looks like a dual injected unit instead of multiple parts, better looking and more cost effective
It doesn't look as cheap now.
This is a example of where Daimler used to fail. The capital on the new unit is way more extensive, but the unit cost is much better and less complex. So overall at most it was a wash at best it was massive cost saving. That's why I used to say they would waste a dollar saving a dime. Good to see FCA properly looking at the life cycle costs over implementation cost especially considering how liberal the terms they got on capital.
These new engines must be sourced from Brazil or did I miss something?
Thanks, Poland is the most logical. Only asked because I've seen no official announcement.
There was an announcement in 2016 or late 2015. I can't exactly remember.
And most likely Italy in the future.
Engine blocks are made by Teksid. In Italy for Europe and Brasil for South America.
There will be also a Chinese production for GSE. AFAIK it's same with a GME.
For comparison, here's the 2015 interior:
The new one is a little more "grown up" (mainly because the the "SINCE 1947" stencil-lettering embossing is gone from the screen surround). Touchscreen is much bigger too, and AC controls are now the Chrysler type with push-button temperature setting rather than the "three-big-dials" version from Alfa Giulietta.
Updated interior, and slight aesthetic updates. Subtle, but well done.
I like the headlights.
Supposedly it will get the new GSE engines.
That is the most interesting part.....no confirmation of powertrains yet. I have seen the speculation, but nothing confirmed.
PS: I am currently in Chiogga, Italy and the Renegade seems to be very popular here based on anecdotal evidence.
First post. That is an official statement. Therefore GSE is officially official .

Nice upgrade, well done FCA.
What will be the NAFTA engine?
Too soon to tell but, if I have to guess, all the T4 gas engines......
