2024 Jeep Avenger Price and Specs Revealed for Australia

While an off-road brand at heart, Jeep has produced its fair share of compact SUVs over the years with the Renegade, Compass, and Cherokee offering good value off-road-capable alternatives to the softer options on the market. It makes sense then that the brand would unveil its first fully electric vehicle, not as a Wrangler or Rubicon, but as a vehicle smaller SUV suited to everyday tasks like grocery shopping and school drop-off.

What they’ve created is the new Jeep Avenger. Designed and built in Europe, it’s set to arrive in Australia in Q4 of this year, priced from $53,990 plus on-road costs. It will take on the likes of the Renault Megane E-Tech and the plethora of Chinese-made EVs now in Australia, think MG 4 and BYD Atto 3.

Boiler-plate items start with an electric range of up to 396km (WLTP) from a 54 kWh battery that supports fast charging at up to 100 kW DC (20 to 80% charge takes 24 minutes). Power is sent to the front wheels only and is marked at 115 kW and 260 Nm of torque. These numbers are competitive, but they’re in no way class-leading, at least on paper. We’ll reserve our judgment for when we drive the vehicle.

The cabin is now typical of what you find in the competitors on the market. It starts with a large touchscreen that measures 10.25 inches and supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This is paired with a standard full digital cluster available in two variants (7 and 10.25 inches) depending on the model grade. We love the pop of colour across the upper dashboard and the simplicity of the centre console.

While it’s a front-wheel-drive vehicle, the Avenger comes with Selec-Terrain and Hill Descent Control, which, combined with 200mm ground clearance, 20 degrees of approach angle, and 32 degrees departure angle, is said to make a vehicle with ‘unexpected off-road capability’ for the segment.

Although, it seems Jeep is pulling at heartstrings with that suggestion and we wouldn’t be taking it anywhere near off-road tracks ourselves. That is until the all-wheel-drive, 48V Mild-hybrid powered, Jeep Avenger 4xe is brought to the global market. However, nothing has been confirmed for the Australian market for that vehicle.

What’s more impressive than any off-road ability (or inability) is the efficiency of the electric motors and powertrain. The range might be below average for this price point, but it’s an efficient 396km (WLTP) as it’s capable of achieving that figure with a small 54 kWh battery. For reference, the Chinese-made MG 4 can only manage 350 kilometres with a 51 kWh battery.

The energy consumption at 15.6 kWh per 100 km in the WLTP cycle is impressive, mostly due to the overall weight of the vehicle, which is listed at 1,520 kilograms, but it’s also aerodynamic for a box with a drag coefficient as low as 0.33. We’d expect realistic range numbers, even at highway speeds.

You can have your Jeep Avenger (from $53,990 plus on-road costs) in a range of fun colours: Ruby (red), Volcano (black), Stone (sand grey), Lake (light blue) Sun, Granite, and Snow. All of which can be combined with a black roof on certain trim levels.
