The Renegade was also the slowest seller in the Jeep stable last year, with the Grand Cherokee topping the table with 2986 sales, followed by the Wrangler (1153), Compass (818) and Cherokee (492).
Jeep’s small SUV contender no longer showing on the brand’s Australian website, and its discontinuation will make the Compass the new entry nameplate to the brand’s range from $28,850 in front-drive Sport trim.
For reference, the Renegade was priced from $26,290 for the manual Sport, while the top-spec Trailhawk was priced at $40,290.
The mechanically related Fiat 500X is safe however, with the model still listed on the local website and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Australia confirming it will continue to be offered after last being updated locally in early 2018.
It remains unclear if Jeep Australia will take the plug-in Renegade 4xe that will make production later this year, but that would depend on a viable business case for the usually pricier electrified powertrain.
