It brings in its package innovations for the category, such as nine-speed automatic gearbox and diesel engine, refined interior and an extensive list of advanced technological items. The result is a current, efficient and enjoyable vehicle to drive. “One of the biggest opportunities for Jeep’s growth is in Brazil,” says Mike Manley, president and CEO of the Jeep brand. “We now have a locally built vehicle that fits perfectly into the Latin American market, with 4 × 4 capacity and unique technology in the segment. The new Jeep Renegade brings together like no other the spirit of adventure and the initiative of the Brazilian people and will attract thousands of new consumers to our brand. ” “The Jeep Renegade does not derive from any touring car. It was born to be a legitimate compact SUV, with the Jeep brand and with innovations not only for its segment, but for the whole national market, “says Sérgio Ferreira, general director of Chrysler Brasil and director of the Jeep brand for Latin America. “For all this we consider Renegade a watershed, a true reinvention of its segment,” he adds. Designed in the United States, the Jeep Renegade will be the first product to come out in early 2015, the new factory in Goiana, Pernambuco, the most modern Fiat Chrysler Automobiles group in the world. It is already produced in Italy and will be made in China in 2016, with sales in more than 100 countries, always with the same constructive quality. The commercial launch in Brazil is scheduled for the second quarter of next year.
A Renegade Jeep For Every Profile
With three trim versions, two engine options, three types of gearboxes, three types of traction and a huge ratio of equipment, the Jeep Renegade will meet all kinds of requirements from those looking for a compact SUV , either for the city, or to face more radical off-road adventures. The Jeep Renegade will have 1.8 E.TorQ flex engine or the unprecedented 2.0 turbo diesel MultiJet II, the strongest in the category. The transmission can be five-speed manual or six- or nine-speed automatic – another exclusivity in the segment. And the traction can be 4 × 2 front or 4 × 4, of two types. The versions will be Sport, Longitude and Trailhawk.
First of the category with gearbox of nine marches and diesel engine
Not enough the six-speed automatic, the Jeep Renegade makes history with the first transmission of nine gears between compact SUVs. This exchange brings many advantages, such as strong plucking, smooth power distribution and efficiency. Modern, quiet and robust, the 2-liter MultiJet II turbocharged diesel engine also delivers the highest power and highest torque in the class, with a respective 170 hp and 35.7 kgfm. Modern, this engine has great durability and is very quiet. The level of emissions is low, as well as the consumption level, which allows an autonomy of 950 km, enough to go from São Paulo to Rio de Janeiro and back, with clearance. And, contrary to what one might imagine, this diesel engine will be able to equip the Jeep Renegade from the entry version, Sport.
Technologies previously available only on larger vehicles
The new Jeep Renegade 2015 offers technology and safety solutions previously available only on larger models, making them accessible to customers in the compact SUV category. These include electric parking brakes, spot-blind monitors on the side mirrors, seven air bags and the award-winning Uconnect system – with a 6.5-inch touch screen, plus a 7-inch TFT multifunctional display in the center of the instrument cluster. With the ParkAssist system, Renegade becomes the first national car that parks the car in parallel and perpendicular waves, almost without driver intervention.
Jeep Style for a Fast-Growing Global Brand
From the outset, Jeep designers knew that the Jeep Renegade needed to have the highest off-road capability in its class, with proportions that convey the strong look of the brand, without neglecting the versatility, drivability and style. Finally, the Renegade had yet to offer the open-air freedom that comes from its 1941 roots with the Jeep Willys MB. The result is the new Renegade 2015, a vehicle based on the strong personality of the Jeep Wrangler, but with new solid lines and bold proportions. The styling details also tell a lot about the new Jeep Renegade. This is the case of the taillights, with an element in X that refers to the jerrycans, the metallic gallons of gasoline that were hung in the back of all Jeep MB. Another good example is the profusion of easter-eggs, little surprises scattered throughout the car. Some are quite visible, such as the red track of the spinner that mimics a puddle of mud, but others require more attention, such as the rubber rug on the center console, which displays the topographic map of Moab, Utah, a true Mecca for off-roaders in the USA.
Renegade, a name with a long tradition in the Jeep
Another great tribute to the history of the Jeep is the very name of the future Pernambuco model, with a long tradition in the brand. After all, Renegade was a version of the CJ (Civilian Jeep) between 1970 and 1983, the Wrangler from 1991 to 1993 and the Liberty (here, Cherokee) in 2010. In addition to being the name of a concept exhibited at the 2008 Detroit Motor Show, a bug with hybrid propulsion. A name whose meaning refers to daring, not to follow in the footsteps of the majority, to trace its own way.
Large, modern cabin with solid and dynamic appearance
As easy as getting in and out driving the Jeep Renegade – thanks to the Keyless Enter-N-Go feature with face-key and start button – you’ll feel good in the inviting and spacious cabin. With a high driving position and a high roof, the spacious interior of the Jeep Renegade looks energetic based on the legendary Jeep brand tradition. Precisely manufactured details; innovative colors and materials of great quality, such as leather lining; state-of-the-art technology and smart storage … All this was inspired by the equipment and lifestyle of extreme sports. All together for an excellent level of finish.
Solar roofs that repeat the typical freedom of the Jeep since 1941
Keeping the tradition of the legendary Jeep Willys MB, the Renegade provides open-air freedom with two amazing sunroof systems, both with electric drive. In addition to the Commandview, with double panoramic panel, exclusive in the category, there is My Sky, which is unprecedented in any segment. It has two electric sliding and tilting panels, which can be removed manually. Designed to be comfortable, polyurethane and fiberglass roof panels can be fitted into the base of the trunk.
Excellent asphalt behavior too
Extensive use of advanced steel, composite resins and new computer crash simulations allow the Jeep Renegade platform to offer first-class torsional rigidity and typical Jeep-brand durability. To top it all, Koni’s advanced frequency selector dampers give the best asphalt grip and drivability features. All with great running comfort, extended feeling by the steering with electric assistance.
Best segment off-road capability
The Jeep Renegade offers two advanced 4 × 4 systems to provide the best off-road performance in its class. Both can transmit 100% of the available torque to the ground in just one of the wheels, for an exceptional traction. The 4×4 Jeep Active Drive and Jeep Active Drive Low include the Selec-Terrain feature with up to five modes: Auto, Snow, Sand and Mud, plus the exclusive Rock Stone) in the Trailhawk version. The goal is to improve four-wheel drive, both on the road and outside, in all weather conditions.
