We all know that the Jeep Renegade is going to get an upgrade soon and while we thought that the vehicle will only be getting an exterior upgrade, it seems like it might be more than that as new report suggests that the Jeep Renegade would be coming with a hybrid powertrain as well.

This was after spies spotted the Jeep Renegade getting tested out in the open with an electric shock warning sign in the window. This is not something we see on most test vehicle so it is odd that it would appear on the Jeep Renegade. Some people believe that this could mean that the vehicle might be powered by some sort of electric engine.

Some people think that it could also be something like the four-cylinder engine that the Wrangler is sporting. The engine featured a 48-volt electrical system with a starter for assistance.

The updated Jeep Renegade should be making an appearance this year.
