2024 Jeep Avenger preview: price, specs and release date

2024 Jeep Avenger EV


Posted April 08, 2024

Jeep has confirmed its first all-new fully electric vehicle, the Jeep Avenger small SUV, will arrive before the end of the year in Australia priced from $53,990.

Already on sale in Europe, the compact electric Jeep Avenger has been praised for its functionality, style and technology, and was named European Car of the Year in 2023.

The front-wheel drive small SUV is packed with technology and off-road capability, with an electric driving range of up to 396km (WLTP) expected from its 54kWh lithium-ion battery.

When it arrives in Australia later in 2024, the Jeep Avenger will become one of the most affordable EVs for sale.

Jeep Avenger exterior and interior design

The Jeep Avenger is a small compact SUV just 4.08m long, comparable in size to its sister car, the Peugeot e-2008, with which it shares a platform and many of its core EV technology.

It features a boxy, compact design, with short overhangs and will be the first front-wheel drive Jeep to be equipped as standard with Selec-Terrain and Hill Descent Control. Its 200mm ground clearance, 20 degrees of approach angle, and 32 degrees of departure angle, combined with Jeep's offroad technology should mean the Avenger is flexible both off-road and in its urban environment, where it should shine thanks to its diminutive size. 

The interior of the Jeep Avenger has been designed to squeeze plenty into its small frame. Like many small SUVs, the boot space is compact but the Limited and Summit models include a hands-free powered tailgate. Families will enjoy that it's a five seater including two ISOFIX points on the rear seat and one on the front passenger seat, and its clever interior storage throughout will maximise its appeal. That said, buyers may prefer the roomier Peugeot which offers considerably more space with its rear seats folded (1467 litres v 1053 litres).

What is the electric driving range of the Jeep Avenger?

The expected driving range of the Jeep Avenger is up to 396km for all variants, which feature the same 54kW lithium-ion battery.

Power is delivered by a second-generation, highly efficient 400-Volt electric motor mounted on the front axle that creates 115kW and 240Nm.

Weight management was a huge focus for Jeep designers who have kept the mass of the new Avenger to 1520kg. In the Longitude and Latitude models, Jeep says this contributes to electricity consumption of just 15.6kWh on the WLTP cycle.

The Jeep Avenger’s standard fast charging mode via a 100kW DC charger will see the battery range replenished from 20 to 80% in 24 minutes.

Jeep Avenger technology and infotainment

All Jeep Avenger models are equipped with a 10.25 inch touchscreen with Jeep's Uconnect infotainment solution. This allows drivers and passengers to connect their smartphone for Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto projection, as well as configure their infotainment interface across five pages with 12 widgets per page. 

Limited and Summit models include satellite navigation powered by TomTom and also gain a wireless charging pad, second row USB and expand upon the Longitude's 7 inch digital cluster with a larger 10.25 inch screen.


How safe is the Jeep Avenger?

The Jeep Avenger is fitted with six airbags. It is not yet ANCAP tested, nor has it been tested by Europe's NCAP.

All variants will include a full range of driver assistance features including Blind Spot Monitoring, Autonomous Emergency Braking with Vulnerable Road Users (pedestrian and cyclist) protection, automatic parking and 180-degree rear camera with drone view.

The entry model Longitude misses out on the front and side parking sensors that are fitted to the Limited and Summit variants as standard.

The Jeep Wagoneer S, is a fully electric SUV, with a sleek exterior design which is also off-road capable with 4x4 underpinnings. It is intended to offer a range of over 600km and 447kW power.

Both electric SUVs are expected to go on sale in Australia but no timeframe has been announced.
