  • Sadly for followers of the adorably rugged little EV SUV, Jeep won’t offer the subcompact Avenger in America.

Don’t fret, all you EV-loving Jeep followers who reside in America. The corporate will not promote the 2023 Jeep Avenger—its first absolutely electrical model—within the U.S., however the electron-fueled Recon and tentatively titled Wagoneer S will fill that void after they each ultimately arrive on our shores in 2024. Whereas we wait, let’s take a better have a look at the Avenger, which right now made its debut on the Paris auto present.

The Jeep Avenger has been on our radar for some time now. We caught our first glimpse of it again in March when Jeep’s mother or father firm, Stellantis, introduced its future EV plans. Rather a lot was stated, however what actually caught our consideration was the picture of the chunky, yellow model that precisely previewed the Avenger’s look. Then, early final month, Jeep revealed particulars in regards to the upcoming Recon and Wagoneer S in addition to the Avenger’s official title, its manufacturing design, and that it would not be bought in America. Womp.

Jeep Avenger, Assemble!

The Avenger’s small dimensions are well-suited for Europe. It is significantly smaller than the already stubby Jeep Renegade—a couple of half-foot shorter, really. Jeep says the Avenger is about 4.1 meters lengthy, which equals about 161 inches, and it rides on 18-inch wheels. Due to quick overhangs, the tiny ute has a 20-degree method angle and a 32-degree departure angle. It additionally has about 7.9 inches of floor clearance. Jeep says it even has hill-descent management and skid plates. In fact, we doubt many Avenger drivers will attempt to deal with actually treacherous terrain.

On the Avenger’s core is a 400-volt electrical system that pairs with a single electrical motor powering the entrance wheels; a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive 4xe model is reportedly coming, too. Oddly sufficient, there will even be a gasoline engine choice accessible at launch, however it’ll solely be supplied in Italy and Spain. Regardless, the front-drive Avenger EV has 154 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. Its electrical motor attracts energy from a lithium-ion battery pack with a gross capability of 54.0 kWh. The Jeep’s DC fast-charging pace tops out at 100 kW, and that is stated to take the battery from 20 to 80 % in roughly 24 minutes.

Cockpit and Actually Cool 4×4 Idea

Inside, the Avenger’s cabin includes a clear dashboard design that is highlighted by a body-color panel that connects the entrance pillars and contains built-in air vents. Together with a ten.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, the driving force faces both a 7.0- or 10.3-inch digital gauge cluster. There’s additionally a parcel shelf bisecting the sprint that gives an ideal place to retailer small gadgets. The entrance of the middle console has a singular foldable magnetic cowl, and the house it protects has a wi-fi charging pad and may maintain a 1.5-liter bottle. Must retailer larger stuff? The rear cargo space will swallow 13 cubic toes of junk.

Whereas a tiny electrical Jeep is cool, particularly one that appears just like the Avenger, we weren’t too bent out of practice about its forbidden-fruit standing—no less than not till we noticed the rad Avenger 4×4 idea that Jeep additionally revealed on the Paris auto present. It options wider fenders and a wider observe in addition to chunkier tires. There’s additionally further entrance lighting and a singular hood with a black decal and a blue-trimmed vent that ties in with the opposite blue accents on the entrance tow hooks. We’re informed the 4×4 idea improves on the common Avenger’s off-road attributes with extra floor clearance and barely steeper method and departure angles. Evidently, now we’re a bit of bummed it is not coming to our shores.

The 2023 Jeep Avenger shall be constructed at Stellantis’s manufacturing unit in Tychy, Poland, and it is slated to reach in European showrooms early subsequent 12 months.
