Jeep Avenger

Jeep Avenger

The Avenger, Jeep’s first all-electric model, is being marketed towards young couples and individuals considering downsizing. Despite its compact size, the Avenger boasts a spacious interior. This model marks Jeep’s reentry into the small SUV class since the discontinuation of the Renegade in early 2020.

With dimensions of 4084mm in length, 1776mm in width, 1528mm in height, and a wheelbase of 2560mm, the Avenger fits comfortably within the small SUV category. Even as a front-drive EV, Jeep is committed to maintaining its ‘go anywhere’ ethos with the Avenger. To aid in this, it comes equipped with six driving modes, including Snow, Mud, and Sand settings, along with hill descent control.

In keeping with Jeep’s tradition, the Avenger features various Easter Eggs throughout the vehicle. These include the brand’s iconic seven-slot grille on each wheel, an embossed depiction of the model’s design journey inside the tailgate, and a windshield decal featuring a child stargazing. Adding to the model’s unique character, the Avenger’s indicator sound is a drumbeat.

Since January 2023, Jeep has been producing the Avenger, a subcompact crossover SUV primarily aimed at the European market. As the smallest vehicle in Jeep’s lineup, it sits below the Renegade. The Avenger was unveiled on September 8, 2022 and featured at the 2022 Paris Motor Show in October.

The vehicle is available in mild hybrid and battery electric models. It utilizes the STLA Small platform, an evolution of the CMP platform (eCMP for the electric model) initially developed by the PSA Group. This platform is also shared with the Peugeot 2008, Opel Mokka, and DS 3 Crossback.

The Avenger boasts a ground clearance of 200 mm (7.9 inches), a 20-degree approach angle, and a 32-degree departure angle. It comes equipped with Jeep’s “Selec-Terrain” drive mode, offering Normal, Eco, Sport, Snow, Mud, and Sand modes, as well as Hill Descent Control.

Designed in Italy and manufactured in Poland, the Avenger is mainly marketed in Europe, with plans to expand sales to Turkey, Morocco, Japan, and South Korea. However, it is not available in the United States, Canada, or China. Deliveries began in early 2023, with Jeep aiming for an annual production of 110,000 units. The Avenger has also been confirmed for release in Australia in 2024.

Jeep Avenger EV And Hybrid Models

The Avenger EV, the battery-electric version of the vehicle, was available before the petrol-powered variant and is the only version offered in most markets.

It features a 400 V front-mounted electric motor produced by Emotors that generates 156 PS (154 hp; 115 kW) and 260 Nm (26.5 kg/m; 192 lb/ft) of torque. With its 54 kWh battery, the Avenger EV offers a WLTP range of up to 400 km (250 mi) (550 km (340 mi) in urban cycle).


The Jeep Avenger is a subcompact crossover SUV produced by Jeep (Stellantis), with production beginning in 2023. The vehicles are assembled in Tychy, Poland, at the Stellantis Poland facility. The Avenger is classified as a class B 5-door SUV and is available in both front-engine, front-wheel-drive and front-motor, front-wheel-drive (EV) layouts.

This model is built on the Common Modular Platform, which allows for the integration of various powertrain systems. It offers a petrol engine option, specifically the 1.2 THP (EB2ADTD) l3 turbo. For the electric vehicle (EV) variant, it uses a front-motor, front-wheel-drive layout.

In terms of power output, the petrol version delivers 100 PS (99 hp; 74 kW), while the EV version offers a more potent 156 PS (154 hp; 115 kW). The transmission system comes with a 6-speed manual setup, and there’s also a mild hybrid drivetrain available.

The Avenger’s electric range is impressive, offering up to 400 km (250 mi) under the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). This is made possible by a 54 kWh lithium-ion battery. Charging options include 11 kW (AC) and 100 kW (DC).

Dimension-wise, the Avenger has a wheelbase of 2,560 mm (100.8 in), a length of 4,084 mm (160.8 in), a width of 1,776 mm (69.9 in), and a height of 1,528 mm (60.2 in). The curb weight ranges from 1,182 to 1,536 kg (2,606–3,386 lb), depending on the chosen configuration and options.


The electric Jeep Avenger, while sharing its foundational architecture with the Peugeot e-2008 and Vauxhall Mokka Electric, has been designed and engineered to be distinct and unique. This is not merely a case of the same vehicle being repackaged with different exterior aesthetics.

The Jeep Avenger’s underpinnings, or platform, are indeed shared with the Peugeot e-2008 and the Vauxhall Mokka Electric. This commonality is a result of the adoption of the STLA Small platform, initially developed by the PSA Group. This shared platform strategy is increasingly common in the automotive industry, as it allows manufacturers to streamline production processes, share development costs and more efficiently use resources.

Avenger Retains Jeep’s Iconic Design

However, Jeep has taken significant steps to ensure that the Avenger is more than just a rebadged version of its platform-sharing counterparts. The Avenger retains Jeep’s iconic design language, with its rugged and adventurous aesthetic that sets it apart from the more urban-focused designs of the Peugeot e-2008 and Vauxhall Mokka Electric.

Beyond the exterior styling, the Avenger also differentiates itself through its performance characteristics and features. For instance, it comes equipped with Jeep’s “Selec-Terrain” drive mode, offering options such as Normal, Eco, Sport, Snow, Mud, and Sand modes, as well as Hill Descent Control. These features underscore Jeep’s commitment to off-road capability and adventure-ready vehicles, something that distinguishes the brand from many of its competitors.

In summary, while the electric Jeep Avenger does share its underpinnings with the Peugeot e-2008 and Vauxhall Mokka Electric, it is far from being a mere clone. Through its distinct design, performance characteristics, and feature set, the Avenger stands as a unique offering within the shared platform group, embodying the spirit and heritage of the Jeep brand.

Why is the Jeep Avenger not in the US?

The Jeep Avenger is not available in the U.S. market primarily due to its size. The Avenger operates within the B-segment, which is popular in European markets but less so in the United States. American consumers generally show a preference for midsize and large SUVs over smaller models like the Avenger, as a spokesperson from the Jeep brand explained.
