So what is it that has everyone so excited for the 2015 Renegade? In a word: everything. The vehicle lives up to its name, breaking the expectations of standard crossovers and offering up a best-in-class trail-rated 4x4 powertrain. Drivers will have a total of five terrain settings to customize the Renegade to whatever nature has to offer, and the nine-speed transmission ensures smooth control over the 2.4L Tigershark engine.
Despite carving its own path, the Renegade manages to copy one of the most popular features of one of the most popular Jeeps ever to be produced: the Wrangler's open-air feeling. The new crossover has a dual-panel open-air roof that can combine the modern aesthetics of the Renegade with the open-air nature of the Wrangler, making sure to fill the needs of drivers of off-road vehicles and urban crossovers.
With an optional Uconnect interface and personalized information display, Jeep has made their new vehicle one of the most appealing in its class, giving drivers access to amenities like a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel and leather upholstery that make it easy to get the best of both worlds in a Renegade.
The new Jeep will be available in the standard Trailhawk trim and the high-end Latitude trim, with each model coming equipped to take on mother nature with off-road ready wheels and front and rear tow hooks.
One thing that separates the Renegade from the bulk of other Jeep models is that it will be produced in the Fiat Melfi assembly plant in Italy even though it's a United States release.
