Early 2015

The new Jeep Renegade offers the rugged looks of an authentic Jeep model in the compact crossover segment – although being a Jeep, customers will be able to choose versions with good off-road ability.

Sharing components with the Fiat 500X, the Renegade is the first Jeep model to be built in Italy.

In the UK, the Renagade will be available in a full-range comprising four different trim levels – Sport, Longitude, Limited and Trailhawk – equipped with petrol and diesel engines and available in four-wheel drive or front-wheel drive configurations.
Standard equipment in the entry-level Sport includes air conditioning, DAB radio with touchscreen and Bluetooth, electric parking brake, 16-inch alloy wheels, tyre pressure monitoring, and remote central locking.

Longitude adds features including 17-inch aluminium wheels, six-speaker audio system, roof rails, body coloured door mirrors and handles, cruise control, and front fog lamps.

Limited version further adds 18-inch aluminium wheels, chromed exhaust tip, Forward Collision Mitigation, heated front seats and steering wheel, leather upholstery, privacy glass and rear parking sensors.

For now, at least, the heavy-duty Trailhawk off-roader version is only available with a petrol engine.
