08 meters long, like a utility vehicle).
The Jeep Avenger has 400 kilometers of autonomy
Its propellant assembly is the same that we can find in models like the Peugeot e-308. It combines a 156 hp (115 kW) and 260 Nm motor with 54 gross kWh batteries with 102 cells distributed in 17 modules. Its autonomy is 400 km WLTP. The pack has liquid cooling. In addition, an efficient heat pump is not missing either.
As for charging, it can reach a maximum of 11 kW in alternating current (0-100% in 5.5 hours) and 100 kW in direct current (20-80% in 24 minutes). Although the vehicle does not have all-wheel drive, it does incorporate the Hill Descent Control and Selec-Terrain systems as standard with six driving modes (Normal, Eco, Sport, Snow, Mud, and Sand).
The new Jeep Avenger will be manufactured in Tychy (Poland). Its commercial launch is scheduled to take place in the first quarter of 2023; In addition, the order book for the special launch edition 1st Edition has already been opened.
