The Renegade Hard Steel Jeep will be unveiled at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show. A product of style, off-road vocation, and technology, the Renegade Hard Steel Jeep was created by the Jeep brand in collaboration with the Mopar brand, with support from the FCA Style Centre. This showcar "explores" the potential of a model that offers countless customization options while giving a glimpse of possible Mopar accessories for the new Renegade.
This vehicle is derived from the Trailhawk and is not just a product of customisation in aftermarket. Rather, the Renegade Hard Steel Jeep is a design project that is considered as “a unique and fascinating article.” The showcar features a Brushed Steel livery, a bodywork treatment evoking aviation and marine technology.
It is further enhanced by a matte black colour contrast on the grid, roof bars, mirror covers, 16" alloy wheels, side rubbing strips, bonnet air vents, fenders and bumpers. This customization is continued inside the showcar; the Brushed Steel treatment can be found on the air conditioning vents, gearbox, glove compartment and audio speakers.
Light grey tone stitching can be found on the seats, the door panels, with the Trailhawk logo embroidered on the headrests. The Renegade Hard Steel upholstery is covered in Frau Century lead-coloured leather, designed to celebrate the brand's 1912 centenary. The Renegade Hard Steel showcar features larger BF Goodrich All Terrain tires, raised suspension, skid plate engraved with "Trailhawk" and bonnet performance.
It also features original accessories like a Mopar grille and opaque black mirror covers, black running board, floor mats and towbar. The towbar connected to the trailer incorporating the vehicle "vitamin-enriched" design. It becomes an "internet hotspot" thanks to the Wi-Fi developed by Mopar.
The showcar also boasts of a touchscreen display lade with the Uconnect LIVE system that allows access to Internet music (Deezer), Internet radio (TuneIn), news (Reuters), real time traffic (Tom Tom LIVE), and social network (Facebook and Twitter).
