Jeep Renegade Price search resultsUPDATE: This story has been changed to incorporate new information.

While there's no shortage of excitement surrounding the new Jeep Renegade, one of the limiting factors to the little trucklet will be its price. With the Kia Soul starting at $14,900 and the Nissan Juke kicking off at $18,990, the Renegade can't afford to stray away from that price bracket.

Earlier today, it looked like leaked pricing info would keep it solidly in that price range. But the information -- which got us excited because we're intrigued to see where the Renegade will land -- was a glitch. Google's data bots pulled in the price for the Jeep Compass, showing it starting at $18,595.

When we first reported the story, we surmised that this pricing information could be a bit of a fluke, since that starting figure is identical to the current Jeep Compass. It seemed possible that someone behind the Jeep website or at Google may have plugged the Compass' pricing in by mistake. Of course, it would also make sense for the Renegade to pick up where the Compass left off; time will tell. We've now got confirmation that the Renegade information posted through Google was an error.

Todd Goyer, head of brand communications for Jeep, said the official price is still under wraps. "I can't comment on pricing. It will be announced closer to launch," Goyer told Autoblog.

While that's a disappointment, what Goyer added isn't. We can confirm that the Renegade should arrive in European showrooms during the fourth quarter of this year, while the US dealers can expect to see the new Jeep during the first quarter of 2015.

It is still extremely early for pricing on the new Renegade, but if Jeep plans to price the Renegade around the same price as the Compass, we think that's a rather reasonable goal. If we get any official information on pricing between now and the Jeep's European arrival in Q4, we'll be sure to let you know.

      The pricing isn't so bad since there will always discounts of some type. If the Trailhawk version handles off road at least as well as the Cherokee it should be fine. Being a bit worse off road then the Wrangler but nicer on road like a Cherokee at a lower price and more reasonable MPG is a good trade off.

      I have a wrangler Rubicon and I tell you what, everytime I see this Renegade Trailhawk I like it more and more to the point I might want one for commuting. I think this pricing is fake by the way, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's 1k more than the competitors mentioned in the article. I think they hit the styling on the nose. It looks great! The new Cherokee is selling well which is good, but I hate the rear end and the Escape rear end. They look like vans.

      I don't know why but this car is like a Siren's song. I'm so drawn to it. It's not even that good-looking but the styling just makes me think of adventure. Maybe it's because my first car was '98 Suzuki Sidekick that sucked on the road, but was awesome offroad and I had a lot of fun offroading it. The Jeep's styling is "cute" or even Asian-like, but it still looks like a Jeep. While I know some people gripe that this isn't a real Jeep, etc. a Wrangler is not a good car off the trail. It's dismal fuel economy is hard to swallow. Unless offroading is really your thing, I can't say a Wrangler is a good fit for most people. This Renegade seems to be a good compromise. Not as talented offroad, but probably a lot better to live with on the road. I'm curious to see how these will do in the market and also with reliability given they will be made in Italy.

        That's exactly how I feel. I should be looking at the Wrangler or the Grand Cherokee instead at this point in my career and life, but I love this Renegade and I'm going to seriously consider one when they're out.

          There's nothing set in stone that says what we should, or shouldn't be driving at different stages in our lives. If you like a car, buy it. Often times, we're told that if we've made it in life, we should be buying 'X' car, if we're starting out, 'X' would be the best option, or people should drive 'X' car because they can't handle much else (though this part I actually believe in, especially when it comes to SUV drivers - standard size, and larger - I'm almost ok with cute-utes). If you find something fun, appealing, neat, and/or quirky, go for it. Often times, people are too worried about what others think of them (and it confuses me why people care what the opinions of those who don't matter, are...I'm of the mindset that you have to have my respect before I care what you think). Being in my 30s and the owner of European sports sedans, I'm rereading my post, and thinking that I should take my own advice. Like you, I find cars like this fun. There are several makes, and models that I'd probably have a blast owning more than what I currently do. In a way, I regret not going for the fun, as opposed to something more sedate (but still entertaining to drive).

          Dean, I do agree with you, but with what I do, I have to meet clients on an ongoing basis and unfortunately what I drive do matter in this case. I couldn't care less what people think of me outside of work, but whether something like this Renegade will help me convey professionalism is still to be determined. :)

        Same here, and I can't figure out why. I don't like SUVs. I hate compact SUVs. But yet I kinda want one of these.

      I saw this weeks ago, but noticed the Compass was the same MSRP and figured it was probably that. As it turned out to be. I hope it's priced a little lower than this, but this is close to where I hope the price is. I really, really hope they don't try to price it as a luxury model like the Mini Countryman. Its character should be about fun and I think it should be affordable for people who are college-aged or higher (like me).

      If the initial information was a mistake, how about changing the title to something less misleading?

        It does replace the Compass. My guess is those numbers aren't too far off (also considering cost of the Cherokee).

      Pricing this somewhere in between the $18,595 Compass & the $15,995 Patriot (which is for the basic trim with no power anything) would be ideal. $17,495 and I think Jeep would have a winner.

      The Jeep Compass and Patriot are selling well even the introduction of the all new Jeep Cherokee. They should keep them in production until they stop selling in profitable numbers. They all have different styling and are still appealing to new customers. Sergio seems to be all over the damn place with marketing for each division . The all new 200 is suppose to compete with other premium brands and he has them competing with Hondas, Camry's and other mid-size non premium brands. That is what the Dodge Avenger is suppose to be doing. They should keep updating the Avenger until the all new Avenger replacement comes out in 2016. Chrysler needs to replace its aging 300/Charger brands. Keep the design totally different. Not sure what Chrysler is doing and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure all this out. The all new Jeep Renegade. It will have an all new market. I just wish Sergio would get the divisions set in the right course for the future.

        I think you make a good point. The transition and marketing process for FCA, although challenging, has been hit and miss and in some areas contradictory. I agree that the new 200 should have been a bit more upscale and frankly, although pleasing in overall style, more distinctive. In particular, the "new face of Chrysler" grill is bland and lacks the bold unique signature I.D. needed in a luxury brand. I also agree that the Avenger should fill that niche of entry level mid-size and let Chrysler go upscale where the brand needs to be clearly. The Avenger has the fundamental platform characteristics to be a real performance coupe and sedan and with R.W.D. the real opportunity to be something special further distancing itself from Chrysler, a good thing for both brands. Chrysler 200 absolutely must not be seen as a rental queen to prosper in it's market niche. The current positioning may yield some initial sales but will in the long run erode and diminish 200 sales and hurt the Chrysler brand. I share your desire that Sergio be patient with his new product and find the sweet spot for each. So far, hit and miss.

      If you like the dacia duster its hard not to like this too. Not the same vehicle but same concept.

      It's cute. Sorry but it is and they will sell like hotcakes... And they should call the 2 door "Jeepster".

      This car is perfect for active San Franciscans like me. The combination of small size and utility is awesome. I'm crossing my fingers for reasonable pricing at this point. As much as people are liking this car, if it's too expensive it will turn off potential buyers.

      I'll admit I had wanted a new Cherokee til I saw this. Now I want this instead! The price will be right for sure. I just wish they'd give it the 2.0L diesel that Europe is getting.
