All brands are recognized for some quality: BMW for its sportiness, Mercedes for its comfort and Jeep for its SUVs. The American brand has been showing the world what its cars are capable of doing off the asphalt for more than seven decades. The new additions don’t seem to have those qualities, but they do. The new electric B-SUV has been presented as an ideal solution for getting around the city in a sustainable way, but if we take that concept and animate it a bit, the result is the Jeep Avenger 4×4 Concept. A small electric SUV that seems capable of facing anything.
The presentation of the prototype has taken place just a few hours after the official presentation of the Jeep Avenger. With the name of “Avenger”, the Americans are introduced in a new segment. It will be the smallest model of the house, and also the first 100% electric of the family. A turning point for a brand that for many years has been stuck in a country conservatism from which it has emerged thanks to its incorporation into the ranks of the Stellantis Group.
In the words of its creators, the Avenger is already capable of showing the best performance in its category off the asphalt. With an improper ground clearance for a B-SUV, 20 centimeters, Jeep has not overlooked offroad dimensions. The Avenger 4×4 Concept slightly improves on those figures, achieving an approach angle of 21 degrees, a breakover angle of 20 degrees and a departure angle of 34 degrees.. There is nothing similar among its rivals, including the Peugeot e-2008 and the Opel Mokka-e with which it shares a platform.
At Jeep they know that figures are just as important as appearance and for that reason they have decorated the Avenger 4×4 Concept with considerable touch-ups. The prototype looks wider, beefier and more capable. Bumpers, wheel arches, hood, roof bars, lighting and tires. Everything about it screams country and adventure, which makes it all the more difficult to know that it may very well never make it to dealerships.. What is more likely is that Jeep will include in the range some finish that partially simulates the format of the prototype, thus allowing customers to have an electric SUV with a truly imposing appearance.
During the presentation the CEO of Jeep, Christian Meunier, commented: “The Avenger has been designed like a Jeep from the start and the electric 4×2 model already offers some capabilities best in class that identify the Jeep brand. Yet we couldn’t help but wonder, what if we inject the Jeep brand’s electric four-wheel drive capabilities into a compact package while retaining the brand’s unique design language, capability and personality? The Jeep Avenger 4×4 Concept is the answer to that question.
