Next Gen Jeep Renegade Will Compete Against $25K Ford EV

Late last month, Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares revealed that the automaker is working on a $25,000 Jeep EV that it plans to sell in the U.S., which is notable because the existing all-electric Avenger is only offered in Europe at the moment – with a starting price tag of 35,000 euros ($37,800 USD). Now, during the automaker’s recent 2024 Investor’s Day presentation, Stellantis revealed that this model will be based on the next-generation Jeep Renegade.

Though Stellantis didn’t offer too many details about this future Jeep Renegade, it did note that an all-new, next-generation version of that model is on the way, and it will be joined by an all-electric variant priced under $25,000. The subcompact crossover is a bit bigger than the Avenger and has been on sale since the 2015 model year.

What we do know about this affordable Jeep Renegade EV is that it will compete directly with a small Ford crossover that’s currently in development and slated to ride on the automaker’s new low-cost platform, which will also start out at around $25k when it arrives in late 2026. That vehicle was inspired by a trip that CEO Jim Farley and CFO John Lawler took to China some time ago, and is designed to compete directly with cheap EVs from that market. Farley views this new model as a strategic must for The Blue Oval, though its platform may also wind up underpinning an all-electric small pickup and rideshare vehicle as well.

This is just the latest electrified rival from Stellantis that’s aiming to compete with a Ford product, however. That list includes a pair of new electrified Ford F-150 rivals – the 2025 Ram 1500 Ramcharger and REV – as well as the 2024 Ram ProMaster EV, a Ford E-Transit rival.

    Just like the $19,995 Maverick?

    Fiat 500 EV or Jeep Renegade EV. Tough decision.

    I’ll Believe it when it is sitting in front of me with the sticker showing $25K. Stellantis seems to believe their vehicles are worth 50% more than the market seems to think. That’s why they are heaping huge discounts on their overinflated prices. Their least expensive vehicle is the tired old Compass which is a design from 2007, and they want over $30K for that piece of excrement.
