The small Jeep has been inspired by the Wrangler, its larger brother, and it kept its military boxy shape, coming with a high ground clearance, a seven-slot vertical front grille, 17-inch wheels with all-terrain tires and more.
The Jeep Renegade is riding on the same platform as the Fiat 500L and it has a steel monocoque structure with independent suspension, MacPherson struts at the front and Chapman struts in the rear, four disc brakes and a Selec-Terrain system. An open-air roof panel systems will be provided for the small vehicle, which has been called My Sky.
Jeep’s newest creation will become available with exactly 16 powertrain combinations, which will include the four MultiAir gasoline burners, two MultiJet II diesels and a flex-fuel E-torQ engine. These will be mated to two manual transmissions and a dual clutch DDCT with nine speeds. Mopar has already created a line of accessories for this model which include a rearview camera, air deflectors, roof boxes and more. The Jeep Renegade will be produced in Malfi, Italy, along with the Fiat 500X. No pricing details have been announced yet.
