2015 Jeep Renegade chassis, body & exterior redesign:
Calling the 2015 Jeep Renegade a Crossover is a crime, it’s trail rated Active Drive Low four-wheel drive system and a 20 mm lift kit, riding on 17 in alloy wheels, skid plates, front and rear tow hooks, and unique front and rear fascias make it a full SUV although in small size. The 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk will feature red front tow hooks, a red ‘Trail Rated 4X4’ badge, a black vinyl hood decal and alloy wheels with black highlights. The Trailhawk model portrays the Renegade’s off-road capabilities, and is meant for the real off-roader. The Short wheelbase & wide body makes excellent trail companion. Curves and irregular roads or no roads are handled well by this 2015 Jeep Renegade. Jeep has this designed keeping in mind it’s legacy of the past era, when there used to be smaller, capable and die hard little vehicles with a raw rugged design. Jeep’s portfolio of rather large vehicles slowly departed from those ideals and this model perfectly reconnects the company with it’s legendary history. This little marvel is well built, tough, and a real SUV with all the new gadgets and refinements. Although this Platform shares it’s underpinnings with Fiat 500X, it’s quite different from that model in many ways. One distinct design element is the X on the tail lamps that resembles an old jerrycan!

2015 Jeep Renegade release date & Price
2015 Jeep Renegade is ready, their website is up and details are available (although we have dug-out the engine ratings from our seouces and are not available on the official page.) So we could expect the vehicle to be available very soon. Expect it to be prices below the US $ 20K range. Options and accessories will surely place a premium on the above mentioned price and it is just speculation. you get the idea how much it may cost, I feel it’s a great vehicle for couples, lone rangers, campers and other independent people who would want to head down the road, have a powerful yet capable, short wheelbase vehicle for their adventure trips. It is also good to drive in the city and does well in the parking slots too!
