While it looks like a true Jeep, the Avenger is front-wheel drive only, meaning it won’t get very far out of the way.
However, Jeep has imagined what a more capable Avenger might be like with the Avenger 4×4 concept that was also unveiled in Paris and says a production version is coming.
Christian Meunier, CEO of Jeep, said at the reveal: “In Paris, we showed that we have a full portfolio of all-new 4×4 electric Jeep models right around the corner.
In addition to all-wheel drive, which can be powered by an electric motor on each axle, the Avenger 4×4 concept features inflated fenders, widened rails, thick all-terrain tires, and increased ground clearance. vehicle and tow hook. . An additional underbody protection system has also been fitted, along with a light cargo system on the roof.
Jeep hasn’t said when a production Avenger 4×4 will arrive. Jeep also hasn’t confirmed the regular Avenger for sale in the US, so it’s likely any 4×4 version will skip this market.
Avenger is currently limited to Europe and some Asian markets. It goes on sale in early 2023 and will initially get 156 hp from a front electric motor. The engine will draw power from a 54 kWh battery that Jeep estimates will provide a range of more than 200 miles.
