European Car of The Year 2023 winner, Jeep® Avenger 1st Edition announces pricing, specification and opens for pre-orders

Pre-orders have opened for the European Car of the Year 2023 winner, Jeep Avenger 1st Edition, the brand’s first-ever fully electric SUV, with prices starting from £36,500 OTR.

Ahead of the full range launch in June, the limited edition Avenger is a modern, fun and desirable SUV appealing to customers looking for a capable, compact, modern all-electric Jeep.

True to the Jeep DNA, the new Avenger offers impressive ground clearance, approach, breakover and departure angles for its segment.

It delivers a modern and technologically advanced interior with class leading space for cargo and contents.

Thanks to the high power (max power 156hp, 115kW) and torque (max torque 260Nm) in addition to a specific e-powertrain calibration, the new Avenger offers uncompromised driving enjoyment on and off-road, providing a range up to 248 miles.

Jeep Avenger is fitted with a CCS 2 socket (Combined Charging System Type 2) supporting 100kW rapid charging, enabling 0% to 80% charge in just over half an hour, or five minutes charge to get the average daily usage of 28 miles.

It is available in a choice of three colours (Sun, Graphite and Volcano), all with black roof, privacy glass and 18” alloy wheels. The Avenger also comes with a three year vehicle warranty (or battery warranty of 100,000 miles in eight years).

The new Avenger is equipped with standard SelecTerrain and Hill Descent Control which, together with its outstanding approach and departure angles and the vehicle’s ground clearance, bring impressive levels of capability to the segment.

The Selec-Terrain® system offers six modes: “Normal” for everyday driving; “Eco” to enhance range; “Sport” for more driving fun; “Snow” for maximum traction on icy roads or trails; “Mud” to optimise mud performance and to enhance grip; and “Sand” to limit the risk of becoming stuck on sandy soil.

Avenger also brings next level safety and convenience features to a compact SUV.  It includes a 10.25” HD touchscreen Infotainment system, DAB, voice recognition, Apple Carplay/Android Auto, 360° parking sensors and 180° rear camera, level two autonomous drive (ACC with lane centering and traffic jam assist), wireless smartphone charger and keyless entry & go.

It also comes with blind spot monitor, an auto dimming rear view mirror, hands free power liftgate, traffic sign recognition with intelligent speed assist and rain sensors.

Since its launch, the new Jeep Avenger marks the introduction of a portfolio of new battery electric vehicles (BEV) for the brand in Europe showing its strong commitment to a future of sustainable mobility, which is in line with the vision of “Zero emissions, 100% freedom”.
