Unveiling the Jeep Avenger: The Game Changer
Eric Laforge, Head of Jeep Brand in Europe, unveiled the Avenger with the utmost enthusiasm. He presented the vehicle as the ideal choice for those craving a compact, robust, and stylish vehicle that seamlessly blends state-of-the-art technology with comfort and fun.
The Avenger is poised to redefine what it means to own an SUV. It promises the thrill of adventure without compromising on your day-to-day tasks, like commuting, shopping, or even enjoying a night out.
Commitment to Electrification and Carbon Neutrality
The launch of the Avenger is a significant stride for Jeep, marking the advent of the brand’s “BEV wave”. By 2025, Jeep plans to introduce four fully electric vehicles, and by the end of the decade, the brand’s European sales aim to be 100% electric. This shift underscores Jeep’s commitment to contribute towards Stellantis’ net-zero carbon goals, as the auto industry continues to navigate towards sustainability.
Riding the Wave of Acclaim
Revealed at the 2022 Paris Motor Show, the Avenger has received accolades even before its full European release. It was named the Car of the Year 2023 and the Best Family SUV in the 2023 Women’s World Car of the Year (WWCOTY) awards, impressing industry experts and customers alike.
The vehicle has garnered considerable interest, selling 20,000 units since orders for the 1st Edition opened on December 1, 2022. The success of the Avenger is a testament to its design, off-road capability, and its promise as a “commitment to the future.”
Designed for European Needs
The Avenger stays true to Jeep’s DNA while offering a unique blend of capability, style, functionality, and technology. Fully manufactured in Europe, the Avenger addresses the region’s specific requirements. Its compact dimensions allow it to comfortably accommodate five people, making it the most compact Jeep to date.
A Dive into Design and Performance Features
The Avenger’s design offers 360° protection and unrestricted movement. Its 360-degree shock protection, protected lights, and color-molded skid plates are designed to make it an ideal companion for both urban and off-road adventures.
The Avenger’s interior continues the “design to function” premise, providing ample space for everyday items. It offers 34 liters of interior storage, equivalent to a carry-on bag, and a meter-wide, square-shaped trunk. Its design emphasizes flexibility and modularity, including a central tunnel that can be organized into multiple modular storage pockets.
The Avenger’s powertrain is a testament to sustainability, offering zero emissions while promising an adventurous ride. With a range of up to 400km WLTP and up to 550km in town, the Avenger proves that environmental consciousness doesn’t mean a compromise on performance. The fast-charging mode allows recharging of 30 km (average daily need) in just 3 minutes, and charging from 20 to 80% in just 24 minutes.
The Avenger leads the B-SUV segment in safety and ADAS features. It includes Blind Spot Monitoring, Autonomous Emergency Braking with Vulnerable Road Users protection, Lane Keep Assist, and Drowsy Driver Detection.
Pioneering the New “Jeep Wave”
The Avenger introduces a new Jeep wave, which will comprise of four fully electric models. The wave aims to reinforce the brand’s commitment to electrification and sustainability, which has already started with the Renegade 4xe and Compass 4xe Plug-in Hybrids.
