What engine options should we expect the renegade to come with?
So far I was able to find out it will have a 1.4-liter turbo four engine

A 1.3 liter turbo diesel would be great for the american market.
I know Jeep has plans for a USDM Wrangler Diesel, so maybe this will be part of their efforts to bring more diesels to the american market.

I thought about it, but I already have a '92 Dodge D250 CTD in excellent condition. Only a little more than 240,000 miles on it and I get 24 mpg when I'm not towing. Our camper fits this truck and I can tow the horse trailer with 2 horses in it plus extras. 4 wheel disk brakes, Banks exhaust and B&D exhaust manifold. I really don't need another pickup and I'm not going to replace it with one with a smaller bed (camper won't fit).
I only have just under 200,000 miles on my '02 Jetta TDI. This is the vehicle I will replace. Just saying that if the Renegade had an optional 2.0L diesel here in the US, it would not only be my daily driver, but (in an emergency) I could use it to tow the horse. Seeing as California (specifically southern California) has "Fire Season" 12 months a year. It would be nice to have another vehicle to use for towing if for some reason I needed it.
good choice, i've even heard how some eco 1500 owners are still trying to break the 20mpg market, so getting one of them you won't accomplish anything when it comes to mpg's
